A couple of weeks ago I moved my Wordpress blogs from a trivial shared hosting to a more sophisticated VPS running CentOS 7 since I was in search of more flexibility from my server. During these days, I learned a lot about managing a web server on my own and I'm still currently learning a ton of interesting things about this topic.
Some time ago, I had a problem with formatting my 32 GB MicroSD card using BerryBoot, a tool useful for installing multiple operative systems on a RaspBerry Pi. Everytime I tried to format my MicroSD card, the BerryBoot tool displayed me the following error:
I'm glad to announce that Converseen 0.9.6 now supports ImageMagick 7, the newest branch of the open-souce image manipulation suite. Converseen is an open-source batch image processor for Linux and Windows, developed by me, that allows the user to apply automatically some operations on large groups of images. As instance, you can manage to resize, compress and change the format of a bunch of images before using them in your web pages.
After a very long time followed by a ton of delays, yesterday finally we had, surprisingly, the long awaited Android Marshmallow update for our beloved (or, at least, I think so) Asus Zenfone 2. As a Zenfone 2 user, I was personally waiting for this update since I'm one of the few people on this world who have had no problems with this device in 13 months of usage.
During the last weeks I worked on the Qt5 porting of my open source project Converseen, a cross-platform batch conversion and image processor tool, thanks to the help of rezso, an user from GitHub who sent me some patches with a lot of useful changes that enabled the project to be compiled with Qt5.
I was thinking it was a good idea to bring back my blog from oblivion. Unfortunately, during the past 12-15 months, I had been unable to write new contents because I was engaged on other projects. I have to say, blogging is not a vital activity for me. Anyway, sometimes, I love sharing informations or interesting posts on the internet and my preferred method to do this is using a blog rather than social network pages.
Great news for Arch Linux users! From a few minutes, Kde Plasma 5.3 stable packages are officially available on Arch Linux repositories.
A few days ago, Microsoft released Microsoft Visual Studio Code, a new development tool for Windows, Linux and Mac OS, mostly focused on web development (ASP.NET and Node.JS) even if, it has a base support for the most used languages as HTML, CSS, C# or TypeScript.
Today May 1, has been released a new installation image of Arch Linux, our favorite Linux distribution! Arch Linux 2015.05.01 includes the updates released during April 2015 and the Linux kernel 4.0.1.
As said in the previous post, today, the Kde team released Plasma 5.3 which come with a lot of interesting features. Plasma 5 is the desktop environment of the Kde project and we can certainly say that its development is a source of interest for a big chunk of Linux users since, at the moment, it is found to be at the center of very important changes.
