Weekly Roundup June 6th


The thirty-sixth installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on June 6th, 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 you comments, likes, feedback, tips, and love you showed for 9to5Linux this week. A big thank you also goes to everyone who donated so far, and if you’re reading this and you can help me keep this Linux news website alive, please consider donating too (any amount is welcome).

It’s June already, and it has been a really great first week with new distro releases, including for Arch Linux, Tails, Clonezilla Live, Kali Linux, NixOS, openSUSE Leap, and Rescuezilla, as well as new app releases, including for the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Cinnamon desktop environment, NeoChat Matrix chat client, OBS Studio screen recording software, Blender 3D creation suite, and many of Xfce’s default apps.

On top of all that, I take a first look at the new COSMIC desktop environment developed by Linux hardware vendor System76 for its upcoming Pop!_OS Linux 21.04 distribution. You can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for June 6th, 2021, below!
