Enjoy the new goodies and tell us what you think :)
The Next Generation SDK. Up until now the basic architecture of the SDK IDE and tools packaging was that we have packaged and distributed the QtCreator IDE and our Ubuntu plugins as separate distro packages which strongly depend on the Qt available in the same release.

A really handy project by Intel
The Intel SuspendResume project aims to help identify delays in suspend and resume. After seeing it demonstrated by Len Brown (Intel) at this years Linux Plumbers conference I gave it a quick spin and was delighted to see how easy it is to use. The project has some excellent "getting started" ...

The code quality there is a bit terrible. I wonder if authors ever wrote anything in python before. Still, the project is interesting. I'll see if we could use it and if they would accept some contributions.

So are people using the OpenOffice trademark in ways that would require a license?  A Google search for openoffice doesn't show the libreoffice page on the first page of results.

If some linux distros are packaging the code in a way that Apache thinks infringes their trademark, why would they expect that to change where the upstream developers choose to submit their code?

And how much of a problem is the packaging?  At least on Ubuntu, the only hits for openoffice seem to be tools and add ons that claim they can work with OpenOffice documents.  No one could confuse them as passing off as being AOO.

I found it surprisingly easy to code for. Dragging and dropping code onto the device is stupidly simple. I started making my first app and was up and running near instantly.

We faced some interesting challenges when developing the Ubuntu One filesync service. Here's part 1 of the stories I have queued up to publish!
Developing and scaling Ubuntu One filesync, part 1. Now that we've open sourced the code for Ubuntu One filesync, I thoughts I'd highlight some of the interesting challenges we had while building and scaling the service to several million users. The teams that built the service were roughly ...

Wow! This really makes a significant difference to the docviewer!
 
Not really ready yet, since it still needs to be refined a bit.
Yesterday I decided to spend some hour on one of the Ubuntu DocViewer tasks that I postponed for some time.

Welcome DocViewer Thumbnailer! \o/

Went to the Kingfisher last night (Tuesday) for the first time since the refit. First waiter we had didn't know what some things on the menu were, offloaded us to another waitress. Starters arrived with no cutlery. My starter (squid) was on the 'special' list but was far from special. Overcooked to the point of being burned in places, hard, dry and not like any other squid I've ever had. I complained and it was taken away and struck off the bill. Main course some time later. Waitress ignored us for ages when we were trying to order a bottle of wine. Eventually took the order and then took ages to bring it. We were half way through our meals before the wine arrived. This is yet another crappy meal I've had in that place, each under successive new management. Worst wedding anniversary ever. Not going again.
