Filed under
Ubuntu

Today, July 4, 2016, Canonical's Zygmunt Krynicki has had the pleasure of announcing that the Snappy implementation for Ubuntu Linux has been updated to snapd 2.0.10.

snapd 2.0.10 comes two weeks after the release of the 2.0.9 version, which introduced full Snap confinement on the elementary OS 0.4 "Loki" operating system, among several other goodies. However, the most interesting part of today's announcement for snapd 2.0.10 is that it also landed for Fedora 24 users in the COPR repository.

  • HOWTO: Host your own SNAP store!

    SNAPs are the cross-distro, cross-cloud, cross-device Linux packaging format of the future. And we're already hosting a fantastic catalog of SNAPs in the SNAP store provided by Canonical. Developers are welcome to publish their software for distribution across hundreds millions of Ubuntu servers, desktops, and devices.

    Several people have asked the inevitable open source software question, "SNAPs are awesome, but how can I stand up my own SNAP store?!?"

    The answer is really quite simple... SNAP stores are really just HTTP web servers! Of course, you can get fancy with branding, and authentication, and certificates. But if you just want to host SNAPs and enable downstream users to fetch and install software, well, it's pretty trivial.

  • The Open(Snap)Store

    There has been a major update to the OpenStore today. We now fully support snaps! Due to the huge push by Ubuntu and Canonical around snaps recently, we decided to integrate snaps into the OpenStore. Thanks to some work by Marius Gripsgård (mariogrip) parsing data from snap packages was super easy (check out the click-parser library). After that it was just a matter of integrating snaps fully into the website.

One of the significant new features is the removal of tools which make it easy to (accidentally) install software which has not been vetted.

  • End of an era: Linux distributions will soon stop supporting 32-bit PCs

    AMD and Intel released the first 64-bit CPUs for consumers back in 2003 and 2004. Now, more than a decade later, Linux distributions are looking at winding down support for 32-bit hardware.

    Google already took this leap back in 2015, dumping 32-bit versions of Chrome for Linux.

  • Linux Mint 18 Brings Mint-Y Theme to Linux Deskto

    The Linux Mint 18 milestone release is the first major update for the popular desktop Linux distribution in 2016 and follows the Linux Mint 17.3 update that debuted in December 2015. Linux Mint 18 is based on the Ubuntu 16.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Linux distribution released April 21 and, like Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint 18 is being supported as an LTS, with support until the year 2021. As was the case with previous Linux Mint distribution updates, there are multiple desktop environment choices. Cinnamon 3.0, which is developed by Linux Mint and typically is the primary deployment choice for users, brings new window tiling capabilities and default effects for window transitions and actions. Additionally, Linux Mint 18 includes a new desktop theme option called Mint-Y that brings newly styled icons to users. In terms of new integrated applications, Linux Mint 18 includes the gufw application, a graphical interface for firewall configuration. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Linux Mint 18.

  • Exclusive: Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition Promo Images Surface

    Meizu had introduced three new smartphones back in April, the Meizu M3, M3 Note and the PRO 6 flagship. This China-based company is expected to introduce a couple of more devices this year, and the Meizu MX6 handset seems to be the next in line. Its predecessor was announced back in July 2015, and it sported a really compelling spec sheet, while it wasn’t that expensive at all. The Meizu MX5 shipped with a 5.5-inch fullHD display, 3GB of RAM and the Helio X10 64-bit octa-core processor, which was MediaTek’s flagship processor back then. The MX5 also came with a full metal body, and its 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera was also quite capable.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
