7 Awesome Changes to Nautilus in GNOME 43

Joey Sneddon reminds us that the GNOME 43 release is approaching, and in this post writes about the file manager included with GNOME: Nautilus. Providing us with pictures of the program, Joey highlights seven changes within. We are told we may see this in Ubuntu 22.10 in October, but GNOME 43 isn't due to be released until September 2022.

Ubuntu 22.04 and 20.04 LTS Users Receive New Kernel Updates, 8 Security Issues Fixed

Marius Nestor alerts us to Canonical publishing Linux kernel security updates for both Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS that fix numerous listed security vulnerabilities. We are provided the CVEs patched, who found the problem, and how it could be exploited (if left unpatched), with a reminder that "Canonical urges all users to update" their systems if using the 5.15 LTS kernel.

Check Out Ubuntu’s Slick New Promotional Video

Joey Sneddon tells us of the release of a new promotional video celebrating the release of Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. Joey describes the video as "pretty awesome!". Joey tells us the video "focuses less on the specific features and more on capabilities" and thus is a "fantastic appetiser". We are also told the video is created by Videohive; a free and open source software, with an embedded video link provided.
