Can you spread the word? Privacy Awerness Video By Mozilla - Episode 1

Can you spread the word? Privacy Awerness Video By Mozilla - Episode 1

mozilla Hello,

I wanted to share a new video created by Mozilla that's already been viewed more than 350,000 times(on mozilla website ) since it released .

The video is designed for people who are new to the privacy discussion and helps explain why we should all care about our right to privacy. The more people we can reach, the greater our power to create change. Can you share it with your friends and family?


This is the first video in a multi-part series about encryption - you can read more about that below.
More soon --
------------------------------

Hello,
We can move more people from simply consuming the Web to becoming its active citizens, but we need your help.
People like you and I know how fundamental privacy is to the open Web. There are many more who share our values and would join this movement. That's why we made something to spotlight the importance of online privacy. We're creating videos for you to watch and then share with friends, family, and colleagues. The videos are designed to be an introduction to the issues we care about - a way for each of us to start important conversations.

This is where you come in: will you watch this first video and then share it? It's a great tool to start a conversation about privacy with people you know.
This new video series starts simple: it explores why privacy is so important in our everyday lives. In follow up videos we'll send over the next few weeks, we'll talk about encryption, and tell the story of how encryption can help enable and protect privacy.  

Why do this now? We expect there are a number of significant political battles on surveillance and encryption coming down the pipe. We're going to need to ask people like you and your friends to take a stand. Before we do this, we want to provide a solid grounding on why encryption matters.  

Will you watch the video now and help spread the word?

P.S. This is a new campaign strategy for us and we will learn a lot as the weeks go on. We'd love to hear your feedback - after watching the video, you can reply to this email and let us know what you think. Or send an email to askjoin@mozilla.org.

(Build 3103) On Windows and OS X

sublime text logo

Sublime Text is a cross-platform source code editor with a Python application programming interface (API). It natively supports many programming languages and markup languages, and its functionality can be extended by users with plugins, typically community-built and maintained under free-software licenses.

Features :

The following is a list of features of Sublime Text:
  • "Goto Anything," quick navigation to files, symbols, or lines
  • "Command palette" uses adaptive matching for quick keyboard invocation of arbitrary commands
  • Simultaneous editing: simultaneously make the same interactive changes to multiple selected areas
  • Python-based plugin API
  • Project-specific preferences
  • Extensive customizability via JSON settings files, including project-specific and platform-specific settings
  • Cross platform (Windows, OS X, Linux)
  • Compatible with many language grammars from TextMate

Sublime Text is one of the best and light weight text editor or IDE I've used ever. It's simple , fast, amazing performance, extendable through plugins. Sublime Text 3 is right now in beta. The latest build is 3103.
Here i am going to show how to install this latest build of sublime text on windows and OS X.

Installing Sublime Text On Windows System

Portable or Not Portable?

Sublime Text comes in two flavors for Windows: normal, and portable. Most users should be better served by a normal installation. Use the portable version only if you know you need it.

Normal installations separate data between two folders: the installation folder proper, and the data directory (user-specific directory for data; explained later in this guide). Normal installations also integrate Sublime Text with File Explorer.

Portable installations keep all files needed by Sublime Text in a single folder. This folder can be moved around and the editor will still work.


How to Install the Normal Version of Sublime Text

for 32 bit systems

  1. Download the installer (.exe file)
  2. Double click on the installer

for 64 bit systems

  1. Download the installer (.exe file)
  2. Double click on the installer

How to Install the Portable Version of Sublime Text

for 32 bit systems

  1. Download the compressed files
  2. Unzip them to a folder of your choice
You will find the sublime_text.exe executable inside that folder.

for 64 bit systems

  1. Download the compressed files
  2. Unzip them to a folder of your choice
You will find the sublime_text.exe executable inside that folder.


For OS X :

  1. Download .dmg file
  2. Open .dmg file
  3. Drag the Sublime Text 3 bundle into the Applications folder

To create a symbolic link to use at the command line issue the following command at the terminal:
ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" /usr/local/bin/subl

How To Install Sublime Text 3 (Build 3103) On Linux Systems

How To Install Sublime Text 3
(Build 3103) On The Most Popular Linux Systems

Here i am going to show how to install this latest build of sublime text on different Linux systems.

