X11, Window Managers Updated: Fedora was right in the middle of announcing all this properly, so here is the updated item containing the official names. Videos included, as well as the inevitable 'Why not Xgl?'. "AIGLX is a project that aims to enable GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop. We have a lightly modified X server (that includes a couple of extensions), an updated Mesa package that adds some new protocol support and a version of metacity with a composite manager. The end result is that you can use GL effects on your desktop with very few changes, the ability to turn it on and off at will, and you don't have to replace your X server in the process." This is part of Fedora's Rendering Project, and instructions on how to install all this are available too.

Manmist, I work on the AppArmor product team in Novell's SUSE Labs.

All AppArmor code is released under the GPL or LGPL: http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfcontent/downloads.php/apparmor/De...

This includes the logprof/genprof profile generation tools. This includes the YaST GUI front end. This includes the report generation tools. Everything.

What you may be thinking of is the AppArmor integrated into SUSE Linux 10.0 and SLES9 Service Pack 3; these were released before AppArmor tools were GPL'd, and were thus released under the older proprietary license. We plan on releasing an update for SLES9SP3 and SL10.0 in the future to relicense the files and packages, but CODE10 development has taken priority.

The AppArmor team also plans to submit the kernel module for inclusion in kernel.org kernels. However, six years of development without concerted cleanup efforts along the way requires time to "clean up" to he kernel's high standards.
