DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 529

Filed under

Welcome to this year's 41st issue of DistroWatch Weekly! The Ubuntu distribution is well known for its experimental (and sometimes controversial) nature. However, with the approach of Ubuntu's next long term support release (scheduled for April 2014), the developers are planning a more conservative path. Read on as Jesse Smith discusses Mir, Ubuntu's new display server, and the community's reaction to its delay.

In this issue of DistroWatch Weekly we talk about openSUSE's participation in this year's Summer of Code and the interesting results which grew out of their involvement. We also bring news of developments in the FreeBSD community where new file system and stack protection software are being introduced. Plus we offer tips on rescuing deleted files and discovering attached storage devices in our Questions and Answers section. As usual, we bring you news of recent distribution releases and look forward to new releases around the corner. We wish you all a wonderful week and happy reading!
