Codenamed "Eoan Ermine", 19.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
The Ubuntu kernel has been updated to the 5.3 based Linux kernel, and
our default toolchain has moved to gcc 9.2 with glibc 2.30. Additionally,
the Raspberry Pi images now support the new Pi 4 as well as 2 and 3.
Ubuntu Desktop 19.10 introduces GNOME 3.34 the fastest release yet with
significant performance improvements delivering a more responsive
experience. App organisation is easier with the ability to drag and drop
icons into categorised folders and users can select light or dark Yaru
theme variants. The Ubuntu Desktop installer also introduces installing
to ZFS as a root filesystem as an experimental feature.
Ubuntu Server 19.10 integrates recent innovations from key open
infrastructure projects like OpenStack Train, Kubernetes, and Ceph with
advanced life-cycle management for multi-cloud and on-prem operations,
from bare metal, VMware and OpenStack to every major public cloud.
The newest Ubuntu Budgie, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE,
Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu are also being released today.
More details can be found for these at their individual release notes:
Maintenance updates will be provided for 9 months for all flavours
releasing with 19.10.
