Late coverage of this

  • Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo End of Life- JAN 2020

    Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo– It is been 9 months from the date of release of the interim release from Canonical, the Ubuntu 19.04 codenamed Disco Dingo. Through all the positive and negative critics, Ubuntu 19.04 has done its job very well. Disco Dingo was released on April 18, 2019, with a lot of latest updates that included GNOME desktop 3.32, Trackers by default, Safe Graphics Mode, Yaru theme with updates and refinement and a lot more. Throughout its journey, Disco Dingo did well and it is time to bid farewell to it. Though the end of life cycle of Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo is mentioned as January 2020, there is no official confirmation from Canonical about the exact date of the end of life of the Disco Dingo.

    Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo reaches its end by the end of January 2020. The date is not released by Canonical yet.

Ubuntu 19.04 ‘Disco Dingo' reaches end-of-life this month

  • Ubuntu 19.04 ‘Disco Dingo' reaches end-of-life this month, be sure to upgrade now

    Canonical has announced that Ubuntu 19.04 ‘Disco Dingo’ will reach its end-of-life on January 23, 2020. If you’re still using this version of Ubuntu, which was released last April, you’ll want to make sure you upgrade before the deadline in order to keep getting new security updates. Upgrading Ubuntu isn’t too difficult, you just need to head to the update manager and follow the instructions after pressing upgrade.

    Canonical provides detailed upgrade instructions but to summarise, ensure that you’ve applied any available patches, then read the Ubuntu 19.10 release notes for any issues that could occur. While the upgrade should be available from the update manager, you may need to press Settings inside the update manager and ensure ‘Notify me of a new Ubuntu version:’ is set to ‘For any new version’, you can find that setting in the Updates sub-menu.

    For most people, Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Support) releases are best to use because they are the most stable and receive updates for at least five years. Non-LTS versions like Ubuntu 19.04 are stable too but only receive updates for nine months and act as a sort of testing ground for new features before they’re introduced into the next LTS release which businesses and other formal users tend to opt for.

Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) End of Life reached on January 23

  • Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) End of Life reached on January 23 2020

    This is a follow-up to the End of Life warning sent earlier this month to confirm that as of today (Jan 23, 2020), Ubuntu 19.04 is no longer supported. No more package updates will be accepted to 19.04, and it will be archived to in the coming weeks.

    The original End of Life warning follows, with upgrade instructions:

    Ubuntu announced its 19.04 (Disco Dingo) release almost 9 months ago, on April 18, 2019. As a non-LTS release, 19.04 has a 9-month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 19.04 will reach end of life on Thursday, Jan 23rd.

    At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 19.04.

Canonical Kills Off Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo)

  • Canonical Kills Off Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo)

    As we told you earlier this month, Ubuntu installations aren’t the only ones affected by the retirement of Disco Dingo, but also other distros based on the same release, including here the likes of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu.

    Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) is the recommended upgrade for all users, Canonical says in a security advisory published this week.

‘Disco Dingo’ of Ubuntu to reach end of life

  • ‘Disco Dingo’ of Ubuntu to reach end of life: Make sure to upgrade

    On January 23, Ubuntu ‘Disco Dingo’ is to reach its end of life. This news is released by canonical recently. If you are still using the version released in April, make sure you upgrade it before the deadline. This will keep you notified of all the latest security updates if you think that it is difficult to upgrade to Ubuntu. It is not. You just have to go to the upgrade option to see the instructions.

    How to get notified about the latest versions?

    Canonical provides a detailed guide to install the latest update and refer to the release notes in case of any issues. Go to “Settings” and select “Update manager,” click the option “Notify me of a new Ubuntu version.”

Ubuntu 19.04 Reached End of Life

  • Ubuntu 19.04 Reached End of Life, Upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10 Now

    If you’re using the Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) operating system on your personal computer or server, you should know that it has reached end of life on January 23rd, 2020. Of course, this means that Canonical will no longer provide software updates and security patches that address bugs or vulnerabilities.

