Windows 11 瘦身版本的 Tiny11

Tiny11NTDEV 弄出來的精簡版 Windows 11:「De-Bloated Windows 11 Build Runs on 2GB of RAM」。HN 上對應的討論在「De-Bloated Windows 11 Build Runs on 2GB of RAM (」。

It just uses around 8GB of space compared to the 20+GB that a standard installation does.


This OS install “is not serviceable,” notes NTDev. “.NET, drivers and security definition updates can still be installed from Windows Update,” so this isn’t an install which you can set and forget.

另外像是透過 WinSxS 安裝的功能 (包括語言) 會無法安裝:

Moreover, removing the Windows Component Store (WinSxS), which is responsible for a fair degree of Tiny11’s compactness, means that installing new features or languages isn’t possible.

但我記得拔掉 WinSxS 應該會影響蠻多東西的?這樣的系統應該是拿來跑跑 CI 或是固定用途還行,一般性的用途不知道會卡多少東西...


In testing, NTDev said that Tiny11 could “run great” on a system with just 2GB of RAM.

FBI 手上的 GrayKey 可以解 iPhone 11 Pro Max

在「FBI Successfully Unlocks iPhone 11 Pro in Ohio, Casting Doubt on Claims it Needs Apple's Help in Florida Mass Shooter Case」這邊看到的消息,看起來 FBI 手上的 GrayKey 可以解開 iPhone 11 Pro Max 了...

先前 GrayKey 只有舊型的可以解,像是之前揭露的 iPhone 5 或是 iPhone 7,現在看起來找到新的漏洞可以打穿新的版本,所以升級了:

Forbes has previously revealed a GrayKey brochure that showed it worked on older devices, and the two iPhones acquired by the FBI in the most recent Pensacola case are an ‌iPhone‌ 5 and an ‌iPhone‌ 7, which strongly suggests that investigators are already capable of unlocking them.


AWS 的 OpenJDK 11 (Amazon Corretto 11) 推出 General Availability 版

先前在「AWS 決定花力氣支援 OpenJDK (Corretto 計畫)」與「Amazon 版的 OpenJDK 8 進入 GA」後的下一步,就是對 OpenJDK 11 也推出對應的 Amazon Corretto 11:「Amazon Corretto 11 is Now Generally Available」。

這個版本將至少支援到 2024 年 8 月,也就是五年的支援期:

Long-term support (LTS) for Corretto includes performance enhancements and security updates for Corretto 8 until at least June 2023 at no cost. Updates are planned to be released quarterly. Amazon will provide LTS for Corretto 11 with quarterly updates until at least August 2024.

不過先前有些軟體測試時發現 OpenJDK 11 上不能跑,這些軟體還是得暫時用 OpenJDK 8 的版本來養...

iOS 11 將 Location 的主權交還給使用者

Hacker News Daily 上看到這則 tweet,說 iOS 11 將會把 Location 的主權交還給使用者控制:

查了對應的一些網站,可以看到好幾個站台都有介紹這一點:「iOS 11 Users to Gain More Control Over Apps' Use of Location Services」、「iOS 11 gives users tighter control over when apps can use their location」。

TechCrunch 標題寫的更直接,其實影響最直接的就是這些 app:「iOS 11 stops apps like Uber and Waze from accessing user location data at all times」。

算是不錯的消息啦... (Android 上則可以看「Background Location Limits」,這邊是 Android O 的新功能...)
