- Qt Creator will change it's code model again - to clangd. For now, it is available for testing by brave early adopters, but it will become the default in the near future.
- Also in Qt Creator, another batch of cmake support changes is incoming.
- Release news: Qt 6.2.2 is planned for the end of November. Qt 5.12.12 should be out by the end of November, too. Qt 5.15.7 has been released already, there are no immediate plans to release 5.15.8.
- Qt Project has passed through it's very first vote of no confidence. Ossi has lost his approver rights.
- If GDB startup is very slow for you, watch this.
- A quite interesting, insightful and funny piece about Hyperlambda, ORM, .NET and other technologies - also why and how they are slow (or fast).
- Raspberry Pi's Mesa drivers are now fully compatible with Vulkan 1.1 API. The team has also greatly improved overall performance.
- *Hint hint* 5-hour working days improve productivity! This is of course only one example, but there is a growing volume of real, statistical research confirming this. Another example.
- Android's lack of support for most modern Unicode emojis is being addressed.
- RPi Zero 2 W is very efficient when it comes to power draw.
- You can hack RPi 3 to boot in just 2 seconds.
- A short piece about pitfalls of unit testing and code coverage metrics.
- How our competitors (and my neighbors) used RPis to make their office smarter.
- RISC-V is getting closer in performance to ARM and x86. Nice! And scary... supporting all these architectures in our apps might be a challenge ;-).
- Everybody is laughing at Apple's new cleaning cloth (19 dollars in the US, even more in other countries), but... it sold out immediately. New orders' deliveries are delayed by several weeks. So, you can laugh as much as you want, but Apple still won this round, at least when it comes to making money.
Science & others
- We've measured (veeeery indirectly) the depth to which the giant red spot on Jupiter extends. It's DEEP!
- NASA is planning a successor to the Voyager missions.
- And here's a guy arguing the shortages and inflation are all caused by central planning. There is a lot of truth in this, of course, but also it's a massive oversimplification of the situation. In any case, a good thing to read.
- Our solar system is located in a huge magnetic tunnel, it seems.
- Liquid metal is a cheap and efficient tool to convert CO2 into carbon and oxygen.
- More about AlphaFold. It's awesome.
