  • Linux 5.2 Ups Laptop Support From A New Intel Power Button Driver To Better Ryzen Input

    Both Intel and AMD laptop hardware are seeing various improvements coming with the in-development Linux 5.2 kernel.

    Vulkan 1.1.108 does bring with it a number of clarifications and corrections to the documentation itself. The Vulkan 1.1.108 changes appear mostly routine and nothing too notable when it comes to the fixes.
