Plans for Release After GRUB 2.06

  • GRUB 2.06 is out - what next?
    Hi all,
    
    As you may saw the GRUB 2.06 is out! This means, among others, code
    unfreeze... :-) I am going to start reviewing all the patches which are
    lingering in my mailbox since 2020 in July (yeah, this year if somebody
    wants to ask ;-) ). I will be going backwards. So, I will be looking at
    the latest patches first. If you think some patches are more important
    than others please reply to this email. I will try to take your voice
    into account. I hope I will be able to clear whole backlog by the end of
    this year. Of course your help is appreciated. Especially if you feel
    you are able to review a given set of patches. This should offload me
    a bit. In parallel I will be looking at the new patches which will be
    posted on the grub-devel. This way we should avoid new backlog in the
    future...
    
    Additionally, I will be working on improving the GRUB governance,
    testing, etc. This, of course, requires a lot of help from you too. So,
    expect I will be approaching you directly in the following months and
    asking for help in this and that...
    
    Last but not least, you may expect next release in first half of 2022.
    
    Stay tuned...
    
    Daniel
    
  • GRUB 2.06 To Be Succeeded By... GRUB 2.11 Bootloader Next Year - Phoronix

    Following this week's release of the big and long overdue GRUB 2.06 bootloader release, there is already development talk and action for the next release. Succeeding GRUB 2.0, GRUB 2.02, GRUB 2.04, and GRUB 2.06 is now going to be a bit of a version shakeup with GRUB 2.11 to be the next release.

    It seems after these GRUB 2.xx releases over the past few years, they have now decided they don't like version numbers with leading zeros as some scripts are apparently still having problems dealing with them.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
