Paste Review - Clipboard Manager Focused on Improving Productivity

The copy and paste feature is an intrinsic part of any operating system, but the one-item-at-a-time approach might seem too time-consuming to users who juggle with a lot of the same assets on a daily basis. Paste aims to reduce the number of repetitive actions by transforming the clipboard history into an unlimited resource. Like any other clipboard manager, once launched, Paste starts recording everything you put on your clipboard and makes the database navigable and searchable. What makes the Paste application stand out are the design choices and the simple control: a separate card is created for each clipping, and you get to browse through them via a large panel placed in the bottom area of your screen. The Paste utility can deal with text content, images, links, files, or folders, but keep in mind that it will only store references so that it won’t take up too much storage space. The Paste cards...

Canonical has announced the first point release of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, finally allowing users of Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS (Trusty Tahr) to upgrade their installations.

Hacker Downloads Vine's Entire Source Code

It took Twitter five minutes to fix a critical security flaw that would have allowed an attacker to download Vine's entire source code from its servers. Security researcher Avicoder is the one who discovered this issue, which he reported to Twitter on March 31. At the core of this issue resides an insecure Docker setup used by Twitter's staff to manage Vine's content. Internet-available Docker installation exposes Vine source code Docker is an open platform for managing server images, building, shipping and managing applications. Docker can be used to deploy OS images for laptops, VMs, or cloud servers alike. Usually, Docker installations are not publicly accessible, due to the sensitive nature of the content they handle. Twitter's Docker installation was, and that allowed Avicoder to probe around to see what he could discover. Even worse, Twitter wasn't running the latest version of Docker (v2), but an older API, v1.

Mozilla Thunderbird 45 Finally Lands in the Main Ubuntu Linux Repositories

After a long wait, Canonical has finally decided that it was time to upgrade the Mozilla Thunderbird software on all of its supported Ubuntu Linux operating systems, where it is used as the default email and news client. Users have been begging Canonical for the latest Mozilla Thunderbird version on Ubuntu for so long, but the company behind one of the most popular free operating systems kept them in the dark, without giving them a proper answer to why version 45.x of the widely used open-source software was not suitable for supported Ubuntu releases. Of course, there was a way to run Mozilla Thunderbird 45.0 or later on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS (Trusty Tahr), and Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin) via an official PPA (Personal Package Archive) from the Mozi...
