Ubuntu: Ora as a Snap, Community Theme, and LXD

  • Ora as a snap: ensuring users are benefiting from the latest version
    Ora is a user-friendly task management service with integrated time-tracking, reports, list view, git integrations and many other features.

Last month, Ora launched their application as a snap and thereby broadening out their reach across the Linux user base. We spoke to Nikolay Mihaylov, co-founder at Ora, who told us more about their reasons to publish a snap and how it will help Ora move forward.

  • LXD weekly status #44
    Another week of bugfixes for us as more and more people update to the 3.0 releases! Quite a bit of work went into improving the handling of the two database in LXD 3.0, making it easier for us to debug issues and provide fixes to our users when something goes wrong. Work is also continuing on the new backup/restore API for LXD with it hopefully landing later this week. We’re also excited to see LXD debuts on the Chromebooks through the new Crostini feature. This also led to a minor change to LXD to allow restricting users to unprivileged containers as was needed for those users.

The distribution is now powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.9.76 kernel, and users can disable the KPTI patch at boot. Read more
