Ubuntu 19.04 “Disco Dingo”.

Ubuntu 19.04 "Disco Dingo".

Martin Wimpress has announced the launch of Ubuntu MATE 19.04 which ships with version 1.20 of the MATE desktop and updated video drivers. "Ubuntu MATE 19.04 is shipping with MATE Desktop 1.20. Albeit, the latest maintenance release of MATE Desktop 1.20 with some of the bug fixes and new features from MATE Desktop 1.22 included. In fact, the version of MATE Desktop being shipped in 19.04 is derived from the same MATE packages that will feature in the upcoming Debian 10 (Buster) release. You may be wondering why we're not shipping MATE Desktop 1.22? The answer: stability. MATE Desktop 1.22 introduces some underlying API changes in core components and while all first party MATE Desktop applications are compatible with the changes and completely stable, some third party applications are not. Some third party applications are big crashers now and we've not been able to fix them in time. So, we are playing it safe and sticking with MATE Desktop 1.20 and working with upstreams so we can land MATE Desktop 1.22 early in the Ubuntu MATE 19.10 development cycle." Further information can be found in the project's release announcement and in the Ubuntu release notes. Download: ubuntu-mate-19.04-desktop-amd64.iso (1,988MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist).

The Ubuntu Studio team has published a new release, Ubuntu Studio 19.04. The new release is supported for nine months and ships with a new audio plugin host called Carla. "Officially released on April 15, 2019, Carla 2.0.0 has been added to Ubuntu Studio to replace the outdated jack-rack and add more functionality. Carla is an audio plugin host that can handle many different types of plugins, from Ladspa to DSSI to LV2 to VST. In fact, if you install the WINE bridge (not installed by default), Carla can host Windows-compiled VST plugins. Carla can also act as a plugin itself, allowing your DAW to use any audio plugin. Carla also includes a patchbay, which is functionally similar to that of Patchage. Ubuntu Studio Controls has been upgraded to 1.7 with many bugfixes, and is now the preferred method for starting Jack. As such, we ask that you discontinue use of QJackCtl for starting Jack. QJackCtl remains a good way to monitor Jack’s performance and logs." Further details on the project's latest version can be found in the distribution's release announcement.

Con la puntualidad que la caracteriza Canonical ha publicado la nueva versión de Ubuntu con todas sus derivadas oficiales.

Es hora de echar un vistazo a lo que viene a esta nueva versión.

Los nombres de código de Ubuntu están en orden alfabético incremental, ahora tenemos Cosmic Cuttlefish después de Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver.

Nuevas Características en Ubuntu 18.10 “Cosmic Cuttlefish

Nuevas Características en Ubuntu 18.10


GNOME 3.30

GNOME 3.30 fue lanzado en septiembre 2018. Ubuntu 18.10 tendrá esta nueva versión de GNOME.


Nuevos temas e iconos por defecto.

Se suponía que Ubuntu 18.04 tendría una nueva apariencia con la comunidad desarrollada bajo el nombre de Communitheme . Este tema no se pudo completar a tiempo para la versión 18.04. Ubuntu 18.10 ahora tiene el tema de la Comunidad Yaru instalado de forma predeterminada, lo que le da un aspecto fresco y deslumbrante.

Mayor duración de la batería para portátiles.

Siguiendo el ejemplo de Fedora 28 , Canonical (empresa matriz de Ubuntu) también está trabajando para mejorar la duración de la batería de las computadoras portátiles. El kernel de Linux tiene opciones para cambiar los controladores de disco duro, los controladores USB y otros dispositivos similares a un estado de bajo consumo cuando no están en uso. Esto reduce el consumo general de energía y, por lo tanto, mejora la vida útil de la batería.

Sin embargo, hacer esto automáticamente causa problemas y es por esto que Ubuntu no tuvo este comportamiento habilitado en el pasado.

El equipo de desarrollo de Ubuntu está explorando aún más estas opciones para ver qué se podría hacer para mejorar la vida útil de la batería sin afectar la estabilidad del sistema.

Soporte para escáner de huellas digitales.

Ubuntu 18.10 tendrá soporte para escáner de huellas dactilares. Esto significa que si su computadora tiene un escáner de huellas dactilares, podrá desbloquear su sistema Ubuntu con huellas dactilares.

Mejora del tiempo de inicio y soporte de portales XDG para aplicaciones Snap.

