WhatsApp Encryption is Useless, Researchers Claim http://wccftech.com/does-ss7-render-whatsapp-encryption-pointless

"SMS authentication is one of the major security mechanisms for services like WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram, Facebook, and is also part of second factor authentication for Google accounts, etc. Devices and applications send SMS messages via the SS7 network to verify identity, and an attacker can easily intercept these and assume identity of the legitimate user. Having done so, the attacker can read and write messages as if they are the intended recipient".
Who needs to break encryption when FBI and hackers can simply use SS7 exploits to impersonate users and get access to user accounts.

Here's Timo's explanation of what's actually going on with AMD in 16.04 LTS.

AMD asked Ubuntu to migrate to the open driver stack since they would not support fglrx on 16.04 LTS.  AMD will release their hybrid stack with Pro-graphics support later this year and we need to be ready to support it.
In case someone hasn’t noticed yet, fglrx has been removed from Xenial. There are a couple of reasons for this. First of all, the driver did not support XServer 1.18 which we wanted to get in…

"Mozilla announced its plans to do away with the thorn in our side that is Flash. Starting August 2016, with Firefox 48, Mozilla will block all Flash content deemed “not essential to the user experience.”"
Mozilla is hammering additional nails into Flash's coffin by removing all non-essential Flash with its next update, slated to drop in August.

Quick tip for budgie-desktop PPA users who maybe wondering where GNOME based apps display their AppMenu. There is a bug upstream with 10.2.4 of budgie-desktop that does not display the GNOME AppMenu for applications like Rhythmbox, Totem, Nautilus etc.…
