Many of the updates this cycle were for importing and exporting bugs. One interesting bug fixed was fdo#67388, in which files in .deb packages weren’t owned by root:root. Another fixed was fdo#67235 where the Timefield is limited automatically to max. 00:00:01 in Base. “Copying an email address and pasting it in a plain text editor shows U+0001 instead of the email address, also when referring the cell in a formula expression” in Calc was also patched.

Forum Thread: A Comparison of Vagrant and Docker

czwartek, 29 Sierpień 2013

A Hacker News forum thread discusses the similarities and differences between Vagrant and Docker: “It is unfortunate that so many people compare Vagrant and Docker. While there is overlap, Docker is mostly not viable as a dev environment tool alone, so it isn’t a fair comparison. The main reason is because you have to be using Linux (and a recent Linux) as your main dev system, and in practice this is very rare.” 

A Hacker News forum thread discusses the similarities and differences between Vagrant and Docker: “ It is unfortunate that so many people compare Vagrant and Docker. While there is overlap, Docker is mostly not viable as a dev environment tool alone, so it isn’t a fair comparison. The main reason is because you have to be using Linux (and a recent Linux) as your main dev system, and in practice this is very rare. Move beyond indie developers and for all intents and purposes Linux desktops are non-existent (Vagrant is in use by companies like BBC, Expedia, Intuit, etc. and I can tell you most devs don’t know how to use Linux let alone run it as their primary dev platform).

“BUT, I agree that putting your dev environment in a Docker container is absolutely _amazing_, and there is a KILLER Vagrant/Docker combo.”

Usage of Tor Online Anonymity Tools Recently Doubled

czwartek, 29 Sierpień 2013

There are a number of reasons why many people around the globe want to be able to use the web and messaging systems anonymously, despite the fact that some people want to end Internet anonymity altogether. In some areas in the world, opressive government regulations threaten free speech, and even in the U.S. there has recently been uproar over NSA snooping. Online privacy is getting to be a very big deal. That’s why it’s notable that according to the latest statistics available through Tor Metrics Portal there has been a large 100 per cent increase in the number of Tor clients and as many as 1,200,000 users are now connecting to the network. Tor, from the Tor Project, is one of the most powerful…
