Opera Next 16 hints at new features

Norwegian browser developer Opera Software has confirmed the switch of its browser development to a rapid release cycle with the launch of Opera Next 16. The new version number comes less than a month after Opera 15 FINAL was released, which saw Opera switch from its own proprietary Presto web engine to the Blink engine used by Google Chrome.

As with all rapid release cycle updates, there are no major overhauls to be found in Opera Next 16, although a number of interesting new features have been showcased as the next iteration starts its journey towards final release.

Opera 16 — which is based on Chromium 29, the engine that powers Chrome 29 (currently in beta) — comes with support for the W3C Geolocation API, a form auto-filler tool and opera:flags, a shortcut to settings that allows adventurous users to play with experimental features.

Users will also find a new setting under Browser > Start Page called “Preload Discover contents”, which allows users to switch this feature off.

Platform-specific updates include support for Jump Lists in Windows 7 and 8, plus the addition of Presentation mode to the Mac platform.

In addition to these existing features, Opera has revealed the next set of features it’s working on, with the promise that early versions of these will be rolled out into the Opera Next build over the next few weeks. These include proper bookmarks support, synchronization via Opera Link, improved tab handling and themes.

Opera Next 16 is considered “alpha” software, which is why — like Firefox Aurora — it’s designed to run alongside an existing stable build of Opera, allowing users to experiment with new features without affecting their day-to-day browsing. Updates are frequent as bugs are discovered and fixed, but users should not attempt to rely on Opera Next as their primary browser, hence the separate installation.

Boost HP Products with Intel Core 4th Generation

JAKARTA – Not to be outdone in the battle gadgets in the year 2013, Hewlett Packard (HP) introduced a series of new products by collaborating with Intel as a supplier of processors. The product line consists of a convertible tablet, the PC Desktop and all in one ones (AIOS), as well as commercial notebook like the HP Elitebook Revolve 850, HP Probook 440, Probook 430, 800 Elitedesk G1, EliteOne 800 G1, G1 and ProDesk 800 HP ProOne 600 G1.

Managing Director of HP Indonesia, Subin Joseph said that these products have been designed specifically for job flexibility. According to him, the range of products it can provide maximum efficiency in terms of creativity, access and enjoy content.

Joseph added all of the line, either desktop or notebook has led HP into higher stages. “Everything we present the latest design and tough. Has automatic sensors to turn off the hard drive in as it fell, so safe,” he said at the launch of HP’s new products at the Intercontinental Hotel Jakarta, Wednesday (24/7).

Latest processor can spoil the user ranging from the battery life to a remarkable breakthrough in terms of graphics,” Yohan lid.

Variabel di Shell Script

In the previous issue we’ve become acquainted with a shell script and managed to create a very simple shell script. If we look, we did not perform any processing on the shell script. We only show a message on the screen and execute commands on the shell through shell script. What if we want to make the program more interactive shell script?

As with any programming language, shell script also serves to recognize the variables that can hold information temporarily for a variety of purposes, for example to compute or determine the output results. You may make as much as possible or use a variable in your shell script. Name the variables are independent, large and small letters should, but make it easier to remember, make it a habit to create standard rules in the manufacture of the variable name. At this writing, all variables will be written in lowercase.

Variables can be divided into two types, namely environment variables and user variables. Environment variables are variables that have been previously determined as a part of the shell used (bash). By default, the name of this variable using all capital letters. Example of this is the $ USER variable that will contain the user name you are currently using, $ HOME home directory which contains the address of the user that is used, and so forth. To display the entire value of an existing environment variable, you can use the set command in the terminal (Figure 1). User variable is the variable name specified by the user themselves and not by the shell used.

Variables can be accessed by using the dollar sign ($) before the variable name, for example, we have a variable named “my name”, to access the value stored in the variable, we use the $ my name. To give value to a variable, we use the sign “=” is immediately followed by the value we give without any spaces, for example my name = Willy. What if the value that we want to give is a sentence? Use double quotes as the opening and closing value of a variable, such as my name = “Willy Sudiarto Raharjo”. For example, see listing 1 and try running on your computer. Seen that the value of the variable Sudiarto be regarded as a command and not part of the variable because it is not enclosed in double quotation marks. Please be careful in giving a value to a variable.

