With many closely tuning into our NVIDIA 1.0-8751 and GeForce 7600/7900 coverage, its a good time to remind all of you that the latest-and-greatest Phoronix news is available via RSS (Really Simple Syndication). There are two independent channels, one for our Linux news (in this area entitled "Linux News", which you are reading right now) and then one for all of our official articles when it comes to software and hardware. The two RSS feeds can be viewed from here. Tuning into both of these channels will ensure the latest Linux hardware/software news available. We are also in the process of looking for additional web-servers and related web offerings in order to expand our Linux reach and free content. If you happen to own a data center or hosting firm feel free to shoot us an email. As always, we welcome any contributions from our readers whether it be a monetary donation (100% of which is used to help cover operating expenses of Phoronix.com; PayPal accepted) or simply a few words of feedback. Alternatively, we also accept freelance editorials and related articles from our open-source audience. Any questions or comments can be directed to our contact page.
With the improved news integration at Phoronix, with our re-vamped site layout that had premiered last week, we have created a new RSS channel. The Phoronix Hardware/Software Linux News can now be obtained through RSS (Really Simple Syndication) using http://www.phoronix.com/rss/rss_news.php. As always, our Phoronix article feed will remain active at http://www.phoronix.com/rss/rss.php. For those unfamiliar with RSS, more information is available at Wikipedia.
Another week has passed us by, and for this upcoming week, we will have a thorough performance look at the latest version of Cedega (v5.1) that was recently released as well as a performance look at Fedora Core 4/Fedora Core 5. In addition, we will have our usual wobble of hardware previews and reviews. However, for this past week we began with a look at the DFI Infinity nForce4 Ultra. This motherboard boasts a single PCI Express x16 interface, Socket 939 with support for AMD Athlon 64 X2 and Opteron 100 processors, and a host of DFI innovations that have been adopted from their LAN Party series. As the week before we had a article on AMD's Cool 'n' Quiet, we proceeded with an Enhanced Intel SpeedStep (EIST) investigation. Certainly the technology from Geyserville and original SpeedStep have improved to make the mobile computing experience, as well as desktops, more pleasurable. On the software side of things, we had covered Nexuiz v1.5 and Berry Linux v0.67. This morning, we also posted a plethora of screenshots from a fresh compilation of GNOME v2.14 (v2.13.91) that was built from Fedora Core 5 Rawhide. Ending things off, this week we also launched our new Phoronix site interface.
Over the last several months we at Phoronix have been working on a massive revision to the site. Well, today's the day, and everything should be set to roll! In addition to an entirely revamped layout, much of the code-base for our core content management system and back-end has been cleaned up, along with the initial formation for some new site features which we hope to roll out in the very near future. The color scheme has also been revamped, while keeping the same overall effect, as well as several other graphical improvements. As far as the browser compatibility goes, the site has been thoroughly tested under Mozilla Firefox v1.0.7/v1.5.0 as well as Epiphany and Konqueror. Under Macintosh OS X, we used Safari and for Windows there are several versions of Opera (including v9.0 Tech Preview 2) and Internet Explorer. We can report at this time that all of the bugs should be worked out of the interface except for a small glitch (left adjustment) in Internet Explorer v6.0 and Opera v8.2 also experiences a font adjustment flaw in some configurations. The site configuration is also optimized for users running at 1280 x 1024. However, this latest revision also corrects several long-standing bugs with the previous site when running at higher resolutions. As of today, all Phoronix.com pages should be synced up with the new site layout, and every page should be in working order. Some areas of the site, however, will experience a few additional tweaks and modifications throughout the end of the week. However, we also invite feedback from our readers as well as any display problems you may have experienced when viewing the website (contact page). For reference here is the intended interface for this new layout.
