Ubuntu Linux uncertainty continues as Canonical CEO walks away

Ubuntu is in a very weird and uncertain place right now. If you have been following the Linux distribution lately, you would know that Canonical dropped some bombshell news that it was killing the Unity desktop environment, along with its tablet, phone, and convergence plans. This was shocking, as the company sunk a lot of resources into these things, and now it looks like all that time and money was wasted. Then, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth insulted the free software community, going so far as to compare the hatred towards Mir to the gun control debate. Now today, following rumors and speculation, Canonical… [Continue Reading]

RAGrid: Powerful intrinsic pure CSS flexbox grid

The way we talk about the grid in our teams, should be the same way we code the grid. Forget xs-col-5 or IbBox W(1/3) or whatever is in fashion, let’s use the same speak we do with people, with our machines.This grid is a bit different though, in that it seeks to allow contents to decide their own size by default. Most grids are explicit about widths, and the content must block level fill the space. With RAGrid, you distribute and align the items which manage their own size. If this doesn’t make sense, here’s some reading on intrinsic and extrinsic CSS, and I suggest you resize your browser while looking at an example to see just how different this grid is.tldr;Columns and rows are intrinsicly sized by default, so they rag and flow like typography (RAGrid.. get it..)It follows the Adobe/Sketch align tool jargonLayout is described via attributes &

Blender 2.79: OpenCL on par with CUDA

From BlenderWiki

Cycles has a split OpenCL kernel since Blender release 2.75. It’s an alternative approach to what is used on CPU (so called megakernel). The idea behind splitting the kernel is to have multiple smaller kernels which are not only simpler and faster to compile, but also have better performance. Initial split kernel patch was done by AMD. Further work was also funded by AMD.
The OpenCL Split Kernel now supports nearly all features. Only Correlated multi jitter is missing. Baking works, but uses the mega kernel. Volumetrics, SSS, Branched path tracing, HDR lightning and Denoising are fully supported.
With current drivers, all production files from the official cycles benchmark pack, including the huge one from Gooseberry, render now pretty fast.

Activate OpenCL rendering
For AMD cards on Windows and Linux you just need to select your GPU under file -> user preferences -> system. The split kernel will be used
