"UPDATE 6/19/10: Lisa Hoover tweeted at me earlier this week “… Consider the source before you believe this crap.” I do plan to keep an eye on freshmeat; I sure hope she’s right. MM
Robin “Roblimo” Miller reported this weekend that the future looked bad for pioneering free software repository freshmeat.net.
Geek.net, the parent company of SourceForge.net, Slashdot.org, ThinkGeek.com, Geek.com, freshmeat.net, and ohloh.net, has told employees that it will be closing freshmeat.net and ohloh.net. This information has not yet been released to the public, but we’ve heard it from more than one Geek.net employee."
"Been meaning to do this for ages, so i shall start with an introduction. I am David Hubner, I have taken over maintainer of KInfoCenter and have rewritten if for KDE SC 4.5. I also wrote the Device Viewer in KInfoCenter and the new Summary Information page. The new Summary Information Page is what I would like to talk about. Hugo Pereira Da Costa has supplied two great patches to do with UI consistency, the first has been submitted but I would like KDE users opinion on the second. I like to get opinions before making large UI changes, so from the two images below, could you do me ( and KDE ) a favour and comment on which you prefer."
"Ah well, today marks a month since the official GSoC coding period started.
Brief intro: I’m working on implementing automatic tagging of faces for digiKam, with face detection and recognition. For that, I’ve been working on a library named libface that does the detection and training/recognition.
At some point, it was deemed necessary to make a Qt wrapper for libface, so that Qt/KDE programs could easily use it. This has been now (almost) done, and the resulting library is named libkface. libkface will be put somewhere in kdegraphics/libs as soon as the API freeze is over (I think), and will be usable not only by digiKam, but also by other programs like KPhotoAlbum."
"The "newthreading" project within the Python community is a new attempt at improving concurrency in Python programs and facilitating the removal of the much-maligned global interpreter lock. A proof-of-concept implementation has just been released. "This pure Python implementation is usable, but does not improve performance. It's a proof of concept implementation so that programmers can try out synchronized classes and see what it's like to work within those restrictions." More information can be found on the newthreading page. "
