    • 9to5Linux9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: May 7th, 2023

      This week has been really slow in news and releases. We only got a new Linux laptop from Kubuntu Focus, as well as new OBS Studio, Raspberry Pi OS, and LibreOffice releases. On top of that, Ubuntu fans can test drive the daily builds of the upcoming Ubuntu 23.10 release and the first Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 6.4 kernel series.

      Last but not least, Arch Linux and openSUSE Tumbleweed both received the latest Linux 6.3 kernel upgrade this week, and GNOME 44 finally arrived in Arch Linux’s repos. I invite you to check out the hottest news of this week and access all the distro and package downloads in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for May 7th, 2023, below.

      • Kubernetes BlogBlog: Kubernetes 1.27: Introducing An API For Volume Group Snapshots

        Volume group snapshot is introduced as an Alpha feature in Kubernetes v1.27. This feature introduces a Kubernetes API that allows users to take crash consistent snapshots for multiple volumes together. It uses a label selector to group multiple PersistentVolumeClaims for snapshotting. This new feature is only supported for CSI volume drivers.

        An overview of volume group snapshots

        Some storage systems provide the ability to create a crash consistent snapshot of multiple volumes. A group snapshot represents “copies” from multiple volumes that are taken at the same point-in-time. A group snapshot can be used either to rehydrate new volumes (pre-populated with the snapshot data) or to restore existing volumes to a previous state (represented by the snapshots).