You can combine environment variables and user variables in a shell script is the same, as in listing 2. What if want to write a message using the $ character, such as “It cost me $ 15”? If we are not careful, it could be a shell script would be wrong to interpret the information that we provide and try to take the value of variable 1 (which will not contain any) and display it as a “price 5”. To fix this, use the escape character to indicate that the next character will be recognized as a regular character and not as a substitute

‘Portable’ computer from 1979 wins CNET’s old tech contest

CNET’s From Old School to Tech Cool Contest asked our Facebook fans to share photos of old tech, with the ten most popular qualifying for a chance to win the Panasonic TC-PST60. This plasma TV is a 2013 Editors’ Choice and the only TV to ever receive a 5-star rating from CNET.

Facebook speeds PHP by crafting a PHP virtual machine

Social networking giant Facebook has taken another step at making the PHP Web programming language run more quickly. The company has developed a PHP Virtual Machine that it says can execute the language as much as nine times as quickly as running PHP natively on large systems.

“Our goal is to make PHP run really, really quickly,” said Joel Pobar, a Facebook engineering manager. Facebook has been using the virtual machine, called the HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM), across all of its servers since earlier this year.

Pobar discussed the virtual machine at the O’Reilly Open Source Conference (OSCON) being held this week in Portland, Oregon.

Shares its development tools

HHVM is not Facebook’s first foray into customizing PHP for faster use. PHP is aninterpreted language, meaning that the source code is executed by the processor directly. Generally speaking, programs written in interpreted languages such as PHP tend not to run as quickly as languages, such as C or C++, that have been compiled beforehand into machine language byte code. Facebook has remained loyal to PHP because it is widely understood by many of the Web programmers who work for the company.

To keep up with the insatiable user demand, however, Facebook originally devised a compiler, called HipHop, that would translate PHP code into C++, so it then it could be compiled ahead of time for faster performance.

While Facebook enjoyed considerable performance gains of this first version of HipHop for several years, it sought other ways to speed the delivery of the dynamically created Web pages to its billion or so users. “Our performance strategy for that was going to tap out,” Pobar admitted.

HHVM is the next step for Facebook. Under development for about three years, HHVM actually works on the same principle as the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). HHVM has a just-in-time (JIT) compiler that converts the human readable source code into machine-readable byte code when it is needed. (The previous HipHop, renamed HPHPc, has now been retired within Facebook.)

This JIT approach allows the virtual machine to “make smarter decisions at runtime,” Pobar said. For instance, if a call is made to the MySQL database to read a row of data, the HHVM can, on the fly, figure out what type of data it is, such as an integer or a string. It then can generate or call code on the fly that would be best suited for handling this particular type of data.

With the old HipHop, “the best it can do is analyze the entire Facebook codebase, reason about it and then specialize code based on its reasoning. But it can’t get all of the reasoning right. There are parts of the code base that you can not simply infer about or reason about,” Pobar said.

Virtual system speedier

Pobar estimated that HHVM is about twice as fast as HPHPc was, and about nine times as fast as running straight PHP.

Facebook has posted the code for HHVM on GitHub, with the hopes that others will use it to speed their PHP websites as well.

HHVM is optimized for handling very large, and heavily used, PHP codebases. Pobar reckoned that using HHVM for standard sized websites,

Features ‘Handwriting’ Simplify Use Google Translate

CALIFORNIA – Google is taking the handwriting feature in Google Translate. This feature allows users to write their own posts with hard letters like Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic, and then translated by their gadgets by Google Translate.

Google reveals, this feature is provided for the traveler who currently travel to countries with languages ​​that do not use the letters of the alphabet or has complicated letters.

Can imagine if a British tourist who was a walk to China and see the street names with writing that is not understood. With handwriting input features of Google Translate, its just write or draw a silly row of letters on his smartphone or tablet, and then stay translate into the desired language.

“Handwriting feature allows you to translate phrases, even if you yourself did not know and did not know how to type the character,” said Google product manager, Xiangye Xiao, as reported by CNet.

For example, you see the writing in Chinese characters, but you do not know how to type in the text. With Handwriting feature, you just need to mimic the shape of the piece and then translate it, “she added.

Handwriting feature has been provided by Google in 45 kinds of language that are considered complicated character. Among them are Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Laos, and Greece.
