==== For desktop users ====

A universe of new features for end users:

* GNOME 3 desktop environment -- GNOME 3 is the next generation of GNOME with a brand new user interface. It provides a completely new and modern desktop that has been designed for today's users and technologies. Fedora 15 is the first major distribution to include GNOME 3 by default. GNOME 3 is being developed with extensive upstream participation from Red Hat developers and Fedora volunteers, and GNOME 3 is tightly integrated in Fedora 15. GNOME Shell, the new user interface of GNOME 3, is polished, robust and extensible, and several GNOME Shell extensions and the GNOME tweak tool are available in the Fedora software repository. Thanks to the Fedora desktop team developers and community volunteers.

* Btrfs filesystem -- Btrfs, the next generation filesystem is being developed with upstream participation of Red Hat developers, Oracle and many others. Btrfs is now available as a menu item in the installer (only for non-live images. live images support just Ext4) and does not require passing a special option to the installer as in the previous releases. Btrfs availability has moved up a notch as a incremental step towards the goal of Btrfs as the default filesystem in the next release of Fedora. The btrfsck program for performing filesystem checks is under active development upstream with participation from Fedora but the one included in this release is still limited and hence users are highly recommended to maintain backups when using this filesystem (backups are a good idea anyway!). Thanks to Josef Bacik, Red Hat Btrfs developer, for his upstream participation and integration of this feature in Fedora including a yum plugin (yum-plugin-fs-snapshot) that enables users to rollback updates if necessary, taking advantage of Btrfs snapshots.

* Indic typing booster -- Indic typing booster is a predictive input method for the ibus platform. It suggests complete words based on partial input, and users can simply select a word from the suggestion list and improve their typing speed and accuracy. Thanks to the development led by Pravin Satpute and Naveen Kumar, Red Hat I18N team engineers in Pune, India.

* Better crash reporting -- ABRT, a crash reporting tool in Fedora, can now perform a part of crash processing remotely, on a Fedora Project server. Remote coredump retracing avoids users having to download a large amount of debug information and leads to better quality reports. The retrace server can generate good backtraces with a much higher success rate than local retracing.

* Redesigned SELinux troubleshooter -- SELinux troubleshooter is a graphical tool that watches and analyses log files and automatically provides solutions to common issues. In this release, this tool has been redesigned to be simpler but provide more solutions at the same time. Thanks to Dan Walsh, SELinux developer at Red Hat, for leading the development of this functionality.

* Higher compression in live images -- Live images in this release use XZ compression instead of gzip as in older releases, making them smaller (about 10%) to download or providing more space for applications to be made available by default. Thanks to Bruno Wolff III, Fedora community volunteer, for integrating this functionality in Fedora Live CD tools. Thanks to Phillip Lougher for his work on squashfs and Lasse Collin for getting XZ squashfs support in the upstream Linux kernel.

* Better power management -- Fedora 15 includes a redesigned and better version of powertop and newer versions of tuned and pm-utils for better power management. The tuned package contains a daemon that tunes system settings dynamically to balance between power consumption and performance. It also performs various kernel tunings according to selected profile. The new version of tuned brings several bug fixes, improvements and profiles updates for better efficiency. Thanks to Jaroslav Škarvada, Red Hat developer, for integrating the newer powertop and pm-utils, as well as performing power measurement and benchmarking. Thanks to Jan Včelák, Red Hat developer, for developing tuned and integrating the newer version in this release.

* LibreOffice productivity suite -- LibreOffice is a community-driven and developed free and open source personal productivity suite which is a project of the not-for-profit organization, The Document Foundation. It is a fork of OpenOffice.org with a diverse community of contributors including developers from Red Hat, Novell and many volunteers. OpenOffice.org has been replaced with LibreOffice in this release. Thanks to Caolán McNamara from Red Hat for his upstream participation and for maintaining LibreOffice in Fedora.

* Firefox 4 web browser -- A new major version of this popular browser from the Mozilla non-profit foundation is part of this release. Firefox 4 features JavaScript execution speeds up to six times faster than the previous version, new capabilities such as Firefox Sync, native support for the patent unencumbered WebM multimedia format, HTML5 technologies and a completely revised user interface. Thanks to Christopher Aillon from Red Hat and others for integrating Firefox 4 in this release.

* KDE plasma workspaces 4.6 and Xfce 4.8 desktop environments -- Fedora 15 includes new major versions of these alternative desktop environments. Fedora also provides dedicated KDE Plasma Workspaces and Xfce installable live images that include these desktop environments by default. Thanks to Red Hat developers and other Fedora community volunteers, part of KDE and Xfce special interest groups.

* Sugar .92 learning platform -- Sugar is a desktop environment originally designed for the OLPC project which has now evolved into a learning platform developed by the non-profit Sugar Labs foundation. This version provides major usability improvements for the first login screen and the control panel, as well as new features such as support for 3G networks. Thanks to Peter Robinson and Sebastian Dziallas, Fedora community volunteers, for leading the integration of this environment.

