Mozilla Announces Firefox Reality Browser for Mixed Reality, GnuCash 3.0 New Release and More

Mozilla announced
Firefox Reality today, “Bringing the Immersive Web to Mixed Reality Headsets”.
Firefox Reality is the only open source browser for mixed reality and the
first cross-platform browser for mixed reality. See The
Mozilla Blog
for more details.

GnuCash 3.0 was released yesterday, marking the first stable release in the
3.x series. This version has several new features, but the main update is the use of the Gtk+-3.0 Toolkit
and the WebKit2Gtk API. See the announcement
for a list of all the new features for both users and developers.

Kernel 4.17 will have 500,000 fewer lines of code, as maintainers have decided
to deprecate support for old CPU architectures. As written in the pull request on the LKML,
“This removes the entire architecture code for blackfin, cris, frv, m32r, metag,
mn10300, score, and tile, including the associated device drivers.”

Compete in the second annual Linux Game Jam! Submissions
will be accepted starting April 5th and the
deadline is April 14th. This year’s theme is “Versatile Verbs”. See the website for all the rules.

OpenSSH 7.7 was released
this morning. This version is primarily a bugfix release.

And in other new releases, the OpenBSD team announced new version 6.3
yesterday. This update features SMP support on arm64 and multiple security
improvements, including Meltdown/Spectre (variant 2) mitigations. See the release page
