LinuxCon Europe and Embedded Linux Conference Europe -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced the new Real-Time Linux (RTL) Collaborative Project. RTL will bring together industry leaders and experts to advance and maximize technologies for the robotics, telecom, manufacturing, aviation and medical industries, among others.
I have a much better appreciation for Linux after having worked on the series! To be very honest, Linux intimidated me a little when I had to use it at Pixar over my internship a few years ago. But now, I would welcome any classes on how to use it. There is such a strong, positive, intelligent community creating Linux together, that I am honored now to somehow be a part of that. Thank you, Linux!
I’m happy to announce another review of Manjaro 15.09 (Bellatrix)!
With this we repacked most of our packages against python 3.5. Please check if we have missed some. Also some of our kernels got updated: 3.18.22, 4.1.10 and 4.2.3. Last but not least we updated pamac to 2.4.2 and fixed some squashfs compression issue in our manjaro-tools for lower kernels than 4.0.
Also we ship the usual Archlinux upstream fixes (Sun Oct 4 08:25:34 CEST 2015)

After announcing the release of the Linux 4.2.3 kernel, Greg Kroah-Hartman has informed the world today, October 3, about the release and immediate availability for download of the tenth maintenance version of the Linux 4.1 LTS kernel series.
Debian's decision to move to systemd as the default init system was a famously contentious (and rather public) debate. Once all the chaos regarding the decision itself had died down, however, it was left to project members to implement the change. At DebConf 2015 in Heidelberg, Martin Pitt and Michael Biebl gave a down-to-earth talk about how that implementation work had gone and what was still ahead.
Pitt and Biebl are the current maintainers of the systemd package in Debian, with Pitt also maintaining the corresponding Ubuntu package. The pair began with a brief recap of the init-replacement story, albeit one that steered mercifully clear of the quarrels and stuck to the technical side. Initial discussions for replacing the System V init system began as far back as 2007, but pressure grew in recent years, included considerable demand from system administrators and upstream projects (typically wanting specific features like support for logind or journald). Once the Technical Committee had made its decision to adopt systemd as the default, Pitt said, "the real work" began.
You all know the drill by now. It's Sunday, and there is a new release
candidate out there.
Things look fairly normal. We have noticeably fewer commits than rc3
(which was fairly big), and I don't see anything unusually alarming.
The statistics look pretty normal too: just under half of the patch is
drivers (drm continues to be noticeable, but there's infiniband, mmc,
input layer etc). About a quarter is arch updates (m68k, MIPS, x86)
and the final quarter is solidly "misc" (doc updates, tools, scripts,
The appended shortlog gives a flavor of the details.
