  • Linux gaming overlay MangoHud and the GOverlay app for managing it both have new releases up

    MangoHud, the awesome Linux overlay for OpenGL and Vulkan games has another new release. GOverlay, the FOSS application designed to make configuring MangoHud easy has also been refreshed.

    Firstly, MangoHud's release this time with v0.3.1 is quite a small one. It includes the ability to display Vulkan and OpenGL versions and the configuration now auto reloads when modified. There's also a few very helpful bug fixes to make using it smoother.

    The latest release to GOverlay is quite a big one, which brings support for many of the new options released in MangoHud 0.3.0. This includes the ability to globally enable MangoHud (only for Vulkan currently), an overhaul to the user interface, dark theme adjustments and more.

Deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Running on the Hurd was always a goal for Guix, and supporting multiple kernels is a huge maintenance burden. As such it is expected that the upcoming Guix 1.1 release will be the last version featuring the Linux-Libre kernel. Future versions of Guix System will run exclusively on the Hurd, and we expect to remove Linux-Libre entirely by Guix 2.0. The Linux kernel will still be supported when using Guix on "foreign" distributions, but it will be on a best-effort basis. We hope that other distributions will follow suit and adopt the Hurd in order to increase security and freedom for their users. Read more Also: Guix deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Plasma Mobile: How to help us!

We often get asked: “how long until the 1.0 release?”. Or: “how far away is Plasma Mobile 1.0?”. The usual answer to both these question is “It’ll be ready when it is ready”. But, really, how do we know that it is ready? Recently some of us prepared a check list of items which we consider necessary before we can declare Plasma Mobile “ready” or at rc1 status. Read more
