Participate in a Fedora test week for kernel 5.2. This kernel version was recently released with several security fixes and will be coming soon to Fedora. The test week runs from now through July 29. See the wiki page for links to the test images and more details on how to test.

coreboot 4.10 has been released This release comes eight months following the 4.9 release, and includes 2538 commit changes from 198 authors. From the announcement: "Most of the changes were to mainboards, and on the chipset side, lots of activity concentrated on x86. However compared to previous releases activity (and therefore interest, probably) increased in vboot and in non-x86 architectures. However it's harder this time to give this release a single topic like the last: This release accumulates some of everything."

GNU Parallel 20190722 ("Ryugu") has been released. You can download the shell tool for executing jobs in parallel here, and go here to read more about GNU Parallel.
