I connect to my company's VPN from time to time. I don't know the VPN technology enough to know if all my internet requests go through the VPN, or if I only go through the VPN if I access one of the machines of the private network?
Basically, I want to know if my company will know all of my web history if I am connected to their VPN.

Travis-CI builds of KDE projects on Archlinux chroot
How many of you knew that KDE has a github mirror? The mirror is useful for github users/fans (who can for example star their favorite KDE projects), but can also be useful to KDE developers who don’t care about github. I was on of them, until today. Github features an excellent integration with Travis-CI. This means that you (as github user) get for free a Continuous Integration system already up and running, waiting for your commits.
KDE 5_16.04 for Slackware-current
You may already have tried it through the PLASMA5 variant of the Slackware Live Edition which I uploaded yesterday, and here is the announcement of the addition of KDE 5_16.04 to my ‘ktown’ repository – the April release of the combined KDE Frameworks 5.21.0, Plasma 5.6.3 and Applications 16.04.0.
KDE-FreeBSD catching up
After a long struggle with digiKam (mostly because of the libmediawiki plugin), a brief struggle with KDevelop (it is well-behaved), and a careful struggle with CMake (because lots of other ports depend on it), official ports have been updated (by Tobias Berner and Raphael Kubo da Costa) with the state-of-the-art for KDE4 from the unofficial area51 repository.

OpenACC 2.0 Is In Good Shape For GCC 6, Complete With NVIDIA Offloading
On top of many other new features and various improvements to GCC 6 is also maturing OpenACC 2.0 support.
OpenACC is the parallel computing standard for heterogeneous CPU/GPU systems. Initial OpenACC 2.0 support wad added to last year's GCC 5 release while now there is much better support in GCC 6. CodeSourcery has been leading the OpenACC/NVPTX charge in GCC for the past few years in cooperation with NVIDIA Corp.
An Easy Way To Build An Ubuntu Kernel With Hopefully Better Scheduler Performance
Since the recent news about the Linux kernel being in worse shape than some people imagine, there's already been some downstream corrective action taking place. Clear Linux is one of the distributions already patching/tweaking their kernel for better scheduler performance but so far we haven't heard anything from the Ubuntu camp. Fortunately, there's been others working on their own solutions.
A Phoronix reader contacted me this week about his build_ubuntu_kernel_wastedcores script. This script makes it easier to spin your own Ubuntu custom kernel and integrates the "wasted cores" patch cited by the earlier research into the poor shape of the Linux kernel scheduler.

Ubuntu 16.04 Released: See what’s new
For those who might not be aware of that fact that Canonical keep the funkiest name for their project. All the official Ubuntu release names are like Ubuntu X.YY where is X is the Year of release Minus 2000 and YY is the Month of release. Since the date of release is not known and cannot be predicted till release, Canonical conventionally names all it release as Adjective + Animal. In Ubuntu 16.04, Xerial is an Adjective and Xerus is an Animal.
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) released
- Ubuntu Snap's Security Is Easily Circumvented Due To X11g
A long waited release Ubuntu 16.04 has finally been made available to download with some new & interesting features. Ubuntu 16.04 is a long-term supported release that means once you install Ubuntu 16.04, it's going to provide security updates, bug fixes and applications updates for 5 years with no if and but. Ubuntu and other family members' (Ubuntu Mate, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu etc.) 16.04 version can be downloaded and installed.
For obvious safety reasons, most jurisdictions across the US and the world prohibit someone from driving a car if a “video monitor” is clearly visible from the driver’s seat. Hence why even though Tesla’s 17-in center display could certainly be capable of playing videos, the automaker disabled any video playing capabilities other than the video feed from the rear camera.
It didn’t stop a hacker who recently managed to install Gentoo, a Linux-based operating system, in her car and can now play videos directly from her Model S’ 17-in display.
I am using ‘her’ here because the hacker is staying anonymous but goes by ‘Hemera’, the Greek goddess of daytime.
Ubuntu continued to dominate the headlines today with some reporting the new version being actually available and all the usual accompanying posts. One of the more interesting Ubuntu articles of the day came from Matthew Garrett who said that Snap applications could expose your private data. In other Ubuntu news, Mark Shuttleworth announced the new codename for the next release already. Elsewhere, Gentoo was hacked onto a car computer and Microsoft is hiring Linux developers.
The Fedora Cloud Working Group has decided to retire the 32-bit Cloud images. As of the Fedora 23 release, we will no longer produce the 32-bit images. We will, of course, continue to make 64-bit cloud images available.
Why are we doing this? We’ve been producing 32-bit images for years, and it’s a solved problem, right? Surely it’s as easy as “just keep doing it,” right?
According to the release notes
Thunar is the subject of a few bugs, though they all appear to revolve around similar issues. We have 2 patches applied that, while not completely fixing the issue, do lessen the impact.
I know Thunar used to crash a lot during copy/paste and it looks like the devs haven't repaired it. So, can you say that the newest Xubuntu is stable at all? I don't want to install the second file manager because it won't be integrated well with Xubuntu.submitted by /u/onixfan2137
Ireland’s police force, An Garda Síochána, is tentatively considering using the open source version of SugarCMR for more of its web services. The police force has been using the software for its eVetting project since 2013, after comparing its costs and support options with proprietary alternatives.
