Subject: This week at LWN: XBMC 11 "Eden"

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

XBMC, the open source media center, has steadily grown from its humble origins as an X-Box only replacement environment into the cross-platform, de facto playback front-end for multimedia content. It merges the file-centric approach taken by traditional video players with an add-on scripting environment that handles remote web content. The project is currently finalizing its next major release, version 11.0 (codenamed Eden), which includes updates to the networking and video acceleration subsystems, broader hardware support, and numerous changes to the APIs available to add-on developers.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Cisco has appealed to the European Union's General Court, asking for the European Commission's approval of Microsoft's takeover of Skype to be made conditional. The network infrastructure company wants the EC to ensure "standards-based interoperability in the video calling space."

Subject: Netrunner 4.1 Screenshot Tour

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Accompanying the release of Netrunner 64-bit edition, we today release version 4.1 for 32-bit systems with the following changes compared to 4.0: switched to hybrid ISO images; Linux kernel 3.0, KDE 4.7.4 (latest stable); Muon 1.2.95; kde-gtk-config module for easy GTK+ 2/3 configuration under KDE; several bug fixes, including system freezes during automatic update. Since 4.0 had a critical bug related to the automatic package updating, we suggest that users of 4.0 manually upgrade to 4.1.

Subject: Cinnamon: A New Delicious Flavour For Linux Users To Enjoy

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Gnome 3 has failed to win users over. Unity was so unpopular it wiped out Ubuntu’s lead on Distrowatch and made Linux Mint number one. With the dominant desktop (Gnome) and the dominant distribution (Ubuntu) both failing to set users’ hearts racing we’re reminded once again why we love using Linux – there’s so much choice.

Subject: C development on Linux - Basic I/O - VIII.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With this part of our C development on Linux article we are getting ready to get out of the theoretical zone and enter the real life one. If you followed the series until this point and tried to solve all the exercises, you will now have some idea about what C is about, so you need to get out in the wild and so some practical stuff, without which theory doesn't have much value. Some of the concepts you'll see below are already known, but they are extremely important for any C program on any Unix-like OS. Yes, the information is valid regardless of the OS, as long as it's some kind of Unix, but if you'll stumble onto something Linux-specific, you will know. We will treat concepts like standard input, output and error, in-depth printf() and file access, among others. Are you ready?

Subject: SCO and IBM Stipulate on Going Forward with Utah Litigation -- It's Game On

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

SCO and IBM have reached a stipulation [PDF] on how to go forward on reactivating the Utah litigation, and SCO has filed it in Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. Assuming it's signed by the judge, the Hon. Kevin Gross, in time for the April 23rd hearing now scheduled in Utah District Court in Salt Lake City before the Hon. Dee Benson on SCO's laughable motion to let only *it* go ahead and IBM not, I'd say it's game on. They've agreed IBM can proceed with its defenses and counterclaims. It was IBM that suggested in its opposition to SCO's motion that the best way forward was to ask the Bankruptcy Court to lift the stay on *both* parties, which is what the stipulation agrees to.
