  • 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

There is much-improved support for native Wayland on GNOME, many improvements to GNOME's many applications, and other enhancements throughout the stack.

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.
