GNU cryptocurrency aims at 'the mainstream economy not the black market'
GNU and an outfit called “Inria” have released Alpha code – version 0.0.0 to be precise – of an anonymous-but-taxable electronic payments system they say is “a currency for the mainstream economy, and not the black market.”
“Taler”, as the effort is dubbed, looks to be an attempt to build on the concepts behind Bitcoin. So while Taler lets you use encrypted “coins” as a means of exchange, it is explicitly not a new currency. Instead, it “... uses an electronic exchange holding financial reserves in existing currencies.”

Reddit: What is a good online resource to keep track of all new software updates and releases outside official repos that provide a Linux version?
I have been noticing that there is quite a lot more software available for Linux outside of official repos than I thought.
For instance some interesting notetaking tools, such as TagSpaces, Laverna, NixNote, GitBook, all of them are not in distros repositories but provide a bundled tar.gz archive that can simply be extracted and run on Linux. In web browsers we have Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi and Firefox Beta/Dev.
However, I haven't found a centralised resource to browse for this "extra" software, I only get to know it exists by spending some minutes Googling or stumbling upon a reddit thread where it's mentioned. Is there some website or central database that keeps track of all new releases and updates for Linux?submitted by /u/luxitanium
