Providing the benchmark test results, Michael is surprised at the
performance boost.

=== Desktop Icons For The GNOME Shell Are Back With Beta Extension ===

Michael Larabel reminds us that GNOME Shell dropped desktop icons, a
much beloved and missed feature, which has now sort of returned thanks
to Red Hat developer Carlos Soriano. With the intention of restoring the
icons for use in the "classic" mode, including the ability to open,
execute, cut/copy and open in terminal. It requires GNOME Shell 3.28 and
the latest daily builds. More details can found in Carlos’ blog post.

week, providing details on the bugs and a link to the mailing list.

Ubuntu 20.10 ===

Marius Nestor relates that Lubuntu plans to move to the more secure and
capable Wayland in Lubuntu 20.10. He tells us of the reasons for the
move according to Lubuntu developer Simon Quigley. Marius reminds us
that the first release of the distribution with LXQt is due on October

=== Ubuntu/Debian Add LZ4-Compressed Initramfs Support, Will Auto Decide
LZ4/XZ Choice ===

Michael Larabel reminds of discussions back in March on Ubuntu 18.10
using LZ4-compressed kernel images (initramfs) before telling us it's
now here on the latest Ubuntu and Debian packages. He tells us of LZ4
providing faster decompression than the old Gzip/XZ method but producing
larger files, which is why Ubuntu will use an automatic determination on
which compression to use.
