The forty installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on July 4th, 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.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all our American followers, wherever you are and thank you for being here with us. A huge thank you also goes to everyone who follows 9to5Linux on Twitter as we reached 10K followers this week – what an amazing milestone! And lastly, thank you to everyone who donated so far, as well as to everyone who posted comments or sent tips, suggestions, and whatnot.

This has been a great week for Linux news and releases as we got a new Linux gaming laptop from TUXEDO Computers, new releases of the KDE-oriented Nitrux and KaOS Linux distros, as well as new release of System76’s Pop!_OS Linux and Deepin Linux distributions.

On top of that, we got a bunch of updated software, starting with the GNU Linux-libre kernel and continuing with the Mixxx DJ app, OpenZFS implementation of ZFS for Linux, Ardour DAW app, and Darktable RAW image editor. You can enjoy these, and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for July 4th, 2021, below!
