[$] Free software during wartime

금, 2023/03/24 - 12:24오전
Just over 27 years ago, John Perry Barlow's declaration of the independence of Cyberspace claimed that governments "have no sovereignty" over the networked world. In 2023, we have ample reason to know better than that, but we still expect the free-software community to be left alone by the affairs of governments much of the time. A couple of recent episodes related to the war in Ukraine are making it clear that there are limits to our independence.

[$] Jumping the licensing shark

목, 2023/03/23 - 6:31오전
The concept of copyleft is compelling in a lot of ways, at least for those who want to promote software freedom in the world. Bradley Kuhn is certainly one of those people and has long been working on various aspects of copyleft licensing and compliance, along with software freedom. He came to Everything Open 2023 to talk about copyleft, some of its history—and flaws—and to look toward the future of copyleft.

[$] Hopes and promises for open-source voice assistants

수, 2023/03/22 - 12:59오전
At the end of 2022, Paulus Schoutsen declared 2023 "the year of voice" for Home Assistant, the popular open-source home-automation project that he founded nine years ago. The project's goal this year is to let users control their home with voice commands in their own language, using offline processing instead of sending data to the cloud. Offline voice control has been the holy grail of open-source home-automation systems for years. Several projects have tried and failed. But with Rhasspy's developer Mike Hansen spearheading Home Assistant's voice efforts, this time things could be different.

[$] Reducing direct-map fragmentation with __GFP_UNMAPPED

화, 2023/03/21 - 1:15오전
The kernel's direct map makes all of a system's physical memory available to the kernel within its address space — on 64-bit systems, at least. This seemingly simple feature has proved to be hard to maintain, in the face of the requirements faced by current systems, while keeping good performance. The latest attempt to address this issue is this patch set from Mike Rapoport adding more direct-map awareness to the kernel's page allocator.

25 Years of curl

월, 2023/03/20 - 11:08오후
Daniel Stenberg observes the 25th anniversary of the curl project.

We really have no idea exactly how many users or installations of libcurl there are now. It is easy to estimate that it runs in way more than ten billion installations purely based on the fact that there are 7 billion smart phones and 1 billion tablets in the world , and we know that each of them run at least one, but likely many more curl installs.

Curl 8.0.0 has also been released (quickly followed by 8.0.1).

월, 2023/03/20 - 9:22오전
The 6.3-rc3 kernel prepatch is out for testing. "So rc3 is fairly big, but that's not hugely usual: it's when a lot of the fixes tick up as it takes a while before people find and start reporting issues."

[$] Generic iterators for BPF

금, 2023/03/17 - 10:44오후
BPF programs destined to be loaded into the kernel are generally written in C but, increasingly, the environment in which those programs run differs significantly from the C environment. The BPF virtual machine and associated verifier make a growing set of checks in an attempt to make BPF code safe to run. The proposed addition of an iterator mechanism to BPF highlights the kind of features that are being added — as well as the constraints placed on programmers by BPF.
