See what's new in Ubuntu OTA-13, the latest update to the Ubuntu touch operating system for phones and tablets.
Today, September 19, 2016, Canonical was supposed to launch the OTA-13 update for Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu Tablet devices, but it didn't happen. Lukasz Zemczak is back, and he informs us that the update should arrive for all users later this week.
However, Canonical did publish the complete list of new features implemented in the Ubuntu Touch OTA-13 update, and we would like to tell you all about them. Let's start with the copy/paste support, which has been updated to work with legacy X11 applications as well.
Just a few moments ago (September 19, 2016), Canonical published several security advisories to inform the Ubuntu Linux community about the availability of new Linux kernel updates for all supported Ubuntu releases.

Ubuntu OTA-13 introduces Copy and Paste on legacy applications, Korean and Latvian keyboards, an improved Emoji keyboard and various app startup time improvements (calendar, calculator, camera, dialer). The release also brings with it various synchronization improvements: users will now be able to sync multiple calendars and have the option to sync these calendars with the open-source cloud solution, OwnCloud.

The system also includes a 1TB PiDrive HDD from WDLabs, and a SanDisk microSD loaded with Snappy. Apache, MySQL and Nextcloud 10 are pre-installed on the HDD.
I’m pleased to learn that Ubuntu has just updated WebKitGTK+ from 2.10.9 to 2.12.5 in Ubuntu 16.04. To my knowledge, this is the first time Ubuntu has released a major WebKit update. It includes fixes for 16 security vulnerabilities detailed in WSA-2016-0004 and WSA-2016-0005.
Cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive make it easy to store your files online and access them across a range of devices.

Considered a research experiment rather than the first drum roll in a fully autonomous automotive revolution, Uber plan to use the data it gleans in the lifts — free for passengers willing to trust them — in order to learn more about how self driving cars behave and react when in the real world on real asphalt and under real driving conditions.
In Mashable’s first-hand account of what’s it’s like to be take a ride in a self-driving Uber you’ll notice that, like Tesla, that Ubuntu helps power Uber’s self driving smarts.
And TechCrunch’s Signe Brewster, in a write up of her experience in the same vehicle, says she “came away from my ride trusting the technology. The self-driving car detected obstacles, people and even potholes, and responded intelligently.“
