The Document Foundation announced today that the LibreOffice 6.1 office suite series got its sixth and last point release as version 6.1.6, which is now available to download for all supported platforms.

Microsoft Brings a Full Linux Kernel to Windows 10

Microsoft announced at the Build developer conference this week that it’s working on a custom Linux kernel that would be integrated into Windows 10 as part of the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, or WSL 2.

The Redmond-based software giant says its decision to ship a real Linux kernel with Windows comes as a result of all its efforts to improve the performance of WSL and make full system call compatibility possible.

“This isn’t the first time Microsoft has shipped a Linux kernel, as we have already shipped one in 2018 when we announced Azure Sphere. However, this will be the first time a Linux kernel is shipped with Windows, which is a true testament to how much Microsoft loves Linux!” Microsoft explains.

Microsoft Announces Windows Subsystem for Linux 2

Microsoft has announced the second version of Windows Subsystem for Linux, the company’s own platform that lets users run Linux on top of Windows 10.

Simply called Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, or WSL 2, this new version comes with substantial file system performance increases and full system call compatibility.

In a blog post detailing the tweaks the company has given to WSL with this new release, Microsoft explains that WSL 2 is mostly based on feedback, addressing top requests like more apps working inside of WSL.

“WSL 2 is a new version of the architecture that powers the Windows Subsystem for Linux to run ELF64 Linux binaries on Windows. This new architecture changes how these Linux binaries interact with Windows and your computer’s hardware, but still provides the same user experience as in WSL 1 (the current widely available version),” Microsoft explains.

Users will be able to run … (read more)
