  • 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.

GNOME Shell vs. KDE Plasma Graphics Tests On Wayland vs. X.Org Server

A premium member this week had requested some benchmarks of openSUSE Tumbleweed when looking at the performance of KDE Plasma vs. GNOME Shell in some open-source graphics/gaming tests while also looking at the Wayland vs. X.Org Server performance. With KDE Plasma 5.12 that openSUSE Tumbleweed has picked up, there is much better Wayland session support compared to previous releases. While KDE developers aren't yet ready to declare their Wayland session the default, in my experience so far it's been working out very well but still routinely will find application crashes in Kate and the like when testing under the KWin's Wayland compositor.
