Fedora 21 has been out for quite a while. Usually, I’m among the first ones to upgrade. But this time I am too busy at work. Finally, today, excited! Running:
fedup --network 21 --product=nonproduct
It’s been a year or so since the release of Fedora 20 – an unusually long break which was needed for some restructuring of the project. Finally it’s over and Fedora 21, bright and shiny, is hitting the digital shelves right about now. Go get it!
Electronic Frontier Foundation reports some excellent news:
Today EFF is pleased to announce Let’s Encrypt, a new certificate authority (CA) initiative that we have put together with Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai, IdenTrust, and researchers at the University of Michigan that aims to clear the remaining roadblocks to transition the Web from HTTP to HTTPS.
With a launch scheduled for summer 2015, the Let’s Encrypt CA will automatically issue and manage free certificates for any website that needs them. Switching a webserver from HTTP to HTTPS with this CA will be as easy as issuing one command, or clicking one button.
