Subject: Salix MATE 13.37 Released

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

Salix MATE 13.37 is now officially released! Available in both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, this release introduces the MATE Desktop Environment. For anyone not familiar with MATE, it's a GNOME2 fork, that continues development of the GNOME 2.x branch. MATE uses the traditional desktop metaphor that was abandoned for newer GNOME 3.x releases. All of the GNOME parts that have been forked have been renamed, so that they don't conflict with GNOME 3.x applications, but otherwise the functionality and behavior is exactly the same as it was in GNOME 2.32.x.

Subject: Virtual Users & Domains With Postfix/Courier/MySQL/SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.04)

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

This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier, so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface.

Mozilla and Google are crying foul over Microsoft restrictions blocking rivals from Windows 8 on ARM, due later this year. Firefox-shop Mozilla has branded Microsoft's restrictions a return to the digital dark ages "where users and developers didn't have browser choices".

Subject: Ubuntu 12.10 To Get Wayland As A Tech Preview

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

Ubuntu 12.04 may get Wayland implemented as a system compositor making overall boot experience more smooth. More specifically, a Wayland demo-compositor plus a LightDM greeter wayland backend can be used to start user's X sessions in Ubuntu 12.10. Users who prefer open source Intel, ATI and Nvidia drivers will be able to take benefit from this. This system compositor will be able to support hybrid graphics and graphics switching, but work on this will be done after Ubuntu 12.10.

Subject: There's a new Icedove (aka Thunderbird) in the Debian Mozilla APT Archive

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

Icedove's recent history in the Debian Mozilla APT archive has been spotty. You can rely on the archive for either the latest stable Iceweasel (aka Firefox) or a development version. But Icedove has been in and out. However, as of today (OK ... as of March 31 through April 4, 2012, to be exact) Icedove, iceowl-extension, calendar-google-provider and calendar-timezones are all at 10.0.3.

Subject: Goodbye, CouchDB

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

Here at Sauce Labs, we recently celebrated the completion of a significant project to improve our service uptime and reliability, as we transitioned the last of our CouchDB databases to MySQL. We’d outgrown CouchDB, to the point that a majority of our unplanned downtime was due to CouchDB issues, so wrapping up this migration was an important milestone for us.

Subject: To GNU or Not to GNU? That Is the Question

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

There's no denying the incendiary nature of the topic of desktop Linux, which tends to gets rehashed in heated detail every so often both on these pages and beyond. What some may not remember, however, is that there's another recurring Linux subject that can be equally controversial. It hasn't appeared in some time, but apparently some slow fires have been burning all along, because they just flared up anew.

Subject: 5 Handy Travel Apps for Android

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

The way we travel has evolved a lot over the years. In the early days, people used to walk around with giant folded maps, asking for directions to random strangers. Not that anything is wrong with that, it was just that those methods weren't as great as the ones we have now. For example, not only is using GPS devices more convenient than carrying maps and guides, it’s also much more time saving. These days, all the things you need for your journey are packed neatly into your tiny smartphone, thus fitting a whole bag full of accessories right in your pocket. Furthermore, there are a variety of applications that help us take care of the smallest of hassles we encounter in our voyage. Today, we’ll take a look at five handy apps that makes an Android smartphone or tablet a perfect companion for travelers.

My jet lag is gone, I've finally come back to ground, and at last I can start to sort out my experiences at the 10th annual Linux Audio Conference, held this year at CCRMA, the Center For Computer Research In Music And Acoustics at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California USA. It was the first time the event had been held in the States, and the organizers obviously intended to make a good impression. I'll cut to the spoiler right now to let you know that they succeeded, with honors.
