Although similar to Indicator MultiLoad, a tool we featured in our list of 11 must-have Ubuntu power-ups, SysMonitor eschews fancier graphical touches, like usage graphs and theming options. Instead, the app offers a more extensible approach by letting users add and display custom sensor commands.
We discussed the future of the Empathy IM client used as the default chat application in the GNOME desktop environment and many popular Linux distributions that rely on GNOME packages, such as Ubuntu, a couple of weeks ago.
The final version of QEMU 2.3.0, an open source machine emulator and virtualizer software for GNU/Linux operating systems, was announced today, April 27, by the QEMU development team, through Michael Roth.
Audio on Linux is pretty complex. Everything interacts with the Pulse Audio Sound Server. Many different audio devices and programs all communicate with your speaker system from there. Everything is nice and usually sounds great – at least for the most part.
The Git development team has announced the immediate availability for download of the seventh maintenance release for the stable 2.3 branch of the acclaimed Git open source distributed version control system used by developers worldwide.

Sol, a new platformer with a cheery sense of humor and with plenty of throwbacks to games of yesteryear, has been released. Most strikingly, the game features a myriad of accessibility options and is licensed under the GPLv3.
