Wine 2.0 released

The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 2.0
is now available.

This release represents over a year of development effort and around
6,600 individual changes. The main highlights are the support for
Microsoft Office 2013, and the 64-bit support on macOS.

It also contains a lot of improvements across the board, as well as
support for many new applications and games. See the release notes
below for a summary of the major changes.

This is the first release made on the new time-based, annual release
schedule. This implies that some features that are being worked on but
couldn’t be finished in time have been deferred to the next
development cycle. This includes in particular the Direct3D command
stream, the full HID support, the Android graphics driver, and
message-mode pipes.

Intel’s Arches Canyon NUC

Back in 2015 Intel released the Grass Canyon NUC, model NUC5PGYH, as their first complete NUC-based system. It included on-board storage (via eMMC), RAM, and came pre-installed with Windows 10 Home.  When I reviewed it, I found it a nice little entry-level system with a “good enough” Pentium processor. What I didn’t like about it was the small 32GB of storage. For a Windows system, 32GB for the OS just didn’t seem enough. Also, 2GB of RAM, while functional, didn’t leave much room for running multiple apps at once.
Intel’s new Arches Canyon, model NUC6CAYS, is the successor to the Grass Canyon.  It continues the concept of an “out-of-the box” NUC system.  Arches Canyon adds some nice new features.  Larger storage isn’t one of them, sadly. But it does show improvements in other areas.

I thought the best way to explain some of the differences between Grass Canyon and Arches Canyon was to

Show HN: Invite friends to SSH into your laptop using their GitHub handle

Instant SSH Everywhere

Wouldn’t it be great to allow a fellow developer to quickly and securely SSH into
your laptop when you’re in the middle of a debugging session even if you are on two
separate networks behind NAT?

A few months ago we released a free tool, Teleconsole, we built so we
could do exactly that. We are a distributed team, with bare metal servers sitting in our San Francisco
office, several AWS and Azure regions and a bunch of customer environments we are sometimes asked to
jump into.

Teleconsole makes it really easy to share a session: the inviting
party simply types the following into the terminal on any UNIX machine:

$ teleconsole

Which produces something like:

Your Teleconsole ID: 02f8cf345e9f00c1ee498ce410e8a2d10fb8a512
WebUI for this session:

Then you can just share the Teleconsole ID to invite someone and they just have to type
the following to jump into your session:

$ teleconsole join
