Understandably, software developers might wonder how a bunch of historians ended up shepherding an open source content management system into the world, but in the case of Omeka the trajectory is a logical one that stems from years of work in open access public history and cultural heritage projects.Omeka is a leading open source collections-based web publishing platform for cultural heritage institutions, researchers, scholars, and students, developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) and the growing open source developer community it supports. It is released under the GPLv 3.0 license.

As a systems librarian at an academic institution, I am a conduit between those who want to access the resources our library offers and my colleagues who describe the resources on behalf of researchers. I direct our limited development resources so that our systems can best meet the needs of all of our users. In their paper, Schwarz and Takhteyev claim that software freedom makes "it possible for the modifications to be done by those actors who have the best information about their value [and] are best equipped to carry them out."Evergreen, as an open source library system, enables me to invest my time so that my work benefits not only our institution, but all other Evergreen-using institutions when I offer my local work to the project as a whole. This focus on the improvement of the project as a whole, rather than site-specific enhancements, is a broadly shared principle of our development community.

The SMART-MEN, or officially SBC-SMART-MEN, is a variation on the SMART-BEE announced by Embedian last month. The main difference is a lack of real-world ports except for an SD slot and dual Fast Ethernet ports, and the inclusion of additional USB and serial interfaces. The board expresses most of its I/O like a computer-on-module, via a pair of expansion connectors.

We just released Grml 2014.03 - Ponywagon. This Grml release provides fresh software packages from Debian testing (a.k.a. jessie). As usual it also incorporates up2date hardware support and fixes known bugs from the previous Grml release. New features: new boot option vlan; grml-debootstrap. Important Changes: forensic mode - the readonly boot option was renamed to read-only (caused by change in upstream's live-boot).

In recent years, Freescale Semiconductor’s i.MX6, one of the most popular ARM SoCs among embedded Linux developers, has been increasingly used in automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. Soon, a new “expanded” version of the Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 should find even greater favor among automotive equipment manufacturers thanks to an integrated Cortex-M4 microcontroller that offers greater real-time response. The new i.MX6 is the first to combine Cortex-A9 and Cortex-M4 cores, according to the chipmaker.

Back in 2007, Red Hat did in fact first attempt to become a reseller for its partners' technologies with the Red Hat Exchange (RHX) effort. RHX, however, was closed down by 2010 as a failed effort. Badani said there were some lessons learned from the RHX experience, but more importantly, the software world has changed dramatically since 2007.
