PolarFire SoC board has GbE port and 40-pin GPIO

Sundance will soon launch an SBC-like, $995 “PolarBerry” module that runs Linux on Microchip’s FPGA-enabled, RISC-V based PolarFire SoC with 4GB DDR4 and eMMC, dual CAN, a GbE port, and RPi style 40-pin GPIO. Microchip’s PolarFire SoC, the world’s first SoC to combine a Linux-ready RISC-V architecture CPU with an FPGA, has so far appeared on an Aries M100PFS module and Microchip’s own PolarFire SoC Icicle Kit SBC. Now, UK-based FPGA manufacturer Sundance has announced a Raspberry Pi sized PolarBerry SoM equipped with the hybrid SoC. It will soon launch on Crowd Supply for $995, with shipments due in January.

Enable a Magic Lamp Effect on Ubuntu with this GNOME Extension

Called “Compiz-alike magic lamp effect”, this a free, open source GNOME Shell extension does an excellent job of recreating this famously flashy window minimisation effect on the Ubuntu desktop (as well as other Linux distros which use GNOME Shell). The “genie effect” animation is synonymous with Mac computers as it was the default window minimisation effect used during the early years of the system. Notably, the effect was first shown off during an Apple keynote way back in 2000 — it’s been around that long! Linux users wanting to add the animation to their systems have had several ways to do it over the years. The best known effect is the ‘Magic Lamp’ effect for Compiz, the 3D composited window manager, though (naturally) elementary OS provides it too. Read more

Ubuntu publisher, Samsung, Huawei join major open-source security initiative

Security has always been of utmost importance to the entire open source ecosystem. Eric S. Raymond, one of the luminaries of the open source movement, in his famous essay, Cathedral and the Bazaar, wrote “given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.” While still true, the complexity of software, and the increasing number of collaborators, puts an increasing onus on the eyeballs hunting for vulnerabilities. In addition to well-defined security policies at a project level, virtually all of the top organisations that contribute to open source software have security initiatives of their own. Read more
