9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: February 21st, 2021

Weekly Roundup February 21st


The twenty-first installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is out, for the week ending on February 21st, 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!

Thank you everyone for another great week, for all your awesome comments and feedback, and for all the love you showed on social media. Thank again to those who donated so far to keep this Linux website alive during the COVID-19 pandemic, and if you want to help too, you can donate here. Any amount is welcome, so don’t be shy!

This week has been really interesting, but a bit slow on the news and releases. The biggest stories are the launch of the KDE Plasma 5.21 desktop environment, the return of siduction Linux, a new major NetworkManager release, the default OS for the PinePhone Linux phone, and the release of the Kodi 19 home theater software.

I top that with a hands-on article of the Ubuntu Unity 20.10 operating system on the Raspberry Pi 4 computer. You can enjoy these and many other Linux news, as well as the latest distro and software releases in the 9to5Linux weekly roundup for February 21st, 2021, below!
