It's looking less and less likely like Heterogeneous Memory Management (HMM) will be mainlined for the Linux 4.12 kernel. This is the long-in-development effort by Jerome Glisse that would benefit CUDA, OpenCL, and more by allow device memory to be transparently used by any device process and for mirroring process address space on a device.
Only three days after releasing the Linux 4.10.11, 4.9.23 LTS and 4.4.62 LTS kernels, Greg Kroah-Hartman announced today, April 21, 2017, the release of a new set of maintenance updates for the Linux 4.10, 4.9, and 4.4 kernel series.
Considering the fact that nearly three days had passed since the release of the Linux 4.10.11, 4.9.23 LTS and 4.4.62 LTS kernels, the Linux 4.10.12 and 4.9.24 LTS kernels change a total of 78 files, with 993 insertions and 459 deletions for Linux 4.10.12 and 938 insertions and 441 deletions for Linux 4.9.24, while Linux kernel 4.4.63 LTS is again a smaller patch changing a total of 48 files, with 518 insertions and 216 deletions.

I, Leah Rowe, am seeking to submit a proposal to GNU for Libreboot to re-join the GNU project. It was previously a member of GNU between 14 May 2016 to 15 September 2016.
After leaving the GNU last year and criticizing the Free Software Foundation and all the drama that ensued after this project was just part of the GNU for months, Libreboot is considering re-joining the GNU.
Libreboot leader Leah Rowe is retracting her statements against the FSF/GNU, wants to make amends, and wants Libreboot back under the GNU umbrella.
Hi world, I've set up a Debian box to function as a fileserver (Samba) to share downloads and also uploads in the home network (2-3 computers).
I'd like rtorrent to save files in /mnt/harddrive2/Downloads instead of downloading in the user directory and moving them manually to the larger harddrive I have mounted.
I'd want to access that directory, also be able to remove movies from that directory without rooting and remove "manually". Also I'd like all computers on the network to be able to create and store files in another folder named Uploads.
So rtorrent to download in /mnt/harddrive2/Downloads and samba users to be able to write to 'Upload' folder in /mnt/harddrive2/. I guess its all about chown and chmod, i've been reading about it, even tried to solve it by symbolic links but with not success.
Thanks in advance!

When Docker announced the Moby Project earlier this week, it wasn’t entirely clear why it mattered—or even what it was. It sounded like Docker was trying to share its internal processes for building Docker from components donated to the community.
This is a post describing my involvement with the Debian GNU/Linux port for RISC-V (unofficial and not endorsed by Debian at the moment) and announcing the availability of the repository (still very much WIP) with packages built for this architecture.
If not interested in the story but you want to check the repository, just jump to the bottom.
Devuan, the effort to build a systemd-free version of Debian, has released Devuan Jessie 1.0.0, a release candidate felt to be just about the finished article.
In a mail sent to the project's followers the self-proclaimed “Veteran Unix Admins” behind Devuan say “This Devuan Jessie release candidate is as close as we can get to a 'long term support' universal base distribution free from systemd, in the original spirit of Debian.”
“The final Devuan Jessie release will follow shortly and then we will turn our attention to 'Ascii', the current testing branch.”
Our April 2017 gift to you is the long-awaited release of Devuan Jessie stable release candidate (1.0.0-RC). If all goes as planned, this will be our first Devuan stable release and our first long term support (LTS) release as well.
Topware Interactive are revamping Two Worlds II [Steam] and bringing out a new DLC named Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae. Both will see Linux support on May 25th.
I've been playing with Construct 3 from Scirra on and off during the beta and I have to say I'm really impressed with it.
I'm no programmer, sure I dabble in PHP to make the code that runs this site, but I'm not very good at it. Construct 3 makes development and prototyping pretty easy, since it's all based on event sheets.
After more than three months, the major and stable Wine 2.0 branch got its first point release, versioned 2.0.1, which fixes a lot of issues and crashed with numerous Windows apps and games.
Wine 2.0.1 is now the latest stable Wine release, recommended for all GNU/Linux users, and besides deprecating the wineinstall component, it implements a total of 47 bug fixes, improving detection of Nvidia GeForce GT 525M GPUs, as well as support for the Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating system.
Ubuntu developers today have announced a "tech preview" of their new text-based installer for Ubuntu Server.
Earlier this month we heard of a new Ubuntu Server installer being worked on and it was dubbed Subiquity. Now that the 17.04 release has cleared and 17.10 development begun, the new installer was announced as a tech preview for Ubuntu Server 17.04.
Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre announced, "During the 17.04 development cycle, the Ubuntu Foundations team has been working on a new experimental installer for servers. We are now ready to get feedback from a wider audience."
The question is simple "Do you prefer dark or light themes in your workflow?"
The important part of the question is "in your workflow" which means not only to "lwow-factor/aesthetics" but also "work/practicality" ;)
After you have voted, leave a comment in the discussion below if you want to provide a backstory/reasoning behind your choice - you could include the type of work you do mostly on your computer (webdesign, desktop progamming, low level programming, design, writing, network administration, gaming, etc).
Here is my reasoning ;)
OK... my preference nowadays are light themes. Here is my current workflow:
So... why do I use light themes instead of dark themes nowadays?
I used to prefer dark themes in the past. I have spend an insane amount of time within Fruity Loops environment (now FL Studio) while creating my electronic music - mostly dnb, jungle, etc. - like most of the kids from the ex-Soviet block in the early 2000s. The environment looked like this:
However, things changed when I start doing web development and programming. Suddenly, I was forced to escape my preferred dark cave and embrace the light themes.
In my case - your could be completely different - the constant switching between white (websites) and dark (editor) was causing my eyes pain - i.e. if I am finding some bug at 02:00 AM in my editor with a dark theme and then switch after 5 minutes to a completely white background website on my 27" monitor my eyes were screaming with pain. If it was only a few times it could be manageable, however - if you do this 1000 times a day - you start to notice that you don't like these changes at all.
Using custom themes is not an option, because as a webdesigner/webdeveloper I need to see the websites of my clients as they really are, of course.
That's why I use always light themes so the transitions between my two most used environments (editor, browser) are not as much painful.
