Roundup February 13th 2022

The seventy-two installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on February 13th, 2022, 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 keep being awesome, for supporting me, for sending me suggestions and tips for articles, and for all your shares, likes, retweets, and whatnot. A big thank you also goes to everyone who followed us on all our social media channels and to everyone who supported us in the past with donations!

This week has been a bit slow on Linux news, probably because of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday (happy Valentine’s Day! 😍), but we had some big ones like the release of the KDE Plasma 5.24 LTS desktop environment, OpenMandriva Lx 4.3 distribution, Firefox 97 web browser, OBS Studio 27.2 live streaming and recording software, as well as the KDE Frameworks 5.91 and Plasma Mobile Gear 22.02 software suites.

On top of that, I take a look at the Fragments BitTorrent client as the Flatpak app of this week and the new Kalendar 1.0 calendar app for the Plasma desktop environment, and tell you all about the changes in the upcoming Ubuntu Touch OTA-22 software update for your Linux phone or tablet. You can enjoy this and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for February 13th, 2022, below!
