Gentoo-Based Chrome OS for Work, Gentoo Sources Change

  • Introducing Chrome Enterprise
    Since we launched Chrome OS in 2009, our goal has been to build the simplest, fastest, and most secure operating system possible. And we’ve been inspired by all the ways we’ve seen businesses embrace Chrome, from Chromebooks in the office, to shared Chrome devices in the field, to signage and kiosks for customer engagement in retail. But with so many different business needs—not to mention so many different devices—companies have also told us they want a single, cost-effective solution that gives them the flexibility and control to keep their employees connected. That’s why today we’re announcing Chrome Enterprise.
  • Google Rolls Out Chrome Enterprise: Chrome OS For Work
    Google has today announced Chrome Enterprise as a subscription service to take Chrome OS and Chromebooks into more work environments. Chrome Enterprise makes Chrome OS more friendly for professional work environments and lets IT/administrators manage Chrome extensions, printers, handle operating system updates, and provides other features like single sign-on support and more. Chrome Enterprise costs $50 USD per device per year and includes 24/7 enterprise support.
  • Switch to Gentoo sources
    You've might already read it on the Gentoo news site, the Hardened Linux kernel sources are removed from the tree due to the grsecurity change where the grsecurity Linux kernel patches are no longer provided for free. The decision was made due to supportability and maintainability reasons. That doesn't mean that users who want to stick with the grsecurity related hardening features are left alone. Agostino Sarubbo has started providing sys-kernel/grsecurity-sources for the users who want to stick with it, as it is based on minipli's unofficial patchset. I seriously hope that the patchset will continue to be maintained and, who knows, even evolve further. Personally though, I'm switching to the Gentoo sources, and stick with SELinux as one of the protection measures. And with that, I might even start using my NVidia graphics card a bit more, as that one hasn't been touched in several years (I have an Optimus-capable setup with both an Intel integrated graphics card and an NVidia one, but all attempts to use nouveau for the one game I like to play - minecraft - didn't work out that well).

Programming: Java EE, Developer Skills, modulemd, QtWebKit, GnuTLS, React.js Licence

  • Opening Up Java EE
    We continue to make great progress on Java EE 8. Specifications are nearly complete, and we expect to deliver the reference implementation this summer. As we approach the delivery of Java EE 8 and the JavaOne 2017 conference, we believe there is an opportunity to rethink how Java EE is developed in order to make it more agile and responsive to changing industry and technology demands.
  • Trending Developer Skills, Based on my Analysis of “Ask HN: Who’s Hiring?”
    For people learning to code and for experienced software developers alike, change is constant. There is always something new to learn. This includes programming languages, web frameworks, DevOps automation, mobile devices, front-end and back-end development, SQL and NoSQL databases, and so on.
  • modulemd 1.3.0
    I almost forgot! Last week I released modulemd-1.3.0, the module metadata format specification and its reference Python implementation. This release defines just three new fields but all of them are pretty important.
  • QtWebKit on FreeBSD
    Over at lwn.net, there is an article on the coming WebKitGTK apocalypse. Michael Catanzaro has pointed out the effects of WebKit’s stalled development processes before, in 2016. So here’s the state of WebKit on FreeBSD, from the KDE-FreeBSD perspective (and a little bit about the GTK ports, too).
  • GnuTLS 3.6.0 released
    We are proud to announce a new GnuTLS release: Version 3.6.0. GnuTLS is a modern C library that implements the standard network security protocol Transport Layer Security (TLS), for use by network applications. GnuTLS is developed for GNU/Linux, but works on many Unix-like systems as well as Windows. The GnuTLS library is distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License version 2 (or later).
  • Apache Foundation and Facebook in Standoff Over React.js License
    Here's a story that has the two things that open source advocates like to fight about discuss most: licenses and software patents. It started on July 15 when the Apache Foundation's legal affairs director, Chris Mattmann, made a comment to a thread on a discussion board that began two months discussing a little quirk that had been found in the wording of Facebook's open source BSD-plus-Patents license.
