A revised GCC runtime library exception

The Free Software Foundation has posted a revised version of the new GCC runtime library exception. There's no description of the changes, but the new text is short and easy to read. Essentially, it seems to specifically equate Java virtual machine code with human-readable languages, meaning that Java byte code can be processed through GCC and still link against the runtime library.

Education and Certification

"Advanced Scientific Programming in Python" Summer School in Berlin

The Advanced Scientific Programming in Python Summer School will be held in Berlin, Germany from August 31 - September 4, 2009. "Many scientists spend much of their time writing, debugging, and maintaining software. But while techniques for doing this efficiently have been developed, only few scientists actually use them. As a result, they spend far too much time writing deficient code and reinventing the wheel instead of doing research. In this course we present a selection of advanced programming techniques with theoretical lectures and practical exercises tailored to the needs of the programming scientist."

The recordings include a talk given by Samba's Jeremy Allison on Microsoft and its relationship with the free software community, and Gnash developer Rob Savoye announcing the Cygnal project -- a rich media server with features roughly compatible with the Flash Media Server. Two members of the autonomo.us group, Evan Prodromou and FSF director Mako Hill, spoke about efforts to engineer for free network services and the successful launch of the micro-blogging service identi.ca."
