Sebastian Kügler covers a meeting of the Plasma team. "The developers laid out the plans for an eventual release of Plasma Workspaces 2, based on KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt5. Wayland is also part of this plan. Starting with Plasma Worskpaces 2, Wayland will join X11 as a supported windowing environment, and all new development is taking this into consideration. Wayland is a replacement for most of the functionality which is today offered by Xorg. Wayland simplifies the graphics stack significantly with the goal of making every frame shown on screen perfect, something that is hard to achieve reliably with X11. Wayland's leaner graphics stack and improved security model also make it more appropriate for use on modern devices. As such, it is widely seen as the successor to X11 in the Free software ecosystem. Most of the gruntwork needed for this transition is already offered in Qt, however, there are still quite some X11-dependent code pathes in the KDE Frameworks, especially in KWin and the Oxygen widget style. While KWin is making excellent progress towards being able to be used as Wayland compositor, the future of the Oxygen widget style is still an unsolved problem."

The 2013 Linux Filesystem, Storage, and Memory Management Summit was held April 18 and 19 in San Francisco, California, immediately after the Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit. The first set of notes from that gathering is now available; at this point, we have most of the plenary sessions and the entire memory management track written up. The rest of our notes from the Summit will be added in the near future.
The Free Software Foundation Europe reports that the German Parliament has adopted a joint motion against software patents. "In the resolution, the Parliament says that patents on software restrict developers from exercising their copyright privileges, including the right to distribute their programs as Free Software. Patents help to create monopolies in the software market, and hurt innovation and job creation. The Parliament calls on the German government to make sure that Free Software development is not restricted by patents."
Debian has updated tinc (code execution).
At his blog, Luis Villa muses on the topic of RSS and what can be learned from Google's decision to kill Google Reader. Villa contends that "the widely perceived failure of RSS is not really a failure of RSS, but rather a failure of the user experience of discovering and subscribing to RSS." In other words, Mozilla and other browser vendors have dropped the ball by not treating feeds as "a first-class web citizen," which helps walled-in, proprietary solutions like Facebook and Twitter. Solving the problem is not simple, he admits, but he does float the idea that browsers "provide a minimum viable product for light web users – possibly by supplementing the current 'here are your favorite sites' links with a clean, light reader focused on only the current top headlines."
The Fedora 19 alpha release is available for testers. "We need your help to make Fedora 19 the best release yet, so please take a moment of your time to download and try out the Alpha and make sure the things that are important to you are working." There is a lot of new stuff in this release; see the announcement for an overview.
Debian has updated curl (cookie information disclosure).
Mandriva has updated libarchive (denial of service).
Slackware has updated xorg-server (information disclosure).
The 3.9-rc8 prepatch is out. "Yes, I was really hoping (and originally planning) to release 3.9 final this weekend, but we had enough issues that I just didn't feel comfy about it. It was borderline, and none of the issues were huge, and maybe I could have called this just 3.9 and opened the merge window, but hey, another week won't hurt."
Since the demise of core memory, there has been a fundamental dichotomy in data storage technology: memory is either fast and ephemeral, or slow and persistent. The situation is changing, though, and that leads to some interesting challenges for the Linux kernel. How will we adapt to the coming world where nonvolatile memory (NVM) devices are commonplace? Ric Wheeler led a session at the 2013 Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit to discuss this issue.
Oracle has updated java-1.7.0-openjdk (multiple vulnerabilities).
Andrew "bunnie" Huang dissects a Chinese phone. "However, if you know a bit of Chinese, and know the right websites to go to, you can download schematics, board layouts, and software utilities for something rather similar to this phone…”for free”. I could, in theory, at this point attempt to build a version of this phone for myself, with minimal cash investment. It feels like open-source, but it’s not: it’s a different kind of open ecosystem." (Thanks to Paul Wise)

The (hopefully) final update for the Debian Wheezy release has gone out; the current plan is to release on May 4 or 5. "The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend (e.g. a required machine crashes or d-i explodes in a giant ball of fire)."
The LWN.net Weekly Edition for April 18, 2013 is available.
Rust, the new programming language being developed by the Mozilla project, has a number of interesting features. One that stands out is the focus on safety. There are clear attempts to increase the range of errors that the compiler can detect and prevent, and thereby reduce the number of errors that end up in production code.
Click below (subscribers only) for an overview of the Rust language by LWN contributor Neil Brown.

Ubuntu has updated samba (12.04 LTS: multiple vulnerabilities).
David Faure has posted a terse report from the free desktop summit held April 8 in Nuremberg. "Perhaps most importantly we have come to agreement on a plan for improving the maintenance of freedesktop specifications going forward. One representative from each of GNOME, KDE and Unity will form a joint maintainer team. This team will monitor and participate in conversations on the xdg list and decide when consensus has been reached. The intention is to revive the usefulness of the xdg list as the primary point of communication between desktop projects."
Given Eben Moglen's long association with the Free Software Foundation, his work on drafting the GPLv3, and his role as President and Executive Director of the Software Freedom Law Center, his talk at the 2013 Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop promised to be thought-provoking. He chose to focus on two topics that he saw as particularly relevant for the free software ecosystem within the next five years: patents and the decline of copyleft licenses.

Nálunk rendszeresen van ISO audit és rendszeradminként ...
nekem is van munkám vele.

nálunk nincs minőségirányítási rendszer bevezetve.
mi az az ISO audit?
