Open-Source Radeon Tools Updated With Expanded RDNA(2) Support, Other Features


RADEON --

In addition to NVIDIA releasing new open-source GameWorks projects this week for the Game Developers Conference, AMD with their GPUOpen initiative has released several updated Radeon Windows/Linux tools.

Radeon GPU Analyzer 2.5 is out today with expanded RDNA2 support (GFX1032 target support), support for analyzing OpenCL on RDNA/RDNA2/CDNA targets, live VGPR analysis and control-flow graph support within the Vulkan path, and a variety of other bug fixes and improvements to this graphics analyzer.

Radeon Memory Visualizer 1.2 is also out with stability and bug fixes, tooltips to supply more information, and range-based address search for resource tables.

Radeon GPU Profiler 1.11 was also released today. Radeon GPU Profiler 1.11 brings support for additional RDNA2 GPUs, cache counter support for OpenCL applications, ray-tracing handling improvements, faster loading of profiles, and other changes.

Details on these update tools and the other open-source Radeon packages for developers via GPUOpen.com.

Qt Creator 4.9 Released With Expanded Language Server Protocol Support


QT --

The Qt Company today released Qt Creator 4.9, the latest feature update to their integrated development environment focused on Qt/C++ support that has expanded now to support more programming languages via the Language Server Protocol (LSP) support.

Language Server Protocol support was introduced in Qt Creator 4.8 to allow for more programming languages to be easily supported by Qt Creator via leveraging this standard making it easy for IDEs and other programming tooling to have an exchange format for generic programming language support. With Qt Creator 4.9, the LSP support has been extended to support more operations.

Meanwhile the C++ support specifically got extended thanks to improvements to their Clang-based analyzer tools and other improvements. The Qt QML support was also updated by pulling in the QML parser from Qt 5.12 LTS that includes ECMAScript 7 support.

New to Qt Creator 4.7 is support for performance profiling using the Linux kernel’s “Perf” subsystem to open up a lot of new possibilities. More details on these new features and other changes can be found via the Qt blog.


Outreachy Summer 2019 Applications Open With Expanded Eligibility


FREE SOFTWARE --

Outreachy, the program formerly known as the Outreach Program for Women and intended to get more females and other under-represented groups in technology engaged with Linux/open-source projects, has opened up their application process for those seeking a summer internship while receiving a $5,500 USD stipend.

Outreachy has been going for a number of years now and for the summer 2019 round they’ve expanded the eligibility slightly to encourage more under-represented groups engaged with open-source development. The main focus of Outreachy remains with “women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people to apply. We also expressly invite applications who are residents and nationals of the United States of America of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/[email protected], Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

But beginning this round, they are also opening the application process to “anyone who faces systemic bias or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is invited to apply.” For evaluating the systemic bias or discrimination, an essay question was added to the application process about what discrimination they may have faced or otherwise think they could face in seeking employment.

Also different beginning this round is only students (update: for non-student participants, this restriction does not apply) from the Northern Hemisphere can apply to this May to August round while the Southern Hemisphere round is being deemed the December to March round moving forward.

Another change with Outreachy for students applying is they no longer need to be full-time students but could be part-time students. Questions about school credits/classes have been dropped from the application while warning that false information is against their Code of Conduct.

Among the open-source projects participating in Outreachy for this upcoming round include Fedora to work on “Fedora Happiness Packets”, LibreHealth to improve code and documentation, OCaml with testing, OpenStack, and Wikimedia.
