  • Story Type: News Story
Content management is a mix of development, design, marketing, information architecture, user experience, and more. In the past 15 years, content management has evolved, but its foundation—how users create, manage, and deliver content—has remained relatively stable. Websites are still a core asset of most businesses, which means the CMS has become increasingly important. For developers who are building on top of a CMS, how the systems have changed is apparent. read more

Pro Tip: Expand your Chromebook by changing the ChromeOS Downloads location

If you're a user of the Chromebook, there is one issue that you know you will someday have to face--running out of space. Internal storage on Chromebooks is very similar to that of smartphone, in that it is very limited. For those that are diligent about keeping their systems clean, this isn't a problem. If, however, you are one of those that tends to forget about keeping track of your local storage space, you might find yourself out of space and having to finally go through and delete.

Semplice 7 Screenshot Tour

It's my pleasure to announce the release of Semplice 7, code-named 'Comfortably Numb'. Functionally and aesthetically-wise, you won't find that many differences from Semplice 6. But under the hood there are plenty. Openbox became a component of the desktop environment and not the desktop environment itself. This distinction will help me introduce vera, a plugin-based GTK+ 3 desktop environment, made from scratch by us. Currently Openbox and tint2 run as plugins, but they will eventually get replaced by our own ones. We are not fans of the NIH thing, but personally I feel that this is the right step to make in order to get things up and running on Wayland. Wayland is the future and it's actually already production-ready (I, for example, already run it in my phone, and it's pretty damn exciting).

Semplice 7 Screencast

Every revolution starts with a small step. Semplice 7 is ours. Since our first release 5 years ago, our goal was to create an innovative and lightweight operating system, and not being a "me-too" Openbox-based distribution like many are showing up lately. Admittedly, we have been good at being an Openbox-based distribution. Semplice 6 was our own peak and I'm truly proud of it. But it's time to move on.

It's my pleasure to announce the release of Semplice 7, codenamed "Comfortably Numb".

New Atom SoC will target IoT devices, says Intel

Designing Foils with XFLR5

For any object moving through a fluid, forces are applied to the object as the fluid moves around it. A fluid can be something like water, or even something like the air around us. When the object is specifically designed to maximize the forces that the fluid can apply, you can designate these designs as airfoils. A more common name that most people would use is a wing. The shape of a wing, or airfoil, determines the forces that are applied to it when it moves through a fluid or the air. These forces also depend on the speed of motion through the fluid and the direction of flow around the airfoil.
