== LoCo News ==

 

=== Ubuntu-mx request for help ===

 

Javier shares that the Mexican LoCo was inspired by the Columbian team

and is currently undergoing a reorganization process. The team has

updated their website at ubuntumexico.org and is asking their members

to update or reactivate their launchpad membership, and has created a

list of other tasks they wish to accomplish. Javier wraps up by

explaining the point of the post is to "announce that we're alive and

ready to rumble, and ask whoever wants to help to join us" and ask for

suggestions on some of the technical and administrative tasks related

to running the LoCo.

 

http://viajemotu.wordpress.com/2012/08/14/ubuntu-mx-request-for-help/

 

=== Time to Jam Again! ===

 

Benjamin Kerensa reminds LoCos that the 12.10 release is quickly

approaching, meaning that once again it's time to plan Ubuntu Global

Jams. The Jam, which takes place September 7th-9th, is an opportunity

for the community to work on improvements for the upcoming release.

Jams are also an opportunity to introduce LoCo members to different

aspects of the community and new ways to contribute.

 

http://benjaminkerensa.com/2012/08/16/time-to-jam-again

 

=== Ubuntu Jam AT Nijmegen, the Netherlands ===

 

Rachid BM shares plans for an upcoming Ubuntu Global Jam in Nijmegen,

the Netherlands in a schoolroom of AT Computing, and notes that the

venue provides "computers with Ubuntu installed, so that we are ready

to rock!"

 

http://rachidbm.com/2012/08/ubuntu-jam-at-nijmegen-netherlands/

 

== Launchpad News ==

 

=== New fastdowntime schedule ===

 

Robert Collins of Launchpad discusses the new, fast application of

patches over the past year using FDT (Fast Down Time). He reports the

application of "60 such patches, typically taking between 60 and 90

seconds each time, at 1000UTC, our scheduled daily 5 minute downtime

window for DB patching." Collins shares that with the removal of Slony

from their environment, they can now do even faster schema patches (6

seconds), and they'll be taking advantage of this by adding two 10

second downtime windows at 0200 UTC and 1800 UTC.

== Ubuntu Cloud News ==

 

=== Charming Hadoop ===

 

James Page dives into the details of the Hadoop charm for Ubuntu

Server's juju infrastructure. Page explains what Hadoop is, covers

some juju basics, and finally discusses how to configure and use the

Hadoop charm as well as Hadoop itself, and scale and monitor it with

juju.

=== Ubuntu TV: Ubuntu TV Weekly Update #6 ===

 

Jim Hoddap once again brings the weekly update from the Ubuntu TV

team, including:

 

* Grilo plugin for TMDB is in the queue waiting to be merged into git

repository

* The Ubuntu TV Testcard utility has been submitted for inclusion in

the 12.10 repositories.

new mini icons for the Box icon theme are in progress.

=== Marco Ceppi: How's Ask Ubuntu working out for you? ===

 

In his blog, Marco Ceppi asks about the niceness of answers on the

Stack Overflow site, which hosts Ask Ubuntu. Pointing out the

perennial problem of quality versus quantity, he acknowledges that the

larger a community grows, the greater the loss of quality. As the

original dedicated team moves on, he suggests the answers might get

more rude and less helpful. He then points out that a lot of work has

gone into maintaining standards, redirecting bug reports to Launchpad,

and removing rude comments considered "too snarky".

 

http://marcoceppi.com/2012/08/hows-ask-ubuntu-working-out-for-you/

 

=== Nicholas Skaggs: Quality Perceptions Survey Results ===

 

Nicholas Skaggs provides results and insight from his Quality

Perceptions Survey. Questions asked in the survey included questions

about quality itself "What does quality mean to you?" and "What's the

biggest problem with quality in Ubuntu right now?", along with

questions about using development releases and participation in the QA

team itself.

=== Pasi Lallinaho: Working on the Xubuntu documentation rewrite ===

 

Pasi Lallinaho shares progress of the Xubuntu offline documentation

rewrite. He covers the work completed thus far on a

community-maintained wiki, and explains the structure so contributors

can jump in to help. He also stresses that the writing portion of this

project needs to be completed within the next week or two.

