  • Want an open-source deep learning framework? Take your pick

    Earlier this week, Google made a splash when it released its TensorFlow article intelligence software on GitHub under an open-source license. Google has a sizable stable of AI talent, and AI is working behind the scenes in popular products, including Gmail and Google search, so AI tools from Google are a big deal.

    Today on GitHub, TensorFlow, primarily written in C++, is the top trending project of the day, the week, and the month, having accrued more than 10,000 stars in about one week.

  • Go Bern Council! FLOSS!

    I don’t know why FLOSS should have to be voted in a council but here we have it again. IT departments should just announce smaller budgetary requests and make it happen. Bern, like many jurisdictions in Europe will have Free Software sooner or later.

Object Oriented State Machine Operating System Goes Open Source

Filed under
OS
OSS

On a desktop computer, you think of an operating system as a big piece of complex software. For small systems (like an Arduino) you might want something a lot simpler. Object Oriented State Machine Operating System (OOSMOS) is a single-file and highly portable operating system, and it recently went open source.

OOSMOS has a unique approach because it is threadless, which makes it easy to use in memory constrained systems because there is no stack required for threads that don’t exist. The unit of execution is a C++ object (although you can use C) that contains a state machine.

Twisource: A lightweight, open source social media solution

Filed under
OSS

A community is bound by groupware used by its members. For open source projects, the list of collaboration tools may include wikis, distributed version control systems, bug trackers, IRC, forums, and such. The decision to use a specific tool may play an important role as it will define how strongly community members will be involved in the project. Tools that have no support for collaboration or are too complex to use may seriously limit and impede help provided by the community.

'Community First' Drives Open Source Success

Filed under
OSS

Focus on community and technology will follow. That's a fundamental principle for successful open source projects, according to the Apache Software Foundation's Jim Jagleski, a self-described and self-evident "graybeard" of open source communities.

Apache is one of the great open source success stories. First released 20 years ago, Apache serves 56% of websites worldwide. Jagleski serves on the board of the Apache Software Foundation, which incorporated in 1999, and is its most senior still active contributor.

AMD Tonga & Fiji Open-Source Performance Boosted By PowerPlay Patches

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Linux
OSS

Yesterday AMD finally posted power management support for the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver when it comes to supported discrete graphics cards like Tonga and Fiji. I've been testing these PowerPlay Linux patches since yesterday to great success. In this article are results from a Radeon R9 285 and Radeon R9 Fury when testing these kernel patches along with the latest Mesa 11.1-devel Git drivers.

These AMDGPU PowerPlay patches are working out well so far in my tests. See the two aforementioned articles for more details on this AMDGPU power management code that lands more than 45000 lines of new code into this Direct Rendering Manager driver for the latest AMD graphics processors. It's just a pity that the code is too late for making it into the Linux 4.4 kernel merge window and thus won't be mainlined for a few months until the Linux 4.5 kernel. Up to now, the newer AMD graphics cards on the open-source AMD Linux driver have been limited to whatever (low) frequencies the core and memory clocks are initialized to at boot time. With PowerPlay, they can finally (and dynamically) ramp up when to their rated specifications.

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2. We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more

Calamares Release and Adoption

  • Calamares 3.0 Universal Linux Installer Released, Drops Support for KPMcore 2
    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0. Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
