[$] Rusty's reminiscences

토, 2019/02/02 - 7:45오전
Rusty Russell was one of the first developers paid to work on the Linux kernel and the founder of the conference now known as linux.conf.au (LCA); he is one of the most highly respected figures in the Australian free-software community. The 2019 LCA was the 20th edition of this long-lived event; the organizers felt that it was an appropriate time to invite Russell to deliver the closing keynote talk. He used the opportunity to review his path into free software and the creation of LCA, but first a change of clothing was required.

[$] Design for security

목, 2019/01/31 - 6:01오전

Serena Chen began her talk in the Security, Identity & Privacy miniconf at linux.conf.au 2019 with a plan to dispel a pervasive myth that "usability and security are mutually exclusive". She hoped that by the end of her talk, she could convince the audience that the opposite is true: good user experience design and good security cannot exist without each other. It makes sense, she said, because a secure system must be reliable and controllable, which means it must be usable, while a usable system must be less confusing, thus it is more secure.

[$] An open-source artificial pancreas

Dana Lewis said that her keynote at linux.conf.au 2019 would be about her journey of learning about open source and how it could be applied in the healthcare world. She hoped it might lead some attendees to use their talents on solutions for healthcare. Her efforts and those of others in the community have led to a much better quality of life for a number of those who suffer from a chronic, time-consuming disease.

Kodi 18 is here

수, 2019/01/30 - 4:57오전
The Kodi team has announced the release of Kodi 18.0 "Leia". "One of the big features of this release: support for gaming emulators, ROMs and controls. This is a significant topic in its own right, so look out for future posts on this, but suffice it to say at this time that you now have a whole world of retro gaming at your fingertips, all from the same interface as your movies, music and TV shows. For the genuine experience as well, we've also introduced support for joysticks, gamepads, and other platform-specific controls, so the games will work just as was intended."

[$] Systemd as tragedy

화, 2019/01/29 - 5:05오전
Tragedy, according to Wikipedia, is "a form of drama based on human suffering that invokes an accompanying catharsis or pleasure in audiences". Benno Rice took his inspiration from that definition for his 2019 linux.conf.au talk on the story of systemd which, he said, involves no shortage of suffering. His attempt to cast that story for the pleasure of his audience resulted in a sympathetic and nuanced look at a turbulent chapter in the history of the Linux system.

Bison 3.3 released

일, 2019/01/27 - 6:00오전
Version 3.3 of the Bison parser generator is out. "The new option --update replaces deprecated features with their modern spelling, but also applies fixes such as eliminating duplicate directives, etc. It is now possible to annotate rules with their number of expected conflicts. Bison can be made relocatable. The symbol declaration syntax was overhauled, and in particular, %nterm, that exists since the origins of Bison, is now an officially supported (and documented!) feature. C++ parsers now feature genuine symbol constructors, and use noexcept/constexpr. The GLR parsers in C++ now support the syntax_error exceptions. There are also many smaller improvements, including a fix for a bug which is at least 31 years old."

[$] Snowpatch: continuous-integration testing for the kernel

토, 2019/01/26 - 9:36오전
Many projects use continuous-integration (CI) testing to improve the quality of the software they produce. By running a set of tests after every commit, CI systems can identify problems quickly, before they find their way into a release and bite unsuspecting users. The Linux kernel project lags many others in its use of CI testing for a number of reasons, including a fundamental mismatch with how kernel developers tend to manage their workflows. At linux.conf.au 2019, Russell Currey described a CI system called Snowpatch that, he hopes, will bridge the gap and bring better testing to the kernel development process.
