Square Crop Effect

Drupal Modules - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 17:42

Image Effect for Image Styles.

This module fills a need for square crop effect that doesn't require any height or width to be specified. It examines the dimensions and produces the larges square possible (cropped on a top-center anchoring).

It also works great as a fallback filter to ensure squares for styles that also rely on modules like manualcrop or smartcrop.

Media Browser Edit Link

Drupal Modules - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 17:15
Summary

This module fills in a missing piece of functionality. In Media Browser (media_wysiwyg) you cannot easily edit the fields of a file entity from the wysiwyg once the file is added.

This adds an "Edit" link above the preview image when you click the Media button for an existing embedded asset. Clicking the link opens the full file edit screen in another window.

This is designed to be compatible with Media 2.x branch. It plays nice with manualcrop, and adds "crop" to the link if present.

Lenovo vows to stop shipping PCs with third-party bloatware after Superfish fiasco

InfoWorld - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 12:38

It only took an embarrassing adware scandal that put millions of PCs at risk, but Lenovo has had a revelation: People just want clean Windows.

As such, Lenovo will significantly reduce the amount of pre-loaded software on its PCs. The cutbacks on bloatware will begin immediately, and by the time Windows 10 arrives this fall, new PCs will only include the operating system, security tools, Lenovo's own apps, and any software necessary to make the hardware run properly. (An exception will be made in countries where certain applications are "customarily expected by users.")

[ Watch out for 11 signs you've been hacked -- and learn how to fight back, in InfoWorld's PDF special report. | Discover how to secure your systems with InfoWorld's Security newsletter. ]

"This should eliminate what our industry calls 'adware' and 'bloatware,'" Lenovo said in a statement.
