The Document Foundation Announces LibreOffice 3.6.3  View Printable Version 
Friday, November 02 2012 @ 06:16 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsBerlin, November 1, 2012 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.6.3, for Windows, MacOS and Linux. This new release is another step forward in the process of improving the overall quality and stability for any kind of deployment, on personal desktops or inside organizations and companies of any size.

LibreOffice has quickly become the de facto standard for migrations to free office suites, thanks to the growing feature set and the improved interoperability with proprietary software. Instrumental for the overall progress is the growing developer base, which has just reached the number of 550 since the launch of the project, making LibreOffice one of the fastest growing free software projects of the decade.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThere’s a new GNU/Linux distro designed to help you in every aspect of your mobile forensics, mobile malware analysis, reverse engineering and security testing. It’s called Santoku Linux. Santoku is a general purpose kitchen knife which originated from Japan, meaning “three virtues” or “three uses”. This distribution is not from Japan, but the name was suggested by Thomas Cannon of viaForensics (who happens to be the project leader of Santoku Linux) because the distribution was crafted specifically for Mobile Forensics, Mobile Malware Analysis, and Mobile Security Testing.

Bash One-Liners Explained, Part IV: Working with history  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 13 2012 @ 06:49 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoThis is the fourth part of the Bash One-Liners Explained article series. In this part I'll teach you how to work with bash history. I'll use only the best bash practices, various bash idioms and tricks. I want to illustrate how to get various tasks done with just bash built-in commands and bash programming language constructs.

I'll break this part into several sub-parts as it's very tiring to write long articles, and I'd rather publish many short articles and make quick progress.

Monday, October 08 2012 @ 07:32 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceVivek Ranadive, CEO of Tibco, is one of the industry's big thinkers, complete with a profile in Esquire. So why would a smart guy like him dismiss open source as "fool's gold"? And why do some software vendors believe they can justify "FRAND terms" on software standards and permit patented capabilities to be inserted into software standards?
