It's Been A Quiet Year-End For BUS1, The Proposed In-Kernel IPC For Linux

With the Linux 4.10 kernel merge window expected to open this weekend, I was digging around to see whether there was anything new on the BUS1 front and whether we might see it for the next kernel cycle. While I have yet to see any official communication from the BUS1 developers, it doesn't look like it's happening for BUS1. In fact, it's been a rather quiet past few weeks for these developers working on this in-kernel IPC mechanism to succeed the never-merged KDBUS.

  • 10 years of dgplug summer training
    In 2017 dgplug summer training will be happening for the 10th time. Let me tell you honestly, I had no clue that we will reach here when I started this back in 2008. The community gathered together, and we somehow managed to continue. In case, you do not know about this training, dgplug summer training is a 3 months long online IRC based course where we help people to become contributors to upstream projects. The sessions start around 6:30PM IST, and continues till 9PM (or sometimes till very late at night) for 3 months. You can read the logs of the sessions here.
  • 6 3D printing applications you can install on Fedora 25
    Do you have an interest in the 3D printing space but don’t know which 3D printing application will work on your favorite Linux distribution? You’re in luck, because in this article, you learn about 6 of such applications that you can install on Fedora 25 and other Linux distributions, like Ubuntu 16.10 and debian 8. Most of these you can install by selecting the 3D printing package when using the DVD or netinstall ISO image to install Fedora 25, but the rest you have to install individually.
  • FUDCon APAC Phnom Penh 2016
    FUDCon 2016, that was for me first of all a lot of work especially after the change of the venue in nearly last minute. Instead of ITC BarCamp happened this year at Norton University, what turned out not to be a good choice. A new hotel had to be found, not an easy task as on this side of the river are not many yet.
