First up in the news, we have some Gnome news, some new Intel on Linux 5.19, the kernel gets even more Rusty, Ubuntu loses its Pulse, and Proton unifies.
In security and privacy: Facebook has no clue where your data goes. LinuxFX dumps user data… where? Mozilla fixes a serious vulnerability.
Then in our Wanderings: Joe starts making videos, Moss’ wife starts Cruzeing, and Norbert starts his new laptop.
In our Innards section, we get some thoughts on Ubuntu 22.04.
And finally, the feedback and a couple of suggestions
- Ubuntu 22.10 to switch to PipeWire by default and drop PulseAudio
- Updates on Gnome development and new Gnome Circle apps
- Linux 5.19 Will Be Super Exciting For Intel Customers
- Rust For The Linux Kernel Updated, Uutils As Rust Version Of Coreutils Updated
- ProtonMail is now just ‘Proton’, offering a privacy ecosystem
