Ars technica covers
the release
of Android 9 “Pie”. “Android Pie is a major update for Android. Large chunks of the OS get a UI makeover in line with Google’s updated Material Design guidelines. There is an all-new notification panel, a reworked recent-apps screen, new settings, and tons of system UI changes. There’s support for devices with notched displays (like the iPhone X) and a gesture navigation system (also like the iPhone X). So far, battery life on the preview builds has been great, with improvements like the AI-powered adaptive battery system, a new auto-brightness algorithm, and changes to CPU background processing.

Stable kernel updates

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/760062/rss

Stable kernels 4.17.7, 4.14.56, 4.9.113, and 4.4.141 have been released. The 4.17.7 kernel is broken for i386 systems. “I did this release anyway with this known problem as there is a fix in here for x86-64 systems that was nasty to track down and was affecting people. Given that the huge majority of systems are NOT i386, I felt this was a safe release to do at this point in time.” Beyond that, these kernels all contain the usual set of important fixes.
