LibreOffice 7.0 approaches half a million downloads in week one

  • LibreOffice 7.0 approaches half a million downloads in week one

    Last week, The Document Foundation released LibreOffice 7.0 with features such as OpenDocument Format 1.3 support and Vulkan GPU-based acceleration. The Document Foundation has now published some stats about the first week of availability, including the fact the new office suite has been downloaded 422,938 times.

    The figure which The Document Foundation has published only represents the stats from the official downloads page so the figure is probably a bit higher as Linux users will download the new version from their respective package managers instead. Only a portion of Linux distributions, however, will have switched to LibreOffice 7.0 because the bigger ones like Ubuntu and Linux Mint are still offering LibreOffice 6.4 in their latest distributions.

Open Source Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Solutions

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for accessing directory services. It runs on a layer above the TCP/IP stack incorporating simplified encoding methods, and offers a convenient way to connect to, search, and modify Internet directories, specifically X.500-based directory services. It is an open, vendor-neutral, industry standard application protocol. LDAP utilizes a client-server model. This protocol is specifically targeted at management applications and browser applications that provide read/write interactive access to directories. The main benefit of using an LDAP server is that information for an entire organization can be consolidated into a central repository. LDAP supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), so that sensitive data can be protected. LDAP servers are used for a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, user authentication, machine authentication, user/system groups, asset tracking, organization representation, and application configuration stores.

Introducing Precursor

Precursor is a mobile, open source electronics platform. Similar to how a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino can be transformed into an IoT gadget with the addition of a couple breakout boards, some solder, and a bit of code, Precursor is a framework upon which you can assemble a wide variety of DIY mobile applications. Precursor is unique in the open source electronics space in that it’s designed from the ground-up to be carried around in your pocket. It’s not just a naked circuit board with connectors hanging off at random locations: it comes fully integrated—with a rechargeable battery, a display, and a keyboard—in a sleek, 7.2 mm (quarter-inch) aluminum case.
