9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: May 9th, 2021

This week has been full of great news, starting with the release of the GParted 1.3 open-source partition editor, the Nitrux 1.4 Linux distribution, the Cawbird 1.4 Twitter client, the KDE Frameworks 5.82 software suite, as well as the Armbian 21.05 ARM distro. On top of that, I take a first look at the elementary OS 6 beta, Star Labs kicks off pre-orders for its brand-new StarBook Mk V Linux laptop, UBports calls for testing for their upcoming Ubuntu Touch OTA-17 software update, and Rocky Linux 8.3 and Linux kernel 5.13 now have a Release Candidate ready for public testing.
