Flatcar Linux, a Container Linux fork, is ready for production

by Chris Kuehl on Mon, Apr 30, 2018

A few weeks ago we announced Flatcar Linux, our effort to create a commercially supported fork of CoreOS’ container Linux. You can find the reasoning for the fork in our FAQ.

Since then we’ve been testing, improving our build process, establishing security procedures, and talking to testers about their experiences. We are now satisfied that Flatcar Linux is a stable and reliable container operating system that can be used in production clusters.

Open to the public

Thus, today we are ready to open Flatcar Linux to the public. Thanks to our testers for testing and providing feedback. We look forward to more feedback and community feedback now that Flatcar is more widely available.

For information about release and signing keys, please see the new Releases and the image signing key pages.

USB 3.2 Work Is On The Way For The Linux 4.18 Kernel: Report

An anonymous reader shares a report: USB 3.2 was announced last summer as an incremental update to the USB standard to double the bandwidth for existing USB Type-C cables. We haven’t seen much in the way of USB 3.2 mentions in the Linux kernel yet but then again we haven’t really seen USB 3.2 devices yet. USB 3.2 brings a multi-lane operation mode for hosts and devices using existing Type-C cables as well as a minor update to the USB hub specification. USB 3.2 allows for new 10 Gbit/s and 20 Gbit/s rates using two lanes, USB 3.2 Gen 1×2 and USB 3.2 Gen 2×2, respectively. It looks like kernel developers are now working on getting their USB 3.2 Linux support in order. We were tipped off that as of last week there are some USB 3.2 patches queued in the usb-next tree maintained by Greg Kroah-Hartman’s.

Text Summarization in Python: Extractive vs. Abstractive

This blog is a gentle introduction to text summarization and can serve as a practical summary of the current landscape. It describes how we, a team of three students in the RaRe Incubator programme, have experimented with existing algorithms and Python tools in this domain.
We compare modern extractive methods like LexRank, LSA, Luhn and Gensim’s existing TextRank summarization module on the Opinosis dataset of 51 article-summary pairs. We also had a try with an abstractive technique using Tensorflow’s Text Summarization algorithm, but didn’t obtain good results due to its extremely high hardware demands (7000 GPU hours, ~$30k cloud credits).

With push notifications and article digests gaining more and more traction, the task of generating intelligent and accurate summaries for long pieces of text has become a popular research as well as industry problem.
There are two fundamental approaches to text summarization: extractive and abstractive. The former extracts words and word phrases from

Windows 10 April 2018 update: Key enterprise features

At long last, Microsoft has begun rolling out its spring update for Windows 10, version 1803. Following the six-month release cycle of previous feature updates, including the Creators Update in April 2017 and the Fall Creators Update in October 2017, version 1803 was expected in late March or early April 2018; however, the late discovery of a serious bug delayed the release until April 30. Coded-named Redstone 4, the new release is called, imaginatively, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story)
