The ninety-six installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on July 31st, 2022, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things happening in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup, catch up with things here.

Thank you!

Thank you, everyone, for your support this week by sharing, liking, and retweeting my articles, for your comments, suggestions, and tips. I am only here because you guys support me and I will never take that for granted, so thank you for all your support so far!

Someone emailed me this week that the dark theme I am using for the website is flashing white every time a page loads, suggesting a fix. I was quick to implement the fix and want to publicly thank this person for helping me improve the website’s design, so thank you whoever you are!

This week we had a bunch of exciting news, starting with the launch of the final Linux Mint 21 release and the Firefox 103 web browser, and continuing with System76’s latest Pop!_OS Linux 22.04 distribution for Raspberry Pi 4 devices and a new Steam Client update with more improvements for Linux gamers.

On top of that, we talked about some of the upcoming changes in the Endless OS distribution, a new Linux kernel security update for Debian GNU/Linux 11 users, and I prepared another roundup of updates for Xfce users.
