    Devs of new filesystem try for Linux kernel again • The Register

    The lead developer of the bcachefs filesystem is gunning to get it accepted into the Linux kernel… again. The story of bcachefs is quite long-running, and this isn’t the first time – nor even the first time this year the project has attempted this. The filesystem has been around for a while; The Reg first […]

    Linux Mint Debian Edition 5 is here • The Register

    The Linux Mint project has announced version 5 of its Debian edition, code-named Elsie. Linux Mint is one of the longest-running and most polished distros downstream of Ubuntu, and really took off after Ubuntu switched to the controversial Unity desktop with 11.04. Around that time, Mint 12 retained a Windows-like look and feel that later […]

    New Linux kernel has improved random-number generation • The Register

    A significant rewrite of the Linux kernel’s random-number generator is underway, ensuring Linux-based cryptography is a bit more secure, particularly in virtual machines, and some software a bit smoother to run. The newly released kernel 5.17 contains the first stage of the big rewrite, but more will follow in 5.18. Among other changes, the /dev/random […]
