Slight Site Changes

Filed under
News

Yesterday, following a mostly successful migration (there are still some impending fixes to .htaccess), slight changes were applied. For regular readers of the site, here they are summarised:

  • The menu bar (horizontal) has been augmented somewhat
  • Some site pages (static) were improved
  • Some sidebar contents were abbreviated, RSS feeds made easier to find
  • Twitter account tidied up a bit
  • Linux Monthly Screenshots updated
  • The new Web host is endorsed

Any feedback you may have would be taken seriously, so feel free to shout at us any time of the day.

Sadly, spammers continue to run scripts that attempt to create new user accounts and spam the site. If you want a site account created, then please get in touch and we'll do this manually.

Thanks for choosing Tux Machines for your news and information gathering. We do our best to separate important stories from dross.

Thank you

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
