Raspberry Pi compatible HDMI stick, STB seeks funding

Filed under
Linux
Debian

A Kickstarter project from a startup called I2P Designs has spun a Raspberry Pi compatible HDMI stick computer plus a media player with an optional HDD.

The combined Raspberry HDMI Stick (Pi-Stick) and Raspberry STB (Pi-STB) project is looking for £50,000 (about $80,000) in Kickstarter funding, with 11 days left to go. The project is listed under the name Richard Swatton, who appears to be CEO of Shenzhen-based startup I2P Designs. The Pi-Stick and Pi-STB are ready to go for £50 ($80) apiece, and like the almost complete Pi-STB-HDD version of the Pi-STB, are set to ship in November.

KDE Frameworks 5.61, Applications 19.08 in FreeBSD

Recent releases were KDE Frameworks 5.61 and KDE Applications 19.08. These have both landed in the official FreeBSD ports tree, after Tobias did most of the work and I pushed the big red button. Your FreeBSD machine will need to be following current ports – not the quarterly release branches, since we don’t backport to those. All the modern bits have arrived, maintaining the KDE-FreeBSD team’s commitment to up-to-date software for the FreeBSD desktop. The one thing we’re currently lagging on is Qt 5.13. There’s a FreeBSD problem report tracking that update. Read more

Dev branch moving towards Qt 6

As you know, Qt 5.14 will be branched pretty soon. After that I would expect that most new development work would start to be aimed towards Qt 6. As it looks right now, 5.15 will be a smaller release where we polish what we have in 5.14, and prepare some things for Qt 6. To reflect that and help us all understand that the development focus is now towards Qt 6, I would like to propose that dev becomes the Qt 6 branch after we branched away 5.14 (and we merge wip/qt6 back into dev). We can then either create a 5.15 branch at the same time, or slightly later, once 5.14 has stabilised a bit more (e.g. after the beta or RC).
