9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: January 31st, 2021

Weekly Roundup January 31st


The eighteenth installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is out, for the week ending on January 31st, 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!

We did it, we hit the 6K followers milestone on Twitter and that makes me so happy! Thank you guys for following and supporting me and 9to5Linux during these unprecedented times, and thank you again to all those who donated money helping with hosting costs and anything else required to keep the website alive. Donations are still welcome and, if you want to support 9to5Linux, you can donate too here.

This has been yet another great week for Linux news, releases, and whatnot. We have another critical Sudo vulnerability patched in all major distros, a new major Firefox release to update to with better privacy features, a new Nvidia graphics driver with support for Linux kernel 5.10 LTS, and new Linux kernel vulnerabilities to patch in our Ubuntu computers.

On top of that, I’m taking a first look at the brand-new MX Linux Fluxbox edition and the Ubuntu 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla) operating system on the Raspberry Pi 4 computer. Of course, I’m also covering all the latest distro and software updates, so check them all out in the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup for January 31st, 2021, below!
