Today in Tech – 2012

SourceForge - Mié, 01/17/2018 - 06:26

On this day in 2012 Yahoo! Co-founder Jerry Yang resigns from the board of Yahoo!. Yang founded Yahoo! alongside David Filo while studying in Stanford in 1994. It began as a directory of other websites called “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web”, later renamed “Yahoo! Inc.” when the website grew in popularity. By 1994 Yahoo! had gained around 100,000 unique visitors until it became one of the most popular web portals of the late ’90s. By 2007 Yang was named CEO. He supported the decision to reject Microsoft’s multi-billion offer to take over Yahoo!, which by then was starting to falter. Some years later, Yahoo! was valued at less than half of Microsoft’s acquisition offer.

Amidst pressure from investors and board members, Yang formally resigned in January 2012.

Here are the featured projects for the week, which appear on the front page of


GeckoLinux is a Linux distribution based on openSUSE. I’ve used Linux on the desktop since approximately 2001. I have used many versions of openSUSE since the project’s inception, and I used SuSE Linux before that. I’ve always appreciated openSUSE’s flexibility and highly innovative infrastructure, but the profusion of “paper cuts” in the default configuration always made me think twice before recommending it to others. This projects sets out to change that.

CFD Utilities

The CFD Utility Software Library (previously known as the Aerodynamics Division Software Library at NASA Ames Research Center) contains nearly 30 libraries of generalized subroutines and close to 100 applications built upon those libraries. These utilities have accumulated during four decades or so of software development in the aerospace field. All are written in Fortran 90 or FORTRAN 77 with potential reuse in mind. The only exception is the C translations of a dozen or so numerics routines grouped as C_utilities. David Saunders and Robert Kennelly are the primary authors, but miscellaneous contributions by others are gratefully acknowledged. See 1-line summaries of the libraries and applications under the Files menu. Each library folder also contains 1-line summaries of the grouped subroutines, while each application folder contains READMEs adapted from the main program headers. NASA permission to upload actual software was granted on Jan. 24, 2014.

Berryboot Updated OS Images

This is the biggest list of OS images for Berryboot. All these images have been tested before public availability. The original OS images were downloaded from their respective official websites, I did not modified any data of the original nor converted OS images. I convert most of the OS images by using this method: RetroPie and others already have OS images for Berryboot, I just compress it and serve as a mirror. Fedora OS images were converted by using this tool: I’m not part of the Berryboot project, I’m just a web developer with a Raspberry Pi 2. I cannot offer full support on these images. However, if you find any issue, please contact me and I’ll look into it. You can request OS images at: You can download Odroid C2 OS images from here:

January 2018, “Staff Pick” Project of the Month – Hibernate

SourceForge - Vie, 01/12/2018 - 06:04

For our January 2018 “Staff Pick” Project of the Month, we selected Hibernate, an Object/Relational Mapper tool for Java.

Hibernate implements the Java Persistence API. It allows developers to more easily write applications with data that outlives the application process. As an Object/Relational Mapping (ORM) framework, this is the focus of Hibernate: data persistence as it applies to relational databases (via JDBC).

Hibernate is configurable, highly scalable and reliable, as proven by the acceptance and use of thousands of Java developers. It also comes with several unique and useful features:

    • JPA Provider – In addition to its own “native” API, Hibernate is also an implementation of the Java Persistence API (JPA) specification. As such, it can be easily used in any environment supporting JPA including Java SE applications, Java EE application servers, Enterprise OSGi containers, etc.
    • Idiomatic persistence – Hibernate enables you to develop persistent classes following natural Object-oriented idioms including inheritance, polymorphism, association, composition, and the Java collections framework. Hibernate requires no interfaces or base classes for persistent classes and enables any class or data structure to be persistent.
    • Support Performance – Hibernate supports lazy initialization, numerous fetching strategies and optimistic locking with automatic versioning and time stamping. Hibernate requires no special database tables or fields and generates much of the SQL at system initialization time instead of at runtime. Hibernate consistently offers superior performance over straight JDBC code, both in terms of developer productivity and runtime performance.

