[Network Functions Virtualisation=NFV]
Network operators have a jealous eye on the likes of Facebook and Google and want to ditch their clunky networks to compete for "cooler" consumer services, the head of the open-source network function virtualisation (NFV) project has said.
Heather Kirksey is director of the collaborative Linux foundation's OPNFV project – the open source software platform intended to promote the uptake of new products and services using Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV).
Just a week after Nokia (NYSE:NOK) announced an agreement to help China Mobile move to a more flexible cloud network infrastructure, Nokia said it is teaming up with Intel to make its carrier-grade AirFrame Data Center Solution hardware available for an Open Platform Network Functions Virtualization (OPNFV) Lab.
The open source multi-VIM MANO, Cloudify, is giving a sneak preview of its Telecom Edition today at the OPNFV Summit in Berlin. Cloudify is an open source orchestrator used by a growing group of large telecoms and Tier 1 network operators that are pursuing network functions virtualization (NFV).
GNOME Online Accounts 3.21.3 is now available for public testing
IT WAS ONE HELL of a Monday morning. The rain was hammering down with no end in sight, and the usual 'wrong type of rain' and 'leaves on the line' meant that trains from outlying areas into central London were all pretty much stationary.
When I finally got to the office, I dashed to my desk, powered up my system and launched Microsoft Edge - the window to my Office 365-using world.
I was met with a big, blank white window that wouldn't shift, no matter how often I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
It was the final straw after a year of repeated crashes, hangs, random tab locks followed by forced refreshes, and general slow motion performance that's made anguished cries and keyboard thumps a normal occurrence for those around me.
So after using Edge religiously since Windows 10's launch as an attempt to ‘embed' with the tech I write about, I decided this morning to stop using it entirely.
The browser-maker Opera has negated Microsoft’s much-publicised claim that its Windows 10-exclusive Edge browser provides significantly less battery drain than competitors Chrome and Opera – and its own tests put Edge firmly in second place for battery efficiency.
In a post at the Opera blog today, Błażej Kaźmierczak reveals the result of the company’s own tests, which put Google Chrome in third place at two hours and fifty-four minutes, Edge in second at three hours twelve minutes, and Opera ahead of that by obtaining three hours and fifty-five minutes of battery life under identical tests.
tecmint: PHP Shell or Shell PHP is a program or script written in PHP (Php Hypertext Preprocessor) which provides Linux Terminal (Shell is a much broader concept) in Browser.
I just updated to Fedora 24 today, just a day after it’s release. Two dnf commands and 30 minutes later, my system is now upgraded to Fedora 24.
This is as bollocky as bollocks go. Korora 23 Gnome actually booted FINE on my G50 machine just the other day. No problem, no sweat. Well, it wouldn't boot from USB, but DVD was fine. Not so with the KDE version. Consistency is such a troubled word. I tried a couple of coasters, even tried a different DVD tray, and then booted the Gnome edition to make sure there's nothing wrong with the hardware. And there isn't.
I can't describe how frustrated I am. It's the same bloody distro with just a few small changes in the visual layout. But then, Fedora boots fine, after a firmware update. Korora Gnome boots fine, but only from DVD. Korora KDE boots not. I am embarrassed to tell people I'm a Linux user. How can this be? We're in 2016. This isn't 1999 anymore. We're not fighting code demons anymore. Seriously, I'm considering starting a petition that says there should be prison time for badly executed and poorly QA-ed distros. The problem is no one cares about petitions.
Among issues with Ion is its incorrect use of the DMA APIs. I've briefly mentioned this before. My educated opinion is that it's a complete mess and that time travel would be a great solution to fix this this problem.
Oomox supports GTK3 and GTK2, and it includes Openbox and Xfwm4 themes. Unity is also supported, though changing the window buttons color is not yet supported.
We reported the other day that the GNOME developers released the third snapshot towards the upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment, meaning that many of the core components and apps were improved.
Tracker, the open-source semantic data store software, which is responsible for indexing different sources needed for the search engine integration of the GNOME desktop environment, implemented via GNOME Shell and other apps from the GNOME Stack, has been updated to version 1.9.0.
I had the privilege of sitting in on the GTK+ hackfest in Toronto last week, getting re-energized for my day job by hanging out with developers from Canonical, Collabora, Endless and Red Hat. Toronto is a fabulous city for a hackfest, and Red Hat provided a great workspace.
A dozen GNOME hackers invaded the Red Hat office in Toronto last week, to spend four days planning the next year of work on our favourite toolkit, GTK+; and to think about how Flatpak applications can best integrate with the rest of the desktop.
The week-view already had good amount of code written for it. So the basic files were already existing.
Excel being Excel there are, of course, special cases. “=” does not mean to look for empty strings. Instead it means to look for blank cells. And strings that can be parsed as numbers, dates, booleans, or whatever are equivalent to searching for such values. These are all just examples of run-of-the-mill Excel weirdness.
The thing that really makes me suspect that Excel designers were under the influence of potent psycho-active substances is that, for no good reason, pattern matching criteria like “foo*bar” mean something different for the two flavours of functions. For the “D” functions it means /^foo.*bar/ in grep terms, whereas for the “if” functions it means /^foo.*bar$/. Was that really necessary?
We reported last week on the release of the Beta build of the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.7 desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems, and we're now looking forward to the final release, due on July 5, 2016.
In the meantime, KDE developer Martin Gräßlin talks in his latest blog post about the improvements that have been added so far in order to bring better support to the next-generation Wayland display server on the forthcoming KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment.
Last Sunday the full week of Randa Meetings 2016 had passed, and it was time to find a route home, e.g. using KDE’s currently developed Marble Maps (here in the SailfishOS variant)...
Last week in Randa we did not only work on a new Windows version of Marble, but made a lot of progress on vector tile rendering as well. Here is a quick visual impression of the first lower level vector tiles that are now part of the Vector OSM map theme. Much of the work was done by Akshat, one of our GSoC students.
Currently you can see all named and static unnamed stars (also there will be support for Tycho-2 catalog available as an add-on). Having a node for each of the star results in increased memory consumption but I have an idea which I will implement during optimization phase (maintain all nodes in LRU cache and delete nodes that don't get a lot of user attention).
It is strange to talk about improvements when the product does not yet exist, but there are a few important ideas that deviate from original KRunner that I’ve been working on.
My project this summer started with implementing keyframing for masks and layer opacity. Currently I am doing the same for transformation masks, but in between I worked on the problem of interpolation.
In other news, last Monday was my final bachelor thesis presentation which was the last thing I had to do for school this year. I managed to graduate with a 9/10 for the whole thesis process and my supervisors were allegedly very happy with me. Now I cross over the threshold of the academic life to the working life of which the first three months will be reserved for Krita.
We launched up Krita expecting a complete disaster, but what it blessed us with was a small green square sitting tranquilly on top of the canvas. What does it mean?
First, I want to thank Tomaz Canabrava, that brings me to KDE Community and gives me the opportunity to make this changes in my life, to get me rid out my comfort zone and show me the world.
A new major update has been released for the OSMC open-source media center GNU/Linux distribution, bringing all the updates from the upstream Debian Stable software repositories.
The APT 1.3 development continues at a fast pace, and it looks like it has just received yet another snapshot, apt 1.3~exp3, the third one in the series, which brings more goodies to the upcoming major release of the Debian GNU/Linux package manager.
