This week started strong with a big announcement from the Thunderbird project as they plan on developing an Android app for the popular open-source email client, the release of the KDE Plasma 5.25 desktop environment, and another big announcement, this time from Mozilla as they enabled the “Total Cookie Protection” privacy/anti-tracking feature by default for all desktop users.

Also this week, we got new releases of our beloved software and GNU/Linux distributions, including but not limited to IPFire, GIMP, Proton, Manjaro, and Ubuntu Core. In other news, games publisher Feral Interactive releases a Linux port of the Total War: WARHAMMER III video game, and the Linux 5.17 kernel series reached end of life and it will no longer be supported with maintenance updates.
