- vcperf performance analysis tool has been updated with build time analysis.
- Well, things are pretty quiet. We have Qt Creator 5 out now (good stuff!) and 5.15.6, 6.1.3 and 6.2 are coming but are not out yet.
- A look at CRUD interfaces and some issues following them closely.
- You can get Windows 11 running even on an old Nokia and the RPi 4.
- You all probably know this already, but Google is now only accepting AAB packages on Google Play Store. You can still install an APK manually, of course
- Rust is now finding its place in the Linux kernel, with good reception from developers.
- WebAssembly is aiming to reduce the use of filesystems and files in general - to remove the necessary locking and synchronization steps of disks. The article portrays this as a novelty, but... we've had that in Qt for 20+ years ;-).
- This is a big one, even though it seems not to have caught the popular attention: IBM has released CodeFlare - an open source framework for easy integration of AI into application.
- RT-Thread Smart - an operating system for embedded devices, using microkernel architecture.
- Valve has announced the Steam Deck - a portable console that's actually a pretty powerful desktop PC crammed into a small device. It runs Linux and KDE's Plasma!
- A short summary of a simple test of GitHub Copilot (AI-powered coding helper).
- KDE Connect is now available on Windows! With this software you can link your Android phone to your computer, get notifications, bidirectional clipboard etc.
- If you are using WireGuard for your VPN needs (and you should!), you can try WireGuardNT on Windows - it comes with much better performance than the regular Golang-based client.
- RaspberryPi - based weather clock which nicely shows when and what weather will be.
- Full documentation of Raspberry Pi's config file.
- SerenityOS is unix which looks like Windows 98 and is using a completely custom tech stack (POSIX-compatible, though). This is NOT linux :O!
- A great summary about Linux security from TrendMicro. This is a great argument in favor of "update asap" approach to digital life!
- GPL enforcement in practice...
- Jolla is profitable!
Science & others
- AI can now compute protein structures in 10 minutes, and it is a freely available project on GitHub.
- A flying car from Slovakia.
- Scientists have made a crystal out of electrons - 90 years after it was theorized to be possible.
- A new common feature of all cancers has been found, enabling possibilities for new cures and treatments.
- Animation (using real images from Juno spacecraft) of a flyby of Ganymede and Jupiter.
- We now (likely) know how Mars looks like inside thanks to InSight seismometer.
- The state of waste management in Poland and why illegal waste import is not such a big deal (hint: domestic waste is way worse :-().
- The Gulf Stream is collapsing, possibly leading to a huge climate destabilisation across the planet.
- Rings around a black hole!
- Trigonometry is way older than Pythagoras, it seems!
- Here is what to look for to spot early warning signs of dementia. Feel free to read and worry about yourself for the rest of the day :| It's a good article and solid science, but I don't recommend reading it if you are a hypochondriac like me.
- Quick, 7-minute workout routine with good health benefits, confirmed by science. For us remote working, it's certainly a good thing to consider!
- Real milk created by bacteria without any cows.
- Grizzly bear families align geographically with indigenous people's languages. Weird!
- We're close to solving the black hole paradox.
- China will begin testing thorium reactors, which may be the future of nuclear power -cleaner and safer than uranium reactors. BTW. when I say "safer" - modern uranium reactors are SUPER SAFE, don't get me wrong!
