The ambitious KDevelopment Team has released version 3.4 of KDevelop, a powerful, language-independent, user-friendly integrated development environment—that's not just for programming KDE apps. Version 3.4 is the first new release in more than a year, closing more than 500 bugs and adding several new features. New features include improved Qt 4 support, new debugging capabilities, an enhanced default user interface layout, improvements for C++, and Ruby and PHP support. Official KDevelop packages are available for Kubuntu and OpenSUSE; unofficial builds also are available for other distros. One of our fellow Linux media outlets recently called KDevelop one of the top “killer apps” on the Linux platform.
Although many Web hosting companies let you choose whether to host your Web site on Linux or Windows, Netfirms says it's the first to unite the two platforms under the umbrella of a single account. With its Business and Enterprise lines of hosting accounts, Netfirms has Windows-based applications executed natively on a Windows Server 2003 grid and Linux-based applications natively on a Linux server grid. “The two platforms are unified through proprietary clustered technology”, says Netfirms, “allowing customers to manage both transparently through a single account”. The Netfirms multiplatform server technology offers Windows-based functionality via the Microsoft Hosting Partner Program, including ASP.NET, Classic ASP and Microsoft SQL Server. On the Linux side, the full LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) is available. The two lines encompass a wide range of hosting options depending on the client's needs.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
