This is very appealing to me.  Would be nice if I could convince +daniel wehner to tag-team program with me.  It would also be awesome to live in the same timezone as Daniel.

Once again, DrupalOnWindows.com breaks down a complicated Drupal topic and provides useful info for your Drupal experts on how to make their sites better.

Really impressed with that site.

I've come to realize that I'm waaaay late to the party on this one.  But PhpMetrics is awesome.

http://www.phpmetrics.org/

It can produce very pretty charts of your php codebase and may be a good place to start when you're trying to figure out "what's wrong with this code base?"
PhpMetrics is a quality tool for PHP. It provide beautiful reports about Maintenability, Complexity, Difficulty... of your code.

Already created an issue for including it into Drupal 8.  We're currently using 4.4.7

https://www.drupal.org/node/2521810
 
We are happy to announce the most awaited release of CKEditor 4.5, the next major editor version that introduces an entire spectrum of amazing new features and improvements and is the biggest release since CKEditor 4.0.

I brought these concerns to Google I/O when I went this year.  And though I felt like a jerk bringing it up during the office hours, it was well received.

Most of the chrome devs use Macs or linux after all.  They were well aware of the pain.  

So excited to hear of this progress for my fellow Nerds at +The Nerdery 
 
One of the big complaints about Chrome currently is that it's a battery hog, especially on Mac where Safari seems to do better.

The team has been working on addressing this; here are some cases that have recently been improved on trunk:

http://crbug.com/460102

Before: Renderers for background tabs had the same priority as for foreground tabs.
Now: Renderers for background tabs get a lower priority, reducing idle wakeups on various perf test, in some cases by significant amounts (e.g. 50% on one test).

http://crbug.com/485371

Before: On a Google search results page, using Safari's user agent to get the same content that Safari would, Chrome incurs ~390 wakes over 30s and 0.3% CPU usage vs. Safari’s 120 wakes over 30s and 0.1% CPU usage.
Now: 66% reduction in both timer firings and CPU use. Chrome is now incurring ~120 wakes over 30s and 0.1% CPU use, on par with Safari.

http://crbug.com/489936

Before: On capitalone.com, Chromium incurs ~1010 wakeups over 30s vs. Safari's ~490 wakes.
Now: ~30% reduction in timer firings. Chrome is now incurring ~721 wakeups over 30s.

http://crbug.com/493350

Before: On amazon.com, Chromium incurs 768 wakups over 30s and consumes ~0.7% CPU vs. Safari's 312 wakes over 30s and ~0.1% CPU.
Now: ~59% reduction in timer firings and ~70% reduction in CPU use. Chrome is now incurring ~316 wakeups over 30s, and 0.2% CPU use, on par with Safari at 312 wakes, and 0.1% CPU use.

The Chrome team has no intention of sitting idly by (pun intended) when our users are suffering.  You should expect us to continually improve in this area.

Thanks +Lucas Hedding for pointing out another huge issue that got committed.  This time for the Redirect module.

The redirect module sometimes created circular references while trying to be helpful for content that already had redirects setup.  

You should put this module on your update plan

Android M's battery dose is a game changer

I had my tablet in my bag this week and had a solid week of forgetting to bring it to work. When I picked up my tablet after leaving it on that whole week I expected that it would be dead. Instead it had nearly 70% of its power still.

Then I became curious about how long it would last if left alone, 23 more days. Which means with optimal conditions Android M can make your tablet last a month in battery.

That's amazing.
