The seventy-four installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on February 27th, 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 yet another amazing week and for keep being awesome by posting comments, sending suggestions and tips, as well as for sharing and liking our articles on social media. Thank you and welcome to all our new followers as we’re celebrating 18K followers on Twitter!

This week has been yet another slow week for Linux news and releases, but we got some interesting gems like the release of Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS with newer kernel and graphics stacks, a new NetworkManager release with lots of goodies, and a new release of the minimalist and portable Slax distribution (finally after so many years!).

On top of that, GNOME desktop fans can now take the beta release for a test drive, KDE Plasma fans got a new bugfix release, Star Lite Mk III laptop owners can now update their firmware, Steam Deck starts arriving in the hands of people, and I take a look at Foliate as the Flatpak app of this week.

You can enjoy this and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for February 27th, 2022, below!
