[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/moving-to-zstandard-images-by-default-on-mkinitcpio/) Moving to Zstandard images by default on mkinitcpio
Feb 19th 2021, 14:37

As linux-lts moved to the 5.10 version, all official kernels of Arch Linux now support zstd compressed
initramfs images, so mkinitcpio is switching to zstd compressed images by default with version 30,
which is currently on [testing].
If, for any reason, you are using a kernel version prior to 5.9, make sure to change mkinitcpio.conf
COMPRESSION to use one of the compressors supported, like gzip, otherwise you will not be able to
boot images generated by mkinitcpio.

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Fourth generation of Sailfish OS is here!

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA

(https://blog.jolla.com/sailfish4/) Fourth generation of Sailfish OS is here!
Feb 16th 2021, 12:45

We've come a long way, since Sailfish OS was first introduced in 2013. Now as we enter the 4th generation with Sailfish OS, the secure platform for trusted mobile solutions, we can proudly say that our product is in great shape and ready to expand to new frontiers!  After Sailfish 3 was launched many big developments have happened that have have impacted Jolla, Sailfish OS, our partners with us, and all the daily Sailfish users.
To name a few:

We have delivered over 5,000 improvements and fixes to the OS since Sailfish 3. In particular, our emphasis has been on various security features to ease corporate level deployments but which are also beneficial for all privacy-caring users
The EU GDPR went into effect, and we're proud to have been 100 % compliant from day 1 (and even before that)
Full-scale Sailfish X ports were developed for Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia 10 together with the great Sailfish community
Our unique Android App Support for Linux platforms was updated to support Android 9 apps, and the support for Android 10 apps is already nicely on the way
A new (https://forum.sailfishos.org/) Sailfish Forum was created, and we've been happy to see many new members join the discussions in the much more lively forum – thanks for all the encouraging feedback!
Long-term collaboration with OMP deploying (https://auroraos.ru/) Aurora OS in Russia has delivered tons of open source contributions to the OS

On a high-level Sailfish 4 includes several security and functionality updates, the long-awaited browser update, redesigned daily usage flow of key applications, as well as a rebooted developer experience. In particular we're proud to boast full-scale OS-level Mobile Device Management (MDM) to enable easy and manageable end-to-end trusted corporate and governmental sector deployments.
The first Sailfish 4 software release, Koli, is today made available to all Sailfish users. You're welcome to read more details from the (https://blog.jolla.com/koli) Koli blog post, which our software engineer David Llewellyn-Jones has crafted.
To celebrate this milestone Sailfish 4 release, we've also just published a major update to the (https://sailfishos.org) Sailfish OS website to show better and more visually what this great alternative OS is all about – be sure to check out that as well!
Your Jolla captain,
Sami

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Sailfish OS Koli is now available

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA

(https://blog.jolla.com/koli/) Sailfish OS Koli is now available
Feb 16th 2021, 12:40

