Docker surprises everyone, new Fedora tools in the works, and an old debate with a fresh take.
- Docker rebounds with $105m Series C funding and $2.1b value — Troubled container company may escape confines of its doldrums
- LXD 5.0 LTS has been released — This is our 4th LTS release and quite an exciting one for anyone coming from LXD 4.0 as it significantly steps up LXD’s abilities, especially when operating in clustered environments.
- Anaconda is getting a new suit and a wizard — Before starting the redesign work for the Anaconda installer, the team reviewed user feedback and usability study data that we’ve gathered over the years.
- Fedora Workstation Brainstorming A Possible GUI-Based Linux Recovery Environment — This currently hypothetical GUI-driven recovery environment sounds like it could almost be like Apple’s macOS recovery mode in that there may be the possibility of even downloading a new system image from this environment.
- Fwupd 1.7.7 Released For Firmware Updating More Logitech Devices On Linux - Phoronix
- Lutris 0.5.10 Released With Steam Deck Support — Lutris 0.5.10 brings proper Steam Deck support thanks to their collaboration with Valve and receiving a Steam Deck developer kit. Lutris’ Flatpak version is still being improved upon as the next step in enhancing the Steam Deck support for this game manager.
- Mathieu Comandon on Twitter — We gotta stop this culture of “only install Flatpaks / using root is dangerous” before it extends beyond the Steam Deck. Last thing I want is for desktop Linux to become like Android or ChromeOS.
