Roundup March 27th 2022

The seventy-eight installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on March 27th, 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 keep be awesome and for supporting us this week by posting comments, liking and sharing our posts, sending tips and suggestions, and last but not least for following and retweeting our posts on social media. We’re nearing 20K followers and Twitter and I couldn’t be happier, thanks to you, of course!

This has been a great week for Linux news and releases following last week’s slowest pace of the year. We saw the release of the amazing GNOME 42 desktop environment with all of its goodies, which already landed in Clear Linux and openSUSE Tumbleweed, and we got a new Debian Bullseye release, version 11.3, packed with all the latest security updates.

GNOME 41 users also received a new point release with more bug fixes, Ubuntu users received a major Linux kernel security update that patched up to 22 vulnerabilities, Linux gamers got a new DXVK release that improves support for their favorite games, and NVIDIA GPU users got a brand-new driver release with support for new graphics cards.

On top of that, I show you how to install the latest Linux 5.17 kernel on Ubuntu. You can enjoy this and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for March 27th, 2022, below!
