The GNU project is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the releases of GNU Mach 1.4 ("This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the release of version 1.3, eleven years ago; really too many (both years and improvements) to list them individually"), GNU MIG 1.4 (MIG being the Mach interface generator), and version 0.5 of the GNU Hurd kernel ("This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the release of version 0.2, 16 years ago"). The Hurd is still 32-bit on x86 only, but a 64-bit port is said to be in the works.

Richard Stallman launched the GNU project on September 27, 1983 — thirty years ago. "GNU will be able to run Unix programs, but will not be identical to Unix. We will make all improvements that are convenient, based on our experience with other operating systems. In particular, we plan to have longer filenames, file version numbers, a crashproof file system, filename completion perhaps, terminal-independent display support, and eventually a Lisp-based window system through which several Lisp programs and ordinary Unix programs can share a screen. Both C and Lisp will be available as system programming languages. We will have network software based on MIT's chaosnet protocol, far superior to UUCP. We may also have something compatible with UUCP." Some of the details may not have come out as envisioned, but the big idea has held up well.
Version 0.8 of the Rust language has been announced. "This was another very active release cycle that continued the trend toward refining the standard library while making minor adjustments to the language. In this release the `for` keyword has been changed to work with `Iterator` types, the runtime and task scheduler was rewritten, a new experimental I/O subsystem was added, and we added a new family of string formatting macros, `format!`, that will eventually replace `fmt!`."
The 3.11.2, 3.10.13, 3.4.63, and 3.0.97 stable kernel updates are all available; each contains the usual set of important fixes.
Peter Liljenberg has developed an add-on for Firefox that copies linked metadata to the clipboard in addition to the "copied" object itself. The initial demonstration of this technique required a specially-crafted page with RDFs metadata linked in, and thus may not seem immediately useful. However, Liljenberg has now implemented a more straightforward use case: copying and pasting an image with attribution data automatically preserved. "The friction for using a shared image is reduced when you don’t have to remember to also write an attribution. The attribution can embed the metadata, so that if someone copies the image from your page, they can also get an attribution created automatically when they paste it into their page."
Debian has updated libvirt (denial of service).
Mandriva has updated kernel (multiple vulnerabilities).
Red Hat has updated openstack-keystone (incorrect token revocation).
Version 2.1.0 ("Rincewind") of the VLC media player is out. "With a new audio core, hardware decoding and encoding, port to mobile platforms, preparation for Ultra-HD video and a special care to support more formats, it is a major upgrade for VLC. Rincewind fixes around a thousand bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 140 volunteers."
The LWN.net Weekly Edition for September 26, 2013 is available.
The GNOME Project has announced the release of GNOME 3.10. Many components in this release have initial support for Wayland. See the release notes for details.

Debian has updated pyopenssl (certificate spoofing).
Oracle has updated rtkit (OL6: authorization bypass).
Scientific Linux has updated rtkit (SL6: authorization bypass).
Version 1.2 of the GStreamer multimedia framework has been released. Packages for GStreamer Core and GStreamer Plugins are available. The 1.2 release is API- and ABI-backwards-compatible with GStreamer 1.0, however there are several new features introduced. Several new plugins are included, including support for DASH adaptive streaming, JPEG2000 images, VP9 and Daala video, and decoding-only support for WebP. There is also a new command-line playback tool called gst-play-1.0 (designed for testing purposes), as well as numerous bugfixes and improvements.
It is often said that the kernel developers are committed to avoiding ABI breaks at almost any cost. But ABI problems can, at times, be hard to avoid. Some have argued that the perf events interface is particularly subject to incompatible ABI changes because the perf tool is part of the kernel tree itself; since perf can evolve with the kernel, there is a possibility that developers might not even notice a break. So the recent discovery of a perf ABI issue is worth looking at as an example of how compatibility problems are handled in that code.
Debian has updated icedove (multiple vulnerabilities).
Nouveau is the reverse-engineered driver for NVIDIA GPUs; it has been developed for a number of years with no assistance from NVIDIA. Now, though, an NVIDIA developer has surfaced on the Nouveau list with an offer to help: "NVIDIA is releasing public documentation on certain aspects of our GPUs, with the intent to address areas that impact the out-of-the-box usability of NVIDIA GPUs with Nouveau. We intend to provide more documentation over time, and guidance in additional areas as we are able." This would appear to be a big step in the right direction.
