Hyperledger Grows by 16 New Members

  • Fast growing, diverse membership base continues to fuel innovation and adoption for enterprise blockchain

    SAN FRANCISCO – (May 30, 2018)Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, announced today 16 organizations joined the project, bringing the total number of new members in 2018 to 67. A global collaboration hosted by The Linux Foundation, Hyperledger now includes more than 235 organizations.

    Hyperledger has gained significant traction as a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort and includes 10 business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. The fast growing membership base is helping fuel innovation and increasingly widespread adoption of enterprise blockchain.

    “As we just demonstrated at Consensus, the Hyperledger community is on the front lines of putting blockchain into production across numerous industries,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “From healthcare to banking to digital identity management, our members are developing both the use cases and the code for distributed ledgers that scale, connect and interoperate. The accelerating growth we are seeing shows the widening footprint of enterprise blockchain and increasing recognition of a community-based approach to advancing the technology and business models.”

    Hyperledger aims to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. The latest general members to join the community are: BlackRidge Technology, Blockdaemon, Chengdu Chiwu Software Technologies, China Systems Holdings Limited, Evernym, Experian, iownit capital and markets, Inc., Kakaopay, Lucidity, Pokitdok and Thinktecture AG. They join Deutsche Bank, which signed on earlier this month as a Premier member.

    Hyperledger supports an open community that values contributions and participation from various entities. As such, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger at no cost as associate members. Associate members joining this month include Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), MIT Connection Science and National Institute of Telecommunications (Ministry of Digital Affairs Poland).

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).