No doubt you'll already have read about the transition of (https://blog.jolla.com/sailfish4) Sailfish OS into its fourth generation. And that, of course, also means a new Sailfish OS release. We're very pleased to announce Sailfish OS 4.0.1 Koli, one of our biggest Sailfish releases for a long time. There are far too many improvements to cover all of them in detail here – you can check details from the (https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/release-notes-koli-4-0-1/4542) release notes. In line with our version 4 naming, we've chosen to look at four significant improvements below.
But before getting in to that, you'll of course want to know about Koli. The (https://www.nationalparks.fi/kolinp) Koli National Park is in the North Karelia region of Finland in the east, hugging the western shore of Lake Pielinen, which you can see in the update photo. It's not hard to see why the beautiful vistas provided inspiration for (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Sibelius) Jean Sibelius, composer of the Finnish national anthem. The photograph also shows the characteristic white quartzite on the Koli "vaara" (amongst the many words for "hill" in Finnish, "vaara" is the second smallest).
Browser update
In (https://blog.jolla.com/sailfish-os-pallas-yllastunturi-is-now-available/) Sailfish OS Pallas-Yllästunturi we brought you an important update to the browser, bringing the rendering engine to Gecko version ESR52. With Sailfish OS 4 Koli we've pushed further, bringing it up to version ESR60. This means improved performance and website compatibility, not just within the browser itself but everywhere the Gecko engine is used, including for third-party apps.
From a technical perspective, updating the browser engine to Firefox-based Gecko version ESR60 has been an important milestone because it introduces Rust programming language into the upstream Gecko codebase. Rust was already discussed in the Pallas-Yllästunturi release, but at that point it was experimental. Sailfish OS 4 Koli is the first release where we're actually taking Rust into use, meaning we can now get future browser updates rolled out more easily.
The browser isn't just the rendering engine of course, and you'll also notice improvements in browser features elsewhere too. We've beefed-up the privacy controls with site-specific permissions and tightened security when logging in to public wifi hotspots. Bookmark and history management have been extended, and you can now access the improved Settings from directly within the browser. You can also now save out pages to PDF for sharing and later offline reading.
Many of these changes were contributed by and developed in collaboration with our customer OMP, with all of the code being released as Open Source and available in our source code repositories. This is an important example of how our open source strategy benefits all users, customers and the community alike.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2021/02/Browser_Overview.png)

Firejail app permissions

There are many reasons to choose Sailfish OS over other mobile operating systems, but at Jolla we never forget that privacy and control are things our customers care deeply about. That's because we care deeply about them too, and that's why we've introduced Firejail app sandboxing into Sailfish OS 4 Koli.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2021/02/Firejail@2x_80.jpg) When you first run an application, the Firejail app sandbox will make clear which permissions an application needs in order to run. A Firejailed app is prevented from accessing any of the functionality not granted on the list. Why is that important? We know Jolla developers are trustworthy, but there's always the possibility someone will release an app containing rogue code, or with an accidental vulnerability for an attacker to exploit. If this happens, it's reassuring to know the app is confined to minimise any harm it can do.
Some users may be concerned that this increasing security and privacy may impact the control you have over your own device. Rest assured this is not the case. With developer mode activated you're still free to execute apps outside the sandbox if you prefer. In contrast to other mobile operating systems we want all Sailfish OS users to have full control of their devices, while ensuring malicious hackers don't.
In the latest release many of the Jolla apps are sandboxed by default, but we're not yet applying this to third party apps. Sandboxing prevents the use of boosters and QML pre-compilation, with a performance penalty we're working to avoid. Restricting its use initially to a selected set of apps will give us the chance to iron out some of these kinks before we activate it for third party apps in a future release.

Android App Support
Since the very first release of Sailfish OS, Android App Support has been an important part of our offering. In Sailfish OS 4 Koli we're reinforcing our commitment to seamless integration of Android apps with the broadest possible compatibility.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2021/02/Android-Apps2x.png) We're bumping Android App Support up to Android 9 "Pie" on the Xperia XA2 and 10, an improvement that's required many changes under the hood. For the end user it means even better compatibility with the latest Android apps and support for API level 28. Crucially it also allows better alignment with the underlying drivers, making it more stable and easier to maintain in the future.
Integration with the rest of the operating system has also been improved, and will continue to be as Sailfish 4 develops. Already you'll notice slicker integration with settings, notifications and the keyboard, and multiple bug fixes to make Android apps work even better on Sailfish OS.

