Danielle Foré Has an Update for elementary OS 7

Elementary OS founder and CEO Danielle Foré has announced updates for version 6.1 and adds that the elementary OS team is now preparing for the upcoming 7.0 release. Although there's no hard release date for 7.0, they've announced a codename (Horus) and that the team is focusing on a swift release over adding a host of new features for the initial release. That means the evolution from 6.1 to 7.0 will be subtle.

Some of the features they are planning for 7.0 include automatic app updates and power profiles. Additionally, 7.0 will debut the minimalist Music app and the migration of some components migrating to Gtk4 (which should bring much-improved performance and smoother animations).

One thing 7.0 won't do is make the switch to Wayland. Although they are preparing for the shift, elementary OS isn't ready for the jump.

Linux New Media Launches Open SourceJobHub

Linux New Media, along with FOSSlife and Linux Magazine, is pleased to announce the launch of Open Source JobHub (, a job board to help people find their place in the open source ecosystem.

Aimed at developers, engineers, managers, marketers, and more, Open Source JobHub can help you find the perfect job fit. Now, more than ever, the open source tech industry is exploding, and Open Source JobHub will help you navigate the growing number of opportunities.

"Open Source JobHub not only covers jobs using open source technologies, but also other roles such as sales, marketing, and management at companies dedicated to open source. Our goal is to give the global open source community a specific platform through which to make career connections," said Brian Osborn, CEO and publisher, Linux New Media.

Open Source JobHub now features job listings from launch partners CloudLinux, Collabora, SUSE, and TUXEDO Computers. The site will also provide resources to help job seekers build their careers with open source, and employers can quickly upload listings and reach qualified candidates.

"At Collabora, our focus has always been to promote open source technologies, whether that be our own Engineers, who are some of the most motivated and active contributors to open source, or our non-technical staff covering multiple departments. Open Source JobHub will allow the further promotion of open source by increasing awareness within the industry," said Ben Toynton, Technical Recruiter at Collabora.

Employers can post five free job listings during the launch phase. Follow Open Source JobHub on Twitter @OSJobHub (

Ubuntu Cinnamon 22.04 Now Available

For those who prefer the Cinnamon desktop but would rather have all the fancy Ubuntu underpinnings (instead of going with Linux Mint), developer Joshua Peisach has announced the release of his Ubuntu remix, Ubuntu Cinnamon. This new version is based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and includes the Cinnamon 5.2 desktop. Cinnamon 5.2 adds improvements to the Menu applet (such as better keyboard navigation when using left to right languages). The Calendar applet now supports GNOME's Evolution Data Server for contacts, tasks, and calendar information.

Beyond what Cinnamon 5.2 brings to the table, Ubuntu Cinnamon 22.04 added fixes for background and screen tearing issues, Wayland set as the default when using non-NVIDIA graphics cards, updates for Active Directory (including full Group Policy support, privilege escalation, and remote script execution), and plenty of performance and reliability improvements.

Of this release, Peisach said, "This release has been two years in the making, and I am so grateful for everyone who helped – through quality assurance/testing, bug squashing, general development, and those across the different Ubuntu teams."

For more information about the release, check out Peisach's blog post ( and download a copy of the ISO to install on either bare metal or as a virtual image (
