Another great output of the hackfest last week. Thanks a lot +Mario Sanchez Prada !

I encourage everyone to look into xdg-app packaging, I added GNOME Calculator a while ago and it really is quite easy, some problems may arise if you access network or privileged system info, but the sooner we identify those the sooner we should be able to fix it.
 
Finally got Chromium browser running as an xdg-app, and not just building (which was nice too, but not that useful), as a result of my attendance to the GNOME Software hackfest. And it even seems to work!

Anyway, this is far from over, but for now I'm quite satisfied with the results. Special thanks to +Richard Hughes for inviting me over and to +Alexander Larsson for his help with my dumb questions during the hackfest!

The guys from #eyeOS have come up with a neat project to launch productivity apps on the browser and do file sharing/management dropbox style. From what I know they're using SPICE behind the scenes. Good stuff.
 
Lets culminate the deprecation of Google Docs and Office365, I'm really excited to be releasing all of this as free software as soon as next week :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xqn14OtcuQ +ownCloud +LibreOffice +Seafile Community +Jos Poortvliet +Frank Karlitschek +Georg Greve +Aaron Seigo +Dan Vrátil +The KDE Community

Looks like the efforts around http://limadriver.org/ wined down. This is a shame as MALI 400/450 has become super popular among Single Board Computers, phones and other end cosumer products.

I really don't get why ARM hasn't followed a similar approach as AMD and Intel has with regards to their graphics driver stack.
Lima: An open source graphics driver for ARM Mali GPUs. Lima is an open source graphics driver which supports Mali-200 and Mali-400 GPUs. The aim of this driver and others such as freedreno is to finally bring all the advantages of open source software to ARM SoC graphics drivers.

ahh, ok, so the allwinner display controller driver..  there are already a couple of upstream kms display-only drivers for various SoC's that use mali (sti, rockchip, etc), but that is nothing about the gpu
