+David Jordan made a pluto cake
Like some of my characters, I sometimes like to have fun injecting science and engineering into everyday things! That and obscene amounts of chocolate. So I made a cake to celebrate both my birthday and the amazingness of the New Horizons mission to Pluto. Seriously, we've just seen the first new sun-orbiting world up close in over 25 years! Just one birthday cake ago Pluto was a tiny speck of light, and now it's this:

Apparently, today will be Denver's first street arcade, and it's right in front of our office on 16th street mall!

From 11:00 AM-2:00 PM you have a chance to play a video game on the Champa Street LED screen. Curious to see how this looks/works.

I'm sure this is probably a +Launchpad feature that has been around for a while, but it's the first time I've discovered it: you can have a PPA build against what's currently in proposed rather than against only what's in the archive proper.

Just go to your PPA and click on Edit PPA dependencies, and you'll see this screen.

At the moment, this has been super handy for:

1) Helping make sure that none of the stuffs I maintain are going to face regressions when Python 3.4.3 hits Ubuntu Trusty proper

2) Getting a leg up on possible Python 3.5 regressions in Ubuntu Wily

Cool stuff, try it out if you haven't already!

I hope this makes life a bit easier for Gmail users. The reason this only applies to certain kinds of notifications is that we implemented this in the higher-level BaseMailer layer that not everything uses yet, so most of the remaining work involves porting ad-hoc mail construction code to that. (We may apply a temporary hack in the case of bug mail, since that's both important and ridiculously complicated.)

Sometimes mailing lists are still good. Sometimes really good.

+Mohanarangan Muthukumar - true, good point. But they can get a little overwhelming when you're subscribed to too many of them :D

Good information on the upcoming GCC 5 transition in Ubuntu Wily and the resulting C++ ABI break (rebuild early, rebuild often)
Transitions in the landing-16 PPA. The PPA was used to track down any issues with the ubuntu-touch stack. Note that this PPA contains rebuilt but not renamed libraries. The https://launchpad.net/~ci-train-ppa-service/+archive/ubuntu/landing-016 hosts the follow-up transitions as well (this are ...

This page is a bit difficult to discover, but damn handy: it shows packages currently in proposed that (assuming their SRU validation passes) will soon hit the archive proper.

This page is extra handy at the moment for keeping tabs on what will still land for Ubuntu 14.04.3.

Key changes that stand out for me for in 14.04.3:

* Python 3.4.3 is being brought to Trusty, replacing Python 3.4.0, which will mean a lot of patches can be dropped, making security and stability maintenance for Python 3.4 easier in Trusty going forward; overall this should be a very low risk change, but I do know it caused a regression with Ubiquity (the details of which I don't know); to be prepared for this, you might want to enable trusty-proposed and make sure all your 3rd party Python 3.4 software/packages are still happy, unit tests pass, etc

* nvidia-340 will replace nvidia-331 (unlike nvidia-346, 340 does not drop support for any older hardware compared to 331, so both 340 and 346 are needed in the archive)

* nvidia-346 is coming to Trusty! This is personally awesome for me because it means I wont have to maintain backports of 346 for Trusty anymore in the +System76 PPA (at least until the point that we're shipping Nvidia hardware that needs something newer than 346, which past experience suggests will happen sooner rather than later)

Thanks to +Alberto Milone for his work on bringing nvidia-340, nvidia-346 to Trusty! Hopefully in some small part my backports helped pave the way :D

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!
