  • Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit - Austin, Texas - April 8th to 10th, 2008 -

    Unlike a lot of the events that I discuss in my Blog, the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is a "by invitation only" event with a twist. Normally for "invitation only events", the potential attendee sits by the phone with their prom clothes on, waiting for the call that may or may not come. more>>

Apesar de trabalhar com programas de código aberto desde 2001, fazia muito pouco [...]
  • CANDIDATO dos TUCANOS DEFENDEU TRABALHO INFANTIL. JUSTIÇA COMPROVA - Jonas Donizete, desesperado, despreparado, orientado pelos mesmos marketeiros de Alckmin e Serra, tentou nos programas de TV dizer que nunca tinha apresentado nenhum projeto favorável ao trabalho infantil. Como não conseguiu impedir o acesso ao projeto de lei 9236/1997, de sua autoria, no site Câmara de Vereadores, solicitou à Jutiça Eleitoral o bloqueio das denuncias, [...]

    It is designed for GNUstep and completely native on the Mac too, with version 0.5 being available as a binary for both for PPC and Intel, as well, of course, as the usual source tarball for Unix.

    There are some new features as well as bug fixes:
    • Creation of local and remote directories
    • Command to refresh the current directory listing, local and remote

  • A brief history of the arm64 port - Steve McIntyre walks us through a brief history of the Debian ARM port.
  • The newsletter for the Debian community - Now an official release architecture for Jessie, arm64 took many years and a lot of CPU time considering the over 21,000 source packages available. From the inception of the port, developers struggled for accessible hardware and were only able to work on it using ARM's AArch64 software models, until the folks running the Tianhe-2 supercomputer project in China contacted the team to offer access to their arm64 hardware.
  • First release candidate of Jessie Debian Installer - The Debian Installer Jessie RC1 release has been announced. Changes include checks for missing firmware, the official artwork for Jessie, the renaming of 486 to 586, and an updated mirror listing. Other items of note are language support for 75 languages, a PXE-bootable grub.efi, imx6 support and netcfg interface.d support. The Debian Installer team extends a Thank You to all the people who contributed towards this release. The team also extends a call for help for testers to help find bugs in all media available.
