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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Offers Great Linux Performance

Since last month's Linux review of the GeForce GTX 980 as NVIDIA's newest high-end GPU powered by their Maxwell architecture, many Phoronix readers have been requesting Ubuntu Linux tests of the GTX 970 too. I've now got my hands on an EVGA GeForce GTX 970 and am putting it through its paces today. Read more

GTK+ Gains Experimental Overlay Scrollbars

The overlay scrollbar work that was committed on Monday is about improving the scrolling experience for those using GTK+ applications from touch screens. This prototype widget allows for showing a scroll position indicator on touch screens while hiding the scrollbar -- it sounds similar to Ubuntu's GTK2/GTK3 overlay scrollbar support for Unity.

3 Alternatives to the Adobe PDF Reader on Linux

Adobe has pulled the plug on supporting its PDF reader app for Linux. This should come as no surprise, as the last time Adobe Reader for Linux was updated came in May 2013. But until recently, you could at least download and install Reader on your Linux desktop machine. Now? You can’t. If you go to the Adobe Reader site, you’ll find the Linux installer is no longer available. Read more
