WireGuard VPN makes it to 1.0.0—and into the next Linux kernel

We’ve been anticipating WireGuard’s inclusion into the mainline Linux kernel for quite some time—but as of Sunday afternoon, it’s official. Linus Torvalds released the Linux 5.6 kernel, which includes (among other things) an in-tree WireGuard. Phoronix has a great short list of the most interesting new features in the 5.6 kernel, as well as a longer “everything list” for those who want to make sure they don’t miss anything.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about WireGuard, the TL;DR is that it’s a relatively new VPN (Virtual Private Network) application that offers a leaner codebase, easier configuration, faster connect times, and the latest and most thoroughly peer-reviewed and approved encryption algorithms. You can find a more detailed introduction in our initial August 2018 coverage.
Can I use this on Windows? Mac? BSD?

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS released Wednesday—here’s what’s new

Enlarge / Wherever possible, we recommend most users stick to LTS releases. Today’s 18.04.4 update makes that possible for newer hardware, like HP’s Dragonfly Elite G1. (credit: Jim Salter)
This Wednesday, the current Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Service) release—Bionic Beaver—launched its fourth maintenance update.
Ubuntu is one of the most predictable operating system distributions in terms of its release cycle—a new version is launched in April and October of each year. Most of these are interim releases, supported for a single year from launch; but the April release of each even-numbered year is an LTS, supported for five years. LTS releases also get maintenance releases as necessary, typically about every three to six months during the support cycle of the LTS.
Today’s release, 18.04.4, is one of those maintenance releases. It’s not as shiny and exciting as entirely new versions, of course, but it does pack in some worthwhile security and bugfix
