  • Scrivano is a New App to Take Handwritten Notes on Linux - OMG! Ubuntu!

    If I asked you to name a handwritten note-taking app for Linux chases are you’d namecheck Xournal++. It’s arguably the best one out there as it’s open source, well featured, and a real best-in-class application.

    But there’s always room for more.

    Scrivano is a relatively new hand-written note taking app for Linux (and Windows) that could prove itself handy for anyone looking to jot down hand-written notes, draw simple charts and diagrams, mark-up images, and other similarly nimble tasks.

    The app features four different paper backgrounds: Plain, Lined, Grid, or Dotted. The space between the lines/dots/grid spaces are all configurable too, which is great if you want to get really detailed with sketches and notes.

  • Revocation Reason Codes for TLS Server Certificates - Mozilla Security Blog

    In our continued efforts to improve the security of the web PKI, we are taking a multi-pronged approach to tackling some long-existing problems with revocation of TLS server certificates. In addition to our ongoing CRLite work, we added new requirements to version 2.8 of Mozilla’s Root Store Policy that will enable Firefox to depend on revocation reason codes being used consistently, so they can be relied on when verifying the validity of certificates during TLS connections. We also added a new requirement that CA operators provide their full CRL URLs in the CCADB. This will enable Firefox to pre-load more complete certificate revocation data, eliminating dependency on the infrastructure of CAs during the certificate verification part of establishing TLS connections. The combination of these two new sets of requirements will further enable Firefox to enforce revocation checking of TLS server certificates, which makes TLS connections even more secure.

MX Linux has an old-school look and feel. Here's why it's so popular

MX Linux is currently listed as the most downloaded Linux distribution on Distrowatch. This might come as a surprise to a lot of people, especially given it ranks above Linux Mint, Pop!_OS, and Ubuntu. For those who've never heard of MX Linux, it's based on Debian's stable branch as a cooperative venture between antiX and what's left of the MEPIS Linux communities. With Xfce as its default desktop (you can also download spins with either the KDE Plasma or Fluxbox desktops), it's a user-friendly, fast operating system that is a great option for those new to Linux and even those with years of skill under their belt.
