I am very happy to announce the release of GNU Mailman 3.0.
Over seven years in development, Mailman 3 represents a major new version,
redesigned as a suite of cooperating components which can be used to mix and
match however you want. The core engine is now backed by a relational
database and exposes its functionality to other components via an
administrative REST+JSON API.
Our new web user interface, Postorius is Django-based, as is our new archiver
HyperKitty. The core requires Python 3.4 while Postorius and HyperKitty
require Python 2.7.
We also have a library called mailman.client, which works in both Python 2 and
3 and is the official Python bindings to the core's REST API. The mailman-
bundler is a set of scripts that help building out a complete Mailman 3 system
in Python virtual environments.
There are tons of new features. See the detailed official announcement at
For those craving some more GCC 5 compiler benchmark numbers following last week's release of GCC 5.1, here's some new comparison numbers between GCC 4.9.2 stable and the near-final release candidate of GCC 5.1.
Pardon for this light article due to still finishing up work on migrating to the new Phoronix web server while separately working to take care of thermal issues coming about in the new Linux benchmarking server room.
So, to sum up: What Linus Torvalds, along with plenty of other hackers in the 1980s and early 1990s, wanted was a Unix-like operating system that was free to use on the affordable personal computers they owned. Access to source code was not the issue, because that was already available—through platforms such as Minix or, if they really had cash to shell out, by obtaining a source license for AT&T Unix. Therefore, the notion that early Linux programmers were motivated primarily by the ideology that software source code should be open because that is a better way to write it, or because it is simply the right thing to do, is false.
