This page contains updates for my book, Hello, Scala. As I find good, new resources related to the book I’ll share them here, along with errata related to the book.
(No updates yet.)
It drives me crazy when I log into my MacOS Yosemite and Sierra systems and I’m quickly hit with an Apple “You have updates” notification. It’s like I just want to get to work, and I’m reminded of updates I don’t care about.
I just learned that you can hide some updates from annoying you, but I haven’t found a way to get rid of other updates.
If you want to install only security-related updates to your CentOS Linux installation using the
yum command, it looks like the
yum-plugin-security plugin might be a good option. (I’m having a few problems with it at the moment, so I can’t say that this is the absolute solution.) I found it on this page and this page.
It used to really amaze me that some people always knew immediately when there were new updates to software applications -- and this goes back to the old days when many applications weren't self-updating. I always wondered how they knew about these software updates so fast. With today's RSS feeds it's pretty easy.
