WordPress 4.1 Beta 1

Welcome, everyone, to WordPress 4.1 Beta 1! This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. To test WordPress 4.1, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can […]

Split View Patch Available For Thunar File Manager

Thunar, the default Xfce file manager, doesn’t support split view. In a bug report from 2013 which requested this feature, Nick Schermer, one of the Thunar developers, said that Thunar won’t support split view because “Thunar is by design meant to be simple and easy to use”.Since Thunar is open source software, Xfce user Román […]

The US Government’s Tenuous Relationship With Open Source

The amount of open source software used by the U.S. government might be one of the biggest secrets in Washington. Not even purveyors of FOSS, as in free and open source software, know the extent of federal agency adoption of nonproprietary software. Some in the Beltway Loop contend that open source is very prevalent. Others suggest that it’s avoided because its code is exposed for anyone to see.

Firefox Develops a Case of Selective Amnesia

Roughly 10 years to the day after the release of Firefox 1.0, Mozilla on Monday announced an updated version of its open source browser complete with a new Forget button aimed at protecting users’ privacy. Forget asks you only one question, said Firefox Vice President Johnathan Nightingale. “How much do you want to forget?” Once you supply a time frame, “it takes care of the rest.”

GNOME: Groupon has agreed to change its product name

Thank you so much for your donations and help in spreading the word! We are overwhelmed and reinvigorated by the support we received from everyone, which has resulted in the following joint announcement that we’re publishing with Groupon:

“Groupon has agreed to change its Gnome product name to resolve the GNOME Foundation’s concerns. Groupon is now abandoning all of its 28 pending trademark applications. The parties are working together on a mutually acceptable solution, a process that has already begun.”

There is something amazing about free software – it’s ethical technology but it also creates a fantastic community of people who are willing to fight for what’s right. It’s taken us a tremendous amount of time and effort to deal with this issue in the months leading up to our announcement and it will take us a little time to regroup. We’ll keep you posted as the matter resolves fully.

GNOME Foundation: GNOME starts campaign to protect its trademarks

GNOME has launched a campaign¹ to raise funds for protecting the GNOME trademarks.

Recently, Groupon launched Gnome², a tablet-based point of sale (POS) system that 
Groupon describes as a “platform” and an “operating system”.

The GNOME Foundation is concerned and sees their long-established mark for Free 
Software, GNOME, endangered. The GNOME Foundation asks for ideological and 
monetary support to cover the costs of opposing the marks Groupon applied to 
register, which were estimated to be around 80,000 USD.

“I cannot believe Groupon was not aware of GNOME, the Free Software desktop 
environment and application suite, when it chose the name. Especially as they 
claim to be ‘fueled by open source‘³,” said Tobias Mueller, one of the directors 
of the GNOME Foundation.

“We will not give up and fight their use of our name which we have established 
over the last 17 years to provide users all over the world with high quality 
Free Software solutions.”

“Millions of people who use GNU/Linux based systems use GNOME or GNOME-related 
technologies, such as GLib or GTK+. We must not let a billion-dollar-company 
take the well-established name of one of the biggest Free Software communities,” 
Tobias added. “If you want to help GNOME defend its trademark and promote Free 
Software, visit the campaign’s page¹, share the link, and let Groupon know that 
they behaved terribly”.

GNOME also made a press contact⁴ available for further questions or interviews.
