13:40 Fedora 38 release
20:36 Is Solus back?
26:22 DPaint.js Amiga editor
- Transcriptions and subtitles.
- Powered by the DaVinci Neural Engine, no cloud.
- This is handy for two things.
- Tracking down where in a video you said something and generating subtitles for the video.
- You have the options to bake the subs directly into the video, embed them, or export them separately.
- Support for voice isolation in Studio for Linux.
- Support for dialog leveler for Linux.
- You can now export a gif and that’s helpful.
- Support for decoding AC3 audio in Linux.
- Still no support for AAC because reasons.
- Same goes for adding VST support on Linux.
- Rocky Linux 8.6 based installation environment for DaVinci Resolve.
- Big upgrade from the RH 7.3 image.
- Ability to export timeline markers as MKV chapters.
- And now we get more machine learning features like audio classification, auto-subtitles, and transcript text-based editing.
Fedorf 38 (Pedro)
- A week ahead of schedule, Fedora Linux 38 has been released!
- There is a new Fedora Budgie Spin to enjoy the Budgie Desktop.
- We now have KDE, Cinnamon, Sway, and Budgie.
- And a new Sway Spin to use the Sway window manager that uses Wayland, and aims to be a drop-in replacement for the i3 window manager.
- Fedora Workstation features the latest GNOME 44 release which includes a lot of great improvements, including a new lock screen, a “background apps” section on the quick menu, and improvements to accessibility settings.
- In addition, enabling third-party repositories now enables an unfiltered view of applications on Flathub.
- This will give users full access to Flathub’s content, including proprietary apps.
- You can go download the latest Fedora 38 ISOs now, and enjoy the new look of the website.
- As always, you should make sure your system is fully up-to-date before upgrading from a previous release.
- I upgraded to Fedora 38 on my Fedora box, and it went smoothly as usual.
- And, as with previous releases, I love the new wallpaper for Fedora 38.
- This one has white puffy clouds in a soft blue sky overlooking a green landscape.
- If you like a vanilla GNOME 44 experience, then Fedora 38 has you covered.
- Linux Kernel 6.2 ships with full support for Intel Arc, the new nouveau, and support for Sony Playstation controllers.
- All in all it’s another solid release from the Fedora team.
- I’m more interested in what comes of the Universal Blue project RTheren dropped in the notes.
- It’s turning Fedora into a Chromebook desktop OS… thingy.
- Solus was the hot new distro a couple of years ago.
- Unfortunately the last release was quite some time ago. 2021?
- Development during 2023 has been nonexistent and Distrowatch has marked the disto dormant.
- Even the subreddit is full of people wondering what has been going on.
- Short story long, in January the “Solus infrastructure suffered a hardware-level issue that caused a service outage”.
- Long story short.
- Ikey stepped in and offered them some infrastructure.
- They will rebase Soluos on Serpent OS.
- They wrap things up with plans for the future but that’s what they are, plans.
- See if they manage to execute and if the interest is still there.
- DPaint.js is a fast web based image editor modeled after the legendary Deluxe Paint with a focus on retro Amiga file formats.
- It is a fully featured image editor, and supports png image, Amiga IFF and Amiga icon formats, and its own DPaint.JSON file formats.
- Adobe .psd support is coming soon.
- I was really impressed with how fast and flexible DPaint.js is.
- It lives in the world between the more advanced web based Photopea, that is an alternative to photoshop, and other simpler web based drawing programs.
- It is unique in that it has support for layers, masking and other effects and filters.
- And you don’t have to create an account to use it!
- Thank you Mfoxdogg for bringing this to our attention.
- Cool, thank you for the fun question.
- Well, I have well over 600 computers now in my computer collection, both vintage and new, and a lot of them I use for gaming.
- So I still sometimes use my C64, C128, and one of my 486s for gaming.
- And I use one of my older Pentium 4 computers with a 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 16MB AGP 2D/3D accelerator video card for gaming!
- But as far as the oldest gaming hardware I use regularly in or on my modern gaming rigs:
- A Super NES game controller!
- Ruffle is an Adobe Flash Player emulator written in Rust that we talked about several weeks ago, on LWDW368.
- Sythowl, thanks for letting us know!
- And reminding me about Kongregate.com!
- I still have my account on Kongregate from ages ago, and a few of my favorite games are on there, and they were Flash based :-)
- Sushi Cat 2 from 2011 was one of them:
- And 3D Logic from 2007:
