It's been a couple of years since VP9 was released and VP10 will come out this year. Why is it that there is still no HW-Acceleration for VP9? Is this a Linux only thing? (Can't tell as I haven't used Windows in years)
From a desktop standpoint this isn't much of an issue (unless you want to watch 4K 60fps). But due to the high CPU usage a portable device basically loses its portability. Is there away to circumvent this?submitted by /u/ouml
hackerboards: Udoo has surpassed its Kickstarter goal for a "Udoo X86" hacker SBC with a quad-core Braswell SoC, 4GB RAM, and Arduino compatibility via a Curie module.
Michael Tremer today, April 14, 2016, announced the release and immediate availability for download of the 100th Core Update of the IPFire 2.19 Linux kernel-based firewall distribution.
There’s a few outstanding issues folks might hit, but we figured it was finally time to push to stable. If you use includes for handlers you might hit ( https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/13485 ). This one will be fixed in 2.1 by allowing you to add a config option to set includes as static or dynamic. Also, you might see some intermittent issues with some hosts saying “unable to resolve remote temp directory” ( https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/13876 ). Hopefully this will be fixed in 126.96.36.199, and there are some workarounds in the issue.
Ex-Kubuntu maintainer Jonathan Riddell has announced the upgrade of the KDE Neon base packages from Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) to the upcoming Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) branch.
The developer introduced the KDE Neon project to the Linux community at the end of January, during the FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting) 2016 event, which was welcomed in particular by those who love having the latest KDE technologies on top of an Ubuntu Linux base.
Qt 5.7 continues moving along and due to the concurrent release work with the much-delayed Qt 5.6 that finally shipped in March, the Qt 5.7 beta is already imminent.
The Qt Company today uploaded Qt 5.7 beta packages for Windows, Linux, Mac, and then the source packages. These Qt 5.7.0 beta packages will be promoted to being the official beta in a few days time if no serious bugs are discovered by early testers.
The chemistry created by the Kolab Systems-Collabora Productivity partnership enabled CloudSuite, the first 100% open-source, enterprise-grade cloud office suite. Kolab Systems' contribution is its Kolab open-source groupware and collaboration framework; Collabora Productivity is the architect behind LibreOffice Online, the cloud-based office productivity suite. The integration of CloudSuite into Kolab allows users to work on documents simultaneously using a full-featured on-line office suite.
Are you familiar with Apache Storm? Not everyone is, but it, along with another Apache tool called Flink, is competing with tools like Apache Spark in the Big Data space. These tools focus on streaming data processing, which is emerging as a huge theme in the data analytics world.
The last time I wrote about Apache Wookie was May 2012, on the occasion of the open-source project's 0.10.0 release.
OSM was formed under the auspices of European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) earlier this year, around the same time as the OPEN-Orchestrator Project (OPEN-O), a Linux Foundation group that is taking a different approach to unified open source-based orchestration efforts.
Google has released Chrome 50 for Windows, OS X, and Linux. The update brings several improvements, as well as bug and security fixes, apart from new features. An update for Android and Chrome OS is also expected to roll out soon.
I was contacted by Mozilla with the request to "police" our forum, since we (Pale Moon devs) are in direct control of the things discussed and posted here.
I'd like to clarify our position on this kind of thing to keep things from becoming unpleasant in both our relationship with you, the community, and our relationship with Mozilla:
We do not censor your posts, and this will not change in the future -- this is an open forum.
My Percona Live Data Performance Conference talk is called ActorDB: an alternative view of a distributed database. ActorDB is an open source database that was developed using a distributed model: it uses an SQL database that speaks the MySQL client/server protocol.
Facebook doesn’t sell software, but it’s arguably the largest open source software company in the world.
In the last few years, the social network has accelerated its contributions to open source, providing not only code it uses in its own operations, such as its artificial intelligence software Torch, but also designs for servers and entire data centers. At the company’s F8 conference for developers and business partners this week, Facebook’s open source leaders announced continued progress on such projects as React Native, which helps developers use the same code on different operating systems.
The OpenEMR community has released version 4.2.1. This new version is 2014 ONC Certified as a Modular EHR. OpenEMR 4.2.1 has numerous new features including 30 language translations and a patient flow board.
Despite its historic significance, Rome’s Tiber River has become extremely polluted. In a bid to clean up the murky, trash-infested waters, deltastudio designed Albula, an interactive floating structure that combines elements from historic water mills with bio-based techniques like phytoremediation. Even better, the Albula is designed as an open-source and scalable project that can be replicated in a variety of contexts.
Last year a new project hit Kickstarter called Mycroft that promises to build an artificial intelligence assistant. The campaign set out to raise $99,000 and raised just shy of $128,000.
Governments should listen to society in order to connect to and be part of an increasingly open world. Open data and citizen participation, rather than organisations and processes, are now the starting point for creating a government that is in close contact with society, knows what is going on, and defines problems and finds solutions in collaboration with society. So say three Dutch public servants in an article just published on Platform Overheid (Platform Government).
My love for Wikimedia started while I was reading an article about the Bangladesh Liberation war on the English Wikipedia after my 10th board exam (like, an annual exam for 10th grade students in America). By mistake I clicked on a link that took me to an India Wikipedia article, and I started reading. Something was written in Odia on the lefthand side of the article, so I clicked on that, and reached a ଭାରତ/Bhārat article on the Odia Wikipedia. I was excited to find a Wikipedia article in my native language!
I have a couple of VPS running at Digitalocean and currently I'm working on setting up a centeral backup server that automatically does pull backups from other servers. As I use git to manage my apps' source code, I'd only like to back up user / client uploaded content e.g product images when it comes to an ecommerce store and the database connected to the given app on an hourly basis, and only do a backup of the app every day.
Ideally the process would look like the following:
I'd like to have 2 types of backups
My apps are around 100-500 MB with everything included so storage and bandwidth shouldn't be an issue, that's why I'd like hourly backups as well.
I've read other threads recommending rsnapshot, rdiff, bacula but It seemed to me that these focus on entire snapshot backups which is not the case for me. I'd prefer to have it done as vanilla as possible.
What would you recommend? Is there a solution I've missed after reading tons of threads and posts?submitted by /u/andretheseal
