Linux Weekly News

Starting in September, Chrome will stop auto-playing Flash ads
Google has announced that, beginning September 1, Chrome will no longer auto-play Flash-based ads in the company's popular AdWords program. The post frames this as a move to improve browsing performance for users, and notes that most Flash ads are automatically converted to HTML5 already. Commenting on the news, The Register notes that the change should also offer some additional protection against malware delivered via Flash. Chrome will continue to auto-play Flash content in the main body of pages, however. The Register's story says the change is, in fact, just a modification of the default setting for plugin behavior, which already supports an option to disable plugin content not deemed "important." Mozilla, of course, blacklisted the Flash plugin in July, although that action only disabled the then-current, vulnerable release—which was subsequently updated.

KDE Sprints - who wins? (KDE.News)
KDE.News looks at KDE sprints and their benefits. The organization is doing some fundraising to help support its sprints, so it is trying get the word out about these code-focused events: "To start with, KDE sprints are intensive sessions centered around coding. They take place in person over several days, during which time skillful developers eat, drink and sleep code. There are breaks to refresh and gain perspective, but mostly sprints involve hard, focused work. All of this developer time and effort is unpaid. However travel expenses for some developers are covered by KDE. KDE is a frugal organization with comparatively low administrative costs, and only one paid person who works part time. So the money donated for sprints goes to cover actual expenses. Who gets the money? Almost all of it goes to transportation companies."
