È stata rilasciata la versione 2.7 del popolarissimo Wordpress, il “motore” di pollycoke :)

Al contrario della precedente 2.6 (che mi ha abbastanza deluso) questa nuova versione sembrerebbe un vero salto in avanti per quanto riguarda ergonomia e funzionalità, entrambe ai massimi livelli! Complimenti al team.

Wordpress version 2.7 has been released and available for download. Download the latest release of WordPress version 2.7, released on 10 December 2008.

 

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): i took my curtain call

Il primo attesissimo videocast di Aaron Seigo su KDE.

Una noia mortale ._.

Despite the horrible audio clipping at the start and occasional clipping throughout (it decided to not see my USB mic for some reason today and nothing i did could convince it otherwise), the “hey, it’s my living room!” recording lair and it being the first hour long show I’ve done (”Dammit, look into the camera!!!”) … show one is in the can. We peaked at 225 viewers during the live recording, and we’ll see how many people watch it over the coming week.

You can watch it (and future episodes) here on my “Seigo on KDE” channel; you need to scroll down to the Video Clips section to watch the recorded show. The show notes that accompany the show are here and include links to the screenshots and other files referenced.

Apologies in advance for all the non-free software .. If there was a good, live-streaming site with a decent interface I’d hop to it in a heartbeat. Maximizing impact while minimizing the impact on my time is critical.

Where are all the FOSS web dev projects? identi.ca is a nice start and Slashdot is the long time standard bearer, but we just don’t see many online services that use FOSS frameworks …

Update: There is now a torrent of the show available, thanks to Serenity on irc.

 

Adobe Releases 64-bit Flash For Linux

Adobe ha rilasciato una prima versione 64-bit di Flash per Linux.

Questa era una delle mosse più attese, anticipate e sperate da parte di Adobe. Si vede che la concorrenza fa bene… ;)

Since acquiring Macromedia, Adobe has improved its Flash Player for Linux quite a bit in recent times with the Linux version of Flash being updated in sync with the Windows and Mac OS X versions. For instance, development of Flash Player 10 led to several public alpha and beta releases that brought a number of new features to this platform…

 

Matthew Garrett: Ultamatix

Automatix o Ultamatix, sempre di spazzatura si tratta

Condivido appieno. Ultamatix (ex Automatix) è una schifezza in grado di sminchiare la vostra Ubuntu e renderla inservibile nel peggiore dei casi, procurarvi dei gran malditesta al prezzo di qualche stupido automatismo se vi va bene.

Come ho sempre detto: alla larga!

First, let me make one thing clear. This isn’t constructive criticism. This is just criticism. It’s directed at software that’s so wrong-headed that there’s no way to make it significantly better, and everyone involved would be much better spending their time doing something else instead of trying to fix any of what I’m about to describe. It’s not worth it. Sit in a park or something instead. Meet new and interesting people. Take up a hobby that doesn’t involve writing shell scripts for Linux. You’ll be happier. I’ll be happier. Everyone wins.

 

I’m anti-Brasero

C’è anche chi odia Brasero (non io!)

Brasero è un’applicazione per masterizzare supporti ottici, strettamente connessa a GNOME. Talmente connessa che entrerà nel modulo Desktop ufficiale!

Questa è un’ottima notizia per tutti gli amanti di Brasero (me compreso) ma qualcuno preferirebbe che le funzioni di masterizzazione fossero disponibili a tutte le applicazioni del desktop. Il dibattito è acceso, personalmente preferisco una via di mezzo che poi è simile alla situazione attuale: Brasero come app ma funzionalità di base disponibili via Nautilus

November 3, 2008 at 12:35 am (GNOME, Linux) Tags: brasero, cd burning, GNOME, Linux Well, not so much anti Brasero as pro doing things right really. Having a separate burining application is a horrible idea that stems back to the days when computers came without cd burners. It became an add on item for which support was needed, as use cases grew so did the horrible apps – now looking at Nero one of the apparent favourites it has grown from a simple little app that did the wr

 

Alberto Milone: Call for testing: NVIDIA drivers and nvidia-settings in Intrepid

Appello per aiutare a testare NVIDIA driver e NVIDIA Settings

Lo ha lanciato Alberto “tseliot” Milone, invitando a provare le sue modifiche ai pacchetti ufficiali di Ubuntu. Nella pagina originale trovate le istruzioni per impostare i repository e i link in cui riportare successi o insuccessi. Speriamo che i primi abbondino e un saluto ad Alberto per il suo sempre apprezzato lavoro!

As promised, NVIDIA drivers 71.86.07 and 96.43.09 are now available for testing in Intrepid’s proposed repositories. If you don’t know how to use these repositories you can read the instructions.

Please give feedback here (say something like “driver 96 works for me”, etc.).

There is also a small fix which will solve a problem with diversions for drivers 177 and 173.
Please give feedback here

I have also fixed a bug in nvidia-settings (i.e. NVIDIA’s control panel) which made it segfault when no ServerLayout section is available in the xorg.conf.

Please test the package and give feedback here.

The sooner you test these packages, the sooner they will enter Intrepid’s stable repositories.
