Get Ubuntu 16.04.1, Linux Mint 18.1, elementary OS 0.4 & Zorin OS 12 on One ISO
After informing Softpedia about the availability of the Linux AIO Ubuntu 16.10 and Linux AIO Ubuntu 14.04.5 Live DVDs, Željko Popivoda from the Linux AIO team is announcing the initial release of Linux AIO Ubuntu Mixture 2017.01.
What's Linux AIO Ubuntu Mixture 2017.01, you may wonder? Well, let us tell you that it's something special, something that you've never experienced before. If until now Linux AIO provided the community with unique Live ISO images containing the essential flavors of a single GNU/Linux distribution, this changes today.
Steam's Recent Linux Changes Have Been Promoted To Stable
At the beginning of 2017 Valve released a Steam client beta with noteworthy Linux improvements. With today's Steam stable client update, all of those changes are included.
The big winner with this stable client update is improved interaction between the Steam runtime and host distribution libraries. This should let those using open-source graphics drivers on modern distributions work nicely with Steam without needing to remove any files or set extra environment variables. The old behavior can be restored though for older Linux distributions or if encountering any problems.
Also: Valve Rebases SteamOS on Debian GNU/Linux 8.7, Adds Mesa 13.0.3 & Nvidia 375.26
Qt Speech (Text to Speech) is here
I’m happy that with Qt 5.8.0 we’ll have Qt Speech added as a new tech preview module. It took a while to get it in shape since the poor thing sometimes did not get the attention it deserved. We had trouble with some Android builds before that backend received proper care. Luckily there’s always the great Qt community to help out.
