Yesssss. :D Is it weird that I'm just as excited about people using the names I gave the wallpapers as I am about people using the wallpapers?   #designerproblems

sounds interesting, will have to check it out
 
Earlier today I've released guacamole 0.8. Guacamole is a new library for writing command line applications. It's been in undercover weekend development for some weeks now (and has gone through many iterations).

Guacamole is an offspring of the plainbox codebase but it has only spiritual connections at this point. It's modular, much cleaner and supports Python 2.7 and 3.2+. The key concept behind modularity is that of Ingredients. Ingredients are a plug-in or add-on system similar to Django middleware. Guacamole comes with a few ingredients and recipes for making simple applications.

I have a few more ingredients in the works, just catch-up work for feature parity with the plainbox counterparts. The big things come after that.

I want to add support for guacamole telemetry. That is, collect and send anonymous application statistics to a central server. Those statistics can include platform information, application start-up time, crash reports and more. Obviously all of this is under the control of application author and users alike.

One last thing I'm aiming at is cross-platform portability. Guacamole is written in pure python and works on Windows and OS X. There are several ingredients that will understand platform-specific features so that app developers don't have to worry about that.

If you are writing command line applications have a look at Guacamole. It's a new kid on the block, not as mature as other systems (e.g. click) but I think the architecture is right and I'm keen on improving it to fit my needs. You can also make it fit yours. You can create your own private ingredients or you can contribute a new ingredient back to the core.

Enjoy!

Another round of candidate ISOs for testing.

#ubuntu-release is the place to be on IRC.
Select an image. Desktop image. The desktop image allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of image is what most people will want to use. You will need at least 384MiB of RAM to install from this image.

+Andrew Wilson - unfortunately, you can't directly upgrade from 14.04 to 15.04. If you're on 14.04 now, you may just want to stay there for now. And if you move to 15.04, a fresh install is probably the best route.

The one place where we definitely recommend 15.04 is if you're using Broadwell hardware (like our new Meekat and Lemur). Otherwise, you probably want to stay on 14.04 for another month or so till the dust settles :)

Big shoutout to +Martin Pitt for all his hard work on the Vivid Upstart to systemd transition. It's gone as smoothly as it has because Martin (and others) put in over a year of prep work, and where there have been issues, he's always been quick to address them. Thanks!

I know it'll be a controversial move, but I like it a lot. I use systemd on a few other distros, and think it's the bees knees.

Vivid is readying for Lift Off!

We're in the final stretch now! April 23rd will be the release date for vivid. With that in mind I would encourage everyone to prepare for testing the final images. The final image milestone should be created this Friday April 17th in preparation. The release team will continue testing and iterating on this image until release. Please plan to test this image and take part in verifying it for release. While you are testing, don't forget about your favorite flavors of ubuntu who can also use your help and testing expertise. Thanks and happy testing!

Introduction
I'm a Product Engineer at System76, makers of fine Ubuntu computers.

I'm also the lead developer for the Novacut collaborative video editor (think Google docs for video editing).

Novacut is built on Dmedia, a specialized distributed object store aimed at professional content creation. Dmedia is the foundation of Novacut's real-time collaboration, and can likewise be the foundation for similar apps.

If you'd like help adding Dmedia integration to an existing app, or building a new app atop the Dmedia platform, please don't hesitate to ask!
