While Pidgin and Empathy are affected you will still be able to chat using the website.
Facebook Chat will not work in Empathy, Pidgin or other instant messenger apps from April 30, as Facebook Chat API deprecation kicks in.

For what it's worth, the upgrade worked when I tried it again today. Somebody probably botched up a check-sum with the initial upgrade files on day 1...  Oh well.

Tomahawk 0.8.4 has been released!

Okay, so we actually published this article on the meta-streaming music player last week. As the pre-built packages for Ubuntu users weren't ready at the time, we held off on sharing.

That is all now sorted, so what's say we pretend this is new news again? Awesome.
A new update to the meta-streaming desktop music player Tomahawk has washed ashore, with a bunch of bug fixes and Tidal support in tow.

Plasma is still super messy. And they are at 5.3 at that. Any upgrade from 4.x is going to have problems sooner than later.

Chrome for Windows XP To Be Supported a Little Longer

Microsoft stopped providing security updates to #WindowsXP  back in April 2014 — yet millions are still using it. To help offer those folks some protection, Google will continue to support Chrome until the end of the year. 
Google has announced that it is extending its support period for Chrome on Windows XP until the end of the year, 8 months more than originally intended.

There's no reason to end it at all.

I've been switching all the elderly that come into my shop from XP to Linux. Most of them are in their lat 70s. It is a pretty good trade for them. Their computer continues to work and it gets a new lease on life.

+Ryan Hayle well, that's one way to view things. A bit narrow-minded, but a way nonetheless.

Canonical has added official Ubuntu 15.04 mascot t-shirts to its online store.

Price is okay (at least until you add postage) and would make a great gift for an ubuntu fan you know.

(Hint, Canonical. Hint).

Shipping (£11.70) is more expensive than the T-shirt (£11.00).

Correction: T-shirt is £13.20. Not £11.00 as the article seems to state.
Still too much for shipping.

If you had to use one of the following for an entire week, no exceptions, which would it be?

It's #PointlessPoll time. A new weekly (until we forget) and throughly useless time wasting exercise in which we ask you to pick one of four bone-idle options to a given question, none of which you'd want to pick normally. 

The only rule: you can't say "none of the above"

The results of the poll will leave a huge impression on the world have even less of an impact on the world than an online petition. Yes, it's that futile! 

You can suggest an utterly trivial time-wasting topic for next week's #PointlessPoll . Use the tip form on our website and use the subject line 'pointless poll'. Remember to include your Google+ name so we can give you a shout out if we use it!
