Interesting Links – September 2012
What has interested me in the world of the internet in the last month?
Lets start with some release announcements:
- Linux From Scratch 7.2 was announced.
- Python-3.3 was released.
- The first alpha of Akabei (Chakra’s pacman replacement) was announced.
- Not exactly a “release” announcement, but Clang will be the default compiler on FreeBSD 10.0.
A good rant or two is always entertaining:
- Thomas (Arch dev) on systemd.
- Anti /tmp on tmpfs.
- An Arch Bang moderator has discovered I can be… let say opinionated… about incompetency.
- And this was just, well…
And some random links:
- Some posts about dealing with misbehaviour on the Debian developmental lists.
- The Open Build Service can now create Arch Linux packages.
- A warning about automatic updates in Fedora.
- An interesting approach to teaching programming (specifically Python) online.
- The first commit I pushed to the glibc git repo.
- Discussion about a format to replace tar. I want the ability to easily remove/replace files…
Finally, I do genetics too…
- The ENCODE project gave us a major insight into just how complex the human genome is.