A slicker, clearer, UX
The Sailfish 3 era saw improvements to the apps and user experience across multiple areas, including call experience, Events view, messages and more. With the jump to version 4 we're not reinventing the UI, but are continuing this trend of making significant improvements to functionality and usability.
We've made careful but impactful changes to the UI to increase legibility, all without undermining the beautiful Sailfish OS aesthetic. We've improved how notifications work, allowing the most common tasks – such as replying to an email – to be triggered directly from the notification. Images can now be embedded in notifications, and housekeeping has been given an overhaul with increased use of gestures for dismissing notifications either individually or in groups. The new functionality is available to third party developers, allowing deeper integration between apps and the operating system.
Contact management is another area where we've made big strides forwards. You'll already be aware of the useful UI changes in previous releases and now we've introduced the concept of separate address books for contact storage. This allows, for example, a clear separation between work and personal contacts; especially useful in a business context. Not only does this help with organisation, it also offers greater control over contact syncing between different accounts.
QR code scanning has been integrated directly into the camera app. Just turn it on in the camera settings and any code in view will be automatically identified. Amongst the many other features and bugfixes, you'll now see warnings about the use of premium rate numbers, slicker VPN configuration and improved calendar management. Community member Damien Caliste deserves a special mention for the astonishing number and quality of calendar improvements he's contributed.
We're proud of the fact that during development of Sailfish OS 4 Koli we fixed more bugs than in any of the version 3 releases preceding it. We're also proud of the amazing contributions from OMP and the Sailfish OS community, be it in the form of code, translations, bug reports ideas and support generally, that allow us to sail forwards even faster.
As we said at the start, Sailfish OS 4 Koli represents an important milestone for us, but it's as much about the future as it is about the present. The fourth generation of Sailfish OS will see more improvements to the acclaimed Sailfish OS user interface, better compatibility with websites and Android apps, improved, slicker functionality throughout, and an improved developer offering. We're looking forward to sharing the journey with our partners, customers and community.

[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX. Chromium losing Sync support in early March

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/chromium-losing-sync-support-in-early-march/) Chromium losing Sync support in early March
Feb 3rd 2021, 08:56

Google has (https://blog.chromium.org/2021/01/limiting-private-api-availability-in.html) announced that they are going to block everything but Chrome from accessing certain Google features (like Chrome sync) starting on March 15. This decision by Google is going to affect Arch's chromium package a bit earlier, on March 2, when Chromium 89 gets released.
We know for sure that data syncing will stop working (passwords, bookmarks, etc.). Other features such as geolocation or enhanced spell check might continue to function for a bit longer. Extensions integrating with Google Drive might misbehave and LibreOffice will lose access to documents stored there.
Other distros such as openSUSE and Fedora have already removed the soon-to-be-limited API keys from their Chromium 88 packages. Fedora's (https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2021-48866282e5) advisory provides a great deal of perspective on this and I also found this Hackaday (https://hackaday.com/2021/01/26/whats-the-deal-with-chromium-on-linux-google-at-odds-with-package-maintainers/) post to be quite informative.

[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX. PHP 8.0 and PHP 7 legacy packages are available

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/php-80-and-php-7-legacy-packages-are-available/) PHP 8.0 and PHP 7 legacy packages are available
Jan 28th 2021, 19:50

The php package has been updated to (https://www.php.net/releases/8.0/en.php) version 8.0. Please refer to
the upstream (https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.php) migration guide. As some applications are not
compatible with PHP 8 yet we provide a (https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/php7/) php7 package which can be
installed alongside version 8. Packages that depend on PHP reflect
this update and will require php7 if needed. You might need to update
your configuration accordingly. PHP 7 binaries and configuration have
the "7" suffix:

/usr/bin/php -> /usr/bin/php7
/etc/php -> /etc/php7
/usr/bin/php-fpm -> /usr/bin/php-fpm7
/usr/lib/systemd/system/php-fpm.service -> /usr/lib/systemd/system/php-fpm7.service
/run/php-fpm -> /run/php-fpm7

We also provide third party modules compiled for PHP 7:

(https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/php7-apcu/) php7-apcu
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-geoip/) php7-geoip
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-grpc/) php7-grpc
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-igbinary/) php7-igbinary
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-imagick/) php7-imagick
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-memcache/) php7-memcache
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-memcached/) php7-memcached
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-mongodb/) php7-mongodb
(https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/php7-redis/) php7-redis

Note that support for php7 will be (https://www.php.net/supported-versions.php) limited and likely be dropped in
about a year depending on how soon the majority of applications
will be compatible with version 8.
