Flock 0.5.11 Released

Filed under
Software

Welcome to the 0.5.11 release of Flock.

We've got some new goodies since 0.4.10.

*New Online Favorites Service

Flock 0.5.11 has support for the Shadows.com favorite sharing service, and offers continued support for del.icio.us.

*Your Favorites, To Go - with Privacy

For each favorite, you can now choose to either store it online or keep it local. Better yet, Shadows lets you keep your online favorites private, so you can get your favorites from any computer without publishing them to the world. Shadows also stores your Flock collection structure. The net effect: if you're using Shadows, you can get your favorites "to go."

*Import Firefox Settings

Flock 0.5.11 imports your bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc. from Firefox and other browsers. Flock tags your imported bookmarks based on Firefox folder names, and lets you find them from the ol' search box.

*Firefox 1.5-Style Auto-Update

Flock 0.5.11 uses the same cool auto-update system as Firefox 1.5.

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2. We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
