Windows Server 2008 gets more and more media coverage these days since its release date is getting closer. This post summarizes some interesting information I found today.

Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate… 0

Windows Server Roadmap An article at unveils the Windows Server roadmap. Most interesting is that Windows Server 2008 is scheduled for release in January 2008 and a release candidate might already be available in November or December this year. Well, Microsoft seldom sticks to its own schedules, but at least we have a concrete date now.

Windows Server 2008 is Microsoft's last 32-bit server OS Several news sites are discussing this issue. Bill Laing, general manager of the Windows Server division, said that after 2008 Microsoft would only produce 64 bit operating systems. This has led to speculation that Vista would be Microsoft's last 32 desktop OS. However, this was just a jump to conclusions as clarified by the Vista blog .Subscribe to 4sysops newsletter!New Server Core Step by Step guide Some days ago, I posted an article on how to get started with Windows 2008 Server Core. Microsoft has just published a new Step by Step guide covering more or less the same instructions as my post. However, Microsoft's document is much more detailed than my introduction. So, if the sore muscles in your fingers are already better, you could continue now with your exploration of Server Core. There is a word document on Microsoft's Download Center and there should be a HTML version on Technet. I wasn't able to find the latter, though. But the link leads to a list of other interesting documentations about Windows Server 2008.

Minor note - if you're building PPC64LE wheels, the manylinux image pinnedby this version isstill on Python 3.9b3, not arelease candidate. We'd advise holding off on distributing 3.9 ppc64le wheelsuntil a subsequent version of cibuildwheel.

The first release candidate of Hibernate ORM 6.2 provides: support for Java records, mapping composite/struct types, and the Jakarta Persistence 3.1 specification; UUID support for MariaDB 10.7 and SQL Server 2008; allow the @SqlInsert, @SqlUpdate, @SqlDelete annotations to refer to a SecondaryTable class; and a new @PartitionKey annotation to identify a field of an entity that holds the partition key of a table.

The second releases candidate of Kotlin 1.8.0 delivers fixes such as: an IllegalStateException upon reading a class that delegates to a Java class with a definitely non-nullable type with a flexible upper bound; an argument for the UseSerializers class does not implement an instance of the KSerializer interface or does not provide serializer for a concrete type; and no mapping for symbol, VALUE_PARAMETER SCRIPT_IMPLICIT_RECEIVER, on the JVM IR backend.

Version 11.0 of Calculate Linux has been released. This release of the Gentoo-based operating system, which we benchmarked last August, brings many improvements to this promising distribution that -- like Sabayon and others -- makes it easier to run Gentoo on desktops and servers.

Last year a new Linux distribution came about and immediately began appearing on some budget PCs within retail establishments. Good OS, the company behind the gOS Linux distribution, that launched the conceptual Google OS last year has had a quite successful 2008. gOS 2.0 Rocket launched in January at the Consumer Electronic Show and then in September was the release of gOS 3.0 Gadgets. Last month gOS also announced their plans on supporting Intel's Moblin project. Today the Good OS crew is announcing plans for their next Linux OS release.

There was no Gentoo 2007.1 release that made it out last year, and we now know for sure that there will be no Gentoo 2008.1 release this year. The Gentoo Release Engineering Team has canceled the Gentoo 2008.1 release that would have otherwise been expected in the next three months. Due to spending increased time on Gentoo 2008.0 and having limited manpower, they've decided to call off Gentoo 2008.1 and future .1 releases.

2007 isn't even over yet, but the Mandriva team already has out the first public beta for Mandriva 2008. Mandriva Linux 2007 (codename: Cassini) is available as a 3 CD free edition without any non-free software included while future releases will be in a hybrid edition. New in Mandriva 2008 will be NTFS write support, AppArmor, modular IDE drivers, new devicescape wireless stack, Compiz Fusion, and the Linux 2.6.22 kernel. More information on Beta 1 is available here.

At Phoronix, SLAX is one of our favorite mini LiveCD Linux distributions. SLAX has always been a wonderful KDE distribution with a very small footprint and is based upon Slackware. Today marks the continued growth of SLAX and the fifth release candidate for SLAX 6.0.0. SLAX 6.0.0 RC5 ships with the Linux kernel, KDE 3.5.7, and other packages have been updated against Slackware 12.0. A variety of fixes are also present in this release. Additional details can be found on the SLAX FTP server.

The second release candidate for Slackware 12.0 was released just days ago but today marks the final release of Slackware 12.0. There was a number of changes in the past few days for Slackware 12.0 i386 which can be read about in the Slackware Change Logs.

The second release candidate for Slackware 12.0 is now available. New in Slackware 12.0-rc2 is a kernel rebuild with an updated configuration file, K3b and Amarok were upgraded to 1.0.2 and 1.4.6 respectively. There were also a number of changes made to udev, pkgtools, and the kernel drivers. All of the changes made for Slackware 12.0-rc2 are available from the Slackware Project change-log.

I then created a local svn mirror and tried using bzr-svn on that repository. Some of these issues are already documented as bugs. Since I'm using the bzr-svn release candidate, I'll document them here anyway. 350c69d7ab
