Forget Perfection, Release Your App to the World

,----[ Quote ]
| Most developers are probably familiar with 
| Linux founder Linus Torvaldsâ motto: 
| ârelease early, release often.â The reason 
| is quite simple: Shipping something useful 
| is better than withholding that usefulness 
| until itâs reached perfection.


Localization pros offer a Translation Toolkit

,----[ Quote ]
| Most of the Translate Toolkitâs 
| infrastructure is provided by SourceForge.net 
| â version control, mailing lists, file 
| releases, and web site â but the project also 
| uses locamotion.org for hosting the official 
| Pootle server as a showcase, testing 
| experimental features of Pootle, and for 
| managing its own UI translations. It also 
| uses Bugzilla for bug reporting, with 
| infrastructure hosted by the Junta de 
| Extremadura in Spain.



Linux 2.6.32

,----[ Quote ]
| This release _feels_ long overdue due to
| two empty weeks for me (kernel summit and
| thanksgiving week vacation), but it's
| actually less than three months since
| 2.6.31, so I guess it's actually not that
| far off the normal schedule.
| I've been merging a few things that were
| pending while I was offline, but it really
| seems to have been pretty quiet. The
| biggest thing since -rc8 is the horribly
| timed stability fixes for fscache, which
| caused some hickups and I really wish it
| hadn't happened that way, but apart from
| that it's mainly small updates (and mainly
| drivers).


Linux kernel 2.6.32 released


What's new in Linux 2.6.32

,----[ Quote ]
| 3D support for newer Radeon graphics chips,
| better use of power saving features offered
| by the latest hardware and numerous
| enhancements to KVM and Btrfs are some of
| the outstanding items among the many
| thousands of changes undertaken for the
| latest kernel version. Various other
| improvements should also make Linux 2.6.32
| more reactive and as a result, feel faster.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
