  • Weave introduces ‘Gossip’ DNS service discovery for containers

    WeaveDNS is a service discovery solution for containers on Weave (network), a a networking solution for Docker containers from Weaveworks.

    WeaveDNS was introduced in version 0.9 of Weave, but in Weave 1.1, it was redesigned and nicknamed Gossip DNS. With Gossip DNS, container “registrations are broadcast to all weaveDNS instances, which subsequently hold all entries in memory and handle lookups locally.” That has led to performance and latency gains and a few other benefits.

    The activity overview is, probably, the most revolutionary feature introduced with the birth of Gnome Shell.

  • DevOps: An Introduction

    Not too long ago, software development was done a little differently. We programmers would each have our own computer, and we would write code that did the usual things a program should do, such as read and write files, respond to user events, save data to a database, and so on. Most of the code ran on a single computer, except for the database server, which was usually a separate computer. To interact with the database, our code would specify the name or address of the database server along with credentials and other information, and we would call into a library that would do the hard work of communicating with the server. So, from the perspective of the code, everything took place locally. We would call a function to get data from a table, and the function would return with the data we asked for. Yes, there were plenty of exceptions, but for many application-based desktop applications, this was the general picture.

  • The Comparison and Context of Unikernels and Containers

    Talk about unikernels is starting to gain momentum. Still, these are such early days for this technology that implements the bare minimum of the traditional operating system functions. Its functionality is a topic we discussed last month in a post by Russell Pavlicek of Citrix. As Pavlicek wrote, unikernels implement the bare minimum of the traditional operating system functions — just enough to enable the application it powers.

  • FISH – A smart and user-friendly command line shell for Linux
  • This is what we do if someone offers us some constructive criticism

    We in KDE don’t ignore constructive feedback, so at Akademy, we set out to find solutions to the issues he pointed out. In order to maximize the reach of our efforts’ documentation, I decided to write a two-part series about it over at Linux Veda, a “web-magazine to share and spread knowledge about Linux and Open Source technologies” which has always been very interested in – and generally supportive of – KDE.

  • How to Make Unbreakable Passwords In Your Head Using Mental Cryptography

    You're supposed to have distinct passwords for every one of your different accounts, and, what's more, those passwords are supposed to be difficult. Use some numbers and symbols and weird capitalization, they tell us. But it's hard, and so we wind up just using the same password for everything and taking the risk.

Linux 4.7 and Linux 4.8

  • Linux Kernel 4.7 Officially Released, Introduces Support for Radeon RX480 GPUs
    Today, July 24, 2016, after a week of holiday fun, Linus Torvalds has had the great pleasure of announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.7 for all GNU/Linux operating systems. The Linux 4.7 kernel has been in development for the past two months, but that shouldn't surprise anyone who is either reading our website on a regular basis or keeping pace with the Linux kernel development cycle, which was very normal for this branch. A total of seven Release Candidate (RC) testing builds were released since May 29, 2016, which introduced numerous new features and improvements.

  • The Size Of Different DRM Graphics Drivers In Linux 4.7
    Last October I looked at The Size Of The Different Open-Source Linux DRM/Mesa Graphics Drivers, but with it being nearly one year since then and Linux 4.7 due out today, I decided to run some fresh L.O.C. measurements on the popular DRM/KMS drivers to see their current sizes. This lines-of-code counting was mostly done out of a curiosity factor. In this article I'm just looking at the in-kernel DRM code and not the Mesa drivers, DDX drivers, LLVM back-ends, or anything else in user-space related to the open-source graphics drivers.

This hardened usercopy is to be exposed as the CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY option within the kernel.
