2015-02-26: +Xubuntu 15.04 beta 1 released.

2015-02-28: +Xfce 4.12 released.

Since beta 1 means feature freeze, the upcoming version of Xubuntu missed having the latest version of Xfce by two days? What a shame!

Really great podcast featuring two of the nicest people you're likely to meet in the Perl community!
(+Tatsuhiko Miyagawa and +Ricardo Signes )

I was disappointed that the FOSDEM live feeds weren't working for me the this weekend. I can't wait for the videos to show up!
Ricardo Signes joins me to talk about the development of Perl 5.

I've been using jessie for months (since August on my primary laptop) and it's fantastic.  Probably the best operating system I've ever used.

Of course, now that it's been marked stable, it suddenly seems a little boring. Maybe it's time to check out stretch! :)

Hey, +Jeff Miller, this is kind of what we were just talking about! (Except in Go, it's all composition...we have no inheritance at all.) Fantastic talk!

#PerconaLive was in North America, but I think there were more folks there from Europe.

As much as I'm enjoying "Backstrom," I think my favorite new show of 2015 is "Hacking with Andrew and Brad." In episode 1, we saw them refactor tip.golang.org. In episode 2, they wrote an HTTP/2 client!

As an Emacs user who works with a bunch of Vim users, I enjoyed seeing their improved terminal sharing technique in episode 2. Yay, screen!
