Title: Voikons Neuralized

In this episode: Scandal at SourceForge. Confusion at Kubuntu. Fanfare for Fedora but Misery for Mandriva. Plus fabulous finds, neurotic neurons and missives from the masses.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
    • SourceForge has blocked the lead developer from accessing the GIMP for Windows account, injecting adware into the binary download. SourceForge has responded to criticism by saying it was helping to keep an abandoned project ‘current’. The Ubuntu Community Council has said it no longer respects the authority of long-time Kubuntu maintainer Jonathan Riddell. Jonathan himself has said he’s never claimed to be the Kubuntu leader. Fedora 22 has been released! OnlyOffice, a web-based wordprocessor, has been open sourced. Mandriva has gone into liquidation. And there’s a new vulnerability – this one’s called VENOM and it affect the floppy disk controller in KVM.
