The Red Hat Press office announced the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 2.2 which includes: Virtual desktop support, Import and export, V2V : Virtual machine conversion, a Data Warehouse, and increased performance.
In other virtualization news, Richard W.M. Jones provided lots of libguestfs tips: Edit the Windows Registry in your VMs from the host, using virt-rescue on raw file or disk images (in addition to VM images), quickly getting help in guestfish, using virt-df to find out when filesystems are full (and an update) and using hivex to unpack a Windows Boot Configuration Data (BCD) hive.
Luis Villa wrote a piece on opensource.com about lawyers and open source. "There is a fairly common perception among FOSS hackers that there is no community of FOSS lawyers. Scratch the surface, though, and it turns out that- despite our handicaps- the FOSS legal community is there and growing. Since this question recently came up in the context of Mozilla's decision to revise the MPL, I thought it might be a good time to talk about this community here at opensource.com."
Máirín Duffy mentioned the creation of "A K12 Educator’s Guide to Open Source Software" with the goal of "introducing elementary school children to free & open source software, particularly creative tool."
Jeff Sheltren announced that the Open Source textbook on Open Source has been completed, and Greg DeKoenigsberg wrote an article about it on opensource.com, titles "Can Professors Teach Open Source?"
Karsten Wade made a number of announcements regarding Fedora's Summer Coding 2010 opportunities (See also the special section of this weeks Fedora Weekly News). First, there is a call for sponsors. That means universities, corporations, foundations, individuals and creative ideas. Ideas should be submitted by April 9. And Karsten's latest post has lots of useful links for getting involved and finding out more.
