9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: July 2nd, 2023

Roundup July 2nd 2023

The 144th installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on July 2nd, 2023, 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, catch up with everything GNU/Linux/Open Source here.

Thank you!

Thank you, everyone, for your continued support by following us on social media, posting comments, liking and sharing the articles, sending tips and suggestions, and whatnot. As usual, a big thank you goes to all our current and past donors/sponsors for keeping the website alive!

The end of June and the beginning of July were really hot and full of great news. We got new Libreboot and GNU Linux-libre kernel releases, a major Blender release that’s also an LTS one, a new Firefox release that’s also an ESR one, as well as new distro releases including Nitrux, Peppermint OS, and KaOS.

TUXEDO Computers announced a new Linux laptop, Collabora shared more details about their work on the NVK Vulkan driver for NVIDIA GPUs, Fedora Project plans on pushing their new Anaconda WebUI installer to the masses, and GNOME Project continues its work on the upcoming GNOME 45 desktop environment.

On top of that, I show you how to install the latest and greatest Linux 6.4 kernel on Ubuntu and give you a first look at the new Zorin OS Upgrader utility. You can read this week’s hottest news and access all the distro and package downloads in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for July 2nd, 2023, below.

Website changes

I did some website changes recently to make the navigation more intuitive, ditching the infinite scroll feature that would eventually make the website harder to navigate. At the bottom of the site, on the front page, there’s now an “Older Posts” link if you want to read last week’s articles or older ones.

In addition, I’ve implemented a new “Buy me a coffee” button at the end of each article for those of you who want to use an ad blocker while navigating 9to5Linux but still support the website in some way by buying me a coffee to keep me fueled and more productive in giving you the best stories.
