The company announced that itt is open sourcing the ManageIQ cloud orchestration platform, and it also announced some important new collaboration deals surrounding OpenStack.

Open-Source DisplayPort MST Is Under Review

Linux

The Linux DisplayPort MST code has been working for nearly one month and it's now undergoing further review by other upstream Linux DRM developers. Airlie wrote in a new mailing list post tonight, "So this set is pretty close to what I think we should be merging initially, Since the last set, it makes fbcon and suspend/resume work a lot better, I've also fixed a couple of bugs in -intel that make things work a lot better. I've bashed on this a bit using kms-flip from intel-gpu-tools, hacked to add 3 monitor support. It still generates a fair few i915 state checker backtraces, and some of them are fairly hard to work out, it might be we should just tone down the state checker for encoders/connectors with no actual hw backing them."

Red Hat Looking to Expand Into Indonesia and Cloud-Computing

Filed under
Red Hat

Red Hat Inc. has spent the past decade becoming one of the dominant commercial providers of the Linux operating system, but it is now looking to expand by exploiting opportunities in Indonesia, and in the field of cloud-computing systems. Red Hat Inc., which generated approximately 1.5 billion dollars in revenue last year, is expecting double digit revenue growth over the next year. This would follow 48 consecutive financial quarters in which Red Hat has shown revenue growth, but it is nonetheless a very optimistic expectation on the part of David Yap, Red Hat’s country manager for Malaysia and Brunei. This optimism, however, is strongly supported by indicators from the Asian Pacific market.

Programming: Developer Happiness, Rblpapi 0.3.8 and Python

  • Developer happiness: What you need to know
    A person needs the right tools for the job. There's nothing as frustrating as getting halfway through a car repair, for instance, only to discover you don't have the specialized tool you need to complete the job. The same concept applies to developers: you need the tools to do what you are best at, without disrupting your workflow with compliance and security needs, so you can produce code faster. Over half—51%, to be specific—of developers spend only one to four hours each day programming, according to ActiveState's recent Developer Survey 2018: Open Source Runtime Pains. In other words, the majority of developers spend less than half of their time coding. According to the survey, 50% of developers say security is one of their biggest concerns, but 67% of developers choose not to add a new language when coding because of the difficulties related to corporate policies.
  • Rblpapi 0.3.8: Keeping CRAN happy
    A minimal maintenance release of Rblpapi, now at version 0.3.9, arrived on CRAN earlier today. Rblpapi provides a direct interface between R and the Bloomberg Terminal via the C++ API provided by Bloomberg (but note that a valid Bloomberg license and installation is required). This is the ninth release since the package first appeared on CRAN in 2016. It accomodates a request by CRAN / R Core to cope with staged installs which will be a new feature of R 3.6.0. No other changes were made (besides updating a now-stale URL at Bloomberg in a few spots and other miniscule maintenance). However, a few other changes have been piling up at the GitHub repo so feel free to try that version too.
