Roundup March 13th 2022

The seventy-six installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on March 13th, 2022, 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 yet another awesome week, for liking and sharing our articles on social media, for sending tips and suggestions, for all your comments, and last but not least for your continued support.

This week was a bit slow in Linux news and releases, but we got a few major ones like the Mozilla Firefox 98 web browser with new optimized download flow, a new VLC Media Player release with a bunch of goodies, as well as the Mess 22 graphics stack for better gaming.

On top of that, Blender 3.1 arrived with lots of performance improvements, Zorin OS and IPFire both received a new kernel for better hardware support, Kali Linux received file system snapshots, KDE fans got a few nice updates to their Plasma desktop and related apps, and Ubuntu users are now patched against “Dirty Pipe” flaw.

You can enjoy this and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for March 13th, 2022, below!
