New features in Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon.
New Panel Layout: As you go through the “First Steps” section of the Linux Mint 19.1 welcome screen, you’ll be asked to choose your favourite desktop layout. Cinnamon 4.0 ships with a brand new panel layout and thus with a new workflow. With a click of a button you’ll be able to switch back and forth between old and new and choose whichever default look pleases you the most. The new panel ships with a window list with app grouping and window preview. The panel looks more modern but it’s also much more configurable than before.
You can define a different icon size for each of the three panel zones. Each panel zone can now have a crisp icon size. The size of symbolic icons can also be adjusted to make your panel look exactly the way you want.
By default Cinnamon features a dark large panel, where icons look crisp everywhere and where they scale in the left and center zones. This new look, along with the new workflow defined by the grouped window list, make Cinnamon feel much more modern than before and if you preferred the way it was before the old look and its traditional workflow are still there just a click away.
Nemo: Nemo is three times faster than before. Its code was reviewed and optimized and the result is impressive. The file manager is lightning fast, it feels extremely light and browsing directories is a breeze. It’s never been that fast before and it’s immediately noticeable. Desktop settings were revamped. On supported file systems Nemo is now able to show file creation times. You can configure Nemo to show thumbnails depending on the directory you are browsing. Nemo python and all Nemo python extensions were ported to Python 3.
Other Improvements: Input lag was reduced on NVIDIA cards and the window manager feels more responsive when moving windows. You now also have the possibility to turn off VSYNC in the System Settings. This basically delegates VSYNC to your GPU driver and if that driver performs well it can eliminate input lag and boost performance.
A huge number of upstream changes were ported from the GNOME project.
Similar to Mutter, Muffin now uses its own embedded version of COGL and Clutter, which received most of the patches applied to the one in GNOME.
Many Mutter performance improvements were applied to Muffin.
CJS received many commits from GNOME’s GJS, including improvements to its garbage collection.
Cinnamon 4.0 rarely ventures past 250MB RAM on NVIDIA, it feels more responsive than 3.8 and some of the long standing rendering issues are a thing of the past.
The inhibit applet shows inhibitors.
You can choose which calculator application should be the default, in “Preferred Applications”.
Support for XScreensaver hacks and webkit themes have been removed from the Cinnamon screensaver.
Applets and desklets can now define custom widgets to use in their settings dialog.
Update Manager: The Update Manager is able to list mainline kernels and to show their support status. A new button was added to make it easier to remove unused kernels.
Software Sources: The Software Sources tool was given a new makeover. Similar to the welcome screen, it’s now using a Xapp sidebar and a headerbar. When software crashes tools such as mintreport produce a stack trace our developers can look at to understand the cause of the crash. This is the first step towards fixing such a bug. For the stack trace to be meaningful users need to have debug symbols installed. In an effort to reduce bandwidth for their mirrors Debian decided to move debug symbols outside of the main repositories. This decision affected not only Debian and LMDE but also Ubuntu and Linux Mint and made it much more difficult for users to install these symbols. To simplify this process support for debug symbols was added into the Software Sources tool. Adding debug symbol repositories can now be done with a click of the mouse.
A new button was also added within the “Maintenance” tab to remove duplicate entries in your repositories.
Input Methods: The Language Settings and the Input Methods are now two separate applications. The user interface for the Input Methods tool was revamped. It uses an icon sidebar and now shows a dedicated page for each supported language. Clear instructions are provided for each language to guide you through not only installing support packages but also selecting the right input method framework and the right input method.
Cinnamon 4.0 also received better Fcitx support. Its keyboard applet now hides when Fcitx is running.
Xreader: Improvements were made to the look and feel of the document viewer. Thumbnails and page borders in particular look crisper.
Xed: The text editor, moved to libpeas, python3 and the MESON build system. Its status bar was reworked. It now indicates whether the document is in tabs or spaces mode and highlight modes are searchable.
LibXApp: Four new widgets are available in libxapp.
1. XAppStackSidebar makes it easy to create icon sidebars. Such as the ones used in the Welcome Screen or the Software Sources.
2. XAppPreferencesWindow provides a multi-page preference window with a built-in icon sidebar. This component is used to display application preferences in Xed, Xreader and Nemo.
3. XAppIconChooserDialog provides a dialog which lets you choose an icon name or an icon path.
4. XAppIconChooserButton provides a button which shows an icon or an image, and lets you choose a new one when clicked.
Other Improvements: Firewall configuration was added to the “First Steps” section of the welcome screen to prevent you from typing your password into the wrong window and sending it online by mistake. Sudo now shows asterisks when you type your password.
This release ships with linux-firmware 1.173.2 and the Linux kernel 4.15.0-20.
Artwork Improvements: Linux Mint 19.1 features a superb collection of backgrounds. Mint-Y themes were given more contrast. The icons now look darker than before. It is easier to visually identify the focused window.
Components: Linux Mint 19.1 features Cinnamon 4.0, a Linux kernel 4.15 and an Ubuntu 18.04 package base.
Strategy: Linux Mint 19.1 will receive security updates until 2023. Until 2020 future versions of Linux Mint will use the same package base as Linux Mint 19.1 making it trivial for people to upgrade. Until 2020 the development team won’t start working on a new base and will be fully focused on this one.

