News briefs for April 24, 2019.

Mozilla has released its 2019 Internet Health Report. This year's report focuses on three main issues: the need for better machine decision making, rethinking digital ads and the rise of smart cities. See the Mozilla blog for a summary.

Pop!_OS 19.04 is now available from System76. This release is updated to use version 5.0 of the Linux kernel and version 3.32 of GNOME. In addition, this version brings a new Dark Mode, Slim Mode and refreshed icon designs. Go here to download, or see the instructions on the System76 blog to upgrade from 18.04.

The Free Software Dictionary needs your help. The dictionary is "maintained by countless volunteers dedicated to the promotion of software that respects your personal liberty. As with any group composed of volunteers, the informal Directory team has people who come and go, and right now, it could really use some fresh new members to kick our efforts into high gear." See the FSF post for information on how you can contribute.

GNOME Builder 3.33.1 is out. Highlights include a DBus Inspector inspired by D-feet, some initial Podman support and Git integration has been moved out of process. Click here to download.

Rancher Labs today announced k3OS, the first Kubernetes operating system. k3OS is "an operating system completely managed by Kubernetes. It launches in seconds and runs almost anywhere. As a combined Linux and Kubernetes distribution it has the smallest attack surface and simplest upgrade process of any Kubernetes installation." Go here to download.
