The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites you
to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, August 15 at ATS in Malvern, PA
from 7-9 pm.

This month, PLUG West welcomes back Elizabeth K. Joseph, who will be
giving a talk on Ubuntu 16.04.

   Ubuntu 16.04 is the latest Long-Term Support (LTS) release from the
   Ubuntu community and Canonical. This talk will be a tour of new
   features, including disabling of Amazon search by default, replacement
   of the Ubuntu Software Center, replacement of init system with systemd
   (new since the last LTS release), ability to move the Unity launcher
   to the bottom of the screen, inclusion of ZFS and the introduction of
   Snappy. An update on the progress of Ubuntu on phones and tablets will
   also be presented, with a demonstration of the first convergence
   device on the market, the bq Aquaris M10 Ubuntu edition.

   Elizabeth K. Joseph is a Senior Automation and Tools Engineer at HPE
   working on the OpenStack Infrastructure team. She is a former member
   of the Ubuntu Community Council and is a co-author of the 8th and
   9th editions of The Official Ubuntu Book. She lives in San Francisco
   where she serves on the Board of Directors for Partimus.org, a
   non-profit providing Linux-based computers to area education and
   low-income housing centers in need.


She'll be bringing along a copy of The Ubuntu Official Book, 9th Edition
to give away at the meeting:
