Aggiornamenti di sicurezza importanti per Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin: The Xorg X Server, Plasma Library KDE Platform, Java Script, Nepomuk Sync Interface, Gwibber ed altri.

precise-coverSappiamo tutti quanto sia importante mantenere aggiornato il proprio sistema operativo, ma è parimenti esperienza comune che spesso siano proprio gli aggiornamenti a introdurre nuovi bug.

Ubuntu segue delle linee guida ben precise per gestire questa situazione.

La chiave di volta dell’intero discorso è che, una volta rilasciata la release, gli aggiornamenti non si fanno affatto, a meno che non riguardino vulnerabilità di sicurezza o bug particolarmente significativi.

Addirittura, nell’ottica di stabilizzare la release, già durante le ultime fasi di sviluppo l’ingresso di nuovi pacchetti dei vari software è sottoposto ad un controllo particolarmente rigido (una fase nota agli sviluppatori come “Feature Freeze”, appunto).

Gli aggiornamenti proposti a continuazione fanno parte del bollettino di sicurezza settimanale rilasciato da Canonical e riguardano in particolare i primi aggiornamenti importanti sulla sicurezza riguardanti la neonata Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin:

  • The Xorg X server.
  • Java Script.Plasma Library for the KDE Platform.
  • Nepomuk Sync Interface.Media Transfer Protocol.
  • Ktext Editor Interfaces for the KDE Platform.
  • Pseudo Terminal Library.
  • Qwibber GTK Widgets.

The Xorg X server.

xorg_logo

The Xorg X server is an X server for several architectures and operating systems, which is derived from the XFree86 4.x series of X servers.
The Xorg server supports most modern graphics hardware from most vendors, and supersedes all XFree86 X servers.
More information about X.Org can be found at: <URL:
http://www.X.org>
This package is built from the X.org xserver module.

Plasma aims to change the traditional concepts of the "Desktop", incorporating semantic application elements, and bringing cooperating technologies to the user's fingertips in a way that is visually appealing while easing work flow.
It is part of the KDE Development Platform libraries module.

Ktext Editor Interfaces for the KDE Platform.

ktext editor

This package provides the KTextEditor interfaces (also called KTE interfaces) that are a set of well-defined interfaces which an application or library can implement to provide advanced plain text editing services. Applications which utilise this interface can thus allow the user to choose which implementation of the editor component to use. The only implementation right now is the Kate Editor Component (Kate Part).
This package is part of the KDE Development Platform libraries module.
