Google is developing an OS called “Fuchsia,” runs on All the Things (Android Police)

Linux Weekly News - h, 2016-08-15 21:22
Android Police takes a look at a new OS from Google. "Enter “Fuchsia.” Google’s own description for it on the project’s GitHub page is simply, “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)”. Not very revealing, is it? When you begin to dig deeper into Fuchsia’s documentation, everything starts to make a little more sense. First, there’s the Magenta kernel based on the ‘LittleKernel’ project. Just like with Linux and Android, the Magenta kernel powers the larger Fuchsia operating system. Magenta is being designed as a competitor to commercial embedded OSes, such as FreeRTOS or ThreadX." Fuchsia also uses the Flutter user interface, the Dart programming language, and Escher, "a renderer that supports light diffusion, soft shadows, and other visual effects, with OpenGL or Vulkan under the hood".

Kernel prepatch 4.8-rc2

Linux Weekly News - h, 2016-08-15 14:46
The second 4.8 prepatch has been released. Linus says: "Nothing really strange seems to be going on, so please just go out and test it and report any problems you encounter. It's obviously fairly early in the rc series, but I don't think there was anything particularly worrisome this merge window, so don't be shy."
