Annunciato il rilascio della nuova versione di Zorin OS, distribuzione Linux basata da Ubuntu.

The Zorin OS Team are proud to release the Zorin OS 6 Core and Ultimate, the latest version of our operating system designed for Windows users and those who are dissatisfied with the Unity and Gnome Shell offerings. At the core of Zorin OS 6 lies our new, unique desktop environment named "Zorin Desktop". We also include our innovative Zorin Look Changer which allows users to choose between the Windows 7, Windows XP and GNOME 2 graphical interfaces (in Core) as well as the Mac OS X, Unity and Windows 2000 interfaces in Zorin OS Ultimate. Zorin Desktop embraces all of the latest and greatest Open Source software and technologies such as Gtk3 and other software from the GNOME 3 software stack, all without affecting the familiarity, usability and customizability of the desktop and retaining the Compiz window manager. Along with the new desktop environment, Zorin OS 6 packs a ton of software updates: a newly redesigned Software Center, Linux Kernel version 3.2 and a load of other improvements and features. We also include our Zorin Web Browser Manager, Zorin Background Plus (Ultimate only) and other programs from our earlier versions. As Zorin OS 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04 it is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, provided with 5 years of security updates.

Rilasciata la prima alpha di Ubuntu 12.10, codename 'Quantal Quetzal'. Note di rilascio disponibili a questa pagina

Linux kernel3.4

Quantal Alpha-1 includes the 3.4.0-5.11 Ubuntu kernel which was based on the final v3.4 upstream Linux kernel. This is an update from the 3.2.0-23.36 Ubuntu kernel which shipped in Precise Pangolin 12.04 and was based on the v3.2 upstream Linux kernel. Other notable changes with the Quantal Alpha-1 kernel include the transitioning of the i386 generic-pae flavor to become the generic flavor offering, collapsing of the virtual flavor back into the generic flavor, and homogenizing the entire linux-meta package. We also see the arrival of a new highbank arm server kernel flavor.


GCC4.7

In Quantal Alpha-1, the 4.7 version of GCC is replacing the 4.6 version that was included in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

The default toolchain is now made of: GCC 4.7, binutils 2.22, eglibc 2.15, and Linaro gdb 7.4-2012.04.


Python3.0

For 12.10, we intend to ship only Python 3 with the Ubuntu desktop image, not Python 2. Alpha-1 begins this process, with the installer and some other applications ported to Python 3. There are still quite a few packages left to port, and so Python 2 and 3 are both installed for the time being.

  • 3D Support: several fixes for the Windows WDDM video driver crash
  • NAT: fixed a crash on attempt to process ICMP datagram under some circumstances (bug #10527)

  • EFI: fixed wrong SEC/PEI Core entry point calculation (bug #10531)
  • VRDP: fixed a display update problem (bug #10503)
  • Main: set the proper VM state if savestate failed for some reason (bug #6189)
  • Main: more useful error message if a medium is inaccessible
  • VBoxManage: fixed controlvm savestate if the VM is already paused

  • Guest Additions: fixed handling of custom environment variables during VBoxManage guestcontrol execute(bug #10581)
  • Windows Additions: fixed guest driver crash of VBoxSF in certain cases (4.1.10 regression, bug #10408)
  • Windows Additions: don't load the WDDM driver if 3D support is not available for Windows 8 guests to keep the guest maintainable in that case (still better to miss some features than providing a blank screen)
  • Solaris Additions: added support for X.org Server 1.11 and 1.12

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support) avrà come nome in codice "Precise Pangolin", lo ha annunciato Mark Shuttleworth sul suo blog.

Balancing all of those options, I think we have just the right mix in our designated mascot for 12.04 LTS. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Precise Pangolin.

Il rilascio di Ubuntu 12.04 LTS è previsto per aprile 2012, e sarà caratterizzato da un supporto esteso: tre anni per la versione desktop e cinque anni per la versione server. La versione finale di Ubuntu 11.10, "Oneiric Ocelot", è invece prevista per il prossimo 13 ottobre.

Rilasciato VMWare Player 4.0, software freeware con cui è possibile far eseguire immagini realizzate con VMWare. Come per VMWare Workstation 8.0 anche VMWare player 4.0 potrà girare solo su PC con processori a 64 bit. Note di rilascio a questa pagina

The hardware requirements to install this version of Workstation have changed. Workstation now requires a relatively modern 64-bit CPU.

This version of Workstation includes many hardware improvements. To try new hardware features, you must upgrade the hardware version of your virtual machine or create a new virtual machine that uses the latest virtual hardware version.

  • The display technology has been changed to provide a better experience for Unity users and users who have multiple monitors. These changes also allow you to add a projector to your laptop without restarting your virtual machine.
  • Virtual machines can now support up to 64GB of memory. The host system should have more than 64GB of memory to use this feature.
  • An HD Audio device is available for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2008, and Windows 2008 R2 guests. The HD Audio device is compatible with the RealTek ALC888 7.1 Channel High Definition Audio Codec.
  • USB 3.0 support is available for Linux guests running kernel version 2.6.35 or later (Ubuntu 10.10) through a new virtual xHCI USB controller. To enable this feature, add the following line to the .vmx file: usb_xhci.present = "true". Do not enable this feature for Windows guests. Because Windows does not currently have a generic xHCI driver, this feature will not work in Windows.
  • Bluetooth devices on the host can now be shared with Windows guests. With the latest hardware version, Bluetooth devices that are paired to the host system radio are available to Windows guests and can be paired from within the guest. You should not pair Bluetooth audio devices, such as headphones, or Bluetooth input devices, such as keyboards and mice, to a guest.

Il download di VMWare Player è possibile da questa pagina (è necessario essere registrati).
