Focal Fossa is now open for development, with the syncs from unstable
done and built, and autopkg testers trying to catch up. The development version
starts with only a few changes:
- Python 3.8 is now added as a supported Python3 version, with the
goal to ship Python 3.8 as the only Python3 version in focal.
Details will follow on the ubuntu-devel ML.
- Perl was updated to version 5.30.
- s390x is now built targeting z13 (GCC only for now).
- While the Python2 removals imported from Debian are just
syncs like any others, it's worth pointing out that
some uncoordinated removals are causing some churn ,
and on top of that there is a Ubuntu dept/delta which needs to
see fixing as well .
Please check your uploads in a focal chroot, don't just test in a eoan or bionic
environment. See  or  how to setup such a development chroot.
