开源基础设施,桌面和物联网开发者都聚焦在Ubuntu 19.04

2019年4月18日,Canonical今天宣布Ubuntu 19.04 正式发布,新版系统将聚焦开源基础设施部署,开发者桌面,物联网和云到端的软件分发等领域。

“Ubuntu在电信,金融和多媒体领域的开源优势已经扩展到其他领域。从公有云到私有数据中心再到边缘设备或集群,开源已成为效率和创新的标志。Ubuntu 19.04包含了支持领先项目的转换,以及用于加速这些域的应用程序的开发人员工具。” Canonical的CEO Mark Shuttleworth说道。

从云到端的开源基础设施

Ubuntu 19.04 整合了新近关键和拥有更长的生命周期的开源基础设施项目,如OpenStack, Kubernetes, 和 Ceph。以及针对从裸机,VMware和OpenStack到每个主要公有云的多云和本地运营的高级生命周期管理。

Announcing OpenJDK 11 packages in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

OpenJDK 11 Ubuntu 18.04

OpenJDK 11 is now the default Java package in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, replacing OpenJDK 10, the previously supported rapid release version and original package default for Ubuntu 18.04. This OpenJDK package is covered by the standard, LTS upstream security support and will also be the default package for the upcoming Ubuntu 19.04 release.

Canonical、Ubuntu 19.04をリリース、 オープンインフラストラクチャ、デベロッパーデスクトップ、 およびIoTにフォーカス

※本プレスリリースは2019年4月18日に英国ロンドンで発表したプレスリリースの日本語訳です。

Canonicalは本日、オープンインフラストラクチャのデプロイメント、デベロッパーデスクトップ、IoT、クラウド=エッジ間のソフトウェアディストリビューションを強化したUbuntu 19.04をリリースいたしました。

CanonicalのCEOであるMark Shuttleworthは次のように述べています。「Ubuntuでオープンソースを活用する動きは、通信、金融、メディアだけでなく、さまざまな分野に広がっています。パブリッククラウドからプライベートデータセンター、エッジアプライアンス、クラスターに至るまで、いまやオープンソースの活用は効率性と革新性の基準といえます。Ubuntu 19.04は、こうした変化を支える主要なプロジェクトと、これらの領域への適用を推進するための開発者ツールを提供します。」

Open infrastructure, developer desktop and IoT are the focus for Ubuntu 19.04

18th April, 2019: Canonical today announced the release of Ubuntu 19.04, focused on open infrastructure deployments, the developer desktop, IoT, and cloud to edge software distribution.

KDE Applications 19.04 Released

openexpo

The first new applications bundle release of the year adds stability, coherence and new features that help users become more comfortable and more productive using KDE software.

KDE's file manager, Dolphin, can now show previews of more types of files, including Microsoft Office files, Blender 3D scenes, and EPUB eBooks. Continuing in the same department, previews of text files containing code or markup will now show syntax highlighting. All of the above will help users identify the contents of a file even before opening it. Other usability improvements include the option to choose which split to close when clicking the Close Split button, smarter tab placement, and a more practical way of tagging files.

Okular, KDE's document viewer, now lets users verify PDFs that have been digitally signed. Digital signatures are used in official documents to confirm that the document comes from the right source, and that it has not been tampered with. Okular also lets you edit LaTeX documents directly in the viewer and has improved touchscreen compatibility, making it much easier to use it in presentation mode.

Kontact has also improved, with KMail receiving most of the changes. Starting with this release, KMail can correct your grammar in the texts of your messages. A new thing you will find in this version of Kontact is KItinerary, a travel assistant developed by Volker Krausse that advises you on how to best get to your destination using meta-data from your e-mails.

Many other apps have been improved: Konsole has made using tabs easier, Spectacle gives you more options when taking and saving screenshots, and Kdenlive has overhauled the timeline, making editing video easier and more fun, just to mention a few changes.

As always, you can read more about KDE Applications 19.04 in the official announcement. Many distributions are currently packaging Applications 19.04 ready for update and install. For the first time, you can install many of the apps on any distro directly from the Snap Store.

<div>Industrial & Embedded Linux: Looking Ahead</div>

I recently returned from an extended visit to Germany, where my colleagues and I kept busy attending conferences, visiting customers and partners. We travelled around the country, talking to many, many people at dozens of companies about embedded Linux. We confirmed existing trend data, and gained exciting new insights! Now that I’m back, I’ll summarize key takeaways here.

MAAS – 中小企業向けの高速で効果的な仮想化

MAAS vritualisation

仮想化技術の登場により、私たちのITインフラの利用方法は大きく変化しました。理論的には、単一サーバーリソースを共有して複数の分散したオペレーティングシステムを稼働することで、柔軟性がもたらされ、オペレーションが容易になるはずです。しかし実際には、技術面での深い知識と広範なトレーニングを必要とする機能が多数あるため、仮想化インフラの管理はコストが高く、複雑です。特に、各所にインストールされた少数のサーバーで分散型インフラを管理する必要がある場合は、このような課題がより顕著になります。

Make compelling videos with free software: Director’s Cut

Creating videos is easy. Creating great videos, not so much. A good production starts with an idea, but it also requires talent, time and tools. We cannot do much about the first two, but we sure can give you some nice ideas on the tools you want to make snappy videos.
