There are extensions and other software that can encrypted and DRM pdf but I assume Linux Voice isn't going to use those.

It's more like the table of contents. It describes where things are but not the details or text of what's in a chapter.

Blender 2.5 Stable Release

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 3 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.57. This is the first stable release of the Blender 2.5 series, representing the culmination of many years of redesign and development work.

We name this version "Stable" not only because it's mostly feature complete, but especially thanks to the 1000s of fixes and feature updates we did since the 2.5 beta versions were published.

The next 2 months we will keep working on finishing a couple of left-over 2.5 targets and we expect to get feedback and bug reports from users to handle as well. If all goes well, the 2.58 version then can be the final release of the 2.5 series, with a massive amount of new projects to be added for an exciting cycle of 2.6x versions. Target is to release updates every 2 months this year."

Stardock rescinds "Gamers Bill of Rights"

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Stardock’s own Gamer’s Bill of Rights is no longer to be found on their site. That’d be the Bill of Rights featuring the proud bulletpoint:

“2. Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state.”

You used to be able to find the bill right here.

PC Gamer are up in arms about it being unfinished in a similar manner to earlier Stardock release, DemiGod, which also came out earlier than its announced release date. PCG go on to quote a post from Stardock CEO Brad Wardell on the Quarter to Three forums in which he responds to a displeased customer, seemingly in absolute contradiction of his own Rule #2:

“the hostility in this thread exceeds my own tolerance for putting up with said hostility.

Also, to anyone, like you Ben, saying the game is like an “early beta” then well, please stay away from our games in the future. I consider it ready for release and if others disagree, don’t buy our games.”

We’ve contacted Stardock for a comment and are awaiting a response."

Apple bans Adobe CS5 Flash Compiler

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Looks like Adobe's release of CS5 with the Flash-to-native compiler has been nixed by Apple's new user agreement:

"3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs."

When did Apple become the most evil technology company on the planet? I bet the folks at Google are feeling really good about Android's future prospects. This ban also affects MonoTouch and other non Objective-C development platforms for the iPhone/iPad and similar Apple devices."
