Windows Phone 7 goes RTM

Sure, Apple's been stealing most of the blog headlines this afternoon, but Microsoft has some pretty big news of their own. Today, Windows Phone 7 was officially released to manufacturing -- and the boys in Redmond are pretty stoked about it. Microsoft's Terry Myerson certainly sounds pumped in the official blog post. "We've had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters test...

Google cranks up the speed on Google Chrome release cycle

Over at the Chromium blog, there's some good news for Chrome fans... Which is simultaneously bad news for those of you who already think they're getting a little silly with the version numbers. Starting now, Google plans to push a new stable version of Chrome every six weeks. Yes, you read that correctly. Six weeks. That's not set in stone, of course -- build issues and bugs could delay a r...

Firefox 3.6.4 with 'crash protection' released

Stop the press! Mozilla has just released Firefox 3.6.4 -- you can download it by clicking 'Check for Updates' in the Help menu, or by visiting the Firefox website. Firefox 3.6.4 brings crash protection for Adobe Flash, Apple QuickTime and Microsoft Silverlight plug-ins -- under Windows and Linux (Mac will have to wait, it seems).

PDFCreator, following in the aged footsteps of Foobar and VLC, reaches version 1.0

The end of the 21st century's first decade is shaping up to be a period full of portentious software fruition! The year 2008 saw the release of WINE 1.0 after an epic 15 years of development; in 2009, after only 13 years, VLC reached 1.0; and then, earlier this year, Foobar hit 1.0 after a meager 7 years. Today, PDFCreator adds itself to the open source hall of fame, with version 1.0.0 now availa...

Chrome OS set to arrive earlier than expected

At Computex 2010, Google's VP of Product Management Sundar Pichai has been talking Chrome OS. That's a good thing, as we're keen to hear anything official Google has to say about the upcoming release of the cloud-powered operating system.

Is Google getting ready to drop a Chrome OS bomb on WWDC 2010?

Google was pretty clear about their timetable for Chrome OS when they first opened up the Chromium source code last year. It would be just 12 months, they said, until it was ready to be released. Fast forward to today -- Google I/O recently wrapped up, and Chrome OS was given a little time to shine. We got a quick look at the upcoming Web Store and a few native apps (like Lego Star Wars and Pl...

Joomla! 1.5 Beta to be released October 12th

Joomla (formerly Mambo), is set to release its latest, version 1.5 on October 12th, one year to the day that the Joomla team began coding it. Thirty-two "man-years" of work ($1.7 million in wages) have been put into Joomla's 1.5 release. Not bad. Joomla remains one of the most robust and comprehensive content management systems on the market, is open-source and free for the downloading. I have use...
