vissha posted a topic in Mobile NewsLineage OS Announces A Bunch Of Newly Supported Devices For Its Preview Builds Last month, Cyanogen announced that it was shutting down its offices, leaving the future of CyanogenMod in question. However, from the company's digital ashes rose a new project called Lineage OS. The developer team behind the operating system announced that it would support more than 80 devices. However, at launch, it only supported a handful of devices. Now, the company has updated its roster of supported devices, adding a number of older handsets to the list. Previously, the developer team had only included the LG Nexus 5X, Huawei Nexus 6P, Motorola Moto G4 / G4 Plus, Nextbit Robin and Xiaomi Redmi 1S. The company has now updated its list of supported devices to include: Asus Nexus 7 2013 (4G / Wi-Fi) LG Nexus 5 Huawei Honor 5X LG G4 (T-Mobile / International) LG G3 S LG G3 Beat Motorola Moto X Pure (2015) Motorola Moto E Motorola Moto G Motorola Moto G4 Play OnePlus One Oppo Find 7a Oppo Find 7s Samsung Samsung Galaxy S III (AT&T / Sprint / T-Mobile / Verizon / International) Samsung Galaxy S II (International) Sony Xperia SP Xiaomi Mi 3w and Mi 4 Xiaomi Mi 5 Xiaomi Mi Max Xiaomi Redmi 3/Prime Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 As can be seen, the list of devices has increased drastically. That said, the developer team has not announced how many installs its operating system has garnered. Previously, the company had announced that experimental builds of Lineage OS had been downloaded more than 50,000 times. This figure is bound to change with more devices being supported everyday.

Batu69 posted a topic in Software NewsIncludes Ubuntu 16.04, 14.04, and 12.04 LTS Chris Coulson from Canonical published two security advisories to inform the Ubuntu Linux community about the availability of the latest Mozilla products in all supported releases. Mozilla announced the other day that its popular Firefox web browser, which is being used in the majority of GNU/Linux distributions by default, has hit a new milestone, version 49.0, bringing various new features, such as updated Firefox Login Manager and Reader Mode or better video performance on SSSE3 systems without hardware acceleration. Mozilla Firefox 49.0 also ships with updated HTML5 video and audio technologies that let users play files at 1.25x speeds or loop them. To track font memory usage, Firefox 49.0 contains new improvements to the about:memory reports, and it looks like there's now better font shaping thanks to the re-implementation of the Graphite2 rendering engine by default. On the other hand, Mozilla Thunderbird 45.3.0 ships with several bug fixes for various issues discovered recently, such as the inability to use Disposition-Notification-To in mail.compose.other.header, corruption of the drafts summary database due to certain messages, or the composing identity problems with "edit as new message" on a received email. Ubuntu users can install Firefox 49.0 and Thunderbird 45.3 now Therefore, if you're using any of the officially supported Ubuntu releases or flavors, such as Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, or Ubuntu GNOME, you can now update your installation to get the recently released Mozilla Firefox 49.0 web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird 45.3.0 email and news client. They are available for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin). To update, simply open the Ubuntu Software or Synaptic Package Manager apps, check for recent updates and install them. You can also open a terminal emulator and run the "sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade" command. Please keep in mind that you'll need to restart your Firefox and Thunderbird session after installing the new software versions. Good luck! Article source
Reefa posted a topic in Software NewsAs with Windows 8, so it will be with Windows 10, at least when it comes to builds of Microsoft’s operating system that lean on Bing to monetize. Bing is best known as Microsoft’s search engine, but it is also the company’s larger search layer that it applies against its own applications. A leaked Intel slide purporting to show a product roadmap includes a mention of “Win 10 W/Bing.” Unless the company is deliberately trying to be irksome, that’s a decent confirmation that the “with Bing” program will persist. I’ve asked Microsoft for comment on the matter, and have pinged Intel concerning the veracity of the slides in question. Windows 8.1 with Bing, confirmed last March, costs either very little or nothing to PC manufacturers. The code is designed for smaller tablets and devices that sell at lower price points. Why sell Windows for free? If Microsoft applied the regular cost of Windows to small computers, they would be completely uncompetitive in the market. So if Microsoft wants market share among smaller form-factor hardware, it had to release something else, e.g. a Windows build aimed to monetize using services instead of up-front fees. I don’t think that many saw Windows 8.1 with Bing as a full preamble of Microsoft’s Windows 10 strategy, but here we are. Microsoft plans to offer free upgrades to Windows 10 to many current Windows users. Given that, why continue the “with Bing” plan? The free upgrades to Windows 10 will cease after a certain Window, and Microsoft will want to still offer a cheap way for new users to pick up Windows 10. In that context, the “with Bing” build seems reasonable. techcrunch.com