Siguiendo con su enfoque en los paquetes Snap , Canonical le está aportando algunas mejoras útiles. Las aplicaciones instantáneas tardarán menos tiempo en iniciarse.

Linux Kernel 4.18

Ubuntu 18.10 tiene Linux Kernel 4.18. Esta versión del Kernel tiene algunas mejoras para AMD y Nvidia GPU, USB Type-C y Thunderbolt, y optimizaciones de rendimiento en CPUfreq entre otras muchas características.

Soporte de 32 bits.

Ubuntu GNOME predeterminado ha dejado de proporcionar ISO de 32 bits desde la versión Ubuntu 17.10. Algunos otras derivadas de Ubuntu como Ubuntu MATE, Kubuntu, etc., todavía ofrecen descargas iso de 32 bits hasta la versión 18.04.

Pero parece que todo está cambiando ahora.

Ubuntu MATE ha anunciado que no habrá una imagen de 32 bits para Ubuntu MATE 18.10 . Ubuntu Budgie y Kubuntu también han anunciado que están lanzando la versión de 32 bits.
Los usuarios existentes de 32 bits aún obtendrán soporte hasta 2023.

Instalación más rápida y arranque con nuevos algoritmos de compresión.

Trabajando con nuevos algoritmos de compresión como LZ4 y ztsd , Se supone que Ubuntu 18.10 tiene un arranque un 10% más rápido. La instalación también será un poco más rápida. Lo que definitivamente es una buena noticia para todos los usuarios de Ubuntu.

Otros cambios diversos en Ubuntu 18.10

Algunos otros cambios en el próximo Ubuntu 18.10 son los siguientes:
Mejoras de UI y UX al software GNOME (posibilidad)
Soporte DLNA para conectar Ubuntu con Smart TV, tabletas y otros dispositivos compatibles con DLNA
Un instalador nuevo y mejorado (menos probable que se complete antes de la versión 18.10)
Ubuntu Software elimina las dependencias al desinstalar el software
Ubuntu Software mostrará una marca verde verificada para las aplicaciones Snap desarrolladas por el propietario de la marca. Lo mismo se puede encontrar en el sitio web de la tienda Snap recientemente rediseñado.

El lanzamiento de todas las derivadas oficiales via Distrowatch:

Ubuntu Mate.

ubuntumate (1)Martin Wimpress has announced the release of Ubuntu MATE18.10. The new version ships with version 1.20.3 of the MATE desktop environment and will receive nine months of support. "Curiously, the work during this Ubuntu MATE 18.10 release has really been focused on what will become Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2. Let me explain. The upstream MATE Desktop team have been working on many bug fixes for MATE desktop 1.20.3, that has resulted in a lot of maintenance updates in the upstream releases of MATE desktop. The Debian packaging team for MATE Desktop, of which I am member, has been updating all the MATE packages to track these upstream bug fixes and new releases. Just about all MATE desktop packages and associated components, such as AppMenu and MATE Dock Applet have been updated. Now that all these fixes exist in the 18.10 release, we will start the process of SRU'ing (backporting) them to 18.04 so that they will feature in the Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 release due in February 2019. The fixes should start landing in Ubuntu MATE 18.04 very soon, well before the February deadline. Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 will include a hardware enablement stack (HWE) based on what is shipped in Ubuntu 18.10...." Additional information can be found in the distribution's release announcement.

Ubuntu Studio.

ubuntustudio_thumbThe Ubuntu Studio team has announced the release of version 18.10 of their multimedia-focused distribution. The new release enables the automatic use of JACK for removable USB audio devices and introduces PikoPixel for editing pixel part. "Ubuntu Studio Controls has historically been the app to run to get initial audio configuration set for your system. This release, Ubuntu Studio Controls has undergone a major rewrite, and has the following features: Option for changing the CPU governor; configuration of JACK, including any attached USB audio devices; configuration of the JACK-PulseAudio Bridge; configuration of the JACK-ALSA MIDI Bridge. Ubuntu Studio Controls now, for the first time ever for any JACK configuration GUI, configures JACK to automatically detect hot-plugged USB audio devices and allows you to use more than one audio device at a time. This is something you will find in no other such utility. Future plans for Ubuntu Studio Controls includes configuration of WACOM Tablets, which is something currently not available in our default Xfce desktop environment." Additional details and future plans can be found in the distribution's release announcement and in the release notes.

