  • Qt 5.6 released

    I’m happy to announce that Qt 5.6.0 has been released today! This release has taken a bit longer to finish than we originally expected, mostly because we put a lot of new infrastructure in place, allowing us to make Qt 5.6 a Long Term Supported (LTS) release. With that, Qt 5.6 (LTS) will be receiving patch releases with security updates and bug fixes for the next three years, in parallel to upcoming Qt versions. Today, with Qt 5.6, we’ve now also made our new offering for start-ups and small businesses available!

  • GNOME 3.20 Release Candidate Now Available

    Being well past the various freezes, today's GNOME 3.20 release candidate doesn't offer much more than bug fixes and translation updates. If you aren't familiar with the new work added earlier in the GNOME 3.19 development cycle for GNOME 3.20, see our many GNOME 3.20 articles. There is much-improved support for native Wayland on GNOME, many improvements to GNOME's many applications, and other enhancements throughout the stack.

  • New VPN Feature Coming In The Ubuntu Touch OTA-10

    According to Marius of Softpedia, there will be a VPN panel in the System Settings after installing the OTA-10 update on devices. Other than that, the update includes improvement to pay and location services, better support for Web Apps in the Browser app, the EDS Plugin for Qt PIM module’s Organizer and improvements to Indicator-Datetime. The VPN feature though stands out of the rest and was first cited by Softpedia last year.

  • Extreme downhill free-riding game 'Descenders' just had a huge update, needs a quick fix on Linux
    Descenders is an extreme downhill free-riding game currently in Early Access and their first major update just went live. I've been quite a big fan of it, as it showed a massive amount of promise at the initial release. I held off on covering this update right away, since the released version of the update broke the 64bit Linux version. Nearly a week later and no fix, so here's how you can fix it manually: Right click on it in your Steam library and go to properties, then hit the Local Files tab up the top and press Browse Local Files… once there, open the Descenders_Data folder, go into the Plugins folder and delete "libfmod.so".
  • WolfenDoom - Blade of Agony is looking for AMD testers
    The GZDoom-powered FPS total conversion WolfenDoom: Blade of Agony [Official Site] is pushing on with development of Chapter 3: The Clash of Faith.
  • Open-world roguelike RPG 'Stoneshard' will have Linux support, nearly hit the Kickstarter goal
    Stoneshard [Official Site] is a pretty good sounding open-world RPG, it's currently on Kickstarter with a promise of Linux support and they've nearly hit their goal. With 26 days left to go, they've hit $28K of their $30K goal, so it looks like they will manage it easily. Inspired by the likes of Diablo, ADOM, Darkest Dungeon and more, they have a lot to live up to in terms of their inspiration. What makes it sound quite interesting, is the survival elements you heal to deal with like diseases, broken bones, mental health and more.
