Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine

It's official: Canonical has released Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine. Although to be true to the truth, we have to separate the above into two points: yes, Ubuntu 19.10 is already available, but the release will not be 100% official until the different web pages are updated and we can download the ISO images from them. Right now, we can download them from the web cdimage.ubuntu.com, Canonical's FTP server to which the official pages will link in the next few minutes / hours. Here you have one Ubuntu 19.10 installation guide for newbies

Unlike six months ago when there were versions that took longer to arrive, this time they have all been released practically at the same time. From the beginning and all at once Ubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Budgie, Kubuntu and Lubuntu have been available, but some Xubuntu and Ubuntu Studio were missing that arrived a half hour later. At the time of writing this article they were already all images available on the FTP server by Canonical.

Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine will be supported for 9 months

Regarding functions that the entire Eoan Ermine family includes, we have the initial support for ZFS as root, compression LZ4, Linux 5.3 or the NVIDIA drivers available from the same ISO image. If we have to mention a specific flavor feature, Ubuntu uses GNOME 3.34, which makes it the fastest version since its move to Unity, Kubuntu uses Plasma 5.16.5 and KDE Applications 19.04.3 and Ubuntu MATE has done some important work. cleaning that make it faster and more stable than previous versions.

When the release is 100% official, the different teams of developers will update the different web pages and also we can update from the terminal by entering the following command:

sudo do-release-update

The next version will already be an Ubuntu 20.04 with the codename Focal Fossa which will introduce important new features such as full support for ZFS as root. Its release date, April 23, 2020.

      Is it true that Chromium comes only in a snap package ?. The question is is it like this in all flavors or only with gnome?
      I don't like the idea of ​​imposing snap packages on us.

        Hello, Juan Carlos. It was said a long time ago that they were considering doing it. Right now, if you try it with the ATP command it doesn't appear. And in software stores it is only as Snap.

        a greeting
