[News] Programmers' Guide to New GTK+, Oracle's Option of Buying PHP Powerhouse

Hash: SHA1

Programming guide: the new text entry features in GTK+ 2.16

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 2.16 of the GTK+ toolkit, which was recently released, includes some 
| useful new features for text entry widgets. Ars gives you some code examples 
| and a hands-on look at how to use these features in your own programs.  


Oracle doesn't need Red Hat. It needs Zend

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle and Zend already collaborate on a PHP distribution for Oracle so the 
| two are hardly strangers. Oracle participates in the broad Java ecosystem, 
| but if it owned the lead PHP vendor it could take a commanding position in 
| the PHP space and carve out a real niche for itself. PHP is a critical 
| component of the LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) web stack and with Zend in 
| hand, Oracle could get a strong grip on its own web stack business.     



PHP Zend Framework 1.7 adds Adobe support

,----[ Quote ]
| The Zend Framework 1.7 also includes some other neat features that PHP
| developers will likely benefit from. Among them is the  ZendX_JQuery module
| which provides integration with the JQuery JavaScript toolkit. There is also
| support in the Zend_Search_Lucene module for indexing Office Open XML
| documents which could be a very useful thing too.


Why You Cannot Forge an Open Source Forge

,----[ Quote ]
| Although proprietary software may try to create the same kind of community
| using add-ons, extensions and the like, it can never hope to match the power
| of truly open software in this regard. Indeed, that's one of the great things
| about free software: the more that an associated company gives in terms of
| licensing its code freely, the more it is likely to receive from the
| community that forms around that code.


Will IBM Buy Zend / PHP ?

,----[ Quote ]
| In my view, there can only be one company and that company is IBM. Let me
| explain by first eliminating the other potential suitors.


Zend stacks PHP for work and play

,----[ Quote ]
| Other goals for the Zend Framework include improved AJAX integration -
| version 1.5 features server-side support with action helpers to automate AJAX
| detection and responses - and the bundling of Zend Framework with operating
| system distributions. Version 1.5 is being made available with Ubuntu.  


Next Eclipse platform could slip IBM's grip

,----[ Quote ]
| The next big release of Eclipse could see IBM's overwhelming dominance of the
| open source tools platform reduced, according to the foundation's chief.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
