VortexBox 1.4 released

,----[ Quote ]
| We are pleased to announce the release of 
| VortexBox 1.4. Continuing with our goal to 
| make VortexBox the universal server for 
| any media player we have added full DLNA 
| support to VortexBox. DLNA is the future 
| of media sharing and many players such as 
| PS3, Windows 7 Media Player, and Samsung 
| televisions support DLNA. Now you can 
| easily serve your music and video files to 
| all these devices.

Sabayon â Nightly Builds, Installer & Recruitment

,----[ Quote ]
| Next up is nightly builds of sabayon, yes you
| read that correctly. The idea is that you will
| have one ISO on your hard disk which you will
| keep updated using rsyncâs binary diff
| capabilities and the Sabayon rsync servers to
| only update the parts of the ISO that have
| changed, this is how we have been distributing
| ISOs to testers for a while now and is much
| quicker and easier than the old version using
| Xdelta. What has been done is that we have a
| scripted molecule install which creates a new
| ISO at 0200 UTC every night using the latest
| packages from the mainline repository, from
| these images the rysnc is updated and you can
| download the changes, simple but clever if you
| ask me.


Sabayon 5.3 Progress, Get Involved with Testing, Bumps

,----[ Quote ]
| It must be about time for an update, tough to
| blog when summer is here.  5.3 is in the works
| and is at a RC2 status.  Some of the changes
| include bug fixes of course, btrfs support,
| mono removed from grub and installer fixes.
| Keep in mind that btrfs is very young in
| development and should not be used in a stable
| environment.  I did try it out in a virtual box
| setting and it seemed to work good for the
| little bit of time I worked with it.  Mitch
| follows the progress of it and has been a good
| source for information.  It sounds like in
| kernel 2.6.36 things will even be better for
| btrfs.  Iâll have to try and keep an eye on it
| myself, seems promising.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
