== General Community News ==

=== Ubuntu Scribes Team formed ===

Jeremy Austin-Bardo (Ausimage) and Chris Oattes (Seeker`) have formed the
Ubuntu Scribes Team. This team will work to improve the process of
publishing timely and effective summaries of Ubuntu-related meetings. They
are planning a meeting for February 5th, 2007, at 8 PM UTC in
#ubuntu-meeting. Anyone interested in sharing his/her ideas or helping
should drop by.

=== Ubuntu Support Team ===

The Support Team focuses on providing free support to Ubuntu users. Ubuntu
is gaining users every day, and they will probably need help at some point.
Another goal is organizing the support so that users can get quality help
fast. The team will work to identify common usability problems in Ubuntu.

To get involved, join the team on Launchpad at
http://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-helpteam. See also the mailing list at

=== Ubuntu IRC Channels Statistics ===

UbuntuStats is a project led by Tiago Faria (gouki) and aims to create IRC
channel statistics parsed from IRSSI logs. The project's HQ is located at
http://www.UbuntuStats.HomeLinux.org and is currently monitoring 17 Ubuntu
related channels.

=== Ubuntu Wiki Weekend ===

First initiated by K.Mandla on Ubuntuforums (
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=319989), another special Wiki
Weekend was held on January 20th and 21st, 2007, to improve the currency of
Ubuntu documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WikiTeam/WikiWeekend

Keep up with what has been going on here:

The Documentation Team still needs your help on a daily basis. To
contribute, please read the WikiGuide, and contact the Documentation Team on
IRC (irc.freenode.net) at #ubuntu-doc or on the mailing list at

== LoCo News ==

=== Newly Approved Teams ===

At the Community Council meeting on January 9th, 2007, the Canadian and
Iranian teams were accepted as official locoteams. Welcome aboard, guys and

=== Ubuntu-Tamil tackle KDE ===

The Ubuntu Tamil Team has undertaken an effort to translate KDE into the
Tamil language. Sri Ramadoss M wrote to the LoCo Contacts Mailing List to
announce the following: "Glad to share with you all that we have taken the
responsibility of KDE translation to Tamil. So as far as KDE is concerned
the upstream - downstream problem is now resolved to a greater extent." See
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/loco-contacts/2007-January/000994.html for
the announcement.

=== US LoCo Consistency ===

The US LoCo Teams are currently working towards creating a standard for LoCo
Team naming within the United States. Currently team boundaries consist of
conglomerates of states, individual states, cities and even suburbs. This
current structure can be confusing when it comes to the naming of teams.
Suggestions have also been made to rearrange teams into a per-state
structure with chapters. More information will follow as discussion
continues and decisions are made. You can read up on the discussion so far
at https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/loco-contacts/2007-January/000996.html.

== Changes In Feisty ==

Thunar is a modern file manager for the Xfce Desktop Environment. Thunar has
been designed from the ground up to be fast and easy-to-use. Its user
interface is clean and intuitive, fast and responsive with fast startup time
and directory load time. A new version has entered Feisty, Thunar 0.5.0,
that includes improvements to removable device management, translations and
more extensive documentation.

Lybniz is an easy to use mathematical function graph plotter using pyGTK. In
version 1.3-1, more documentation, minor bug fixes, under-the-hood changes
(many for PEP8 conformance), and internationalization support were added.

BibleTime is a Bible Study application for KDE 3.x and provides a simple to
use but powerful user interface. Major improvements have been made to the
search capability, and old leftover code that caused problems has been
removed. The current version is 1.6.2.

Dovecot is an open source IMAP and POP3 server for Linux/UNIX-like systems
written with security in mind. Dovecot works with standard mbox and Maildir
formats, and it's fully compatible with UW-IMAP and Courier IMAP servers'
implementations of them as well as with mail clients accessing the mailboxes
directly. Dovecot 1.0.rc17 has been added to Feisty with many bug fixes.

