Microsoft Quietly Launched Flow For Automated Workflow and Task Automation

Microsoft Flow

Microsoft quietly launched a new service called Microsoft Flow that will help people to create workflows which automatically responds to certain events. Flow is currently under preview and supports free sign-ups. It seems to be competing tools like IFTTT and Zapier directly.

The documentation of the service provides the details about what can be done with Flow:

  • Post to Slack if you like a tweet
  • Send a message on Slack when the manager emails
  • Get Slack notifications when a member subscribes to a MailChimp list
  • Get Office 365 email notifications forwarded to Slack channel

The developers can also expose a custom workflow as an API that can be used by others.

OpenSSL Released Two New Version To Patch Two High-Severity Bugs

OpenSSL Version 1.0.2h and 1.0.1t

OpenSSL recently released version 1.0.2h and 1.0.1t of its open-source cryptographic library. It fixes multiple security vulnerabilities that can lead to decryption of traffic, denial of service attacks, and execution of arbitrary code. The Oracle padding issue (CVE-2016-2107) was also fixed where the attackers can corrupt plaintext padding of encrypted messages and decrypt traffic.

OpenSSL’s new version 1.0.2h and 1.0.1t also fixed two low-severity flaws related to (CVE-2016-2105) and (CVE-2016-2106) functions. “This could still represent a security issue for end user code that calls this function directly,” OpenSSL team warned.

Vue.js 2.0 Speeds Up To Focus On DOM Enhancements

Vue.js 2.0

Vue.js recently released a public preview of its updated version 2.0 which is leaner and faster than before. Version 2.0 comes with a virtual DOM layer enhancing the speed and memory consumption. According to a bulletin on the technology, “The rendering layer is now based on a lightweight virtual-DOM implementation that improves initial rendering speed and memory consumption by up to 2-4x in most scenarios.”

The upgraded version offers template-based syntax and programmatic rendering with hyperscript or JSK to help developers achieve maximum flexibility regarding development style. The built-in streaming server-side rendering of Vue.js 2.0 enables rendering of components and get a readable stream back as well as directly piping it to HTTP response. It also includes a light footprint along with a “forgiving” learning curve. Vue.js 2.0’s source code is available on GitHub.
