Once it is encrypted, it can only be decrypted if the user enters his/her password. However, security researcher Gal Beniamini has discovered issues with ...

Murray Cumming: Galaxy Zoo iPhone/iPad app Friday July 1st, 2016 09:05:15 AM
A few weeks ago I finally released my iOS app for Galaxy Zoo on the Apple App Store. Now that it’s been used a bit and I’ve had the chance to fix a couple of crashes, I’m announcing it properly. I am a little afraid of harsh reviews but please try it out and  be kind. I’m still not quite as comfortable with it as I am with my Android app for Galaxy Zoo, partly because I just don’t feel at home with Objective-C and because iOS lacks something like SyncProvider. But it seems to work. I actually finished ...

Jehan Pagès: Funding a Free/Libre animation: ZeMarmot Thursday June 30th, 2016 08:55:31 PM
If you read this, you probably know ZeMarmot. If you don’t: ZeMarmot is an animation film, in digital 2D (“old” style, i.e. with hand drawings, but done digitally directly on a computer, instead of paper and paint), which we are producing (teaser visible on the webpage). Story in 2 words: it tells about an Alpine Marmot who travels around the world. Artistically, Aryeom Han is the boss, film director, storyboarder, animator, designer, you name it! She is a trained animation director, graduated in Fine ...

Alexandru Ionut Pandelea: First results Wednesday June 29th, 2016 09:26:28 PM
Not so long ago I finished my last exam and though I didn’t manage to spend as much time as I wanted on the project during my exams period, I added two modes for the batch renaming: Add Text and Replace. Add Text is appending/prepending  a string to the name and Replace replaces a string from all files selected with another.  Here is a video of how this modes work. Something else I approached until now is handling the file conflicts. When renaming multiple files, there’s a chance that one or more files ...

Arun Raghavan: Beamforming in PulseAudio Wednesday June 29th, 2016 09:08:22 AM
In case you missed it — we got PulseAudio 9.0 out the door, with the echo cancellation improvements that I wrote about. Now is probably a good time for me to make good on my promise to expand upon the subject of beamforming. As with the last post, I’d like to shout out to the wonderful folks at Aldebaran Robotics who made this work possible! Beamforming Beamforming as a concept is used in various aspects of signal processing including radio waves, but I’m going to be talking about it only as applied ...

La Mapería It is Hack Week at SUSE, and I am working on La Mapería (the map store), a little program to generate beautiful printed maps from OpenStreetMap data. I've gotten to the point of having something working: the tool downloads rendered map tiles, assembles them with Cairo as a huge PDF surface, centers the map on a sheet of paper, and prints nice margins and a map scale. This was harder to me ...

Jehan Pagès: Excerpt of ZeMarmot’s Animatic Tuesday June 28th, 2016 06:55:11 PM
We made the choice from the start about ZeMarmot animation film to not show too much during production process because we don’t want to totally spoil the fun. By the past, I already had the case where I saw a movie animatic before the finale movie, and it really spoiled some fun out of the finale artworks. But since we realize that you’d all would like to see some of what is happening “behind the stage”, here is a small excerpt of our animatic for the pilote (about 30 secs off the first scene). As usually, ...

Jim Hall: Can't make it to GUADEC this year Monday June 27th, 2016 07:14:00 PM noreply@blogger.com (Jim Hall)
I loved attending the GNOME Users And Developers European Conference (GUADEC). I want to go back, but it's hard to get away for such a long trip.This year is especially tough. I started a new job in late December, as CIO in government. The new position comes with new responsibilities. I occasionally present in front of our Board, or to the County Manager, or to the Senior Leadership Team.This year, I have a Board presentation at work immediately before GUADEC, and a vacation with family planned immediately ...

Gabriel - Cristian Ivașcu: GSoC: Insights of my progress so far Monday June 27th, 2016 05:10:44 PM
This post may come a bit late, but I’ve been pretty much hooked to my end of semester finals over the last few weeks. However, exams are gone now so I can start focusing on my summer project. Accordingly, I’ve been working hard these last days to catch up with my timeline before the midterm. For those of you who are not aware of my project, I’m working on the Web: Session Sync project, aiming to introduce a bookmarks sync feature for Epiphany with the help of Mozilla’s servers. As I’ve mentioned ...