The Smart Package Manager project has the ambitious objective of creating
smart and portable algorithms for solving adequately the problem of managing
software upgrades and installation. This tool works in all major
distributions and will bring notable advantages over native tools currently
in use (APT, APT-RPM, YUM, URPMI, etc.). The Smart 0.50~rc1 release has a
load of bug fixes, small improvements, and one huge feature that was being
planned for a long time. Smart 0.50~rc1 now integrates changes in the
transaction algorithm that make it able to survive massive
whole-distribution upgrades with good results and in acceptable timings!

Sonata is a lightweight GTK+ music client for the Music Player Daemon (MPD).
It aims to be efficient (no toolbar, main menu, or statusbar),
user-friendly, and clean.  Sonata 1.9-1 has improved artwork support by
checking if it exists on disk before fetching it, has added stream support,
now allows specifying search terms for remote album art, and has additional

ScanErrLog 2.01 is a Python module that allows you to parse Apache error_log
files and present their data in decreasing occurrence order of error
messages. This is particularly useful if you want to quickly solve the most
annoying problems Web visitors encounter on your site. It also includes
minor tweaks and bug fixes.

pyNeighborhood is a GUI frontend for samba tools such as smbclient,
smbmount, etc. It's written in Python and uses the GTK+ 2 toolkit with pyGTK
implementation. It's used as an SMB network browser for Linux and X11.
pyNeighborhood 0.4, packaged by Cody A.W. Somerville, introduces GUI
improvements, features an improved share-scanning algorithm and group
browsing using "msbrowse", and contains other bug fixes.

Pure-FTPd is a free, secure, production-quality and standards-conformant FTP
server. It doesn't provide useless bells and whistles but focuses on
efficiency and ease of use. It provides simple answers to common needs, plus
unique useful features for personal users as well as hosting providers.
Pure-FTPd 1.0.2 now has UTF-8 support and client-to-fs charset conversions.
Large files are supported by default. OPTS MLST and SITE UTIME commands have
been implemented. Pure-FTPd 1.0.21 is probably the release with the best
performance ever: Thanks to some network optimizations, there have been huge
performance improvements while transferring many small files.

OpenSync is a synchronization framework that is platform- and
distribution-independent. It consists of a powerful sync-engine and several
plugins that can be used to connect to devices. OpenSync is very flexible
and capable of synchronizing any type of data, including contacts,
calendars, tasks, notes and files. OpenSync 0.19 now runs each plugin as a
separate process, adds a VCalendar converter, improves the ICalendar
converter, and adds support for a wide range of applications and devices.

Fetchmail is a full-featured, robust, well-documented remote mail retrieval
and forwarding utility intended to be used over on-demand TCP/IP links (such
as SLIP and PPP connections). It supports every remote mail protocol in use
on the Internet: POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all flavors of IMAP, ETRN,
and ODMR. It even supports IPv6 and IPSEC. Fetchmail 6.3.6 fixes two
security issues: a password disclosure vulnerability and a denial of service

Doodle is a desktop search engine for Linux. It searches your hard drive for
files using pattern matching on metadata. It extracts file format-specific
metadata, allowing the index to be searched rapidly. It is similar to locate
but can take advantage of information such as ID3 tags. Doodle 0.6.6 fixes a
bug on big-endian systems and an error in handling empty metadata entries.
It also adds support for pkg-config.

gwhois is a generic whois client (and server) that strives to know the right
server to query for each and every top level domain (TLD) and IP address.
The gwhois 20070112 release adds a method to make multiple lookups for the
same query. This is needed for the .vg TLD, which provides different
(complementing) data through whois vs. the Web interfaces.

Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with
command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design
from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry "Track" design competition.
Roundup 1.2.1 is a minor bug fix release.

CapiSuite is an ISDN telecommunication suite providing easy-to-use
telecommunication functions that can be controlled from Python scripts. It
uses a CAPI-compatible driver for accessing the ISDN-hardware. CapiSuite
0.4.5 fixes some important bugs in the stable 0.4.x branch, whose bugs are
now (hopefully) fixed. Some changes were made necessary by new versions of
external tools and libraries.

