Git?

Git is distributed version control, hmm quite similar to Svn. I used GIT to update source code from github. Then i used TortoiseGit because i’m kinda with TortoiseSVN. “Commit” in SVN is similar to “Push” in Git, “Update” is similar to “Pull”. Currently i don’t know what the exact differences between , but they said Git is superior from here and here. My friend said  (this is a joke anyway) the difference between Git and Svn is Svn doesn’t have SvnHub … LOL

I’ve just known a cool open source project for WoW Server. The name is Skyfire Project, the only WoW server that’s compatible with Cataclysm Expansion. This project was derived from TrinityCore Project. Skyfire has two parts, SkyfireEMU and SkyfireDB. SkyireEMU is the server app, written in C++, and SkyfireDB is the database, using MySQL.

Generally this Skyfire runs very well, but of course has a lot of bugs. These bugs somewhat made me furious but what you can expect fot a project that’s still so green. This project gave me some understanding in how a complex system works that have thousands line of code and hundreds of tables (difficult to understand too).

Thinking this project has potential but pity, has quite small community. It’ll be improved better if there’s a lot of people to contribute, yup, open source project common problem :(

Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu 10.04, the next major version of the popular Linux distribution, will be called Lascivious Liger Lucid Lynx. This version is highly significant because it will be offered with long-term support (LTS).

For the Lucid Lynx, the development team will focus their efforts on quality and stability! The main plans are to make Ubuntu 10.04 a bug-free operating system and bring quality improvements to the user interface, boot and installation experience and  top-notch hardware support. Another essential goal for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) will be to improve the startup speed to a 10 second boot!

What is Moonlight ?

Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight (http://silverlight.net), primarily for Linux and other Unix/X11 based operating systems. In September of 2007, Microsoft and Novell announced a technical collaboration that includes access to Microsoft’s test suites for Silverlight and the distribution of a Media Pack for Linux users that will contain licensed media codecs for video and audio.

I tested it in Linux Mint 7 and it works fine with Silverlight 1.0 website. The bad thing, it not works in Silverlight 2.0 :/

EXT4

ext4

Ext4 is the evolution of the most used Linux filesystem, Ext3. In many ways, Ext4 is a deeper improvement over Ext3 than Ext3 was over Ext2. Ext3 was mostly about adding journaling to Ext2, but Ext4 modifies important data structures of the filesystem such as the ones destined to store the file data. The result is a filesystem with an improved design, better performance, reliability and features.
Ext4 was released as a functionally complete and stable filesystem in Linux 2.6.28, and it’s getting included in all the modern distros (in some cases as the default fs), so if you are using a modern distro, it’s possible that you already have Ext4 support and you don’t need to modify your system to run Ext4.

“A newborn Koala spends about six months in the family before it heads off into the wild alone. Sounds about perfect for an Ubuntu release plan! I’m looking forward to seeing many of you in Barcelona, and before that, at a Jaunty release party. Till then, cheers.”

Mark Shuttleworth has announced Ubuntu 9.10:

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce the Karmic Koala, the newest member of our alliterative menagerie.

When you are looking for inspiration beyond the looming Jaunty feature freeze, I hope you’ll think of the Koala, our official mascot for Ubuntu 9.10. And if you’ll bear with me for a minute I’ll set the scene for what we hope to achieve in that time.
