The H Roundup Welcome to The H Roundup, your rapid review of the week with the most read news on The H, the security alerts and open source releases, and the essential feature articles – all in one quick-to-scan news item.

Top News

Canonical confirmed that it would be discontinuing use of CouchDB as part of its Ubuntu One service. The news broke that a hacker had allegedly remotely intruded into the industrial control systems of a hydroelectric power plant in Illinois; however, confusion was later caused as ICS-CERT said that the pump wasn't destroyed by an intrusion after all. A new open source JavaScript library that claims to offer most of jQuery's functions, at a fraction of the size, was released, a new Linux logging system could replace syslog and a new incremental garbage collector in Chrome will help to speed up the response times of JavaScript applications in the web browser.

Featured Articles
