Liberdade na Fronteira : KDE Edu Sprint 2017

11 de Dezembro de 2017, 15:22, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

Two months ago I attended to KDE Edu Sprint 2017 at Berlin. It was my first KDE sprint (really, I send code to KDE software since 2010 and never went to a sprint!) so I was really excited for the event.

KDE Edu is the an umbrella for specific educational software of KDE. There are a lot of them and it is the main educational software suite in free software world. Despite it, KDE Edu has received little attention in organization side, for instance the previous KDE Edu sprint occurred several years ago, our website has some problems, and more.

Therefore, this sprint was an opportunity not only for developers work in software development, but for works in organization side as well.

In organization work side, we discuss about the rebranding of some software more related to university work than for “education” itself, like Cantor and Labplot. There was a wish to create something like a KDE Research/Science in order to put software like them and others like Kile and KBibTex in a same umbrella. There is a discussion about this theme.

Other topic in this point was the discussions about a new website, more oriented to teach how to use KDE software in educational context than present a set of software. In fact, I think we need to do it and strengthen the “KDE Edu brand” in order to have a specific icon+link in KDE products page.

Follow, the developers in the sprint agreed with the multi operating system policy for KDE Edu. KDE software can be built and distributed to users of several OS, not only Linux. During the sprint some developers worked to bring installers for Windows, Mac OS, porting applications to Android, and creating independent installers for Linux distributions using flatpak.

Besides the discussions in this point, I worked to bring a rule to send e-mail to KDE Edu mailing list for each new Differential Revisions of KDE Edu software in Phabricator. Sorry devs, our mailboxes are full of e-mails because me.

Now in development work side, my focus was work hard on Cantor. First, I made some task triage in our workboard, closing, opening, and putting more information in some tasks. Secondly, I reviewed some works made by Rishabh Gupta, my student during GSoC 2017. He ported the Lua and R backend to QProcess and it will be available soon.

After it I worked to port Python 3 backend to Python/C API. This work is in progress and I expect to finish it to release in 18.04.

Of course, besides this amount of work we have fun with some beers and German food (and some American food and Chinese food and Arab food and Italian food as well)! I was happy because my 31 years birthday was in the first day of the sprint, so thank you KDE for coming to my birthday party full of code and good beers and pork dishes. 🙂

To finish, it is always a pleasure to meet the gearheads like my Spanish friends Albert and Aleix, the only other Mageia user I found personally in my life Timothée, my GSoC student Rishabh, my irmão brasileiro Sandro, and the new friends Sanjiban and David.

Thank you KDE e.V for provide resources to the sprint and thank you Endocode for hosting the sprint.

Week 49; three weeks left in 2017, and lots of things happening!

A hearty shout-out to our Translation team; advisory emails come through every day about translation updates to our many languages – on the wiki, on the blog and in the packages. Our thanks to all these wonderful hard-working folks!

Although the developers haven’t repeated their meeting marathon of last week – three hours! – they’re still working on getting everything lined up for Mageia 7. Between them and the QA team, the list of updates in the last week has been very impressive; 59 updates into Cauldron just this morning. As always, check the AppDB for a full list by version. Some interesting updates in the past week – as always, check Mageia Advisories for package details and CVEs.

In the flood of updates coming through for Cauldron – over 270 in the last 7 days – there has been a variety of Perl and Python packages, plus lots of kernel-related stuff; gcc and its packages are now at 7.2.2; a bunch of video driver libraries… way too many to list here.

A huge thank you to our devs and QA folk!

There’s lots of work still going on behind the scenes – wide-awake folks have noticed that Kernel 4.14.3 has made its way into Cauldron, along with loads of other goodies; the commits mailing list has been very active!

The devteam folks had a huge long meeting during the week to begin nailing down plans and features for Mageia 7; check out the meeting logs. Lots of stuff will continue to be discussed and refined for a while yet, but the process is well begun.

