November 2019 has been rather slow here on the blog – lots of projects at work ahead of the usual change freezes and upcoming holiday season. I'm regularly bookmarking things that can become interesting projects, so expect it to be a very educational Christmas season – lots of things to learn and to try in Unix Tutorial world.
Unix and Linux News
I have started a new category on Unix Tutorial – called New Releases, that's where OS upgrades and Linux kernel releases will be announced going forward (they're still blog posts).
- Linux Kernel 5.4 is here
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1 released
- OpenIndiana 2019.10 arrived
- Debian 10.2 released
- Brave 1.0 browser got finally released – I'm a daily user and find it pretty great, although ads are still annoying and intrusive – so definitely room for improvement
- GitHub launched Security Lab
- PHP 7.4 released
- Glimpse 0.1.0 is out – this is a fork of the GIMP graphics editor, easily the most well know and powerful open source editor. Will be interesting to follow the direction the new team is taking.
