  • After months of testing, Facebook Oct. 10 unveiled a new service it calls Workplace. The platform, which formerly was known as Facebook at Work before the company shifted its focus, is similar to popular corporate collaboration tools such as Slack, providing employees with the ability to communicate not only with others within their own company but within other companies as well. Workplace works across mobile and desktop. And since this is a Facebook service, employees will find familiar features, including chat, support for a company's News Feed to provide a steady flow of corporate updates and Facebook Live, so users can stream and watch video content in real time over the internet. Facebook's Workplace appears to be a compelling option for corporate users who want to break away from email or want to try something other than Slack. And Facebook believes it has the proper balance of features to appeal to the enterprise. This eWEEK slide show discusses what Workplace offers organizations.

  • Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind the open-source Ubuntu Linux operating system, is set to debut its second major milestone release of 2016 on Oct. 13. The Ubuntu 16.10 release is named Yakkety Yak and follows the 16.04 Xenial Xerus release, which became generally available on April 21 and is a Long Term Support (LTS) release. The 16.10 release, however, is what Canonical considers to be a standard release. With an LTS, Canonical provides support for five years, while a standard release is supported only for nine months. In many respects, Ubuntu 16.10 is an incremental release and does not provide major new features, but rather a set of updated packages and minor improvements. Among the updated software are the open-source LibreOffice 5.2 productivity suite and the Firefox 48 web browser. Also of particular note is the fact that Ubuntu 16.10 is based on the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, which provides advanced hardware support and improved performance. The Ubuntu 16.10 milestone also provides a preview for the Unity 8 desktop. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the features in the Ubuntu 16.04 Linux release.

  • Imbued with intelligence, the integrated business application platform will be generally available early next month.
