Announcing the Qt Automotive Suite

Today we announce the launch of the first generation of the Qt Automotive Suite.
The idea for the Qt Automotive Suite was born when The Qt Company, Pelagicore and KDAB sat down and shared their experiences of projects using Qt for In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI). With cumulative experience from over 20 automotive projects it was noted how Qt is really well suited to the needs of building IVIs and Instrument Clusters, that there were already millions of vehicles on the road with Qt inside, and that there were a lot of ongoing projects. There was though a feeling that things could be even better, that there were still a few things holding back the industry, contributing to the sense that shipped IVI systems could be built faster, cheaper and with a higher quality.
One observation was that additional infrastructure components and tooling were being created. While it is great to see software being

Google To Deprecate SSLv3, RC4 in Gmail IMAP/POP Clients

Michael Mimoso, reporting for Threatpost: Google said that it will initiate on June 16 a gradual deprecation of SSLv3 and RC4 for Gmail IMAP/POP mail clients. Both the crypto protocols cipher are notoriously unsafe and are being phased out in big chunks of the Internet. Google, for its part, had already announced in May that it would no longer support SSLv3 and RC4 connections for Gmail SMTP. Google does note that most mail clients already default to safer TLS connections, and most will not be affected by the impending changes.”Unlike Gmail SMTP, this change will be rolled out as a gradual change, where it may take longer than 30 days for users to be fully restricted from connecting to Gmail from SSLv3 or RC4 connections; however, we recommend updating your clients soon in order to avoid any potential disruption,” Google said in an announcement.

Thinking Machine 6

What is happening?
The artwork is an artificial intelligence program,
ready to play chess with the viewer. If the viewer confronts
the program, the computer’s thought process is sketched on
screen as it plays. A map is created from the traces of literally
thousands of possible futures as the program tries to decide its best move.
Those traces become a key to the invisible lines of force in the game as
well as a window into the spirit of a thinking machine.

What do the images mean?
When it is your (White’s) turn to move, the chess board will
gently pulse to show the influence of the various pieces.
Each white piece causes light ripples on the squares it attacks;
black pieces, in turn, add darker ripples.
When the
machine (Black) is thinking, a network of curves is overlaid on the board.
The curves show potential moves—often
several turns in the future—considered by the computer. Orange curves
are moves by

Google’s AI ‘TensorFlow’ Software Is Coming To iOS

An anonymous reader writes: Google published an early version of TensorFlow that adds support for iOS. TensorFlow is “neural network” software that lets computers process data in a way similar to our own brain cells. Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently said it advances machine learning capability by a factor of three generations. With the software running on your iPhone, its capabilities will allow for more sophisticated apps to run on iOS. We can expect the apps to be released later this year and into next year from Google and others who use TensorFlow. Some of the tasks TensorFlow can allow for include being able to recognize subjects in photographs or being able to teach your phone what a particular object looks like, which is what another neural network software project called MemKite aims to do. Google has released its TensorFlow software as open source, where anyone can use or modify

The rise of the Apache Foundation

The Apache Software Foundation recently released its 28-page annual report for its 2015-2016 year, but here’s the TL;DR in one word: amazing.

What started as a simple HTTP server supported by a handful of developers in 1995 has become an army of 3,425 ASF committers and 5,922 Apache code contributors building 291 top-level projects.

Of course, during this same time, open source in general has grown exponentially. But the ASF has seen particularly impressive growth as it propels big data forward with dozens of popular projects, along with dev tools and more general fare. The reason, as board member Jim Jagielski explained in an interview, is the ASF’s emphasis on neutral, community-focused development.

Not bad for an organization that costs less than $1 million to run each year — especially compared to other open source foundations that put the needs of corporate interests above those of the developer community.
First, the data
By any metric,

Where we’re at with 1999.io

Where we’re at with 1999.io
davewiner
Well, it seems 1999.io is about finished. What that means is that it appears to be stable, it can be used for what it was designed to do. There are docs for getting people started, and a home page that links to it all. Here’s the reviewer’s guide page. It says what makes 1999.io different from other blogging software like WordPress, Ghost, Tumblr, Blogger, Medium, Drupal, etc. 1999.io picks up the thread from the blogging software I started in the 90s, culminating with Radio UserLand in 2002. Lots of good ideas there that weren’t picked up by the competitors. 1999.io goes way beyond Radio, with a more powerful Edit This Page feature, liveblogging, and easy backups and mobility. The UI is better — easier to learn and use, and more flexible, inspired by Facebook and Twitter, and the immediacy of JavaScript in the browser. 1999.io pushes the state of the art in blogging.
