The first sum-up news,the number one 🙂 This is planned to be a weekly post to sum up what’s been up during the week, major and less major facts (infact :D). So let’s start :

  • Better didgital T.V.
  • New screen resolution control , new sound theme and new Wallpapers added

For a more details you can head over the official release announcement .

On the same subject a vague road map has appeared to a Gnome 3.0 release date.

This week and last week  seemed to be the week of Betas and Alphas, as major distribtions just made the release of them:

Also there is the fact that the gentoo team changed their release sheudle due to lack of manpower so if you think you can help them just head over there 🙂

And last but not least the release of gOS3 gadgets. It’s an Ubuntu based distros aimed for the Netbooks and the web 2.0 .

Another fact is the the announcement of an upcoming blender gamekit 2nd edition from the YoFrankie Game blog

From the Hardware side it seems that Android is getting nearer to a release and there is a nice Buzz around it.

A good news for the Linux WiFi users is the release of Atheros HAL under Free Software License You can check out the news here. or here.

That’s it for this week. I know that this doesn’t sum up all the news and surely I did missed some important ones, you can state them in the comments, that would be nice. I’m open for suggestion to make this better, nd in the next week I’ll put a more complete one, I do hope so .


It’s been a while without a post… 😦 I don’t want to post just for the sake of it. With this blog I wanted, and I still want to share with other people what I like, discover from them and vice versa. As the title of the post assume it seems that I don’t have  that much “free-time” anymore.So I decided to organize my work. By doing so, I will let this blog be  dealing with the open-source world and my other hobbies. And on the other side, I’m actually putting up another blog/web-site for my “professional” projects. That said, I’m going to post weekly a little recap about the most important news in the open-source world (of course important is relative to me :p) . With this I hope to keep this blog up for a little while.

Till the next post then 🙂

Hi everyone , I’m passing by as fast as I can (If there were some kind of Dopler effect you would have noticed it ).

Anyways here is a link to a site called ICS Network . What’s special about it is that it holds interesting Qt ressources. Under the Learning Center tab you can find Video tutorials and white papers , seminar and trainig courses you can attend depending on where you live on this planet .

Hope this will be helpful to you as it has been to me.

Again I didn’t manage to put post I i’ve been busy elsewhere, sorry about that. But here is a new post about gdb. Gdb stands for GnuDebugger. If your using Linux/Unix systems it’s a must have tool. I’ve come throught a segmentation fault and it really helped me finding where the problem where coming from. So here are two links if you want to give it a try

Here are two screen-shots of me using gdb (still debugging T_T)
