Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

I have just received notification to upgrade my Firefox browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99. The code “b99″ sounds a little interesting, as this is probably the first time I have seen Mozilla come up with this codename.

This version is a preview of Firefox 3.5, the upcoming version of the Firefox web browser. It has not yet gone through a full set of quality assurance tests, and should not be considered as a release candidate. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate is expected to be issued shortly. At that time users will be automatically upgraded to that version.

Early this month, VLC Media Player Portable 0.9.9 was released for public to be downloaded. The portable version is packaged as part of a portable app, so that you can take your audio and video files along with everything you need to play on the go.

This latest version includes a multilingual installer and fixes a bug where directory was left locally. Furthermore, it is released under the open source, and it is completely free. The VLC Media Player is both a cross-platform multi-media player and a streaming server.

As a media player, it is highly portable, supporting various audio and video formats, such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, etc. Furthermore, the VLC player also playbacks DVDs and VCDs. In addition, it also works equally well as a streaming server to support unicast or multicast in IPv4 and IPv6 on high-bandwidth network.

openSUSE 11.1 is Out

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Linux, Site News

After reviewing a couple of Linux Operating Systems (OS), such as Ubuntu and Debian, this time I am going to introduce you another Linux OS that is one of my favourite – openSUSE 11.1. Similarly, openSUSE is a free, Linux-based OP for your computer, laptop or even server. What you can do with Microsoft Windows, you can almost do so with Linux, e.g. surf the web, watch DVDs, play games, etc.

In this release of version 11.1, there are tonnes of new features and improvements, such as improved desktop experience with GNOME 2.24 and KDE 4.1.3. On top of that, you get to run OpenOffice.org 3.0, which is one of the latest office suite and is comparable to Microsoft Office. Whilst this version proves to be really a breakthrough for openSUSE users, there are several enhancement and improvements that we can look forward to.

Debian 5.0

Posted in Development Software, Linux, Site News

The latest release of Debian 5.0 has released not long ago. If you have heard of Ubuntu, but not Debian, then it is time that you start getting yourself familiar with this Operating System (OS). Similar to Ubuntu and other Linux OS, Debian is a free OS for your computer, and uses the Linux kernel (which is the core of an OS). In Debian, there over 25,113 packages, precomplied software bundled up in a nice format for easy installation. What is more interesting is that, Ubuntu, widely used and popular Linux OS, is built on Debian OS platform.

Amongst all the Linux OS, Debian is one of those that I would fully recommend to everyone to use it. However, the level of usage could considerably meant for those who are advanced level and prefer to drill down to the low level configuration to get the system up and running. Once it is operational, it is a perfect OS to run servers and even desktops.

Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8 Released

Posted in Business Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

The next version of Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8 has just been released; it was not long ago since version 3.0.7 was announced. Anyway, I will keep things short here and tell you what are the changes in this version.

Basically, the Mozilla Firefox developers have fixed 2 security issues in this release. These are the only changes so far, as announced on the release note. I believe these fixes are rather critical, so if you are using 3.0.7, perhaps you should consider upgrading right away.
