Abatron is a beautiful-looking game full of interesting ideas, which still needs to go a long way before seeing the final release (the official date so far is August 2nd 2017), though there is already a demo version for Windows. Since Linux support is briefly mentioned in the Early Access section of the Steam Store (check the third question: How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version? ), I asked the developers for more information.
The day has arrived space fans! Master of Orion (the new one) has blasted off out of Early Access and is now officially available.
I played a while of it a few months back in both single-player and online versus Samsai and it was a blast. It's had a ton of content and polish additions since I last played, but even months ago it was really fun.
They have plans for post-released updates as mentioned here, so leaving Early Access is not the end for development.
Most Phoronix readers know PC-BSD as the BSD operating system derived from FreeBSD that aims to be user-friendly on the desktop side and they've done a fairly good job at that over the years. However, the OS has been in the process of re-branding itself as TrueOS.
PC-BSD has been offering "TrueOS Server" for a while now as their FreeBSD-based server offering. But around the upcoming FreeBSD 11.0 release they are looking to re-brand their primary desktop download too now as TrueOS.
The second release candidate to the upcoming FreeBSD 11 is now available for testing.
FreeBSD 11.0-RC2 ships with various bug fixes, several networking related changes, Clang compiler fixes, and other updates.
FreeBSD 11.0 is bringing updated KMS drivers, Linux binary compatibility layer improvements, UEFI improvements, Bhyve virtualization improvements, and a plethora of other work. Those not yet familiar with FreeBSD 11 can see the what's new guide.
