30 Jan 2014 New Version of LibreOffice - 4.2 [34672]
Focusing On Performance And Interoperability, And Improving The Integration With Microsoft Windows

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2, a new major release targeted to early adopters and another significant step forward for the best free office suite ever. LibreOffice 4.2 features a large number of performance and interoperability improvements targeted to users of all kinds, but particularly appealing for power and enterprise users. In addition, it is better integrated with Microsoft Windows.

Calc has gone through the largest code refactoring ever, giving major performance wins for big data (especially when calculating cell values, and importing large and complex XLSX spreadsheets), while an optional new formula interpreter enables massively parallel calculation of formula cells using the GPU via OpenCL. The latter works best with a Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) such as the new AMD Kaveri APU.

by Suk Kim, Oracle ACE Director

Oracle Solaris 11 is a cloud operating system that is very powerful. Using Oracle Solaris 11, you will be able to provide various services. For example, it is possible to create storage that can be utilized by AjaXplorer, which provides Web-based access to files.

If you'd like to download software, participate in forums, and get access to other technical how-to goodies in addition to content like this, become an OTN member. No spam! This article describes a PHP-based open source solution that uses AjaXplorer, Oracle Solaris 11.1, and Apache Web server (although other Web servers can be used) to build a cloud-based storage service that is similar to Dropbox.

Of course, you can also build the storage in the same way using AjaXplorer with other operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. However, when using Oracle Solaris 11.1, you will be able to configure the storage in a more powerful and secure way by taking advantage of ZFS.

After you implement the solution described in this article, you will be able to use any Web browser to access the Web-based storage. In addition, you can use apps on Android and Apple iOS smartphones and tablets to access the storage...

Detlef Drewanz Discusses Installation and Employment

In part 6 of an eight-part series Detlef Drewanz writes about "Oracle VM VirtualBox - Personal Desktop Virtualization" describing Oracle VM VirtualBox and its uses. Oracle VM VirtualBox requires an already-running host operating system on top of which it can be installed. Following installation one can simultaneously run multiple guest operating systems inside Oracle VM VirtualBox using multiple virtual machines (VMs). Oracle VM VirtualBox consists of three parts: the base software package; guest additions; and extension packs. Drewanz next addresses how data can be transferred to and from the guests through external iSCSI storage, with shared folders from the host or via network services.
