Dave Chinner has sent in his XFS file-system updates targeting the Linux 4.1 kernel.
Will Deacon sent in the "ACPI for arm64" pull request today with there already being 64-bit ARM hardware on the market that supports booting with ACPI tables -- or FDT tables. ACPI for ARM is possible in the latest revisions to the specification and Linaro has been focused on making the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface a reality for this x86 competitor.
Operating systems like CoreOS and Joyent's SmartOS/Triton have worked to redefine, in radically different ways, what an OS needs to be to run applications at scale in the cloud.
Now another OS is set to join the ranks of those trying to do the cloud-OS thing in a maverick way: OSv, an open source, hypervisor-optimized OS "designed to run an application stack without getting in the way."
Linux 4.1 will feature an updated Multiple Device (MD) driver to improve the RAID 5/6 potential for those relying upon Linux Software RAID.
With the recent big update to ZFS On Linux I've begun running some new ZFS Linux file-system tests. Today are just some preliminary numbers from running ZOL 0.6.4 with various RAID levels across six 300GB H106030SDSUN300G 10K RPM SAS drives.
This weekend over 1,400 nerds will convene at the Southfield Westin Hotel for the 12th annual Penguicon, a technical conference and social convention that marries sci-fi fandom with collaborative, nonprofit software development.
Presented by an industry expert Richard Copeman of Lauterbach, the workshop will explore how to approach a Linux project from the perspective of the development environment and debug tools
Undo Software - which this week announced a successful new funding round - will be available to discuss and explain its Linux and Android reversible debugging tools at the UK Device Developers’ Conference next month.
Still, as one of the longest-standing open source productivity apps, and one that played a major role in making desktop Linux viable, OpenOffice is a venerable project. Indeed, its history stretches all the way back to 1985 (when I was still merely an idea!), and it has been open source since 2000. If it folds, it will be one of the first big-name open source apps to do so—even if few people notice as they continue happily chugging along on LibreOffice.
If it’s spring, that must mean a new release of Ubuntu. This latest one is codenamed the “Vivid Vervet”, but – as has become common for Ubuntu releases – you’ll have to squint to spot the difference between this and last autumn’s “Utopic Unicorn”.
Ubuntu 15.04 has arrived, but not without a bit of controversy. Jack Wallen highlights what you can expect from the latest iteration from Canonical by way of drama and improvements.
Red Hat has announced its Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1, the company’s selection of some of the latest open source C and C++ compilers and complementary development tools. Available through the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Program and related subscriptions, Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 is targeted at application development for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but is also potentially useful for all kinds of developers and administrators depending on Red Hat's cloud tools.
Press release: Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 Now Available
The final version for the 15.04 branch of Ubuntu GNOME has been released and is now available for download. As expected, it comes with the latest GNOME 3.14 packages, a new Linux kernel, and many other upgrades.
Kubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) has been made available, and users can now download and install this pristine KDE experience.
Linux talent is in high demand, and the evidence is in the numbers. According to the 2015 Linux Jobs Report from the Linux Foundation, 92 percent of IT managers plan to hire Linux pros within the next six months. The 2015 Linux Jobs Report includes data from hiring managers (1,010) and Linux professionals (3,446) and provides an overview of the state of the market for Linux careers and what motivates professionals in this industry. With the rise of open cloud platforms positively affecting this ever-growing market, a new generation of open-source projects like Docker and OpenStack ensure the longevity of developers who can hone the most cutting-edge skills. Yet in the same report, 88 percent of companies stated it is somewhat difficult to find qualified candidates. Organizations are willing to pay big bucks for those with the right qualifications. To glean more perspective from a company that is constantly looking to hire the best open-source talent, eWEEK spoke with Marie Louise van Deutekom, global HR director at SUSE, to uncover tips for Linux job seekers and showcase which skills will help them stand out.
Canonical has officially released Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet), a Linux distribution based on Debian that uses the Unity desktop environment.
Back in October of 2014, I was lucky enough to be elected to the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) board. Because the association received its nonprofit status, the board is finally able to begin increasing its reach in the community. Many new initiatives are being discussed, and we've been collecting a lot of community input on what is needed in the open source hardware world. One of the main objectives the board has in mind for the next year is to continue building up the community interaction and awareness of the association.
GNU Parallel 20150422 ('Germanwings') has been released.
The middleware is designed to be used without modification as the system grows in capability while being scalable. Multiple instances can be run across different systems and the results should (eventually) be the same. I say "eventually" since in such a system one can not guarantee the exact order of events, only the exact results after some period of time. Or, in more familiar terms, it is eventually consistent.
Nearly one year ago, the OpenBazaar project began via a DarkMarket fork. On Tuesday April 21st, the fourth beta of the decentralized OpenBazaar marketplace was released for Linux and Mac OSX users. According to the release blog post, binaries for Windows users will be “released soon.” Unlike many anonymous dark net markets, OpenBazaar does not allow listing illicit items.
Syncthing is a cross-platform peer-to-peer file synchronization client/server application written in Go. The tool is similar to BitTorrent Sync (but it's open source as opposed to BT Sync), and it's used to synchronize files between computers
Vocal is a podcast manager designed to integrate tightly with the elementary OS desktop, which supports both audio and video podcasts, with built-in video playback.
