What’s new in the Linux 3.8.14 release?
Hacker News has a great roundup of news and updates related to Linux 3, 8, and 12.
I’ve already written about how to install the latest version of the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (LTS) based on the Ubuntu 15.10 LTS, so I’ll just highlight the major changes: The desktop has been updated to version 3.5.8, making it a little more responsive to mouse movements.
The KDE 3.13.2 Plasma 5.3.4 theme is available as an alternative for the GNOME Shell theme, while the Fedora 20 LTS edition has a few updates to the Fedora Software Update Manager (FSM) package.
This year, Ubuntu 18 was the first release to come with the full GNOME Software Update Framework, which now allows developers to deploy updates directly to users’ machines.
Ubuntu’s GNOME Shell has been the most requested theme among Linux users since it was first released, and it’s one of the most popular themes for desktop environments, too.
In fact, the Ubuntu 16.04 desktop is often mentioned as a preferred desktop environment for some Linux users, although it’s not really the most preferred among Linux distributions, either.
In this roundup, you can check out the latest versions of GNOME Shell and KDE 3, and if you want to try out the new KDE 4.2.2 theme, you’ll have to wait a little while.
Linux 3.6.24 is a security release for the Linux kernel and has a new default kernel, which will make it more secure than previous releases.
The Fedora 20 Desktop Edition has been refreshed, adding a few more packages, but also updating some older packages to the latest official release.
This is a huge update for Fedora, and while it won’t impact users’ ability to use their computers in a more secure manner, it does bring more security and stability improvements to the operating system.
A few Linux distributions and distributions based on Linux are available on the Apple App Store, including Arch Linux, Ubuntu, CentOS, and Kubuntu.
While you can now download a new version of macOS 10.14 Sierra (Sierra 10.13) using a tool called the macOS Installer, you still need to download the latest macOS from the App Store.
I’ve been enjoying using the newest version of my favorite operating system, Ubuntu Linux, which is based on Ubuntu 16, with the Ubuntu Kylin (Kylin 16) operating system based on LXDE, a lightweight desktop environment.
It’s a good alternative for a lightweight Linux system, but if you’re going to use Ubuntu for desktop work, you might want to use Kylin instead of Ubuntu.
Update: I was informed by a reader that the version of Kylin that’s available for download in the App Catalog is Kylin 17, which has been a hotfix for Ubuntu 16 for a while.
However, this is not an official release of Kylins Kylin desktop environment, so it’s still not ready for general use.
If you are still using Kylin, the official Kylin Desktop Environment (KDE) 17.10 release is also available, but it won: have more than double the number of packages (and more than twice as many libraries) as Kylin 16.
Here’s a list of the updates for various Linux distributions in this roundup: Ubuntu 16 has been made a little lighter and more portable with the release of the Xenial Xerus desktop environment and the GNOME Software Upgrade Manager.
This update includes a few new desktop environments for use with GNOME Shell 3, including GNOME Shell 4, KDE 3 and KDE 4, and the new GNOME 4.4.x release is the first to be released with an improved performance and battery life.
Ubuntu 16 also includes the KDE Plasma 5 theme.
If using Kubuntu, you now have the Kubuntu 12.04 Plasma 5 desktop environment as well.
Fedora 20, which was released on March 21, is the second Linux distribution to include a KDE 4 desktop environment instead of the KDE 3 desktop environment used in Ubuntu 16 and 17.
The Ubuntu Kylins KDE 4 Desktop Environment is also now available.
Kubuntu 12.10, a new edition of the popular Linux distribution based on Fedora 20, is now available to download from the Ubuntu Software Center.
The package contains a number of changes to the GNOME 2 Desktop Environment and the KDE 4 Plasma 5 Desktop Environment.
The release of KDE 4 is not officially supported in Fedora 20.
Another KDE 4-based Linux distribution, Kubuntu 14.04, is also in the works.
Kubuntu’s Kubuntu 13.10 and Kububuntu 13.04 distributions were originally developed for Fedora 20 and are being developed to support the latest Fedora 22 and the Linux Mint 17 releases.
