And in light of KeepPass getting an audit by the EU, we ask our Virtual LUG to sound off on the projects they’d audit if given the means & why.

Plus great updates from all around open source & the Starbound server challenge!

Surround 360 is now open source

Today we officially open-sourced the specs for Surround 360, our high-quality 3D-360 hardware and software video capture system. The open source project includes the hardware camera design and software stitching code that makes end-to-end 3D-360 video capture possible in one system — from shooting to video processing.

We believe making the camera design and stitching code freely available on GitHub will accelerate the growth of the 3D-360 ecosystem — developers will be able to leverage the code, and content creators can use the camera in their productions. Anyone will be able to contribute to, build on top of, improve, or distribute the camera based on these specs.

OpenBSD 6.0 tightens security by losing Linux compatibility

ost significant among the latest security-related changes for OpenBSD is the removal of Linux emulation support.
