The Antergos Distro Is Ending, HP Linux Imaging and Printing Software Updated to Version 3.19.5, Kail Linux 2019.2 Is Out, Tails 3.14 Released and openSUSE 15.1 Leap Is Now Available

News briefs for May 22, 2019.

The Antergos Linux distro is calling it quits. The developers of the
Arch-based distro say they no longer have time to maintain it properly, and
are taking the action now while the code is still working in case other
developers want to start their own projects with it. From the Antergos
blog: “For existing Antergos users: there is no need to worry about your
installed systems as they will continue to receive updates directly from
Arch. Soon, we will release an update that will remove the Antergos repos
from your system along with any Antergos-specific packages that no longer
serve a purpose due to the project ending. Once that is completed, any
packages installed from the Antergos repo that are in the AUR will begin to
receive updates from there.”

HP Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) software has been updated to version
3.19.5 for Linux-based OSes. According to Softpedia
News, this new release of the open-source and free print, scan and fax
driver solution for HP printers and scanners supports “a plethora of new HP
printers” (too many to list here), and it also brings support for several new
distros, such as “Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo), Debian GNU/Linux 9.8, and
Fedora 30”. See the official HPLIP
3.19.5 Release Notes for more information.
