  • ​No Reboot Patching Comes to Ubuntu 15.10 via Linux Kernel 4.0, Says Mark Shuttleworth

    According to The Inquirer, Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonical and Ubuntu, has confirmed that the recently announced Linux kernel 4.0 will be included in the upcoming Ubuntu 15.10 operating system in October 2015.

  • Linux Kernel 4.0 available in Fedora 22 Alpha

    Early this week, Linus released version 4.0 of the Linux Kernel. Now, this updated version of the Linux Kernel is available in the official Fedora repositories for users running the alpha release of Fedora 22.

  • Fedora 22 and Kernel 4.0

    The major version change wasn't done because of any major feature or change in process or really anything exciting at all. Linus Torvalds changed it because he felt the minor version number was getting a bit large and he liked 4.0 better. It was really a whim more than any thing contained within the kernel itself. The initial merge window builds of this kernel in Fedora were even called 3.20.0-rc0.gitX until the 4.0-rc1 release came out.

Filed under
Ubuntu

In addition to Web Apps, Canonical created another workaround to fill the gigantic ‘app-gap’. Instead of creating grids of apps to access different services or content, they created Scopes. Traditionally you open an app such as YouTube or Pandora then search for the desired track. In the Ubuntu Phone you start off with the content and then choose the right app for that media type.

Availability of Qt Free Edition

In my last blog posts, I explained the KDE Free Qt Foundation, which guarantees the free availability of the Qt Toolkit. Today, The Qt Company introduced a new Qt online installer that requires users to accept additional license terms. Many people have contacted me with concerns about this change. I share this concern. Even before this, I have already been concerned about the structure of the qt.io download page, since it blurs the lines between the Qt Toolkit itself and additional, proprietary products. Read more
