Now available the first beta of Ubuntu 19.10 and its official flavors

Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine beta 1

They haven't done anything on the scheduled day, at least in Spanish time, but it doesn't matter anymore: Canonical has made the Ubuntu 19.10 first beta Eoan Ermine. The launch was scheduled for yesterday, September 26 and should have arrived at noon, but it has already arrived at dawn today. The beta candidate was available since last Wednesday.

This time Ubuntu Budgie was not the earliest riser being the first to break the news as it has been in past releases or with him launch of the first beta candidate de Eoan Ermine. Neither has Ubuntu / Canonical, who only announces releases when everything is in place. And it is that when Kubuntu has published his tweet talking about the availability of the KDE version of Ubuntu, what was available as "Ubuntu" was still the "Server" version.

The stable version of Ubuntu 19.10 will arrive on October 17

This beta already solves all the problems that would prevent the correct execution of the operating system, in which it is included that the installer works as expected. But, once installed, we must bear in mind that we are facing operating systems whose stable version will be released in a few weeks, on October 17 to be more exact.

As for what the Eoan Ermine brand will include in general, the most prominent novelty is the kernel Linux 5.3 which includes many new features, many of them related to hardware support. On the other hand, all flavors will include new versions of their graphical environments and updated packages of components such as applications. The graphical environment that Ubuntu will use is GNOME 3.34 (the beta includes GNOME 3.33.91, which is the second beta of GNOME 3.34), while another popular flavor such as Kubuntu will use Plasma 5.16.

You can download the Eoan Ermine betas from these links:Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, Ubuntu Budgie y Ubuntu Kylin.
