A Platform Rocks The House For Tech Diversity At Morehouse College

October 8, 2015 Leave a comment

Last time I visited Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia (disclosure: I did work for them in 2013), John Silvanus Wilson was deep in thought. It was Christmas 2014 — a great time for reflection — and he was just ending the second year as president of a college best known for one of its alumni: Dr. Martin King. But during Dr. Wilson’s tenure, the Morehouse brand has evolvedin another direction: as a place committed to STEM education for African American men.  The school boasts a lot of “number one’s.”  It’s the number one institution of “baccalaureate origin for black men earning a PhD in science and engineering.”  It also boasts a lot of “mores,” in keeping with its namesake.  According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, Morehouse produced more black male applicants (148) to medical school between 2010 and 2014 than any other college in the US.

MATE 1.11.0 lanzado

October 8, 2015 Leave a comment

mate 1.11.0

Cuando el escritorio MATE surgió como un fork de GNOME 2, hecho que aconteció en el seno de la distro Linux Mint, no fueron pocos los que se lanzaron a el con una mezcla de nostalgia y también con ansias de un rendimiento que GNOME 3 no podía ofrecer. Pero a su vez no fueron pocos los que veían una esperanza de vida no demasiado larga para este proyecto, algo que a estas alturas queda claro no era acertado.

Hace pocas horas llegó MATE 1.11.0, un entorno de escritorio que goza de muy buena salud y que ofrece una buena cantidad de novedades, aunque con el ojo más puesto en lo que será la próxima versión, la 1.12.0, puesto que en aquella llegará el soporte completo para GTK3 y para logind (parte del sistema de inicio Systemd) como así también soporte inicial para Wayland, el nuevo servidor gráfico.

Todo ello será la base sobre la cual este escritorio, y por sobre todas las cosas sus usuarios, pueda comenzar a mirar al futuro con tranquilidad, pero mientras tanto en MATE 1.11.0 tenemos algunos cambios como el soporte para la emulación del click de botón del medio en ratones, algunas mejoras de rendimiento en el soporte para GTK3 y la novedad del soporte para XRandR 1.3+, todo ello sumado a muchas mejoras en términos de estabilidad y de rendimiento a nivel general.

 

El artículo MATE 1.11.0 lanzado ha sido originalmente publicado en Linux Adictos.
