AWS 推出第二代的官方 Linux AMI:Amazon Linux 2

AWS 推出了第二代的官方 Linux AMI:「Introducing Amazon Linux 2」。這個版本提供五年 LTS 維護:

Amazon Linux 2 will offer extended availability of software updates for the core operating system through 5 years of long-term support and provides access to the latest software packages through the Amazon Linux Extras repository.

然後也大致提了一下內容物:

Amazon Linux 2 provides a modern execution environment with LTS Kernel (4.9) tuned for optimal performance on Amazon Web Services (AWS), systemd support, and newer tooling (gcc 7.2.1, glibc 2.25, binutils 2.27).

不過對 YUM-based 的系統不是很愛,應該還是會繼續龜在 Ubuntu 下...

Twitter 的 280 字帶來的差異

在「140 Vs. 280: Users Engage With Longer Tweets Data Shows」這邊分析了在 Twitter 上 0~140 與 141~280 字的 tweet 所帶來的互動差異:

可以看到較長的 tweet 會有比較多的 retweet 與 like,不過更細一步的分析就沒有了... 文章內也有提到資料的分析是怎麼來的:

The data parameters: 30,000 publisher tweets that included links between November 29 – December 6.
The results: The click-through rate was roughly equal for both tweet length types but overall engagement nearly doubled for longer tweets. On tweets containing 141-280 characters, the average retweet was a staggering 26.52% – compared the 13.71% for tweets with 0-140 characters. For likes, tweets containing 141-280 characters had an average of a whopping 50.28%, compared to 0-140’s 26.96%.

django 的 LTS

看到「Django 1.11 released」這篇才發現 django 也有設計 LTS 機制... 在「Django’s release process」這邊有介紹:

Certain feature releases will be designated as long-term support (LTS) releases. These releases will get security and data loss fixes applied for a guaranteed period of time, typically three years.

所以是提供三年的維護期...

新的 AWS 帳號將會自動啟用 Long EC2 Resource ID

新的 AWS 帳號將會自動啟用長版的 Resource ID:「New accounts default to long EC2 resource IDs on March 7」。

還是可以 opt-out 改回來,不過官方還是建議儘量用長的 ID 測試,因為今年年底將全面強迫使用:

We recommend testing longer IDs before transitioning; however, if you have not yet tested your systems for compatibility with the longer format, you still have the option to opt out and receive shorter IDs until early December 2016.

Node.js 的 LTS 計畫

Node.js 在 4.0 開始啟動 LTS (Long Term Support) 計畫:「Node v4.0.0 (Stable)」。

可以參考「Node.js Long-term Support Working Group」這邊的說明。最主要的重點是生命週期,首先是每六個月就會放一次新版,跟 Ubuntu 相同,也都是四月與十月:

In parallel, we will be branching a new Stable line of releases every 6 months, one in October and one in April each year.

每個 LTS 版本將會有 18 + 12 = 30 個月的支援期:

This means that there will be overlapping LTS branches being maintained throughout the year, each receiving attention for a total of 30 months (LTS plus Maintenance).

這張圖說明了 LTS 與維護的時間線:

有個 LTS 的指標可以挑了...

HHVM 的 LTS

相較於 Ubuntu 的五年 LTS (Long Term Support),HHVM 的 LTS 只有 48 周:「HHVM Long Term Support」。

不過考慮到 PHP 的開發週期,這個時間長度不算太意外:

每 24 周會有一次 LTS release,而每個 LTS 支援 48 周。

今年 2014/09/11 要出的 HHVM 3.3 將會支援到明年 2015/08/13,這樣對於會需要使用 HHVM 的單位應該還算可以接受?

等穩定下來後 (不知道多久後) 也許會再拉長 LTS 的支援時間?