Here’s a selection of the additions and updates to Cauldron during the week:


There are also several perl and php packages – check out the full list. It’s also good to know what the QA team has in the pipeline – check it out on the AppDB. You’ll see updates being tested, updates ready to be pushed, and then there’s the backports.

Mageia Blog (English) : Weekly Roundup – Week 47

28 de Novembro de 2017, 1:10, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

Schultz is flat out this week, so apologies if the content of this roundup is a little sparse. I’ll do better in future!

Behind the scenes in Mageia land:

Packagers and QA are seriously busy people – so busy that they haven’t recorded an actual meeting for many months, but they’re likely to have one this week while they polish up the specs for Mageia 7. Look for updates in coming roundups. Meanwhile, much work is going on testing and validating Kernel 4.14; if that works out well enough, and the problems with the update process from Mageia 5 to Mageia 6 are ironed out, there’s a possibility we might have a Mageia 6.1 release. No promises! but watch this space.

While all that’s happening, the updates and additions are coming on in great big chunks:

* LibreOffice
* thunderbird 52.5.0 (cauldron + mga5 & mga6 testing) ,
* kernel 4.14.2 (cauldron + mga6 testing),
* virtualbox 5.2.2 (cauldron + mga6 testing),
* cinnamon 3.6.6 (cauldron),
* ocaml 4.06.0 (cauldron + update/rebuild of all ocaml stack),
* alsa 1.1.5 (cauldron),
* supertuxkart 0.9.3 (cauldron + mga6 testing),
* boost 1.65.1

…and tons of rebuilds of dependent packages (cauldron), and many, many more.

Oh, and something else nice in Cauldron: PulseEffects, which adds a nice graphic equalizer and filters and so on to PulseAudio. Still working on getting it to play nice with Plasma, but the Magicians are dealing with it.

Don’t forget that you can check out the Mageia AppDB ( at any time to see what’s being updated across all Mageia versions; you’ll see that there were lots of updates this week. Also, if you want to keep track of security updates in between roundups – particularly to check out the CVE advisories – take a look at, where you can select the Mageia version and type of update. Click on the advisory number to check out what the fix was all about.

And thank the QA team and the packagers!

See you next week!

Mageia Blog (English) : Weekly roundup 2017 – week 46

Another busy week for Cauldron, while not as many large updates, lots of other packages have seen work, as well as getting ready for future upgrades.

  • flatpak 0.10.0
  • boost 1.65.1
  • glib 0.7.4
  • chromium-browser 62
  • zsh 5.4.2
  • kmymoney4.8.1

There was also an update to PHP, so plenty of module updates and rebuilds for that and boost.

The other big update that is coming is Firefox, there is an issue with its build and our rust toolchain, but once that is sorted then Firefox 57 will be coming your way.

One other interesting discussion that will have to be resisted, most likely many more times before a full decision is made, is what to do with the 32-bit media. While they are still needed for now as not everyone has access to high-speed internet for net installs and most likely they will be the ones without access to newer 64-bit hardware.Currently there are also many others who do have 64-bit hardware but for some reason still use 32-bit install. At least it seems that way from torrent statistics shared by some of our contributors. Hearing opinion on this is always useful, although this is probably something more for Mageia 8.

Mageia 6

A busy week for updates, here are some of the important ones:

  • konversation 1.7.3-1 – CVE fix
  • firefox 52.5.0-1, nss 3.28.6-1.1 & rootcerts 20171025.00-1 – CVE fixes
  • nextcloud-client 2.3.2-1 – bugfix update
  • php 5.6.32-1 – Security fix
  • cups 2.2.6-1 – bugfix update
  • flash-player-plugin – multiple CVE fixes

Mageia 5

Also some important updates for Mageia 5, here are some of them:

  • konversation 1.5.1-1.1 – CVE fix
  • firefox 52.5.0-1, nss 3.28.6-1.1 & rootcerts 20171025.00-1 – CVE fixes
  • bluez 5.28-1.2 – CVE fix
  • php 5.6.32-1 – Security fix
  • flash-player-plugin – multiple CVE fixes
