Weekly Roundup January 3rd


The fourteenth installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here, for the week ending on January 3rd, and the first for 2021, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things that have happened in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s Weekly Roundup, you can check it out here.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a great and safe party on New Year’s Eve and that 2021 will bring you happiness and peace. I also hope you’re ready for more Linux news as I intend to keep you guys up to date with everything that’s important in the Linux world throughout the year.

As you can imagine, this past week has been relaxing due to the New Year’s break, but we did had some very nice releases on the first day of the year as it looked like everyone rushed to push their brand-new release out the door in 2021. There were also many updated packages and distros, so check them all out below.
