,----[ Quote ]
| JFL Peripheral Solutions, the leading 
| independent provider of scanner driver 
| development services and products, today 
| announced the availability of new Linux 
| drivers, for Visioneer and Xerox DocuMate 
| scanners, that expand the compatibility of 
| these scanners to Linux operating systems with 
| exclusive image processing technology. The new 
| standard SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) driver 
| enables users to scan on Linux-based operating 
| systems including Ubuntu, Suse, Suse 
| Enterprise, Debian and Fedora. In addition to 
| the SANE driver, JFL also announced a soon to 
| be available TWAIN 2.0 driver that is platform 
| independent.


Proposed X.org development cycle changes

,----[ Quote ]
| The developers behind X.org, the foundation of 
| nearly all graphical user interfaces (GUIs) 
| for Linux, want to change their current 
| development model. Contrary to the initial 
| plans, recent X.org releases have been rather 
| irregular and unpredictable. Consequently, 
| X.org developer Peter Hutterer has proposed 
| the introduction of a six month development 
| cycle.



NVIDIA Publicly Releases Its OpenCL Linux Drivers

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been no secret that NVIDIA has been working on
| an OpenCL Linux driver for their graphics processors
| just as AMD has been doing, but up until now their
| beta drivers were only available to registered
| NVIDIA developers. Today though -- on the same day
| as NVIDIA's OpenCL driver launch for Windows -- they
| have made their OpenCL support publicly available.
