This week was all about software releases as VirtualBox 7.0 arrived with major changes, followed by the KDE Plasma 5.26 desktop environment, which is already hitting the stable repositories of popular distributions, as well as Ardour 7.0 digital audio workstation with its awesome new features for music production.

On top of that, we got new maintenance updates of the KDE Gear 22.08 software suite and LibreOffice 7.4 office suite, a new feature-branch NVIDIA graphics driver, and new kernel security vulnerabilities for Ubuntu users.

Last but not least, the upcoming Linux 6.1 kernel saw its first Release Candidate and Blender 3.4 promises native Wayland support on Linux. Below, you can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for October 16th, 2022.