About Kogan
Kogan is an Australian portfolio of retail and services businesses including Kogan Retail, Kogan Marketplace, Kogan Mobile, Kogan Internet, Kogan Insurance, Kogan Health, Kogan Pet Insurance, Kogan Life Insurance and Kogan Travel. The company was founded in 2006 by Ruslan Kogan. The Wall Street Journal speculates Kogan is worth over $400M.
Kogan.com was established in 2006 by Ruslan Kogan in his parent’s garage. He started with a website offering LCD televisions that would be assembled in Chinese factories. In October 2010, Ruslan Kogan announced that Kogan would expand to the UK. The company officially entered the UK market on 15 November with a range of LED TVs and GPS units. The expansion makes Kogan the only Australian-owned international consumer electronics brand. On 7 July 2016 Kogan floated on the Australian Stock Exchange. Kogan Mobile was re-launched on 19 October 2015 with unlimited standard national calls and text and heaps of data in Australia at great prices. The service is powered by Vodafone over the Vodafone 2G and 3G networks. All customers of Kogan Mobile were upgraded to 4G in early 2016. Kogan is using the Vodafone network, and Vodafone is handling all customer service.
In August 2011 Kogan announced his desire for online retailers to be viewed separately from traditional retail by economists, stating that “If we have been grouped with traditional retailers, then we want a divorce” and arguing that all of the innovation and growth is in online, rather than bricks-and-mortar, retail. Business Magazine BRW noted the similarity of the “divorce” to a campaign by NAB. In March 2016, Kogan acquired Dick Smith Holdings online business. The physical retail stores have been shut down with the Dick Smith brand transitioned to an online-only consumer electronics store.

Founded in 2013 Honor line of cost-effective smartphones allows Huawei to compete with mid-range online smartphone brands in China and global Market. Honor began its international expansion in April 2014 with launching the Honor 3C in Malaysia, followed by the release of the Honor 6 in Europe in October. By June 2015 the brand had expanded into 74 countries, including in Europe, India, and Japan. The Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max were released in September 2018 in China. That same month, The Honor Play was named “Best of IFA 2018” by Top Tier Global Media, praising the device for its GPU Turbo and smart gaming features.

BBM

bbm

BlackBerry Messenger
BlackBerry Messenger is a proprietary mobile instant messenger and video communication application included on BlackBerry devices that allows messaging and voice calls between BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile users.
BlackBerry Messenger was launched on August 1, 2005 by BlackBerry Limited.

The consumer edition for iOS and Android or BBM Consumer was developed by Indonesian company Emtek (formerly known as Research In Motion) under license from BlackBerry Limited. Messages sent via BBM are sent over the Internet and use the BlackBerry PIN system. In the past many service providers allowed sign-in to BBM using a dedicated BlackBerry data plan. BBM also allows users to send pictures, audio recordings, files, share real time location on a map, stickers and a wide selection of emojis. With the release of BlackBerry Messenger 5.0, BlackBerry allows users to use a QR Code to add each other to their respective friend’s lists rather than using only numeric PIN identification or an email address associated with the user’s BBM. The release of BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 introduced additional traits. This update is focused on social communication mediums including ‘BBM Connected Apps’ which allow the user to invite friends to share their favourite BlackBerry Applications. With the release of BlackBerry Messenger 7.0 in December 2012, voice chat or BBM Voice Call was introduced.

