In this episode: There’s lots of news in this episode, including Broadcom releasing the full source of its VideoCore IV GPU, a free ‘Introduction to Linux’ course from the Linux Foundation, CRYENGINE’s imminent Linux release and the formation of a Linux Voice Steam Group. We’ve got some great discoveries, three neurons to vocalise and an awesome Voice of the Masses.
What’s in the show:
Broadcom has released the full source of the OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 driver stack for its VideoCore IV GPU, as used in the Raspberry Pi. Consequently, the Raspberry Pi Foundation wants to give $10,000 to the first person to get Quake III running via ported versions of libGLESv1_CM.so and libEGL.so. The Linux Foundation is to offer its ‘Introduction to Linux’ course, previously worth $2,400, for free. A bug in the GnuTLS library left hundreds of Linux tools potentially vulnerable to a variety of security exploits. The CRYENGINE is going to be released for Linux. And this week, we enjoyed our first Linux Voice gaming session. Join our Linux Voice Steam group here, and let us know what you’d like to play. Finally, it was International Women’s Day on March 8th.
