Interested in the future of packaging and deploying complex applications in containers? Check out this post from Christoph Görn, who gives some insight into the development that's going on with Nulecule and Atomic App.
 
More cool and froody stuff going on over on Project Atomic. Want to keep up with Nulecule and Atomic App (our work for composite applications w/multiple containers)? Sign up for the container-tools mailing list here: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/container-tools
We are pleased to announce Atomic App 0.1.1! Find it at github and docker hub. Atomic App is the reference implementation of the Nulecule Specification for composite applications. It can be used to bootstrap container applications and to install/deploy and run them. One of the key design goals of the Nulecule spec is to be container and orchestration engine agnostic, so that any developer or operator could successfully build, test, install, run...

Great post by +John Mark Walker on the Project Atomic blog. 
Our own Daniel Riek wrote a great blog post about CoreOS’s current efforts around the appc specification, rkt, and the significant work that remains. This is where it gets interesting:

If you're in the U.S., please take a moment to contact your reps. Good work EFF for continuing to track and fight this!
Leaked texts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement's “Intellectual Property” chapter confirm our worst fears: Big Content companies are pushing extreme copyright provisions in a secret trade deal that would put restrictive controls on the Internet.

So, my Facebook stream is full of Ferguson right now - wondering if the G+ community is following it as well?

Picked this up recently - strongly recommend reading it. It's well-researched and well-written, and it does a great job explaining how we've gradually gone from community policing to an "us vs. them" militarized police force that uses excessive force and brutal tactics far too often. We really need to roll this back, but I'm not optimistic that we can.

Well, I think it's all about laws benevolent to gun possession. When you're in an environment with a lot of guns, you don't think twice before you shoot, you just shoot because if you take time to think twice, it may be too late.
In Europe, every cop is also armed, yet we have very little shooting by the police because they don't feel the immediate threat because gun possession is very rare here.

I assume you have fedora on your chromebook. I just recently purchased a chromebook that includes a touchscreen and was deliberating over installing a linux distro so maybe you can help me. Does fedora work well on it and what number fedora have you installed ?.Also how easy is to install ? and finally did you use crouton?. Your comments would be much appreciated.

Awesome stuff - grab it today! Have been running Fedora 21 since the alphas, and it's very solid. Great desktop experience... and of course, the Atomic stuff is quite nifty.
 
We're proud to announce that we've just released the long-awaited Fedora 21. Get it while it's hot!

+Jason Brooks wrote this up, a first stab at documenting using Kubernetes with Atomic. Much more on this topic to come.
Atomic hosts include Kubernetes for orchestration and management of containerized application deployments, across a cluster of container hosts. If you’re interested in taking Kubernetes for a spin on an Atomic host, read on! Kubernetes+Atomic Hello World First, boot into CentOS Atomic host. You ought to be able to use Fedora Atomic as well, but currently, Atomic Fedora comes with an earlier version of kubernetes, so for each of the kubectl comm...
