techdrivein.com: Nautilus Elementary is probably the best thing happened to Gnome's very own file browser in a long time. I gave it a go in the just released Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" RC and I was quite taken aback by the amount of improvements with the new Nautilus Elementary.

Linux 4.17 RC6

  • Linux 4.17-rc6
    Things continue to be fairly calm. There's a couple of commits in here that aren't "trivial few-liners", but most of it really is pretty small. And in fact, a quarter of the full patch for the week is tooling - and the bulk of that is the testing subdirectory. In fact, drivers are in the minority here, because another 30% is arch updates (arm, s390, x86), and we even have more lines of filesystem fixes than we have driver fixes (admittedly mostly due to a few of the more-than-a-few-liner patches being to filesystems: afs and btrfs). We do have a few driver fixes (all over - hwmon, usb, sound, acpi, gpu), but it's all really small. So nothing special to report. Go read the shortlog, pull the changes, build, and test. It should all be good and pretty stable by this point. Linus
  • Linux 4.17-rc6 Kernel Released As Another "Fairly Calm" Release
    Linux 4.17 is up to its sixth weekly release candidate ahead of the official release expected by mid-June.
