Slack

Among all the posts announcing the release of Ubuntu 11.04 was the few that acknowledged the release of Slackware 13.37. Slackware continues to boast a loyal following because of its rock hard stability and security. It was once known as not the best choice for beginners, but has become quite easy and carefree over the years. Perhaps Slackware's most notable characteristic is its practice of providing a turn-key system that doesn't alter the original developers' work.

This release brings users KDE 4.5.5, Xfce 4.6.2, Linux 2.6.37.6, X.Org X Server 1.9.5, GCC 4.5.2, Qt 4.7.0, Firefox 4, GIMP 2.6.11, KOffice, Xine, MPlayer, Audacious, and Juk. It also includes some lesser known applications such as Skanlite, Geeqie, Pan, XMMS, and SeaMonkey. Those that wish others can use slackpkg to search and install software from remote mirrors in the tradition of APT.

Can funding open source bug bounties save Europe from mass-surveillance?

The report also suggests promoting open-source software as a way to build resilience to surveillance, which could be achieved by funding audits of important open-source software. Among several products it highlights is disk encryption software, TrueCrypt, which was recently subjected to a crowd-funded audit that was able to rule out the existence of NSA backdoors in the product. “TrueCrypt is a typical example of a problem of the commons: worldwide use of software package was probably dependent on two or three developers,” the study notes to highlight why funding open source projects may be valuable.