Die Nepal Bandh : Roundup of Social Media Reaction [PICS]

Posted: 24 May 2011 02:40 AM PDT

संविधान सभाको म्याद नजिकिँदै गर्दा, विभिन्न संगठनहरुको नाममा दिनहुँ जसो बन्द को आयोजना गर्ने गरिएको छ । अस्ति क्षेत्री समाजले काठमाडौँ उपत्यका बन्द गर्यो, हिजो पूर्व बन्द गर्यो, आज मातृका यादव को पुनर्गठित माओवादीले नेपाल बन्द को आह्वान गर्‍यो । केही दिन अघि देखि ब्राम्हण समाजले पश्चिमाञ्चलमा बन्द गरेको थियो । कहिले कुन nepal bandhaसंगठन को नाम मा त, कहिले कुन संगठन को नाम मा । यहाँ दिनहुँ बन्द हुन्छन् भन्दा फरक नपर्ला । बन्द गर्ने बानी, हाम्रो दिर्घ रोग नै भइसक्यो ।

आज मातृका यादव को समूह को आह्वान मा नेपाल बन्द गरियो । काठमाडौँ उपत्यकामा गाडी फाट्टफुट्ट चलेपनि, तराई का जिल्लातिर भने, बन्द को प्रभाव अत्याधिक परेको कुरा, टेलिभिजनहरु ले आफ्ना समाचार मा प्रसारण गरिरहेकाछन् । २ दिन अघि पनि काठमाडौँ बन्द नै थियो, क्षेत्री समाज को आह्वान मा । तर त्यसै दिन केही युवाहरु ले ठमेलमा 'मोटरसाइटक र्याली' गरेर बन्द को विरोध गरे । अनि आज पनि बन्द, तर आज को बन्द काठमाडौँ मा उनीहरुले सोचेको जति सफल हुन सकेन । स्कुल, क्याम्पस बन्द भएपनि, ट्याक्सी, ट्याम्पु जस्ता सार्वजनिक सवारीसाधनहरु गुडिरहेको कुरा, साथिहरुले ट्विट र फेसबुक मार्फत बताइरहनु भएको छ । बिहान केही थोरै सवारी साधन देखिएपनि, अहिले ट्याम्पु र बाइकहरु प्रशस्तै गुडेको देख्न सकिन्छ । साँच्चै भन्दा आज को बन्द काठमाडौँ मा भने विफल भयो भन्दा फरक पर्दैन । अनि नेपालीहरुलाई बन्द चाहिएको पनि छैन ।

यही बन्द कै सिलसिलामा फेसबुक र ट्विटर का नेपाली प्रयोगकर्ताहरुले बन्द को विरोध आफ्ना ट्विट र स्टाटस मार्फत व्यक्त गरिरहेकाछन् । ट्विटर प्रयोगकर्ताहरु आफू पुगेको ठाउँमा बन्द के कस्तो छ भनेर, ट्विटर मार्फत निरन्तर जानकारी गराइरहनु भएको छ । हामीले ट्विटर र फेसबुक मा देखिएका केही प्रतिक्रियाहरुलाई यहाँ राख्ने जमर्को गरेका छौँ ।

बिहानै काठमाडौँ को यात्रा गर्नुभएका  @acharya14 का अनुसार सानेपा देखि वनस्थली  (सानेपा – सातदोवाटो – कोटेश्वर – गठ्ठाघर – वानेश्वर –अनामनगर – पुतलिसडक - टिचिङ हस्पिटल – बसुन्धारा – नयाँवसपार्क – वनस्थली) पुग्दा, बाटो मा थोरै सार्वजनिक यातायात का साधन देखिएपनि बन्दकर्ताहरु कतै देखिएन । उहाँ ले विहानै 'आफ्ना सवारीसाधन चलाएर निस्किए हुने' कुरा ट्विट मा बताउनु भएको थियो ।


त्यस्तै @dacharya का अनुसार, पुरानो वानेश्वर >> डिल्ली बजार >> शहिद गेट>> त्रिपुरेश्वर >> टेकु सम्म गाडिमा पुगेर फर्कँदा कहिँ कतै बन्द आयोजक देखिएनन् !  उहाँ को जस्तै अनुभव @wordswave को पनि रहेको थियो । @wordswave का अनुसार जोरपाटी >> गोठाटार >> मुलपानी >> पेप्सिकोला >> जरिबुटी >> कोटेश्वर >> बालकुमारी सम्म बाइकमा आउँदा कहिँ कतै बन्द आयोजक देखिएनन् :)

@nepaldiary ले ठिमी >कौसलटार >कोटेशोर > नयाँ बानेश्वर > दुई चक्कर संबिधान सभा > गौशाला >चाबेल> कपन नो बन्द । भनेर ट्विट गर्नुभएको थियो ।

यसबाहेक, ट्विटर मा बन्द को विरोधमा साथीहरुले ट्विट गरिरहनुभएको छ । बन्द को विरोधमा आवाज उठाउँदै ख्यालठट्टा गरिरहनु भएको छ । बन्द को विषयमा देखिएका केही ट्विटहरु को स्क्रिनसट हामी यहाँ राख्दैछौँ । हामीलाई बन्द पुगिसकेको छ  है !


bandh1bandh2त्यसो त बन्द को विरोधमा फेसबुक का स्टाटसहरु पनि धेरै देखियो । सबै फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताहरु बन्द को विपक्ष मा देखिनूभएको थियो । यही बन्द कै विरोधमा पनि फेसबुकमा धेरै पेजहरु खुलेकाछन् ।



पूनश्च: यदि कसैलाई यहाँ आफ्नो ट्विट प्रकाशित हुँदा आपत्ति छ भने, जानकारी गराउनुहोला !