=== Didier Roche: Quickly reboot: Q&A session wrap up! ===

 

Didier Roche shares the recording of the latest Quickly Q&A session,

where he invited the community to "ask questions about Quickly and

propose enhancement" for Quickly. He also mentions that they'll be

taking a break from these sessions and invites people to "catch up on

the session notes, and provide feedback/ideas" on the wiki:

in Quantal Quetzal's repositories. This release contains some 91 bug

fixes, including: the HUD not closing by Alt+F4 when Numlock or

Capslock are on, purchased apps not showing in the Unity launcher, and

more.

=== Canonical Showcases Desktop Linux, Inside the Browser ===

 

Christopher Tozzi reviews how the online tour of Ubuntu provides a "a

rigorous and impressively smooth" preview of Ubuntu from within a web

browser. Developed by Canonical's Web Design Team, it aims at

highlighting the desktop OS, the Unity Launcher and lens, and the

default apps - such as LibreOffice etc.

=== We Interview Leann Ogasawara, Canonical Kernel Team Manager,

Marathoner and Mother ===

Manager Leann Ogasawara about her role and work at Canonical and what

she is passionate about in life.

=== Ubuntu Icon Comes Back to GNOME Classic ===

 

Joey Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! shows off the 114KiB update to the Light

Themes package for Classic session in Ubuntu 12.04: the

reimplementation of the Ubuntu icon for the Application Menu.

=== Unity 2D No Longer Installed By Default, Removed From The Ubuntu

12.10 Quantal Quetzal Repositories ===

 

Andrew of Web Upd8 writes about Unity 2D no longer being available for

the 12.10 Quantal Quetzal release. "Furthermore, the latest Unity

package, uploaded to the Ubuntu Quantal repositories a few hours ago,

uses a "dummy" Unity-2D package, so Unity 2D is no longer available in

the repositories and won't be installable at all in Quantal. Ubuntu

users without graphical acceleration will be able to use Unity 3D

thanks to llvmpipe."

=== Why Ubuntu 12.04 is the best desktop experience the free software

community has to offer. ===

 

Neil Munro covers some of the features of Unity which make 12.04 "best

desktop experience that the FLOSS community has to offer." Munro

covers in detail the five-year support period included with LTS, the

different feel from "the usual Gnome/KDE/XFCE interfaces" and calls it

"a next generation interface." He goes on to cover many of the

features of the Unity desktop and concludes: "All these little things

add up to create a very polished, functional unique branded desktop

experience."

=== Say Hello To Unity's Newest Feature: Previews ===

 

Joey Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! shares details, screenshots, and a video

of one of Unity's newest features: Previews. "In Ubuntu 12.04 and

earlier Dash results sport a single action: open. If it's a music file

it opens in a music player; if it's a Wikipedia Lens result it opens

in your browser, etc. Previews give users more by introducing a

'right-click' action for items displayed in the lens. This action

opens a "Preview Pane" tailored for that content type."

=== Does Ubuntu Need A Separate 'eBook & Magazine' Store? ===

 

Joey Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! writes about the increasing number of

eBooks and magazines in the Ubuntu Software Center. 'Despite having

'Software' in its name, the shelves of Ubuntu's one-stop app shop are

starting to warp under the weight of so much reading material. One

could say that the name "Ubuntu Software Center" is no longer an apt

description of what is actually on offer,' states Sneddon.

=== Ubuntu 12.10 Is Faster With Intel Hardware ===

 

Michael Larabel of Phoronix shares benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs.

12.10 2012-08-13 on a CompuLab Intense-PC. He concludes that the

system "with Intel Core i7 "Ivy Bridge" processor is performing very

well with Ubuntu 12.10 and a very nice upgrade already over Ubuntu

12.04 LTS. Most of the performance boosts come from continued

optimizations on the open-source Intel graphics driver stack and the

move to the GCC 4.7 compiler. Additional performance boosts for

Nouveau/Radeon/Intel graphics may come still this cycle when moving to

Mesa 8.1/9.0."
