  • Linux Release Roundup: Cozy, MuPDF, Atom + More
    It’s a Sunday, which means it’s time for me to round-up a rabble of recent Linux releases that did get a mention during the week. With a lot of people busy getting ready for Christmas (and other festivals that happen this time of year) there aren’t too many major releases to mention from the past week, but there is a modest set of minor updates issued you may want to know about. This might be the final Linux Release Roundup before Xmas. If, like some sort of weekly Santa, you only pop by to read these posts I’ll use this moment to say thank you, and wish you a merry denomatively-appropriate holiday.
