Linux This Month: Rocky Linux RC & Linux Kernel 5.12

Episode description

Gwyn brings you a bucket load of Linux news this month. Rocky Linux release candidate is now out, and it seems to be cementing itself as a worthy CentOS replacement. Linux Kernel 5.12 has been released, and although mainly small fixes, there’s a couple of things worth your time, such as an Intel GPU fix. Plasma Mobile has been updated, giving a fresh coat of paint to several mobile applications. Fedora 34 is out and brings a few new improvements, as does Firefox 88 and Ubuntu 21.04, while the Pop!_OS desktop experience, Cosmic, shows us a different view.
