It's all a bit weird and mysterious. At present, we don't really know what has changed within Windows 10. But the change happened almost overnight, with the government throwing money at developing Kyrin and NeoKyrin, versions of Linux designed for the Chinese market and to lure departments away from Windows reliance.
The other issue is that Microsoft may have not only had to satisfy Chinese authorities that Windows 10 wasn't spying on them via the NSA, but also may have had to add surveillance software favourable to China.
Embracing cloud native applications means changing how we think about, develop, and deploy applications. This shift is not just technological. It impacts the structure of organizations, as teams align to common business outcomes.
Have you heard about software in cars that run on embedded devices? Do you think that creating such software might be challenging? Well, welcome to a complete new world of complexity, welcome to the world of agriculture machines! For many years, automatic steering (on fields), terminals to control the complex mechanical operations of a self-driving 16 ton combine harvester on a soft ground, and self-optimization systems to optimize any tiny bit of your harvester, are key demands from customers. I, myself, am working at CLAAS E-Systems, the electronics and software department within the CLAAS group. Our group is well known for being among the leading manufacturers for combine harvesters, tractors and forage harvesters.
With Qt 5.8's Qt Wayland Compositor Framework taking shape, more developers are beginning to tailor a Qt Wayland compositor to their use-cases. One of those is a company specializing in farm equipment like combine harvesters, tractors, and harvesters.
As a guest post on the official Qt blog, developer Andreas Cord-Landwehr of CLAAS E-Systems talked up Qt Wayland for their purposes in the highly-regulated agriculture industry.
The development team behind the popular, open-source, cross-platform, free and powerful KDevelop IDE (Integrated Development Environment) were proud to announce the official release and general availability of KDevelop 5.1.
KDevelop 5.1 is now the most advanced stable version of the application, which is written entirely in Qt and designed to be used on various GNU/Linux distributions that usually ship with the KDE Plasma desktop environment, but also on the latest releases of the Microsoft Windows operating system.
