  • Enso OS 0.3.1 – Using Xfce Desktop 4.12 and Based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

    Enso OS 0.3.1 is the latest release of Enso OS, This release based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS features Xfce 4.12 as default desktop environment combined with Gala, a Mutter-based window/compositing manager designed for use in Elementary OS.

    The most notable changes are within the application management, a fork of the Elementary project’s AppCenter. Dubbed “AppHive” in Enso OS, it has native Snap support. The category selector (a list view on the left-hand side) displays nice colors, and there is an added Games category.

    The greeting application will now autofocus into the password input text box on load, the default avatar has been updated to be more generic and the guest user and additional users’ selection have been disabled by default to make the screen look less busy and the clock will position itself better on smaller screen sizes.

Budgie 10.5.2 Desktop Environment Released with Support for the GNOME 3.38 Stack

More than a year in the works, Budgie 10.5.2 is here with a wide range of changes, starting with support for GNOME Project’s latest GNOME 3.38 stack. However, Budgie still supports the older GNOME 3.36 stack to make it easier for Linux OS maintainers to backport it to older operating systems. The biggest new feature in this release is the new desktop icons implementation called Budgie Desktop View. While an initial release, it already supports single (default) or double-click for launching items. However, future releases will bring drag and drop support, keyboard navigation, and GTK4 support.

Canonical Releases Major Ubuntu Kernel Updates to Address 14 Vulnerabilities

A total of 14 security vulnerabilities have been fixed in these new major Ubuntu kernel updates, including a race condition (CVE-2020-0423) that may lead to a use-after-free vulnerability, discovered in Linux kernel’s binder IPC implementation. This flaw affects Ubuntu 20.10, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS systems, and could allow a local attacker to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Affecting all supported Ubuntu releases, this kernel update addresses a Bluetooth security vulnerability (CVE-2020-10135) discovered by Daniele Antonioli, Nils Ole Tippenhauer, and Kasper Rasmussen, which could allow a physically proximate attacker to impersonate a previously paired Bluetooth device.
