Tech Talk — the superior technical presentation software — is back!
(Not surprisingly this coincides with me doing a presentation at FOSDEM this weekend …)
The new version has been rebuilt around WebKit (all the work for this was done by Dan Berrange). Mozilla were never really serious about “MozEmbed”, and in practice it crashed all the time. WebKit (or KHTML as we like to call it) is built from the ground up for embedding and it is rock solid, so it was just better to switch.
Also in this development version is support for VTE, which is a simpler way to display terminal output. Any shell script called
*.term is rendered in a built-in VTE terminal emulator. You can still use
*.sh for shell scripts that you want to run during your presentation (eg. for using your own terminal, or just running arbitrary programs).
Unexpectedly Tech Talk PSE the superior presentation software for technical software demonstrations has got its own Wikipedia article (talk page). I knew nothing about it until I noticed the article appearing in the referer logs on my webserver. Appropriately it’s listed right above PowerPoint.
It seems like a good time to say that there’s a new minor version, 1.0.1. The only change is that we fixed the broken Next slide / Back buttons with a single line patch.
If you want to see me using Tech Talk PSE then skip to 30:00 in the Summit video.
Tech Talk PSE will shortly be in Fedora:
