I use the composer on my desktop for many years. It is a PHP related tool. Very helpful when I need to install some PHP packages.
Composer is A Dependency Manager for PHP.
Just a few minutes ago, I did a self-update of the installation of Composer.
Composer version 1.8.0 2018-12-03 10:31:16
Updating to version 1.10.8 (stable channel).
Use composer self-update --rollback to return to version 1.8.0
Composer version 1.10.8 2020-06-24 21:23:30
The composer verser was 1.8.0. After the self-update, it is 1.10.8 now.
I am always using putty to connect my VPS and generate ssh keys.
It has a new release two weeks ago. Putty v7.4 was released on June 27, 2020.
PuTTY 0.74, released today, is a bug-fix and security release. It fixes bugs in 0.73, including one possible vulnerability, and also adds a new configuration option to mitigate a minor information leak in SSH host key policy.
Check the change log for v7.4.
Security fix: if an SSH server accepted an offer of a public key and then rejected the signature, PuTTY could access freed memory, if the key had come from an SSH agent.
Security feature: new config option to disable PuTTY’s dynamic host key preference policy, if you prefer to avoid giving away to eavesdroppers which hosts you have stored keys for.
Bug fix: the installer UI was illegible in Windows high-contrast mode.
Bug fix: console password input failed on Windows 7.
Bug fixes in the terminal: one instance of the dreaded “line==NULL” error box, and two other assertion failures.
Bug fix: potential memory-consuming loop in bug-compatible padding of an RSA signature from an agent.
Bug fix: PSFTP’s buffer handling worked badly with some servers (particularly proftpd’s mod_sftp).
Bug fix: cursor could be wrongly positioned when restoring from the alternate terminal screen. (A bug of this type was fixed in 0.59; this is a case that that fix missed.)
Bug fix: character cell height could be a pixel too small when running GTK PuTTY on Ubuntu 20.04 (or any other system with a similarly up-to-date version of Pango).
Bug fix: old-style (low resolution) scroll wheel events did not work in GTK 3 PuTTY. This could stop the scroll wheel working at all in VNC.
Please be keeping in the mind, always update the putty tool. It is very important for security purpose.
It is only four days after the release fo Calibre 4.0.
New features for Calibre 4.1
Viewer: Add an option to have a scrollbar (under Scrolling in the viewer preferences)
Viewer: Allow showing the ‘position in book’, as was displayed in the top left of the viewer in calibre 3, in the header or footer of the viewer.
Viewer: Add options to control scrolling using the mouse in paged mode.
Viewer: Allow copying images by right clicking on them.
Viewer: Add a preference under Miscellaneous to allow only a single instance of the viewer
Viewer: Add keyboard shortcuts to toggle between paged mode and flow mode and to quit
Content server: Make the book size useable in custom book list templates.
Edit metadata: Use a border rather than background color to indicate correct title and author sort values. Works better with dark themes.
Kobo driver: Support for new firmware
It is a kinds of rush for this new release. more bug fixes on it.
Welcome back, calibre users. It has been two years since calibre 3.0. This time has been spent mostly in making the calibre Content server ever more capable as well as migrating calibre itself from Qt WebKit to Qt WebEngine, because the former is no longer maintained.
The Content server has gained the ability to Edit metadata, Add/remove books and even Convert books to and from all the formats calibre itself supports. It is now a full fledged interface to your calibre libraries.
The change to use Qt WebEngine has entailed a complete rewrite of various parts of calibre, including the E-book Viewer, PDF Output, Book details etc. Every attempt has been made to preserve features and functionality in a backwards compatible way, see below for a list of some known incompatibilities.
Wow, Calibre 4.0 is comming. I can not image how different it is from 3.x.
I can wait to see it. Now download it 115MB. Install it. Then launch it.
Maybe you’re a contract graphic designer doing small, one-off projects for local businesses. Or, an in-house professional responsible for overseeing all graphic creation in a large corporation. Regardless, you can always be improving your craft.
Read on as we go over a few more advanced graphic design skills that will substantially improve your ability to communicate your message in the medium.
1. User Interface Design
At first glance, you might think this doesn’t apply to you. Perhaps your work focuses on something where ‘user interfaces’ seem worlds away from your final product.
Consider this; regardless of what your final product is, the odds of it ending up within a user interface are virtually guaranteed. If you make a graphic for an article header for a local newspaper, for example, that graphic will likely end up in the online version of the publication.
And like it or not, that makes it a part of the user interface of the website.
Knowing how to design with that type of presentation in mind already makes this a useful skill. Designing user interfaces directly, meanwhile, makes it substantially more worthwhile since the available pool of work for those who can do both is much larger.
Further, user interface creation is one of the more lucrative ways to apply the skills of a graphic designer. Per Indeed.com, user interface designers make, on average, more than doublethe income of a traditional graphic designer.
