Amazon developing three new sci-fi series: Lazarus, Snow Crash and Ringworld

Amazon is dramatically ramping up its production for next year, moving forward with three new high-concept series, Variety has learned. These new efforts represent a significant production investment from the studio, which is currently in preproduction, production or post on 67 TV series and 20 movies around the world.
The streaming service is developing the following:
• “Lazarus,” based on a comic book by Greg Rucka (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones”), is set in an alternative near future, where the world has been divided among 16 rival families, who run their territories in a feudal system. Each family has allies and enemies among the other families. To crush uprisings and fight wars, most families have a Lazarus: a one-person kill squad.

Rucka serves as writer and executive producer on “Lazarus,” along with Michael Lark (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Angela Cheng Caplan.
• “Snow Crash,” which is based on Neal Stephenson’s cult novel, is a one-hour science

Theano is dead

Dear users and developers,
After almost ten years of development, we have the regret to announce
that we will put an end to our Theano development after the 1.0 release,
which is due in the next few weeks. We will continue minimal maintenance
to keep it working for one year, but we will stop actively implementing
new features. Theano will continue to be available afterwards, as per
our engagement towards open source software, but MILA does not commit to
spend time on maintenance or support after that time frame.
The software ecosystem supporting deep learning research has been
evolving quickly, and has now reached a healthy state: open-source
software is the norm; a variety of frameworks are available, satisfying
needs spanning from exploring novel ideas to deploying them into
production; and strong industrial players are backing different software
stacks in a stimulating competition.
We are proud that most of the innovations Theano introduced

The 17.10 beta is available for Ubuntu / Ubuntu Server / Ubuntu Cloud as well as Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu. This is with the final 17.10 Artful release being just three weeks away.
Ubuntu 17.10 is approaching its final shape with having recently switched over to the Linux 4.13 kernel, the GNOME Shell session atop Wayland continues getting fine-tuned, and other remaining changes being made.
For those not desiring the GNOME Shell experience, Kubuntu is shipping with Plasma 5.10.5 and KDE Applications 17.04.3. They’ve also switched away from Dragonplayer as their default media player to now using VLC. They also replaced Amarok with the Cantata Qt5 music player.
More details on all of the changes for Ubuntu 17.10 Beta 2 can be found via the release announcement.

Kubernetes 1.8 released

Editor’s note: today’s post is by Aparna Sinha, Group Product Manager, Kubernetes, Google; Ihor Dvoretskyi, Developer Advocate, CNCF; Jaice Singer DuMars, Kubernetes Ambassador, Microsoft; and Caleb Miles, Technical Program Manager, CoreOS on the latest release of Kubernetes 1.8.

We’re pleased to announce the delivery of Kubernetes 1.8, our third release this year. Kubernetes 1.8 represents a snapshot of many exciting enhancements and refinements underway. In addition to functional improvements, we’re increasing project-wide focus on maturing process, formalizing architecture, and strengthening Kubernetes’ governance model. The evolution of mature processes clearly signals that sustainability is a driving concern, and helps to ensure that Kubernetes is a viable and thriving project far into the future.

Spotlight on security

Kubernetes 1.8 graduates support for role based access control (RBAC) to stable. RBAC allows cluster administrators to dynamically define roles to enforce access policies through the Kubernetes API. Beta support for filtering outbound traffic through network