    Dubbed as the “Disco Dingo,” Ubuntu 19.04 was released on April 18th, 2019, and it was supported for 9 months. Ubuntu 19.04 was the first Ubuntu release to adopt the Linux 5.0 kernel series. This added quite some goodies, including AMD FreeSync display support, advanced ARM hardware support, Btrfs swap files, support for Raspberry Pi touchscreens, and support for the Adiantum file system encryption.

    Ubuntu 19.04 also shipped with the GNOME 3.32 desktop environment, which introduced the long-anticipated fractional scaling feature, as well as an updated toolchain including GCC 8.3, Python 3.7.3 by default, Golang 1.10.4, OpenJDK 11, Glibc 2.29, etc.. Other changes included a new icon theme, improvements to the Yaru theme, a new “Safe Graphics Mode” option in the GRUB menu, and improved VMware integration.

Linux and Security

  • Why Not WireGuard

    The latest thing that is getting a lot of attention is WireGuard - the new shooting star in terms of VPN. But is it as great as it sounds? I would like to discuss some thoughts, have a look at the implementation and tell you why WireGuard is not a solution that will replace IPsec or OpenVPN. In this article I would like to debunk the myths. It is a long read. If you are in need of a tea of coffee, now is the time to make it. Thanks to Peter for proof-reading my chaotic thoughts. I do not want to discredit the developers of WireGuard for their efforts or for their ideas. It is a working piece of technology, but I personally think that it is being presented as something entirely different - as a replacement for IPsec and OpenVPN which it simply is not. As a side-note, I think that the media is responsible for this and not the WireGuard project itself. There has not been much positive news around the Linux kernel recently. They have reported of crushing processor vulnerabilities that have been mitigated in software, Linus Torvalds using too harsh language and just boring developer things. The scheduler or a zero-copy network stack are not very approachable topics for a glossy magazine. WireGuard is.

  • Integrating MongoDB with Python Using PyMongo

    In this post, we will dive into MongoDB as a data store from a Python perspective. To that end, we'll write a simple script to showcase what we can achieve and any benefits we can reap from it. Web applications, like many other software applications, are powered by data. The organization and storage of this data are important as they dictate how we interact with the various applications at our disposal. The kind of data handled can also have an influence on how we undertake this process. Databases allow us to organize and store this data, while also controlling how we store, access, and secure the information.

    Since its start in 2018, the PyCon US Hatchery Program has become a fundamental part of how PyCon as a conference adapts to best serve the Python community as it grows and changes with time. In keeping with that focus on innovation, the Hatchery Program itself has continued to evolve. Initially we wanted to gauge community interest for this type of program, and in 2018 we launched our first trial program to learn more about what kind of events the community might propose. At the end of that inaugural program, we accepted the PyCon Charlas as our first Hatchery event and it has grown into a permanent track offered at PyCon US.

  • Using "python -m" in Wing 7.2

    Wing version 7.2 has been released, and the next couple Wing Tips look at some of its new features. We've already looked at reformatting with Black and YAPF and Wing 7.2's expanded support for virtualenv. Now let's look at how to set up debugging modules that need to be launched with python -m. This command line option for Python allows searching the Python Path for the name of a module or package, and then loading and executing it. This capability was introduced way back in Python 2.4, and then extended in Python 2.5 through PEP 338 . However, it only came into widespread use relatively recently, for example to launch venv, black, or other command line tools that are shipped as Python packages.

  • New Python Programmer? Learn These Concepts First.

    As a novice Python developer, the world is your oyster with regards to the type of applications that you can create. Despite its age (30 years—an eternity in tech-world terms), Python remains a dominant programming language, with companies using it for all kinds of services, platforms, and applications. For example, Python lets you create web applications via Django or other frameworks such as Flask. Perhaps you want to create games instead? For that, learn Pygame for 2D games (or Panda3D for 3D). Or maybe you’re more enterprise-minded, and want to create useful utilities (such as automatically cataloguing e-books); in that case, Python works well with frameworks and software such as Calibre.
