Unix and Linux News

- I seem to have forgotten Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 beta in my previous digest
- Bash 5.0 got released! Not just any software, but one of the most popular Unix shells!
- LetsEncrypt (my SSL provider of choice for all the self-hosted elements) reported 2018 progress and LetsEncrypt 2019 plans – 150M websites are using them now, impressive!
- in mid January, 4 issues with SCP in OpenSSH, Putty and WinSCP were discovered. Hope you were not affected!

- Wine 4.0 got released, quickly followed up by Wine Staging 4.0.
- Kodi 18 platform got released, followed by LibreELEC 9.0.0 based on it
