Microsoft announced their new Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) last week at their //BUILD developer conference. Just a short week later, and they’ve already begun shipping the feature to early adopters in the Windows Insider program! I haven’t had much…

As one of the few people who actually has a real use for this: thanks for making this +Daniel Aleksandersen​!
 
I may have set a world record for most niche app ever when developing this thing. (My first published Android app, yey!) Give it a try if you’re ever in need of a troubleshooting utility for HTTP proxies. Probably a very small subset of people are ever in need of such a thing, but for the first time ever: there is now an app for that.
Detect problems and mitigate with network proxy services configured on your...

For the longest time network discovery didn't really work great on heterogeneous networks, as Apple products used one protocol (mDNS) and Microsoft products used another (LLMNR) (on Linux systems you'd get support for both using Avahi + systemd-resolved). The protocols are pretty similar, but just different enough that they are incompatible, so it is nice to read that Microsoft is now finally adding mDNS support, making the world a marginally better place.
Greater device interoperability with Macs and Linux system on the horizon for Windows 10. Operating system finally acknowledges it is not alone in having a widely deployed network‐discoverability protocol.

Why don't someone with a few minutes to spare and a clue about data analysis use this as a case-study to show how what a joke bitcoin privacy is: https://www.slightfuture.com/security/patreon-bitcoin-extortion.html ?
As far as I can tell, there is no mathematically sound scheme for laundering bitcoins at any interesting scale, so it should be easy enough to reveal the identity of the perpetrator of any such blackmail (assuming that anyone actually falls for the scam, and the guy(s)/gal(s) in question actually try to extract the money).
I just received my first BitCoin extortion email! —and I’m not impressed.

I got one here, which I forwarded to Patreon. It stinks to get these, but I expect it hurts to pay, too. I won't pay, myself.

Check out the new systemd release. I'm particularly happy with +Martin Pitt​'s help on he QA front this cycle!
 
systemd 228 got released this morning, and I now uploaded packages for Debian and Ubuntu. These contain two networkd fixes from master, so that once again all tests pass and there are no known regressions.

Thanks to +David Herrmann for doing the release, and to +Tom Gundersen for the fixes this morning! This was once again a relatively smooth exercise, I'm really happy about the process and QA these days.

Happy booting!

We'd finally like to announce the second round of systemd.conf sponsors!

We'd like to thank our sponsors, without them the conference would not be possible!

See you in Berlin!