Pathological is an enriched clone of the game "Logical" by Rainbow Arts. To
solve a level, fill each wheel with four marbles of matching color. Various
board elements such as teleporters, switches, filters, etc., make the game
interesting and challenging. The Pathological 1.1.3 release is a small bug
fix and polish release.

Duplicity backs up directories by producing encrypted tar-format volumes and
uploading them to a remote or local file server. Because duplicity uses
librsync, the incremental archives are space-efficient and only record the
parts of files that have changed since the last backup. Duplicity 0.4.2 adds
a few user-submitted patches to fix a few bugs.

ReleaseForge is an open source utility designed for the administrators and
release engineers of SourceForge projects. ReleaseForge allows you to easily
create new SourceForge project releases and edit existing releases in a
quicker and friendlier manner than the SourceForge web interface.
ReleaseForge 1.1 contains a fix for a bug introduced in 1.0 that occurred
when creating a new release. Additionally, a "Re-Guess" feature was added to
effortlessly reset all file attributes when editing an existing release.

MySQL Query Browser is a visual tool for creating, executing, and optimizing
SQL queries for your MySQL Database Server. The MySQL Query Browser gives
you a complete set of drag-and-drop tools to visually build, analyze, and
manage your queries. MySQL Query Browser 1.2.5beta fixes errors on 64-bit
arches when connecting to pre-MySQL 5.x.

PHPSysInfo is a customizable PHP Script that parses /proc and formats
information nicely. It will display information about system facts like
Uptime, CPU, Memory, PCI devices, SCSI devices, IDE devices, Network
adapters, Disk usage, and more. PHPSysInfo 2.5.2 is a bug fix release.

LightTPD is a webserver with focus on security, speed, compliance, and
flexibility. It has a small memory footprint compared to other webservers,
effective management of the cpu-load, and an advanced feature set (FastCGI,
CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more). LightTPD
1.4.13solves a few longstanding bugs, and a general polish has been

GNU Radio is a collection of software that, when combined with minimal
hardware, allows the construction of radios where the actual waveforms
transmitted and received are defined by software. The GNU Radio
3.0.2release is a minor bug fix release. Automake
1.10 is now supported, and a few missing files were added to the

soundKonverter is a frontend developed for the KDE desktop to various audio
converters. It is extensible via plugins and supports a large range of
backends. soundKonverter 0.3 is a major release involving big makeovers like
CD ripping, tagging support, basic support for hybrid compression, and
general GUI cleanup.

Marble is meant to be a generic geographical map widget. It shows the earth
as a sphere but doesn't make use of any hardware acceleration (NO OpenGL).
So although it might look similar to professional applications like Google
Earth or Nasa World Wind it's rather meant to be a lightweight multipurpose
widget for KDE. For more information about Marble, see

ClamTk is a GUI front-end for ClamAV using gtk2-perl. It is designed to be
an easy-to-use frontend for Linux systems. Version 2.27, uploaded by Daniel
Holbach, includes new artwork, minor GUI enhancements, additional
translations, the ability to select multiple files with the "scan file"
option, improvements to stop functionality, and numerous other tweaks.

Catfish, a new package to Feisty, is a handy file searching tool for Linux
and UNIX. Basically, it is a frontend that provides a unified interface for
different search engines (daemons). The interface is intentionally
lightweight and simple, using only GTK+ 2. You can configure it to your
needs by using several command line options. Supported backends are
currently find, (s)locate, doodle, tracker and beagle. 0.1, packaged by Cody
A.W. Somerville, is the first stable release and includes numerous bug fixes
and UI improvements.

SQLite is a small C library that implements a self-contained, embeddable,
zero-configuration SQL database engine. Version 3.3.10 includes the
following changes: Fix bugs in the implementation of the new
sqlite3_prepare_v2() API that can lead to segfaults; Fix 1-second round-off
errors in the strftime() function; Enhance the windows OS layer to provide
detailed error codes; Work around a win2k problem so that SQLite can use
single-character database file names; Correctly set user_version and
schema_version pragma column names in the result set; Update documentation.

