Linux Newsletter Monthly Summary

by The O'Reilly Network Editors
Linux Newsletter for 01/15/2003

Dear Reader,

In case you missed them the first time around, here are four great articles from the Linux DevCenter in the past month.

Rafael Garcia-Suarez wrote the second article in his Subversion saga, demonstrating Subversion for multi-developer projects. If you're not using source control, it's time to start. (If you are using source control--especially CVS--you ought to take a look at Subversion.)

chromatic attended an independent game developers conference in November. Despite industry consolidation and ever-increasing game complexity, there just may be room for small, focused development teams to carve their own niches. There are also several similarities to open source development. Read more in Return of the Independent Game Developer?.

You might remember Jerry Cooperstein from his excellent article on the competing multithreading implementations for Linux 2.6. He has returned with Linux 2.6 Vanishing Features, examining the evolutionary dead-ends that won't be in 2.6. What got cut? What's changed? Coop has the story.

Daniel Solin's starting to get a reputation for simple-yet-clever hacks. In Generating One-Time URLs with PHP, he outlines a scheme to protect sensitive download materials. With a little creativity, it's easier than you'd expect to do clever things.
