The Lubuntu team is running a bug day on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. It’s a spin of a hug day.
We will have an Ubuntu On Air session on Monday, July 25, 2016 from 19 to 20 UTC. I will give a presentation for the first half, then for the second half, I will be joined by Walter Lapchynski and we will answer questions provided to us over IRC. I strongly recommend that you either attend the session or watch the archive, because we might answer a question that you have. To attend, go to ubuntuonair.com during the date/time I listed above.
First of all, we need to apologise for being offline for several days, due to server problems. Now everything’s solved and working fine. The download links have been repaired, the usual sections are still there and, of course, the blog and comment ability is restored.
Again, sorry for the annoyance and… Happy downloading!
The Ubuntu Linux kernel team has announced that the Linux kernel in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS has been upgraded to version 4.4, the latest stable release made available.
Linus Torvalds released a new stable version of the Linux kernel just a few days ago, and the Ubuntu developers have been quick to integrate it into the latest build of Ubuntu 16.04.
The team has been tracking the 4.4 branch for quite some time, and they had almost all of the RC versions, so it was only natural to get the stable 4.4 as soon as it made an appearance.
Ian Murdock was perhaps best known professionally as the founder of the Debian project, which he created while still a student at Purdue University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in computer science in 1996.
Debian was one of the first Linux distros to be forged, and it is widely regarded as a one of the most successful open-source projects ever launched (via Docker).
Our distro, Lubuntu, is based on your dream. Thank you, Ian.
