This week was a bit slow as we prepare to upgrade our computers to the soon-to-be-released Fedora Linux 40 and Ubuntu 24.04 LTS operating systems, which are expected next week. However, we got some cool news starting with the release of the Firefox 125 web browser and LXQt 2.0 desktop environment, and continuing with the Volla Tablet running Ubuntu Touch and Firefox Nightly binaries for ARM64 Linux systems.

KDE Plasma 6 users have received a new point release with more bug fixes. Alongside this, VirtualBox has released an update with support for Linux 6.8 and 6.9 kernels. Clonezilla Live has also rolled out a new release, which has been patched against the recent XZ backdoor. You can learn more about this week’s biggest news and access all the distro and package downloads that were released during this past week by following 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for April 21st, 2024.
