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.

The AMD Radeon R9 Fury Is Currently A Disaster On Linux

When AMD announced the Radeon R9 Fury line-up powered by the "Fiji" GPU with High Bandwidth Memory, I was genuinely very excited to get my hands on this graphics card. The tech sounded great and offered up a lot of potential, and once finally finding an R9 Fury in stock, shelled out nearly $600 for this graphics card. Unfortunately though, thanks to the current state of the Catalyst Linux driver, the R9 Fury on Linux is a gigantic waste for OpenGL workloads. The R9 Fury results only exemplifies the hideous state of AMD's OpenGL support for their Catalyst Linux driver with a NVIDIA graphics card costing $200 less consistently delivering better gaming performance.
