Yup,everyone’s

least

favourite Skype app has been furnished with another batch of minor features that no one isparticularly clamouring for.

Skype for Linux Alpha 1.7 introduces:

Persistent zoom level Using backslash (\) doesn’t trigger Skype chat commands Whitespaces and linebreaks are no longer removed form pasted messages You can now send !! or {code} macros (but not XML snippets)

Who needs video calling or the ability to dial out, right?

If you already have Skype for Linux Alpha installed you will receive this update via the Ubuntu Update Manager.

If you don’t already have it, Skype for Linux Alpha is available to download and install alongside the native Qt Skype desktop app on Ubuntu, Mint, KDE Neonand other Linux distributions using this link:

Stacer 1.0.3

We featured Stacer, anall-in-one system optimiser app for Ubuntu , last week ― and the reception to it has been incredibly positive!

Since thatinitial article appeared the developer behind theapp has buffed, buf-fixeds and bumped the version number a couple of times.

The app now uses native window borders , received some visual polish, a new loading screen, and now integrates with gksudo. This means you’ll only be promptedto enter your sudo password when attempting to run a task that requires root privileges, and the password is handled in a more secure way.

Check out the latest release of Stacer for Ubuntu by downloading it from the link below.

I don’t quite know whyI have such a soft spot for Qt web-browser QupZilla , but it’s clear that I do.

Whatever the reason, I was pleased to hear that QupZilla 2.1.0 is available to download.

This is the second major release of the browser since itsswitch to QtWebEngine. The update patches some pesky bugs, polishes and improves performance, and brings back a few fan-favouritefeatures that were found in earlier versions of the app.

Among the change-log:

Spellcheck support Option todelete cookies on close Per-domain user agent settings Audio playing indicator in tab +option to mute Background activity indicator in pinned tabs Native scrollbars option Option to delete cache on close Improved HiDPI experience

You can download the source of QupZilla from the official website, or add the official QupZilla PPA.

If you’d rather not wait around on a PPA to be updated you can take the latest release for a spin on pretty much any Linux distro by using the App Image (linked below):

WINE 2.1

Wine 2.1 fixes 62 bugs and improves various features, including:

More Shader Model 5 instructions Direct2D rendering improvements Better MIME message handling HID bus service now running by default

Wine 2.1 is available to download assource , while binary packages will be made available through traditional channels as and when they’re ready.
