The GNU nano. Version 4.0!
2019 March 24 - GNU nano 4.0 "Thy Rope of Sands"
#gnu #linux #nano #editor #text #soft #programming #code #news #software
- An overlong line is no longer automatically hard-wrapped.
- Smooth scrolling (one line at a time) has become the default.
- A newline character is no longer automatically added at end of buffer.
- The line below the title bar is by default part of the editing space.
- Option --breaklonglines (-b) turns automatic hard-wrapping back on.
- Option --jumpyscrolling (-j) gives the chunky, half-screen scrolling.
- Option --finalnewline (-f) brings back the automatic newline at EOF.
- Option --emptyline (-e) leaves the line below the title bar unused.
- <Alt+Up> and <Alt+Down> now do a linewise scroll instead of a findnext.
- Any number of justifications can be undone (like all other operations).
- When marked text is justified, it becomes a single, separate paragraph.
- Option --guidestripe= draws a vertical bar at the given column.
- Option --fill= no longer turns on automatic hard-wrapping.
- When a line continues offscreen, it now ends with a highlighted ">".
- The halfs of a split two-column character are shown as "[" and "]".
- A line now scrolls horizontally one column earlier.
- The bindable functions 'cutwordleft' and 'cutwordright' were renamed
- to 'chopwordleft' and 'chopwordright' as they don't use the cutbuffer.
- The paragraph-jumping functions were moved from Search to Go-to-Line.
- Option --rebinddelete is able to compensate for more misbindings.
- Options --morespace and --smooth are obsolete and thus ignored.
- The --disable-wrapping-as-root configure option was removed.

The world’s first genderless voice assistant is challenging gender stereotypes
There’s an obvious gender imbalance in technology and voice assistants. Whether it’s Siri, Cortana, Alexa, or another female voice telling you when to turn right on Google Maps, it’s most commonly an AI ‘woman’ who takes our commands.
With so much female servitude in our smart devices, along with the rapid deployment of AI, it should come as no surprise that technology is hardwiring sexism into our future — but Q, the world’s first genderless voice, hopes to eradicate gender bias in technology.
Created by a group of linguists, technologists, and sound designers, Q hopes to “end gender bias” and encourage “more inclusivity in voice technology.” They recorded the voices of two dozen people who identify as male, female, transgender, or non-binary in search for a voice that typically “does not fit within male or female binaries.” To find this voice, the Q team conducted a test involving over 4,600 people, who were asked to rate the voice on a scale of 1 (male) to 5 (female).
From this experiment, audio researchers were able to define a frequency range which is gender neutral. They recorded several voices, working on the pitch, the tone and the format filter and finally achieved “Q.”
Despite the underrepresentation of women in AI development, it’s no coincidence that almost all voice assistants are given typically female names, such as Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Apple’s Siri. According to several studies, regardless of the listener’s gender, people typically prefer to hear a male voice when it comes to authority, but prefer a female voice when they need assistance.
While a genderless voice is a step in the right direction towards inclusivity, technology cannot progress and move away from gender bias without diversity in creative and leadership roles. Gendered voice assistants reinforce deeply ingrained gender biases because the data being used in machine learning training is based upon human behavior — robots are only sexist because the humans they learn from are.
Q is not only challenging gender stereotypes, but also encouraging tech companies to take societal responsibility when it comes to diversity and inclusivity.

NetworkManager-1.16: Add support for WireGuard VPN tunnels and Wi-Fi Direct connections (Wi-Fi P2P).
============================================= NetworkManager-1.16 Overview of changes since NetworkManager-1.14 ============================================= This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include: * Check connectivity per address family. * Support "main.systemd-resolved" to let NetworkManager configure DNS settings in systemd-resolved without making it the main DNS plugin of NetworkManager. * Write "/var/run/NetworkManager/no-stub-resolv.conf" with original nameservers. That is useful with caching DNS plugins like "systemd-resolved" or "dnsmasq" where "/var/run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf" refers to localhost. * Change default "ipv4.dhcp-client-id" setting for the internal DHCP plugin from "duid" to "mac". This is a change in behavior on upgrade when using the internal DHCP plugin (unless the default is overwritten in "NetworkManager.conf" or specified per connection profile). * Improve handling of DHCP router options with internal DHCP plugin. For one, accept multiple routers and add a default-route to each. On D-Bus expose the original DNS and NTP servers without cleaning up local nameservers. * Allow binding a connections lifetime to the DBus client that activated it. * Add support for establishing Wi-Fi Direct connections (Wi-Fi P2P). * Add support for WireGuard VPN tunnels to NetworkManager. D-Bus API and libnm support all options. nmcli supports creating and managing WireGuard profiles, with the exception of configuring and showing peers. * Add initrd generator to be used by dracut and use it as new way of handling iBFT. * Deprecated "plugins.monitor-connection-files" setting in NetworkManager.conf. This option will have no effect in future versions. * Add AP and Ad-hoc support for iwd Wi-Fi backend. * Warn about invalid settings in "NetworkManager.conf". * Support announcing "ANDROID_METERED" DHCP option for shared mode. * Support SAE authentication as used for 802.11s Meshing and WPA3-Personal. * NetworkManager is no longer installed as D-Bus activatable service. * Mark docker bridges as unmanaged via udev rule. * Add new PolicyKit permission "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wifi.scan" for controlling Wi-Fi scanning.

WireGuard in NetworkManager
NetworkManager 1.16 got native support for WireGuard VPN tunnels (NEWS). WireGuard is a novel VPN tunnel protocol and implementation that spawned a lot of interest. Here I will not explain how WireGuard itself works. You can find very good documentation and introduction at wireguard.com.MORE at Gnome.org (config examples, settings, etc.):

I was walking back home when saw this #cat #randomly appear and start rubbing itself against the sidewalk.
I started #playing with it, then after a few minutes an elderly lady appeared and told me that the cat had been following her for a while.
We talked about what a #cute cat it was, how #soft its #fur was, what a #nice cat it was, how neither of us knew whose owner it was and the slight possiblity it might get run over...
then the old lady went on her way and the cat got bored and went off to do something else...
