Weekly Roundup October 18th


The third installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here, for the week ending October 18th to keep you guys up to date with the most important things that have happened lately in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s Weekly Roundup, you can check it out here.

This week saw the release of a new major Linux kernel series, as well a some interesting app and distro releases, and you can check them all out below. As usual, I’ll kick off the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup for October 18th, 2020, with a big THANK YOU to the new donors.

Thank you!

This week I received three more donations, thanks to Nitrux, Chad McCullough, and Bellinzaghi Luca. Thank you so much again for your support guys through this challenging time!

Also, I want to thank everyone who followed us on social media, we passed 4K followers on Twitter this week and that’s huge. You can follow 9to5Linux on almost all major social and news channels through the top sidebar widget.

If you want to support me, please consider donating to keep this FOSS/Linux website alive for as long as possible. Any amount is welcome!

Website changes

This week I discovered a bug with the search filed’s input text when using the night mode. When no search results were returned and you wanted to correct or change the search terms, the text was displayed in dark, and therefore invisible to the naked eye. To address this issue, I changed the text color’s to 9to5Linux’s brand color.
