Linux/FOSS news:

For those of you that use Ubuntu or any of its approved flavors, 15.04 has reached its End of Life on 4 February. The LTS release 16.04 is due out on 21 April. The alpha 2 releases for 16.04 which is Xenial Xerus including the Lubuntu, Mate, and Kylin versions was 29 January 2016.

Catfish 1.3.4 was released 31 January 2016. It can be downloaded from Launchpad. The latest stable release is still 1.2.2. Now you can download the latest stable release, the development release, and the daily release at You can install all three and easily switch between them.

There is now a Ubuntu flavors download page. Apparently, people couldn’t find their favorite flavor so Canonical has made it easy for them by creating a page where they can go to to find the version that they want to download. Ubuntu of course has its own site.