Installing Sublime Text On Ubuntu (14.04 and later) and Ubuntu based systems

for 32 bit systems

cd && wget https://download.sublimetext.com/sublime-text_build-3103_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i sublime-text_build-3103_i386.deb

For 64 bit systems

cd && wget https://download.sublimetext.com/sublime-text_build-3103_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i sublime-text_build-3103_amd64.deb


For Other Linux Systems :

For 32 bit systems

cd ~
wget https://download.sublimetext.com/sublime_text_3_build_3103_x32.tar.bz2

Extract the Sublime Text .tar file:

tar vxjf sublime_text_3_build_3103_x32.tar.bz2


For 64 bit systems

cd ~
wget https://download.sublimetext.com/sublime_text_3_build_3103_x64.tar.bz2

Extract the Sublime Text .tar file:

tar vxjf sublime_text_3_build_3103_x64.tar.bz2

Now we should move the uncompressed files to an appropriate location. sudo mv Sublime\ Text\ 3 /opt/
Lastly, we create a symbolic link to use at the command line. sudo ln -s /opt/Sublime\ Text\ 3/sublime_text /usr/bin/sublime
In Ubuntu, if you also want to add Sublime Text to the Unity luncher, read on.
First we need to create a new file(.desktop file). sudo sublime /usr/share/applications/sublime.desktop

Then copy the following into it. [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Sublime Text GenericName=Text Editor Comment=Sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose Exec=/opt/sublime_text/sublime_text %F Terminal=false MimeType=text/plain; Icon=sublime-text Categories=TextEditor;Development; StartupNotify=true Actions=Window;Document; [Desktop Action Window] Name=New Window Exec=/opt/sublime_text/sublime_text -n OnlyShowIn=Unity; [Desktop Action Document] Name=New File Exec=/opt/sublime_text/sublime_text --command new_file OnlyShowIn=Unity;
If you've registered your copy of Sublime Text, but every time you open it you're asked to enter your license, you should try running this command. sudo chown -R username:username /home/username/.config /sublime-text-3
  Just replace username with your account's username. This should fix the permission error in the case that you opened up Sublime Text as root when you first entered the license.

LibreOffice 5.1: The premier open-source office suite just keeps getting better

LibreOffice 5.1
The premier open-source office suite just keeps getting better

New features include streamlined menus and remote-server support.



It's a good day for fans of open-source software. The Document Foundation is releasing LibreOffice 5.1 for Windows, Linux, and Mac. On tap are reorganized menus, integrated support for remote servers like Microsoft SharePoint and Google Drive, improved compatibility with Microsoft Office documents, and too many smaller improvements to count.

LibreOffice 101

LibreOffice is the product of more than 1,000 developers, most of whom are volunteers, and has an estimated 100 million users worldwide. Born in 2010 as a fork of OpenOffice, LibreOffice has taken the lead and left its progenitor in the dust. In keeping with the Document Foundation's time-based release schedule, this latest release comes six months after LibreOffice 5.0—and will be followed by another release in six months' time.

Make no mistake: If you want an open-source office suite, LibreOffice is the one to use. Heck, if you just want a desktop office suite that's free to use, LibreOffice is the best option. That's why it's included with most Linux distributions by default. But it's available for Windows and Mac, too.

Reorganized menus

After spending the LibreOffice 3.x series cleaning up the code, and the 4.x series rearchitecting it, LibreOffice's developers are using the 5.x series to focus on the user interface.

The menus have been reorganized in Writer, Calc, and Impress—LibreOffice's word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation program, respectively. The new menus are designed to provide faster access to the most-used features. Writer gained a "Styles" menu, Calc gained a "Sheet" menu, and Impress gained a "Slide" menu.

The sidebars also got some attention, with the addition of a new Chart sidebar that allows quicker access to chart-editing options. While menus and sidebars don't sound the most exciting things, a streamlined interface is the kind of unexciting feature that will save many people time.

Updates Make Us All Stronger

You have the power to make the Internet safer.


mozilla

     Updating to the latest security software, browser, and operating system provides an important defence against viruses, malware, and other online threats.

     You could drive around with old, burned-out brake lights on your car, but it makes driving more dangerous than it should be. And if we all did that, it would get really dangerous, fast!

Letting your systems get out of date can encourage malicious actors online, which makes everyone vulnerable in the end.

     Mozilla cares about your privacy and security everywhere, not just on Firefox, because the safer the Internet is, the easier it is to create and keep it open. So please take a minute to update your software. The Web will thank you.
