Microsoft lifts update embargo on Windows 10

Microsoft this week lifted the security update blockade on Windows 10 PCs that do not have approved antivirus software, but kept the no-patches-for-you rule in place for the more popular Windows 7.

The update roadblock was assembled in early January, when Microsoft issued mitigations against the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. Those vulnerabilities stemmed from design flaws in virtually all modern processors made by Intel, AMD and ARM. According to Microsoft, the security updates could brick PCs equipped with antivirus (AV) software that had improperly tapped into kernel memory.

What’s new in Apache Spark? Low-latency streaming and Kubernetes

You’d be forgiven for passing by the announcement of Apache Spark 2.3. After all, it’s a point release, isn’t it? Sure, there will be some bug fixes, maybe an improvement or two to the MLLib framework, maybe an extra operator or something, but nothing all that major.

In fact, this is no mere point release. Apache Spark 2.3 ships with two major new features, one of which is perhaps the biggest (and often-requested) change to streaming operations since Spark Streaming was added to the project.
