Ubuntu 8.04 LTS; Interview with Knuth; Using Bugzilla

Saturday 26th April 2008

Category: News

First up is the release of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. While Ubuntu is one of the most popular distributions, it does seem to have released with a number of non-trivial bugs, such as ALSA not always working, your network connection packing up, and scheduler problems. Although this is bad enough in a normal release, this is a long term support release - it will be supported until 2011 on the desktop. A little more time bug squashing might not have gone amiss.

Elsewhere, author of the Art of Programming Donald Knuth is interviewed on subjects ranging from literate programming to parallel computing.

Finally, a look at how not to use Bugzilla.
