9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: August 1st, 2021

Weekly Roundup August 1st


The forty-four installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on August 1st, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things happening in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup, you can check it out here.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone for all the love you showed this week, either by posting comments, retweeting, liking, or sending tips and suggestions. It’s all highly appreciated! Also, I would like to thank our new followers (we’re nearing 11K followers on Twitter and I couldn’t be more happier!), as well as everyone who donated so far. You guys rock!

It’s August already, and this means that we’re getting new releases of Ubuntu and Debian GNU/Linux. But, until then, this past week brought us new releases of the PulseAudio sound server, KDE Plasma 5.22 desktop environment, as well as the Arch Linux and 4MLinux distributions.

On top of that, I published another awesome monthly roundup of Xfce app updates, and, if you have the time, you can test drive the upcoming releases of MX Linux 21 and Linux Lite 5.6 distributions. You can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for August 1st, 2021, below!
