You want to see a busy mailing list?

By Doug Schaefer Just check here: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2008-11/threads.htmlI was looking to see when qemu, a very cool virtual machine for many hosts and many target CPU architectures, was going to come out with a new release. As part of that, I was checking to see if it was under active development. Well, with 55 e-mails on November 13'th when I looked,…

Now that’s small.

By Doug Schaefer Just ran into this article on LinuxDevices.com. It talks about a tiny computer that looks like this:That's all there is to it. This ethernet jack has an ARM9 processor in it with 8 MB RAM, 4 MB Flash, and some interfaces that you can hook up electronic devices to. The idea is to add network connectivity to…

Design like you’ll be there in 10 years

By Doug Schaefer I probably blogged about this a long time ago. I remember watching the news conference for the landing of the Mars Spirit rover. I had watched the landing live over the web and remember the jubilation of the team members as they received the first signal alerting to the safe landing. At the news conference one of…

Cross Compiling Fun for EclipseCon

By Doug Schaefer It's been a busy couple of weeks for me as we get our commercial Eclipse p2-based installer into product testing. It's looking good but there's always those last minute fires (i.e. bugs) to fight. In the background I've been trying to set up an environment that will allow me to use the CDT to build Linux applications…

BMW wants to go open

By Doug Schaefer Ian Skerrett, our fine director of Marketing at the Eclipse Foundation, pointed out this article from MotorAuthority.com. BMW apparently is feeling out the market to see if there is an appetite by tier one manufacturers to work together on an open source stack for in-car infotainment systems.The concept BMW has in mind reminds me a lot of…

On the Future of C++

By Doug Schaefer There's been talk for a number of years now on the decline of C++ and the rise of virtual machine and scripting language. But certainly from where I sit, the C/C++ community is still very strong. In fact, I still see many more C applications than C++, especially in the Linux and embedded worlds. Though, everyone agrees,…

OpenGL 3.0 or OpenGL ES 2.0?

By Doug Schaefer First, I have to admit, I'm a newbie at this whole 3D programming world. I watch from a far with a lot of interest but no real experience working in that world. So I apologize ahead of time if this is a stupid question. But I know a lot of CDT users are using the CDT to…

What would I do without CDT

By Doug Schaefer While waiting for my VOBs to sync from Salburg to Ottawa, I thought I'd poke around qemu to figure out exactly what I would need to do to add a PCI device. Apparently, there's very little, if any, documentation on how to do that. And I even saw one response to a similar query that told the…

Another Awesome CDT Summit

By Doug Schaefer I just realize I haven't blogged about our CDT Summit last week. Shame on me, because it was a great three days. It was smaller than previous summits, only 16 people. But this time, we didn't have the guys there that were just lurking in person. Everyone was there representing real Eclipse contributions. So we ended up…
