  • gtkmm now uses C++11

    All the *mm projects now require C++11. Current versions of g++ require you to use the –std=c++11 option for this, but the next version will probably use C++11 by default. We might have done this sooner if it had been clearer that g++ (and libstdc++) really really supported C++11 fully.

    Pixman 0.33.2 RC has many new ARMv6 optimizations, bug fixes for PowerPC 64-bit, and various other fixes and enhancements to the MMX code.

FFmpeg's Leader Resigns, Hopes To Make Libav Developers Come Back

Filed under
Software

Michael Niedermayer, the leader of the FFmpeg project for the past eleven years, has made a surprise announcement today: he's resigning as its leader.

Niedermayer is resigning as he no longer feels he's the best leader for FFmpeg, given the current Libav fork still persisting even after Debian dropped Libav and is returning to FFmpeg.

  • dmMediaConverter Review - Converting Videos Has Never Been Easier

    dmMediaConverter is described by its developer as an FFmpeg frontend (GUI), but regular users only need to know that it's an application that allows them to quickly convert files from one format to another, in a simple and intuitive way. It's not the best looking out there, but it gets the job done.

  • Goggles Music Manager 1.0.7 Adds Support for Ratings and Tags to Filters, More

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?

    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