Highlights: several Xfce components and applications were updated to their 4.13 development releases, bringing us closer to a GTK+ 3-only desktop; elementary Xfce icon theme 0.13 with the manila folder icons as seen in the upstream elementary icon theme; Greybird 3.22.9 which improves the look and feel of our window manager, alt-tab dialog, Chromium and even pavucontrol; a new default wallpaper featuring a gentle purple tone that greatly complements our GTK+ and icon themes.

Canonical ha publicado la nueva versión de Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver, novedades y descargas.

Hace pocas horas Canonical con la puntualidad que la caracteriza ha publicado la nueva versión de Ubuntu LTS.

Se trata de Bionic Beaver y lleva el número 18.04
  
En un post anterior ya habíanos explicado con mayor detalle los cambios operados en la nueva versión.

El Castor Biónico presenta algunas características importantes, tal vez no visivas pero que contribuyen a mejorar notoriamente sus prestaciones, después de la experiencia -no muy exitosa- de Unity.
Fondo de pantalla por defecto en Ubuntu 18.04 "Bionic Beaver"

Ahora los resumimos:

Nuevas características de Ubuntu 18.04


Escritorio GNOME 3.28

Con la versión 17.10, Canonical ya dio un cambio al escritorio GNOME con algunos ajustes de forma predeterminados. Por ello, para aquellos usuarios que no hayan utilizado esta última versión, los cambios van a ser notables.

Se espera que sea la versión GNOME 3.28 la que se envíe con Ubuntu 18.04.

Kernel 4.15


En cada nueva versión, el equipo de Kernel de Ubuntu tiene la tarea de elegir qué versión utilizar. Esto significa que cada 6 meses tienen que tomar la decisión. Desde el equipo de trabajo indican que esperan que sea la versión 4.15 la que esté en Ubuntu 18.04.


Xorg por defecto.


En abril, el próximo lanzamiento de LTS vendrá con gráficos tradicionales de Xorg, que será el predeterminado. El equipo de desarrollo de Ubuntu ha enumerado diferentes motivos para esta elección, incluido un mejor rendimiento de software como Hangouts, Skype y servicios WebRTC en Xorg.

También se recupera mejor de los problemas de Shell. Para Ubuntu 18.10, el equipo volverá a evaluar Wayland como el valor predeterminado.

Opción de instalación mínima.

Opción de instalación mínima en Ubuntu 18.04 "Bionic Beaver".

En la próxima versión de Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, los usuarios podrán realizar una instalación ligera de Ubuntu. Esta opción eliminará muchos paquetes de software y podremos obtener un sistema con un entorno de escritorio, navegador web, herramientas del sistema central y no mucho más.

Esta opción aparecerá en el instalador de Ubuntu.

Ubuntu 18.04 recopilará algunos datos.


Según un reciente anuncio hecho en la lista de correo de Ubuntu, Canonical comenzará a recopilar algunos datos del usuario relacionados con la configuración del sistema y paquetes instalados en la máquina.

De ello hablamos ampliamente en un artículo anterior. A partir de Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, esta opción de exclusión se proporcionará en el instalador.

Nuevo instalador para Ubuntu Server.


Nuevo instalador en Ubuntu Server.

Con Ubuntu 18.04, Canonical finalmente actualizará el instalador de línea de comando del Servidor Ubuntu. El nuevo instalador llamado Subiquity será el predeterminado en la próxima versión de LTS.





Este cambio le dará un nuevo aspecto al proceso de instalación del servidor, que hasta ahora había sido el instalador basado en texto de Debian.

Tiempo de arranque más rápido.

Canonical también está trabajando para acelerar el tiempo de arranque de Ubuntu mediante el uso de las características de systemd. Este es un cambio interesante.

Derivadas oficiales.

