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

Well it was a news-filled week last week, what with Google I/O going on, and the buzz about all the announcements made there still hasn't died down. Tongues have been wagging here in the Linux blogosphere as well, but one little tidbit has drawn particular attention. That's the Android-powered Nexus 7, specifically, the prospect of which has more than a few geeks drooling with abandon.

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

Google has released its grip on the development of the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and moved it under the control of a steering committee comprising developers from Google, Sencha, Red Hat, ArcBees, Vaadin, mgwt and other GWT advocates such as Thomas Broyer, Christian Goudreau and Daniel Kurka. First released as open source in 2006 and controlled by Google, GWT will now be under the control of a committee which will set out a direction for future GWT development, approve new committers, review code, administer releases, adjust the GWT development processes and work as master committers on the GWT project.

Subject: Ultimate Edition 3.4 has been released with ultimate Features

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

Ultimate Edition 3.4, now based on Ubuntu 12.04 and featuring the GNOME 3 desktop, has been released: "Ultimate Edition 3.4 was built off Ubuntu 12.04 'Precise Pangolin'. All updates fully applied, old kernels purged, new initrd and vmlinuz rebuilt. Ultimate Edition 3.4 is what 2.6 series was - a stable environment. GNOME, the default environment is rock solid. Ultimate Edition 3.4 has a new GTK+ 3 theme and a comprehensive set of software packages. I have really placed thought and diligence into what this product is. Ultimate Edition 3.4 takes things to a whole new level. It was developed with stability in mind, sorry KDE users, we will catch you in Ultimate Edition 3.5. This OS will be my primary OS for some time to come. That statement alone says a lot for my feeling on this operating system."

FFMPEG is a tool for handling and editing multimedia stuffs. It supports all the popular media formats and has a lot of cool options and features. You probably have ffmpeg installed already in your machine if you are using some video or audio editing tool. But if you dont, you can install ffmpeg easily by installing libav-tools

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

In addition to critiquing the implementation methods pursued by the Linux distributors, the FSF also commented broadly on the general premise of secure boot. Although the organization likes the concept in theory, it finds that the model pursued by the hardware manufacturers will raise serious problems in practice.
