Cliff’s List Filter – Sept 20 – 26

Greetings and salutations. We here at hope your work week has passed by as quickly and as graciously as possible, and have good news for you: it’s Thursday, the week is almost over, and its time for more updates from the mailing lists and newsgroups. In this episode: see the first steps of a feature implementation in the Linux kernel; latency fixes take a tentative step towards mainline eligibility; ipchains and ipfwadm support are on borrowed time; the release of Evolution 2.0.0; a cute animation featuring Konqui, the KDE mascot; is KNoda, on its way to becoming a suitable replacement for Access; loads of tips for Mozilla and Firefox; and the usual assortment of helpful riff-raff. Enjoy!
