Weekly Roundup June 27th


The thirty-ninth installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on June 27th, 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.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone for all your support during this past week, for all the likes, retweets, follows, tips, suggestions, comments, and whatnot. Thank you again to everyone who donated so far to keep 9to5Linux alive during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This week has been really slow on news and releases, but we got a brand-new kernel to play with, Linux 5.13, and there’s also the first-ever release of Rocky Linux as a drop-in replacement for CentOS Linux 8.

On top of that, Ubuntu users got major new kernel security updates, KDE Plasma users got a new update to their favorite desktop environment, and Linux gamers got a new Proton release with support for more of those Windows games.

You can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s weekly roundup for June 27th, 2021, below!