IceWM is a window manager for the X Window System. The goal of IceWM is
speed, simplicity, and not getting in the user's way. IceWM 1.2.30 changes
include battery status cleanups, a new option (BatteryPollingPeriod), a bug
fix for focus after minimizing all windows, a migration of Themes selection
to the Settings menu, an addition of Settings -> Focus menu (config saved to
~/.icewm/focus_mode as FocusMode=1,2 or 0), a bug fix for the startMinimized
window option, and the new settings MapInactiveOnTop (default 1) and
RequestFocusOnAppRaise (when FocusOnAppRaise=0).

== In The Press ==

=== Linux Magazine names Canonical Ltd. as one of the top 20 companies to
watch in 2007 ===

Canonical Ltd. announced that it has been named one of the 'Top 20 Companies
to Watch in 2007' by Linux Magazine. Canonical was selected as one of the
companies best positioned in the coming year to spur Linux and Open Source
adoption while delivering on the immediate needs of the marketplace.

For more information, see

=== Kubuntu at World Social Forum ===

Kubuntu was on hand at the World Social Forum in Nairobi, according to
allAfrica.com.  Windows was banned and all the conference's machines were
running GNU/Linux. "Participants attending WSF say that this was a gesture
done as a way of promoting the free social movement at the same time also as
a way of fighting Microsoft's 'imperialistic tendencies.'"  The
International South Group Network distributed Kubuntu CDs.

=== OSDL 2006 Desktop Linux Client Survey ===

Each year the OSDL's (now part of the new Linux Foundation) Desktop Linux
Working Group conducts a survey of how and why Linux is and isn't being used
on the Desktop in various deployment situations.  The purpose of this survey
is to identify both technical and social barriers to Linux adoption as well
as the key factors and trends driving current adoption.  Among the more
general findings were that application availability was the leading barrier
- but not in terms of a lack of applications generally, moreso the lack of
the particular applications people have grown accustomed to, and that
factors pushing deployment were cost savings and that drivers for wireless
and printing had improved, among other technical points.

Of particular interest for the Ubuntu community is question #6, "Which Linux
Distributions is your organization running on the desktop?"  In this section
Ubuntu was named in 1280 responses - a whopping 49%!  Other notable ones on
the list were of course OpenSUSE/SLED, Fedora/RHEL, Debian, and Gentoo.  So,
way to go everybody for making Ubuntu awesome enough for that widespread
acceptance, and we look forward to continuing progress and gains for both
Ubuntu and Linux in general in next year's survey.

=== Feature of the Week: Gnome Control Center ===

Gnome Control Center (g-c-c) is a centralized interface containing a variety
of configuration applets ("capplets") for changing system settings and
preferences, similar to KDE's KControl, Mac OS's System Preferences, and the
MS Windows Control Panel.  It includes such things as accessibility
configuration, desktop fonts, keyboard and mouse properties, sound setup,
desktop theme and background, user interface properties, and screen
resolution, among other things.  It is currently maintained in Ubuntu by the
Ubuntu Core Development team.

While traditionally GNOME has employed the cascading System > Preferences /
Administration, g-c-c provides an intuitive interface to the above settings
without cluttering the menus as much.  This has advantages and
disadvantages, namely that it takes an extra click to launch an applet when
opening g-c-c first, but is, for many, more comfortable aesthetically.  In
the newest version, it also categorizes applets and has a search filter to
help locate the one you want.

Gnome Control Center is available on all supported versions of Ubuntu, but
in various forms.  Here is a glance at what it looks like in Edgy:


If you would like to add it to your system, install the gnome-control-center
package with your favorite package management application.

Now, g-c-c has also been given a bit of a face-lift in more recent
developments.  As noted before, the version in Feisty has a slightly
different interface layout and some extra features, making it significantly
more usable.  Currently, Feisty has Gnome Control Center rather than the old
menu layout by default.  Here's a sneak peak of what things look like as of
Herd 2:


If you're testing Feisty, this could be a fun item to watch, and if not,
you're in for a pleasant change if you upgrade in April.  Someone (goes by
luna6) wrote a review of the version in Herd 2, and notably included a slew
of fabulous screenshots, which you can check out at
http://lunapark6.com/?p=2728 if you're curious.
