Issue 224 (June 2017) - Ubuntu 17.04 Revealed!

The release of Ubuntu 17.04 is accompanied by the shock news of a return to a Gnome desktop, the death of Unity and Mir, plus mass redundancies at Canonical. We’ll be covering all the new features and the unexpected news in LXF224.
But certainly, orange distros aren’t the only Linux fruit, so we’re looking at the best KDE-based distros in Roundup, how to systematically benchmark any Linux distro and we report on all the excitement from the UK’s MakerFaire 2017. Plus all this too:

Asus Tinker Board - we pit the new SBPC against the Pi
Swift 3 - discover what’s in the latest release
pfSense - build a pro-level firewall
Routers - create your own router hardware with Ubuntu
Django - start developing with the Django framework
Wall calendar - build your own smart wall-mounted calendar
WebDev - put together a web development toolkit
HAProxy - the reverse proxy you need to be running
Google WiFi - why this is your next wireless router