Communication was only possible between BlackBerry devices until late 2013 when BBM was released on iOS and Android systems. 300 million Stickers have been shared. Daily 150,000 BBM Voice Calls are placed. There are more than 190 million BBM users worldwide as of 2015. BBM was the original “mobile-first” messaging service and highly popular until it started to lose out to rivals. On November 4, 2014, BBM scored 1 out of 7 points on the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s “Secure Messaging Scorecard”. It lost points because communications are not encrypted with a key the provider doesn’t have access, users can’t verify contacts’ identities, past messages are not secure if the encryption keys are stolen, the code is not open to independent review, the security design is not properly documented, and there has not been a recent independent code audit.
As of April 2016, Indonesia was the only country where BBM was the most popular messaging app installed on 87.5% of Android devices in the country.

The consumer version of BBM is officially discontinued at the end of May 2019. Emtek has announced that it will end support for the messaging app on May 31st 2019.
Saying “We are proud of what we have built to date… The technology industry however is very fluid and in spite of our substantial efforts users have moved on to other platforms. While new users proved difficult to sign on,” since users has moved on Emtek wrote in a blog, “Though we are sad to say goodbye, the time has come to sunset the BBM consumer service, and for us to move on.”

Those using the enterprise version of the app called BBM Enterprise or BBMe will continue operations as normal but there is a $2.50 subscription fee for every six months. BBMe does offer end-to-end encryption and message editing / unsending where the consumer version didn’t. So it may be worth the dollars if you’re still a BBM user.
BBM Enterprise (formerly known as BBM Protected) was developed fully by BlackBerry Limited.

You can download the enterprise version on Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS, BlackBerryOS for free.

Huawei Ark OS

huawei ark os

 

Huawei had confirmed quite recently that it is working on its own operating system as an alternative to Android and thanks to several trademarks that Huawei submitted we may know the name of that operating system.
The company has trademarked three names with EUIPO that includes HUAWEI ARK OS, HUAWEI ARK, ARK, and ARK OS. All of these trademarks were filed on May 24, so not so many days ago.
These trademarks do not confirm that this is Huawei’s upcoming alternative to Android but considering that the company confirmed that it is working on that OS and that its development had to be accelerated due to recent US and Google-related issues. Chances are that the OS will be called “Ark OS”.
Huawei actually confirmed way back in November that it is developing an Android alternative though back then the news was not as important as it is now. If you have not been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks you know that the US basically banned Huawei from doing business with US companies. Which prompted Google to cut ties with the company as well.
When the company said it developed its own operating system in case of any circumstances that it can face from the US. The possible name was ( a Chinese name, which could be different for the global users ) Huawei OS – “Hongmeng“.
Following all that, a number of other companies cancelled on Huawei. Creating a huge issue for one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. Based on the latest numbers Huawei is the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world after Samsung and the company was aiming to trump Samsung next year but this prohibition will affect those plans quite a bit.
According to recent reports Huawei’s sales dropped following recent US-related issues. Huawei’s smart phones are based on Android, and even though Huawei was granted a three-month grace period to keep its license. That won’t mean much for the company if it doesn’t manage to turn things around.
Huawei’s CEO said that the company is ready for the change and ensured its users that everything will be okay but there are a ton of obstacles for the company if the situation doesn’t get ironed out. Switching to a completely new OS is one thing but Huawei is now having issues on the hardware side as well.
Many of its components either come from US companies or are provided by companies that have direct ties to those US companies. As various patents are into play which may render Huawei illegible to use those parts. Its Kirin chips may be affected by the whole situation as well.
Now, this may be only a political maneuver initialized by the US President Donald Trump. As he did say recently that Huawei may be included in the US-China trade deal. If that ends up happening all of Huawei’s issues may be resolved but the longer this period lasts the more damage will be done to the company. It would be a real hit for the tech community to see Huawei fall down the ladder. As it would have a considerable impact on competition and basically leave the vast majority of the market for Samsung and Apple to control.
Huawei’s first-ever self-developed operating system will soon be launched this fall.
As a Chinese tech giant Huawei will find its way around this. We all just hope that Huawei’s OS will be stable and will come with wide range of app support and doesn’t end up like Fire phone, Windows phone or other OS that came in the market but couldn’t fill the market demands. These days new OS just come and go, Time will tell if Huawei can make a permanent mark.

