The Ubuntu Studio team is pleased to announce the beta release of Ubuntu
Studio 20.10, codenamed Groovy Gorilla.

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 20.10
is released on October 22, 2020.

*Please note: Due to the change in desktop environment, directly
upgrading to Ubuntu Studio 20.10 is not and will not be supported. See
the Release Notes for more information.*

Full updated information is available in the *Release Notes

    New Features

Ubuntu Studio 20.10 is the first release of Ubuntu Studio to use
the *KDE Plasma Desktop* *Environment* by default. This is a solid,
stable desktop environment chosen due to its incredible customizability,
low memory footprint, and many other reasons. The KDE community and
Ubuntu Studio have a unique synergy in that they are both striving to be
the choice of artists of all kinds, so this is an ideal development
relationship going forward.

*Jack Mixer* has returned and is installed by default.

*Studio Controls *has succeeded *Ubuntu Studio Controls* and is now an
upstream project available for all distributions, also included in
Fedora Jam 33 Beta by default.

*New Session Manager, *the continuation/fork of Non Session Manager, is
included by default.
