It has been a week since the CocoonGT2006. Time really flies, but now it’s time for a quick flashback of all the things that happened during those days.
A couple of days ago I succesfully managed to get AIGLX working on my Dell laptop in Ubuntu Dapper. I started out trying to install GLX a few months ago, but it was quite a strugle and I decided to leave it for now.
The other day I discovered IEs 4 Linux - Internet Explorers for Linux. This great tool gives me another reason to start developing my web applications in my Ubuntu development environment. IEs 4 Linux gives you the full power of IE 5.0-6.0 inside linux in combination with Wine. The installation was very easy. No clicks needed. No boring setup processes. No Wine complications. Just one easy script and you'll get three IE versions. What else could you wish for right?After having used FireFox, Thunderbird and Eclipse for many years, I can not see why I would not be able to do my daily work in a linux environment these days. Now I just need to convince my boss ;-)
Year in year out people travel around the world to spread the word about this great product called Apache Cocoon. From ApacheCon’s to OSCON’s you will find people doing talks about Cocoon. The best place for talking about Cocoon is the annual Cocoon GetTogether where people from around the world meet and share knowledge about Cocoon.
At OSCON, the O’Reilly open source conference, Google announced an open source project hosting site called: Google Code Project Hosting. Greg Stein, an open source engineer with Google and chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, says in an interview with NewsForge that it’s not supposed to rival SourceForge.net, but I guess that SF will of course suffer from Google’s new service.
