Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2022 brings you more happiness and peace into your hearts, and more Linux and Open Source into your lives. Thank you for an amazing 2021, thank you for all your support, and I truly hope that you’ll be here for 2022 too.

This is the first 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup edition in 2022 and it brings you news about the upcoming releases of Ubuntu Touch OTA-21 and Linux Lite 5.8 distributions, the end of life of CentOS Linux 8, a major postmarketOS release for ARM devices, and new major releases of the Avidemux video editor and Pinta paint program.

On top of that, I take a look at Xfce’s app releases for December 2021 and Garuda Linux’s first release in 2022. You can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for January 2nd, 2022, below!
