SMPlayer

SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can also play YouTube videos. One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave… don’t worry, when you open that movie again it will be resumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume… SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winning MPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats. But apart from providing access for the most common and useful options of MPlayer, SMPlayer adds other interesting features like the possibility to play YouTube videos subtitles. Note: for those people complaining about malware in the windows installer: be sure you download SMPlayer from the official website. Our installer is completely safe and free of malware.

Rational Software Architect Real-Time Edition

Date Created: Fri, 2017-01-27 08:23Date Updated: Mon, 2017-01-30 07:24IBMSubmitted by: Elena Strabykina

Rational Software Architect Real-Time Edition (RSARTE) is an Eclipse-based modeling and development environment for creating event-driven real-time applications. It supports the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and its real-time profile (UML-RT).

A typical RSARTE user is either a software designer – who designs and implements real-time software applications; or a system analyst - who specifies, analyzes, and documents the behavior of a real-time software application.

Key functionality:

Model-based C/C++ development

RSA RTE provides a model-based design environment where the UML models are tightly integrated with the Eclipse CDT development environment. It gives developers the UML level abstractions like state machines and events while at the same time enabling C++ level features from CDT. At the core of the functionality is the ability to transform a UML model into an executable real-time application. This process, which we refer to as "building the model", consists of the following steps:

  1. A subset of the model is transformed to C++ code.
  2. A CDT project and a makefile is generated. CDT features can now also be used to edit and modify the application.
  3. A make tool is launched to build the generated code using the makefile.

There are two ways of building a model; interactive build from within the RSARTE user interface, and batch build from command line or scripts.

Model-based analysis of applications

In addition to the code level functionality RSA RTE is a feature-rich UML modeling tool, with easy to use diagram editors and properties customizable to include only elements needed for modeling of real-time systems. RSA RTE supports all main UML diagrams to give the development team all possibilities to understand and communicate the architecture of the application under development.

Support for large scale agile teams

RSA RTE is used both by small teams and by large organizations where many developers collaborate on the same code base. To ensure a streamlined workflow RSA RTE integrates tightly with Git (via a customized EGit/JGit integration) and other source code management systems. A key aspect of this integration is a focus on compare and merge functionality. RSA RTE provides dedicated editors that are used during interactive compare or merge sessions where it is possible to analyze model changes on different levels proving visual and hierarchical representations, with possibilities to do conflict resolution and focus on special areas using sub-merging. The compare/merge tool is both available inside the Eclipse IDE for interactive usage and from the command line without GIU to integrate with build and integration scripts.

More details on RSARTE functionality can be found here.

RSARTE integrates out of the box with Eclipse Git, but can also be used with other version control systems (for instance, IBM Rational ClearCase).

RSARTE can be installed on top of Eclipse Neon (RSARTE version 10.1) and Mars (RSARTE version 10.0).

The development team is constantly improving RSARTE and we release new features and fixes approximately every 3d week. You can learn more about release schedule and the latest improvements from RSARTE wiki page.

It is possible to request free evaluation version of RSARTE by mailing to rsarte@se.ibm.com providing company or personal name.

More product information can be found on the RSARTE page.

Google Summer of Code 2016 wrap-up: QEMU

Google Open Source Blog - Mon, 01/23/2017 - 18:00

This post is part of a series of guest posts from students, mentors and organization administrators reflecting on Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2016.




QEMU is a machine emulator and virtualizer. It can run operating systems and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC).  It is also used by hypervisors like KVM and Xen to virtualize x86, ARM, POWER and other architectures so virtual machines can run at near-native performance.

This year was QEMU's sixth time participating in Google Summer of Code and we had 6 students from around the world. Here are highlights from GSoC 2016:

Pranith Kumar worked on Multi-threaded TCG, a larger effort to make QEMU's just-in-time compiler multi-core friendly. He studied the memory ordering CPU instructions for many architectures supported by QEMU and devised a TCG opcode that can represent the memory ordering semantics. His patches allow TCG to correctly translate memory ordering instructions (previously they were ignored!). This is one piece of the puzzle to support multi-threaded translation and will help emulation scale to many cores. Pranith also contributed to testing and debugging multi-threaded TCG issues that he encountered while contributing to this cutting-edge part of QEMU.

Gerard Garcia worked on packet capture support for AF_VSOCK in Linux, tcpdump and Wireshark. QEMU recently gained support for the virtio-vsock device that allows socket communication between guest and host. The AF_VSOCK address family didn't support packet capture yet, making it hard to debug and observe communication between applications. Gerard’s patches implement the kernel interfaces and tcpdump/Wireshark functionality needed to monitor traffic over AF_VSOCK. This project was challenging because it required getting code merged in multiple open source projects. Gerard pulled it off with great skill!

Every year QEMU applies to participate in GSoC and we’re delighted for the opportunity to mentor students interested in systems programming, emulation, compilers and low-level code like firmware. You are welcome to get in touch on IRC or our mailing lists any time of the year to find out about contributing to QEMU. We also have a wiki page with small tasks you can get started on as your first step in QEMU programming.

We’re heading into the 13th year of Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and are now accepting applications for open source organizations. GSoC is a global program that gets student developers involved as open source contributors. Students spend three months working under the guidance of mentors on projects to expand and improve open source software.

Last year we had 178 open source organizations and 1,200 students participate. Open source organizations include open source projects and the umbrella organizations that often serve as their fiscal sponsors.



Do you represent a free or open source software organization? Are you seeking new contributors? (Of course!) Do you love the challenge and reward of mentoring new developers in your community? Apply to be a mentor organization for Google Summer of Code! Starting today we are accepting applications from open source projects who would like to serve as mentor organizations for enthusiastic student developers.

The deadline to apply is February 9 at 16:00 UTC. Organizations chosen for GSoC 2017 will be posted on February 27.

Please visit the program site for more information on how to apply, a detailed timeline of important deadlines and general program information. We also encourage you to check out the Mentor Manual and join the discussion group. You can also learn more by exploring our series of guest posts written by mentor organizations who participated in GSoC 2016.

Best of luck to all of the applicants!
