Following similar decisions by Mozilla and Apple, Google plans to reject new certificates issued by two certificate authorities because they violated industry rules and best practices.

If I wanted to, could I manually configure my system's kernel and package it for myself? Not that I'll likely do that, rather just curious

So anyone here play Star Trek Online? I think Chris said he did a few weeks back, but knowing my memory, that may not be true. Reason I ask is I'd like to create a fleet of Linux users. (in that game, guilds are called fleets)

It's really buggy under Ubuntu 16.04.1 I've seen it has better support under Arch.

Yes Chris plays... He had an entire podcast devoted to it (STOked) which ended after a few years. I would recommend it, however, despite it being a great show, the game dynamics have changed so much since it ended...very little if any of it is still relevant.

For those asking if Freya can be upgraded to Loki when Loki is released, I wouldn't count on it being done with anything short of a clean install.

Ubuntu's upgrade manage will at best not work and at worst break the entire system since it disables ALL ppas (including the needed ones.

The take home message is don't count on not having to do a clean install of Loki.

from what I've been reading in the feature plans for Ubuntu gnome 16.04 and Ubuntu Gnome 16.04, sounds like gnome 3.18 will be (for the most part) included, am I too far off on that? 

Also, is it ever too early to get bug reports (and patches where possible) in in a development cycle? Been testing various releases and flavors in in betas at the earliest since around 10.10, but never actually had that second question answered before.

+Max Wachtel its a gnome-software feature, but shouldnt end up being a problem if ubuntu stick with software updater. However updating some of the core GNOME components (like gdm) during a running session is becoming problematic, and can cause problems like broken lock screen authentication etc.

So, is it still the case that Facebook Messenger still doesn't work with Telepathy?

I have read about that purple-facebook for pidgin should work with telepathy-haze package but I have never found out how to use it with empathy or kde telepathy.. Maybe there is some people here that knows how to get it to work? Because that's the only way I know to use Facebook on Linux and telepathy. (or pidgin) Because the old protocol does not work anymore..

For those of you who are asking whether Papyros will support Google Play, or Android app x, or Android apps in general, here's what the general consensus is:

Android is about as close to PapyrOS as ChromeOS is, the kernel and coreutils are pretty much the only similarities, and even those are heavily patched for whatever device you're using. ChromeOS is getting the entire Android app ecosystem simply because they made a container technology to store the app AND the backend needed. PapyrOS doesn't have anything like that, just because Papyros uses the material guidelines does NOT automatically make it similar enough to android to run it's apps, the material guidelines are simply for UI look, feel, and interactivity, nothing more, nothing less.

Mods, feel free to take that bit and add it to the pinned post or pin this post as well (if the latter is possible), the multitude of people asking the same question that's been asked for months is getting old, I saw enough of that over at Elementary OS's community about their Loki release.

Decided to see how Arnoldthebats special builds run on my $600 2-in-1 laptop (which most builds wouldn't pick up wifi and can't be set up without that), and man, it works nicely! turns out wifi was the ONLY issue, touchpad AND touchscreen work without hitch. anyone else tried turning a semi-expensive or really expensive laptop into a bit of a tinkerer's Chromebook? it's nice. granted you nowadays have to pull the pepper flash plugin from the Chome deb that matches the version of chromium os running, and Widevine is just about out of the question without additional patches added to the build.

This might be obvious, but asking anyway. I take it proproetary drivers like Catalyst or nvidia won't work in the shell? Either way my laptop should run this nicely (in theory, it's an Intel based machine GPU and all)

Before I run into this, is Wine staging available? Or should I compile it manually? I'm not against compiling it, but I've learned from other distros that the package managers should know about as many other packages as possible.
