Microsoft Introduces GVFS (Git Virtual File System)

Saeed Noursalehi, principal program manager at Microsoft, writes on a blog post: We’ve been working hard on a solution that allows the Git client to scale to repos of any size. Today, we’re introducing GVFS (Git Virtual File System), which virtualizes the file system beneath your repo and makes it appear as though all the files in your repo are present, but in reality only downloads a file the first time it is opened. GVFS also actively manages how much of the repo Git has to consider in operations like checkout and status, since any file that has not been hydrated can be safely ignored. And because we do this all at the file system level, your IDEs and build tools don’t need to change at all! In a repo that is this large, no developer builds the entire source tree.

What’s New in LibreOffice 5.3

Open source’s premiere office suite keeps getting better with each new release. Here’s a look at some of the new features in LibreOffice 5.3.

Come and ask me any questions you have about the software, too. We offer LibreOffice here on our public computers because the library is confident it will meet people’s needs.”
