Hi again everyone, it's this time of the month (the last day of a month, if I manage to publish on time).
March 2019 brought lots of interesting releases and Unix/Linux news.
Unix and Linux News
- Swift 5 released by Apple
- BIND 9.14.0 released – now only working with BIND servers properly supporting EDNS
- Samba 4.10.0 released – I'm still using Samba for small tasks in a few projects
- Java SE 12 released
Interesting and Useful
- Seeking the Productive Life – amazingly insightful and useful article from Stephen Wolfram
- Apple Still Hasn't Fixed Its Macbook Keyboard Problem – this is the reason I had a week of downtime and bought a Dell XPS 13 laptop just a few weeks ago. To be fair, new laptop was not necessary – I got my trusty Retina MacBook Pro 15 2017 in 4 working days, with brand new keyboard.
- Hetzner Cloud CLI – sounds cool, should help with managing dedicated and VPS servers in Hetzner
- Secrets leaked on GitHub – very interesting report about what gets leaked and how quickly developers fix this and remove secrets from public GitHub repos
