    Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS Beta (Focal Fossa) Released

The Ubuntu Studio team is pleased to announce the beta release of Ubuntu
Studio 20.04 LTS, codenamed Focal Fossa.

While this beta is reasonably free of any showstopper DVD build or
installer bugs, you may find some bugs within. This image is, however,
reasonably representative of what you will find when Ubuntu Studio 20.04
LTS is released on April 23, 2020.

    New Features

In terms of new features, Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS builds on the
foundation of Ubuntu Studio 19.10, including a few new audio plugins to
already compliment its large collection of audio plugins for audio
production purposes.

Graphics artists will be happy to see the return of *MyPaint*. Due to a
library conflict, MyPaint could not be installed simultaneously with
Gimp 2.10. As such, MyPaint was removed. The latest version of MyPaint
does not have that conflict and was returned to Ubuntu Studio’s defualt

*Ubuntu Studio Controls* has been updated and now includes the ability
to assign names to pulseaudio-Jack bridges. Additionally, the interface
was simplified and organized across multiple tabs in order to shrink the
interface to a reasonable size.
