    KDE Frameworks are 70 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms. For an introduction see the Frameworks 5.0 release announcement.

  • KDE Frameworks 5.39 Brings KWayland, Kirigami Updates

    KDE Frameworks 5.39.0 was released this weekend as the latest complementary add-ons/libraries to Qt.

  • Updated Kubuntu 17.10 RC ISOs now available

    Following on from yesterday’s 1st spin of the 17.10 RC images by the ubuntu release team, today the RC images (marked Artful Final on the QA tracker) have been re-spun and updated.

    Please update your ISOs if you downloaded previous images, and test as before.

    Please help us by testing as much as you have time for. Remember, in particular we need i386 testers, on “bare metal” rather than VMs if possible.

  • Interview with Cillian Clifford

    I consider digital painting to be one of my weakest areas of art skills, so I spend a lot of time trying to improve it. Other areas of digital art I’m interested in include CAD, 3d modeling, digital sculpting, vector animation, and pixel art.

The Linux Foundation launched the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project a year ago with the intention of developing base layer, open source industrial-grade software starting with a 10-year Super Long-Term Support (SLTS) kernel. The SLTS kernel is now ready to go, and is being incorporated by Renesas in its RZ/G Linux Platform stack for its ARM-based RZ/G system-on-chips.

Linux Competitors (besides the obvious ones)?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-16 16:37

Just curious about this. Let's first decide not to talk about desktops or mobile devices. I assume everyone reading this knows about the competitive situation in those markets.

But what about other Linux scenarios?

1) Running the web: I know Windows servers are a thing, but I assume the scale ends somewhere. Could Walmart or Facebook run on Windows servers? Are there other, presumably Unix like, operating systems that are relevant here (BSD? etc)? And by relevant I mean that they are actually used, not that they could be used.

2) Supercomputers and such: again, are the Unix-like relevant OSs? Non Unix?

3) Large-scale commercial operations: do proprietary (from the likes of IBM etc) have any relevance in 2017?

4) Embedded devices: I know some entertainment systems run Windows, but what are the other alternatives?

Is there any easy way to find packages that are not actively maintained?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-16 15:40

I just wanted to know how you guys make sure the packages installed are actively maintained by the developer or community. If they are outdated, will they be removed from the repositories? Sorry if it is a stupid question.