Today in Tech – 1938

SourceForge - Mié, 01/10/2018 - 06:00

On this day in 1938 American computer scientist and mathematician Donald Knuth was born. Knuth is best known for his ongoing multi-volume book series The Art of Computer Programming, in which he compares and analyzes algorithms for performing some of the most fundamental computer science procedures. His primary purpose for writing these books was to eliminate the duplication of efforts by programmers. Apart from this book series Knuth also made several fundamental contributions in different branches of theoretical science. He is also the creator of the TeX computer typesetting system, and the WEB and CWEB computer programming systems. He has earned numerous awards and honors for his many achievements and contributions, including the Turing Award, the National Medal of Science, the Kyoto Prize and the John von Neumann Medal.

In his youth Knuth had a difficult time choosing physics (from which he eventually switched to mathematics) over music as his major in college. He has however, likened programming a computer to the creation of music or poetry, theorizing that like the latter, programming is an art form. This theory has been the basis of much of his writing.

Introducing the new SourceForge

SourceForge - Mar, 01/09/2018 - 18:36

Today we’re starting to roll out a whole new look for SourceForge.

As a quick refresher, SourceForge was acquired in 2016 and the new SourceForge team has been hard at work improving every aspect including:

Now, we’re rolling out the redesigned SourceForge to all users. This UX and new logo is just the first step. We will be releasing further improvements and new SourceForge features throughout the year.

SourceForge hosts over 430,000 projects and has 3.7 million registered developers. Every day, SourceForge sees over a million visitors and serves 4.5 million software downloads.

One of SourceForge’s main strengths has always been our ability to empower open source software developers to reach a huge amount of potential users through our powerful discovery and distribution capabilities. We also provide detailed statistics and mailing lists to project admins. The new SourceForge significantly improves on not only the design, but the detail and granularity of the statistics we provide project admins with. The SourceForge Directory is also much easier to use, with all project categorization types now available as filters on the left side of the Directory pages. 2018 will see us further improve on these capabilities.

We’ve also created a GitHub Importer tool that will import your GitHub project to SourceForge and sync your GitHub project file releases on SourceForge so you can take advantage of the strengths of both platforms. We believe the open source community is always better served when there are multiple options for open source projects to live, and these options are not mutually exclusive.

You can keep up with new developments on the SourceForge blog, newsletterTwitter, Facebook, and Google+.

The team at SourceForge is immensely passionate about open source software, and that has informed the new design as much as possible. The new look rolling out this week was a large project that took a lot of effort from a dedicated team, and will always be continually improved upon. We hope you enjoy it.

Contributing to Open Source: Make It a Habit!

SourceForge - Vie, 01/05/2018 - 06:33

Another year has come and gone, and open source continues to dominate the field of software development. Now what?

It’s easy to become complacent when things seem to only be going up, but with such a complex and diverse field as open source software development we know that there really isn’t any room for complacency. The issues raised last year regarding the security of FOSS was only one symptom of complacency; there could be more that have yet to arise.

If there’s one thing that’s consistently proven to prevent many already looming issues in open source, it’s contributions. Contributions to open source, from both new and old contributors, keeps the movement alive and keep projects at their best. They also prevent developer burnout from happening, which in turn prevents lapses and even discontinuation of a project.

So as a new year’s resolution, why not make contributing to open source a habit?

Start Slow

These days open source software has become so ubiquitous that just about anyone can get started contributing. It only takes a little bit of time each week, and while the gains aren’t always monetary, there is still a lot to be gained: experience, new skills and knowledge, even longterm career opportunities. And despite what most people think, contributions need not immediately come in code. In fact areas that are often neglected and are most in need of contributions are not areas that require code. They require documentation, software testing, feedback and marketing– contributions that are relatively easy and ideal for newcomers.

Contributing to open source projects is also not limited to individuals. If you’re part of a team or a company that relies on FOSS, you can always contribute as a team, a department, even an entire company. And it wouldn’t really be altruistic, because you rely on the software to keep your own business running. In this sense it’s really an investment in the tools your company uses.

Know What To Do

As enthusiastic as you may be to start contributing on a more regular basis however, it’s important to note that this is not something to be taken lightly. Of course you need to follow each project’s set of rules and guidelines, and if it’s your first time there may also be other unspoken rules you need to get acquainted with.

As the famous saying by JFK goes, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” so it should be with open source. For many developers, open source has been a jump off point to great careers in software development, and continues to be a helpful training ground and source of useful software. For all that open source software gives, it’s only right that we give back to it through contributions. It may only be an hour or two a day, but in the greater scheme of things it’s a substantial contribution that keeps a great, highly beneficial movement moving forward.
