The H week just gone has included the rise and fall of MySQL, the future for Nagios, the end of Firefox for Windows Mobile, the addition of the Ceph file system to Linux, maturing open source, DNS and SSL security issues, a scatological description of open source and much more.


In The H's featured content this week, we looked at the rise and fall of MySQL, talked with Nagios creator Ethan Galsted and the Kernel Log examined the addition of the Ceph file system to Linux. The H's Community Calendar for April, covering events of interest for the open source and development community in the UK, was published.

Open source

Hedge fund Elliot Associates bid for Novell was rebuffed and Mozilla dropped development of Firefox for Windows Mobile. Server agnostic JavaScript framework SproutCore reached version 1.0 and Amazon introduced a Java library for applications to work with its web services. FreeBSD 7.3 was released, Magnolia's CMS got support for the Groovy language and the CEO of Parallels apologised for his scatological and negative description of open source.

Open source releases


A security hole found in Firefox 3.6 saw a fix released ahead of schedule, the Mariposa malware was found on more Vodafone Android phones and the iPhone, IE8, Firefox and Safari all fell to attacks at Pwn2Own 2010. Google released a web security scanner, DNSSEC began deployment on root servers and the EFF asked if SSL was really secure.
