    The developers of the Corebird native and modern Twitter client written in GTK+ for the GNU/Linux distributions were proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Corebird 1.5.

    Corebird 1.5 is a stable update of the application, and quite a hefty one.

  • FreeOrion, the open source game inspired by Master of Orion has a massive new release today

    The main big addition of this new release is the addition of Fighters and Carriers. So during battles you will be able to launch Fighters, good for attacking enemy ships, but very weak.

    They have also introduced basic support for alliances, but the AI cannot use it yet. They say it's mainly useful for multiplayer games right now.

  • OpenSpades Snap - pew pew

    OpenSpades is a super-fun "Open-Source Voxel First Person Shooter". I've been playing it for a while both on my GameOS desktop and under WINE on Linux. For whatever reason the upstream OpenSpades on github project had no Linux builds available for download, and I was lazy so I used WINE, which worked just fine.

  • Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues has another major update for RPG fans

    Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues [Steam, Official Site], the RPG from Portalarium has another major update released and here's a look at what's new.

  • Mech combat game Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps is now in Beta for Linux, very promising

    The Linux beta can be accessed by anyone on Steam, you just have to own a copy and opt-in to the Beta, no password is required.

    I should note, that the game as a whole is early in development and their Linux support is brand new too, so there may be a number of issues.

    In comparison to Heavy Gear Assault, another mech game that supports Linux that's in Early Access, Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps instantly feels more accessible. The controls are easy and it actually has a reasonably quick tutorial for the basics.

  • Heliborne is a pretty fun online Helicopter combat game that has a Linux Beta

    The Linux Beta isn't "officially supported", but it's there if you want to try it. The developers told me it should be live on the main installation with no opt-in required, but that gave me a "missing executable" error, however, the Linux Beta branch did work without issues. They state they just haven't had enough testing to put up a Linux/SteamOS icon on the Steam store.

  • Unreal Engine 4.16 Enters Public Preview State

    Epic Games on Friday released the first public preview of the upcoming Unreal Engine 4.16.

    There are many changes to find with Unreal Engine 4.16 while some of the highlights include volumetric fog support, a new clothing solver, optimized distance field lighting, garbage collection improvements, and more.

  • Unreal Engine 4.16 Preview

    A Preview of the upcoming 4.16 release is available now on the Launcher and Github. We have made this Preview available so that our developer-community can help us catch issues before the final release. As fixes are implemented, we will release updated previews throughout the development cycle. Please be aware that the preview releases are not fully quality tested, that they are still under heavy active development, and that they should be considered as unstable until the final release. Developers should not convert their projects for active development on preview releases. Please test on copies of your project instead.

  • Watch this highlight reel of iAlwaysSin's Alien Isolation livestreams!

    Last Thursday the newest member of the GOL Livestream Team, iAlwaysSin, completed her live playthrough of the extremely scary Alien Isolation. And, to commemorate this achievement (and all the deaths that occurred in the process) I decided to download and edit all the VODs together into a nice highlight reel. With my sarcastic remarks, of course.

Servers: Boltron, OpenStack, and GoDaddy

  • Announcing Boltron: The Modular Server Preview
    The Modularity and Server Working Groups are very excited to announce the availability of the Boltron Preview Release. Boltron is a bit of an anomaly in the Fedora world — somewhere between a Spin and a preview for the future of Fedora Server Edition. You can find it, warts (known issues) and all, by following the directions below to grab a copy and try it out. Fedora’s Modularity Working Group (and others) have been working for a while on a Fedora Objective. The Objective is generically called “Modularity,” and its crux is to allow users to safely access the right versions of what they want. However, there are two major aspects of “accessing the right versions.”
  • What you need to know about hybrid cloud
    At the center of hybrid cloud solutions sits open source software, such as OpenStack, that deploys and manages large networks of virtual machines. Since its initial release in October 2010, OpenStack has been thriving globally. Some of its integrated projects and tools handle core cloud computing services, such as compute, networking, storage, and identity, while dozens of other projects can be bundled together with OpenStack to create unique and deployable hybrid cloud solutions.
  • GoDaddy Drops Curtain on Its Cloud Business… Again
    Launched only a year ago, Cloud Servers was never intended to go after the big guys — AWS, Azure, GCP, and the like — and had no dreams of competing for well-heeled, big-business customers. Instead, it was hoping to position itself as a gateway to the cloud for small and medium sized businesses wanting to test the waters. In other words, it was hoping to take on DigitalOcean and Linode. It was also undoubtedly hoping to leverage the substantial base of its hosting business and convince some of those customers that their lives would only improve if they made a move to the cloud.

