Submission + - Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Released

prisoninmate writes: If you've been using Ubuntu 16.10 on your personal computer(s) until today, the time has come to upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04, which is a powerful release, both inside and outside. It's powered by the latest stable Linux 4.10 kernel series, and ships with an up-to-date graphics stack based on X.Org Server 1.19.3 and Mesa 17.0.3. Only these three new technologies mentioned above are the only reason some of you out there gaming with AMD Radeon graphics cards need to upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) right now. But the operating system ships only with up-to-date components and applications. Default desktop environment remains Unity 7, so your beloved Ubuntu desktop environment is not going anyway at the moment. It will also be available in the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 release, whose development will start next month. After that, starting with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, the GNOME desktop will be used by default.

As said, when browsing from my android phone, sometimes pressing the "" keys, don't bring the previous or next story. Sometimes you even end up in an infinite loop. It happens each day or so. Pretty annoying if you like to read all the news, because it forces to go on the main site, find the next story, enter and start browsing again. Thanks for fixing

Submission + - Debian Founder Ian Murdock Has Died

Unknown Lamer writes: After a Twitter meltdown yesterday, it has been confirmed that Ian Murdock has died. From the Docker blog: "It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ian Murdock passed away on Monday night. This is a tragic loss for his family, for the Docker community, and the broader open source world; we all mourn his passing. ... Ian helped pioneer the notion of a truly open project and community, embracing open design and open contribution; in fact the formative document of the open source movement itself (the Open Source Definition) was originally a Debian position statement. It is a testament to Ian’s commitment to openness and community that there are now more than 1,000 people currently involved in Debian development."
