Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

General

Jonathan Dieter mentioned[1] that deltarpms should be working again now for Fedora 13.

Benjamin Otte analyzed[2] the performance of Cairo with a number of different graphics chipset and driver configurations. The results may surprise you.

Máirín Duffy found[3] a bunch of amusing geeky comic strips. But more seriously, Máirín identified[4] the first "Fedora Design Bounty Ninja". "Jef responded to our first Fedora Design Bi-Weekly Bounty just a couple of hours after it was posted, and he did an amazing job putting together a 6-page layout for the Fedora 13 feature profiles, carefully adhering to all of the Fedora branding guidelines and providing all of his source work!"

Adam Williamson reminded[5] Flash users running 64-bit systems how they can use Flash Player, now that the 64-bit downloads have been pulled.

Andrew Vermilya Jamison outled[6] a few of the exciting new features of Fedora 13.

Lennart Poettering suggested[7] a number of sources of data that could be used under Linux to help generate unique identifiers. "When programming software that cooperates with software running on behalf of other users, other sessions or other computers it is often necessary to work with unique identifiers. These can be bound to various hardware and software objects as well as lifetimes. Often, when people look for such an ID to use they pick the wrong one because semantics and lifetime or the IDs are not clear."

Lennart also wrote[8] a[9] pair of articles on handling locking under Linux (and the sad state of locking under Linux in general).

Luis Villa dissected[10] the US Supreme Court Bilski ruling. "I'm afraid that at the end of this brief train ride, my only firm conclusion can be that the real winners here are patent lawyers - this decision creates no new certainties, only uncertainties, which will encourage patenters to spend more money patenting things, and the rest of us to waste time and energy worrying about the problem - time and energy that should have been spent on innovating..."

The Red Hat Press Office announced[11] that Jared Smith will become the new Fedora Project Leader. Paul W. Frields posted[12] a few words about passing on the baton to Jared.