Kernel: "Secure Encrypted Virtualization" and New Blob From Nvidia

  • AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization Updated For Linux
    While AMD's new Epyc processors have a new "Secure Encrypted Virtualization" feature, the support isn't yet mainlined in the Linux kernel but is getting closer.
  • Nvidia 384.59 Linux Graphics Driver Adds Support for GeForce GT 1030 GPUs, More
    Nvidia on Monday announced the release of a new long-lived graphics driver for Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris-based operating systems, versioned 384.59, adding support for new GPUs, along with a bunch of bug fixes and improvements. Nvidia 384.59 is now considered the most advanced version of the proprietary graphics driver for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris platforms, which users should install on their personal computers running a supported Nvidia GPU immediately after reading this article.

Security: BKK, Password Managers, Kaspersky, Fruitfly, WHISTL, IoT and More

  • 18 year old guy arrested for reporting a shamefully stupid bug in the new Budapest e-Ticket system
     

    This last one was the one found by the 18 year old gentleman I started my story with. According to him, he doesn't even know how to program yet (he'll start the university this autumn). He just used the developer tools in the browser, that everybody has access to, saw that the price was being sent back to the server when he was about to make a purchase, and tried if he could change it. A monthly pass costs 9500HUF (about 30EUR) and he modified the price to 50HUF. When he got the confirmation that it worked and was able to see his pass in the app, he immediately emailed the BKK (the Transport Authority) that there was a serious problem. He got an email that his pass was invalidated, but otherwise they didn't get back to him. Instead, when it got leaked out to the press, and in a few hours everyone were talking about the above issues (not just this one), BKK together with T-Sytems Hungary started to what I would call massively covering their arses.  

  • How to use a password manager (and why you really should)
     

    Password managers remove both of these problems by generating and storing complex passwords for you. The password manager lives in your browser and acts a digital gatekeeper, filling in your login info when you need to get on a certain site. You just have to remember one (very secure!) master password for the manager itself, and everything else is taken care of for you. (For a quick introduction on creating a secure but memorable master password, check out this article.)  

  • US local govts still using Kaspersky software despite federal ban
     

    US local government agencies across the country are continuing to use software from Kaspersky Lab even though the federal government removed the company from a list of approved software suppliers for two government-wide purchasing contracts that are used to buy technology services.  

  • “Perverse” malware infecting hundreds of Macs remained undetected for years
    Besides the means of infection being unknown, the exact purpose of the malware is also unclear. Wardle said he found no evidence the malware can be used to install ransomware or collect banking credentials. That largely removes the possibility that Fruitfly developers were motivated by financial profit. At the same time, the concentration of home users largely rules out chances the malware was designed by state-sponsored hackers to spy on targets.
  • Exclusive: WHISTL Labs will be Cyber Range for Medical Devices
     

    The facilities, dubbed WHISTL, will adopt a model akin to the Underwriters Laboratory, which tests electrical devices, but will focus on issues related to cyber security and privacy, helping medical device makers “address the public health challenges” created by connected health devices and complex, connected healthcare environments, according to a statement by The Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium (MDISS).

  • Smart fridges and TVs should carry security rating, police chief says
     

    Barton, the national policing lead for crime operations, proposed the idea as part of efforts to protect households from fraudsters and hackers in the era of the Internet of Things, where otherwise “dumb” devices can be put online and be interconnected for automation and smart appliance activities.
