Windows Server Support Comes to Kubernetes

Editor’s note: this post is part of a series of in-depth articles on what’s new in Kubernetes 1.5
Extending on the theme of giving users choice, Kubernetes 1.5 release includes the support for Windows Servers. WIth more than 80% of enterprise apps running Java on Linux or .Net on Windows, Kubernetes is previewing capabilities that extends its reach to the mass majority of enterprise workloads. 
The new Kubernetes Windows Server 2016 and Windows Container support includes public preview with the following features:Containerized Multiplatform Applications – Applications developed in operating system neutral languages like Go and .NET Core were previously impossible to orchestrate between Linux and Windows. Now, with support for Windows Server 2016 in Kubernetes, such applications can be deployed on both Windows Server as well as Linux, giving the developer choice of the operating system runtime. This capability has been desired by customers for almost two decades. 
Support for Both Windows Server

OpenJDK now available for Windows

We are pleased to announce the availability of OpenJDK 8 for Windows.
OpenJDK is a fully open-source implementation of the Java SE specification. It is comparable in performance to Oracle and IBM JDKs.
Red Hat distributes and fully supports OpenJDK in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7, for use with all Java applications. Red Hat has also taken on the role of supporting OpenJDK beyond the public EOL, and is the global maintainer forOpenJDK 6 and 7.
Starting with OpenJDK 8, we are now making available Windows builds intended for development of Middleware applications with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. The Windows OpenJDK 8 builds provided by Red Hat are fully compatible with their counterpart RHEL releases, which means that you can be assured that your application behavior will not change when you develop and test on Windows with our OpenJDK build, then deploy the application on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Download OpenJDK for Windows here.

Raspberry Pi’s Linux-Based PIXEL Desktop Now Available For PC and Mac

From a report on BetaNews: If you own a Raspberry Pi, you’re probably familiar with PIXEL. The desktop environment is included in the Raspbian OS. The Raspberry Pi Foundation describes PIXEL as the “GNU/Linux we would want to use” and understandably so. It offers a smart, clean interface, a decent selection of software, the Chromium web browser with plug-ins, and more — and from today it’s available for PC and Mac. The version of Debian+PIXEL for x86 platforms is described as “experimental” but having taken it for a spin, it seems pretty stable to me. To run PIXEL on your PC or Mac, download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB memory stick, and boot from it. The desktop environment will load ready for use.

GitLab 8.15 Released

With this last release of the year, we’re not only completing our Master Plan, but we want to show you something cool we’ve been working on: With GitLab 8.15, we’re introducing Auto Deploy (shown in the video at 1:42), which automates setting up deploys and review apps. For a Ruby on Rails project, this brings setup time to under a minute. Plus, to make accessing your environments easier and faster, you can now access them directly through a terminal in GitLab (shown in the video at 5:18). We want to give the power of containers, continuous integration and deployment, review apps and container schedulers to everyone. With GitLab 8.15, we take away all the hard work without hiding anything. In the demonstration we setup and deploy a Ruby application with review apps, multiple environments, chatops to a Kubernetes cluster in about 12 minutes. This typically takes days, if not weeks