The New MacOS Catalina

mac os catalina

macOS Catalina or macOS 10.15 is the newest version of the operating system that will run on the Mac from this fall 2019. macOS Catalina’s name was inspired by the Catalina Islands that is off the coast of Southern California.

In macOS Catalina Apple has taken away the iTunes app that’s been a staple to the Mac operating system since 2001. iTunes has been split into three apps: Music, Podcasts, and TV (coming this fall 2019). The new apps are similar in function to iTunes now but are split up by feature. You can still manage your devices in Catalina, but it’s now done through the Finder rather than through an app. Syncing media can be done using the Apple TV, Podcasts, or Music apps.

In the Music app there’s full access to the music library just like in iTunes. Regardless of whether the songs were purchased or ripped from a CD. The iTunes Music Store is included in the Music app, and you can access Apple Music content too.
The Apple TV app is similar to the Apple TV app on the Apple TV and iOS devices, offering up access to TV and movie content for the first time. The new TV app will support 4K HDR content on 2018 and later Macs.
In the new Podcasts app users can access their Podcasts library, which was previously housed in iTunes. There are features for browsing, viewing top charts, and managing your library, plus new editor-curated categories. Podcasts is a simple app but useful for those who listen to a lot of podcasts.
Your 32-bit apps are no longer going to work in macOS Catalina. You’ll get a warning when you install the update. macOS Catalina supports 64-bit apps only, and that means that some of your older apps that haven’t been updated for a while won’t run at all. The Dashboard feature which has long been disabled by default has been officially removed in Catalina.
A new Sidecar feature available in System Preferences lets you turn your ipad into a display for your Mac with just the click of a button. Apple Pencil support works with the ipad with Sidecar, so you can turn your ipad into a drawing tablet in apps like Photoshop. You can extend your display or mirror it so both screens display the same content.
macOS Catalina ramps up the security in macOS, and Gatekeeper. Apple’s security protocol checks all your apps for known security issues. New data protections also require apps to get your permission before accessing your documents.

For those with an Apple Watch set up to unlock the Mac, there’s now an option to approve security prompts by tapping on the side button of the watch. Macs with a T2 chip in them support Activation Lock for the first time, making them useless to thieves much as it does on the iPhone.
A new Find My app is also available in iPadOS and iOS 13 brings the Find My Mac and Find My Friends technology to a Mac app for the first time and it has a feature that lets you track your devices even when they’re offline. This option leverages Bluetooth and the devices of other people who might be around your lost or stolen device, relaying its location securely and anonymously back to you.
Screen Time has expanded to the Mac in macOS Catalina so now you can track your device usage across your all device. Not just iPhone and iPad, for a better picture of how you’re spending your time.
Project Catalyst, known internally at Apple as Project Marzipan, will let developers port their iPad apps over to the Mac with just a few clicks in Xcode and minor tweaks, which will ultimately result in a much greater number of macOS apps available.
There’s a new Photos interface that organizes your pictures by day, month, or year, while also intelligently choosing your best photos so you can relive all of your favourite memories.
In Safari, there’s a new start page that uses Siri Suggestions to display frequently visited sites, bookmarks, iCloud tabs, Reading List selections, and links you’ve been sent in Messages for a more personalized Safari start page.

Mail in macOS Catalina adds new features for blocking emails from specific senders, muting threads, and unsubscribing from commercial email lists. There’s a new Gallery View in notes, along with new view-only collaboration options and folder sharing.

As on iOS, the Reminders app has been overhauled with introducing a new user interface, smart lists, attachment support, and Messages integration to make it easier to create and organize your reminders.
Voice Control lets users who can’t use a Mac in the traditional way operate their machine using solely voice commands through Siri. This feature also works on iOS 13 and iPadOS.

The macOS Catalina beta is limited to developers at the current time, but it will be available to public beta testers starting in July. Apple plans to beta test the update for several months before releasing it to the public this fall 2019.
