Tizen 2.2.1 was announced yesterday in the lead up to today’s Tizen Developer Summit, and the message that was sent out in the keynote is that 2.2.1 is feature complete and capable of being deployed on smartphones. However, towards the end of the keynote we were given a look at what to expect with Tizen 3.0, and here are some of the major points:
NVIDIA has announced that it has dropped support for the 32-bit Linux-x86 CUDA and OpenCL applications.
FreeBSD 10.0 Beta 3, an operating system for x86, ARM, IA-64, PowerPC, PC-98, and UltraSPARC architectures, is now available for download and testing.
The Linux 3.12 kernel was released on Sunday evening but prior to that was a last-minute pull request that got rejected by Linus Torvalds and with it he reaffirmed the focus of Linux on 64-bit.
Wind River has expanded the hardware support in its embedded Linux for the latest ARM, Intel, MIPS, and Power architectures as well as updating the kernel, toolchain, and user space for the latest Yocto Project release.
Vendetta Online is a 3D space combat MMORPG for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. This MMO permits thousands of players to interact as the pilots of spaceships in a vast universe. Users may build their characters in any direction they desire, becoming rich captains of industry, military heroes, or outlaws. A fast-paced, realtime "twitch" style combat model gives intense action, coupled with the backdrop of RPG gameplay in a massive online galaxy.
I still remember buying my first 64-bit processor -- the AMD Athlon 64 3200+. I bought it a decade ago for a system built in 2003. At the time, home computers were still mostly using 32-bit processors and running 32-bit software. However, one of my favorite Linux distributions, Ubuntu, has been offering 64-bit versions since 2004 with the Warty Warthog release.
Canonical is now offering the 32-bit of its Ubuntu operating system, either the LTS or the regular one, as default, but this might change soon.
Utorrent has released a 64 bit build for Linux platforms (see details here). The release is built on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). The problem is that if you try to run it on a distribution like RHEL/CentOS or any older distribution with old libraries, it will fail because of the newer dependencies like glibc 2.14 and libssl 1.0.0 etc.
While 64-bit Linux desktop support has been in good shape for years, it seems there's a surprising number of Intel/AMD Linux desktop users undecided whether to use the 32-bit or 64-bit installation images of their favorite Linux distribution. For the latest perspective on 32-bit versus 64-bit Linux performance, here are said benchmarks from the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development state.
Valve has launched a new stable version for its Steam for Linux client, bringing a lot of interesting new features.
The purpose of this video is to demonstrate a basic installation of Kali Linux from Offensive Security in a new Virtual Machine guest created in VMware Workstation 7x. Installation of this Linux distribution was performed using the Kali Linux installation disc ISO available for download from http://www.kali.org.
