What’s in the show:

  • News:

The generic graphics library, GEGL – as used by The Gimp – has just had its first update and includes threading and loads of new filters. Version 2.6 of the GTK3-based desktop, Cinnamon, has been released. Apple is going to open source its Swift 2 programming language. A Spanish military plane has crashed and a deleted configuration file is a suspected cause. And there’s a new Ubuntu Phone, the Aquaris E5 HD, this time with a 5 inch screen.
