Top News

In the week just passed, Android bots got selective and went for rooted phones, the first release candidate for Linux 3.4 arrived, systemd absorbed udev, Canonical announced Metal-as-a-Service, and a game appeared which let you play at running your own Linux distribution. In other news, Red Hat donated $100,000 to various good causes, real time Linux was experimentally proven, a little extra language boosted JavaScript's performance, Oracle and Google headed for court, and a hacker was convicted for accessing PayPal accounts.

Featured Articles

This week, Chris Von Eitzen laid out a selection of open source applications which you can take anywhere, be it Windows, Linux or Mac OS X. Meanwhile Thorsten Leemhuis took a look at how Intel fixed the hibernation bugs and other Linux kernel news in the wake of the first release candidate of Linux 3.4. He also commented on how Microsoft's position in the "Who does what" Linux league tables says more about statistics than about Microsoft.

Open Source Releases

Big releases include OpenGamma 1.0, Jitsi 1.0 and OpenStack Essex, while there are also updates to Rails, VirtualBox, LibreOffice and KDE SC. Ones to watch include the Qt 5.0 alpha, Apache's Sqoop, Adobe's malware classifier and the freshly Apache-licensed CloudStack from Citrix.