Martin Wimpress has announced the release of Ubuntu MATE 18.04, the latest version of the popular Ubuntu variant featuring the MATE desktop environment. This new version comes with the new MATE 1.20.1: "The MATE Desktop has transitioned from the GTK+ 2.24-based MATE 1.12 to the very latest MATE 1.20.1 based on GTK+ 3.22. This migration has been several years in the making, and most of 2016 and 2017 was spent refining the GTK+ 3 implementation. The move to GTK+ 3 has made it possible to introduce many of the new features you'll read about below. Support for libinput has been added and is now the default input handler for mouse and touchpad, which has resulted in much improved responsiveness and support for multi-finger touch gestures. Thanks to our friends at Hypra.fr, accessibility support (particularly for visually impaired users) has seen continued development and improvement. MATE Desktop is proud to provide visually impaired users the most accessible open-source desktop environment. MATE Desktop 1.20 supports HiDPI displays and if you have one then Ubuntu MATE will automatically enable pixel scaling, presenting you with a super crisp desktop and applications."

Disponible para la descarga Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aadvark con todas sus derivadas oficiales.

Desde el pasado 19 de octubre se encuentra disponible una nueva versión de Ubuntu.
La misma tiene como característica principal que cuenta con el entorno gráfico GNOME por omisión, y ya no mas el clásico Unity, fuente de innumerables problemas para los usuarios con PC de una cierta antiguedad.
Con Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark se inicia una nueva etapa, y no solo por contar de nuevo con GNOME, también se cambia el servidor gráfico y clásico Xorg a Wayland, aunque el primero se podrá seguir utilizando de ser necesario.

Por otro lado tenemos GDM3, que será quien se encargara de gestionar el inicio de sesión y pantalla de bloqueo.

Poco ha cambiado luego de estos tres puntos, y ademas no hay gran cambio de quien estuvo utilizando las versiones betas.

Con lo cual tan solo resta probarlo.
Leer también: Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark no estará disponible en la tradicional versión de 32 bits.
Nuestro consejo es que realicen la instalación de “0” y no actualicen, ya que hubo muchos cambios en las versiones anteriores.

Por otro lado no siempre las actualizaciones conducen a un final feliz.

A continuación todos los links para las descargas no sólo de Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aadvark sino tambiún de todas sus derivadas oficiales via Distrowatch.
Ubuntu 17.10 "Artful Aardvark"

Adam Conrad has announced the availability of a new version of the popular Ubuntu distribution. Ubuntu 17.10, which carries the code name "Artful Aardvark" switches the default desktop from Unity to GNOME. "Code-named 'Artful Aardvark', Ubuntu 17.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technology into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. As always, the team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs. Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including a new 4.13-based kernel, glibc 2.26, gcc 7.2, and much more. Ubuntu Desktop has had a major overhaul, with the switch from Unity as our default desktop to GNOME3 and GNOME Shell.

Ubuntu Mate 17.10 "Artful Aardvark"
Martin Wimpress has announced the release of Ubuntu MATE 17.10. The new version features a number of desktop changes, including a global menu bar placed at the top of the screen. The 17.10 release also features an improved Heads-Up Display (HUD) which makes it possible to search through application menus using only the keyboard. "This is something we started during Ubuntu MATE 16.10 and never perfected, but is now ready for prime time. A favourite of Unity 7 users is the Heads-Up Display (HUD) which provides a way to search for and run menu-bar commands without your fingers ever leaving the keyboard. So if you're trying to find that single filter in GIMP but can't remember which filter category it fits into or if you can't recall if preferences sits under File, Edit or Tools on your favourite browser, you can just search for it rather than hunting through the menus. Just like Global Menus the HUD is currently only available via the Contemporary, Cupertino and Mutiny [layouts]."

Xubuntu 17.10 "Artful Aardvark"

The Xubuntu team has announced the release of Xubuntu 17.10. The new version includes significant improvements to accelerated video playback on Intel video cards. The distribution also includes support for driverless printing and includes the GNOME Font Viewer by default. "The GNOME Font Viewer is now included by default. This application simplifies viewing and installing fonts. Client side decorations (CSD) now consume much less space with the Greybird GTK+ theme. New device, mimetype, and monochrome panel icons have been included with the elementary-xfce icon theme. We usually link directly to the Ubuntu release notes, but there are several significant improvements that affect all flavours and our users: Accelerated video playback with Intel hardware should now work more reliably out of the box. The changes might also bring some performance improvements for Parole and Chromium users. Bluetooth and USB audio devices should now work better by default due to changes in BlueZ and PulseAudio. Driverless printing has been added to Ubuntu. This provides support for most modern printers: IPP Everywhere, Apple AirPrint, Mopria, PCLm, and Wifi Direct as supported. Other printers can still be added from the Printers dialog." Further information can be found in the project's release announcement.
