Linux kernel v5.1-rc6 was released yesterday. Linus Torvalds writes: "It's Easter Sunday here, but I don't let little things like random major religious holidays interrupt my kernel development workflow. The occasional scuba trip? Sure. But everybody sitting around eating traditional foods? No. You have to have priorities. There's only so much memma you can eat even if your wife had to make it from scratch because nobody eats that stuff in the US. Anyway, rc6 is actually larger than I would have liked, which made me go back and look at history, and for some reason that's not all that unusual. We recently had similar rc6 bumps in both 4.18 and 5.0. So I'm not going to worry about it."

Kdenlive 19.04 was released today. From the release announcement: "more than 60% of the code base was changed with +144,000 lines of code added and +74,000 lines of code removed. This is our biggest release ever bringing new features, improved stability, greater speed and last but not least maintainability (making it easier to fix bugs and add new features)." Go here to download.

KMyMoney version 5.0.4 is now available. This release of the open-source personal finance manager brings updated documentation and some long-standing bug fixes. See the Changelog for all the details. Try the Appimage build for the latest and greatest version from the stable branch.
