Weekly Roundup February 14th


The twentieth installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is out, for the week ending on February 14th, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things happening in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s Weekly Roundup, you can check it out here.

Thank you!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Thank you again to all of you supporting this Linux news website by donating, posting comments, giving me suggestions, and showing lots of love on social media with likes, shares, and retweets. Your help and support are greatly appreciated.

This has been an interesting week for Linux news and releases, as we saw the launch of the highly anticipated Linux 5.11 kernel series, the re-release of the Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS desktop ISO images due to a bug in the OEM install, as well as the final release of the OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 distro and KDE Frameworks 5.79 software suite.

I consider this a slow news week, so I had some time to take a first look at GNOME 40’s new design changes in the upcoming Fedora 34 distro, compile a top 10 of the best alternatives to Raspberry Pi OS, review Manjaro Linux ARM on the Raspberry Pi 4, and show you how to connect your Linux laptop to an external monitor via HDMI.

You can enjoy these and much more in the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup for February 14th below!
