This week we share a big project that blew up in our face, the technical speed bumps we faced & the ultimate goal to accomplish something a Mac could never do.
Plus the big snap sprint that might just push the format over the edge, a quick look at Korora 24 & more!

Desktop App Pick
EncryptPad is an application for viewing and editing symmetrically encrypted text. It also provides a tool for encrypting and decrypting binary files on disk. The application offers effective measures for protecting information with simple and convenient graphical and command line interface. The editor uses most widely chosen quality file format OpenPGP RFC 4880. Unlike other OpenPGP software which main purpose is asymmetric encryption, the primary focus of EncryptPad is symmetric encryption.

Snap Sprint A Big Success
- Arch Linux
- Blue Systems
- openSUSE (OpenSUSE OBS can build snaps)
- Frank Karlitschek from nextcloud met w/folks RE: NextCloud snap
So this week I worked in order to port the apparmor patches to the linux-lts kernel so I create some AUR package in order to have confinement working.
I also had to make upstream fix some weird bugs, eventually it was a complete success and confinement works perfectly.
Last day of the Snappy Sprint and the meta topic (in the track I’m following) is the review and continuation of the community outreach. We’ve heard more from KDE about their roadmap for snaps, snapd improvements for Fedora, integrating community snaps into the +Snapcraft CI to broaden the automated testing, dogfooding snaps and Snappy Schwaag!
I’ve left the Snappy Sprint with a clear understanding of the road ahead, an enthusiasm and commitment to be a part of the snap journey, and most importantly, some great new friendships. Keep your ear to the ground about snaps, there is certainly big news to follow in the not too distant future…
One of the key features worked on this week was Content Sharing. This is delivered via the Content Interface and is the mechanism by which “shared library” or runtime snaps are possible.
In addition to the bugs listed below, this update includes all security updates from the Ubuntu Security Notice list affecting Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that were released up to and including July 19, 2016.
The National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) has given Microsoft 3 months to get its act together and to get compliant with the French Data Protection Act.
