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.

The Ubuntu Studio team has published version 18.04 of their distribution. While Ubuntu Studio shares packages with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, this release is not a long term support (LTS) version and offers support for nine months. The distribution's release announcement states: "We are happy to announce the release of our latest version, Ubuntu Studio 18.04 Bionic Beaver!

Although it is not a Long-Term Support release, it is still based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS which means the components will be supported as usual for a LTS release. Since it's just out, you may experience some issues, so you might want to wait a bit before upgrading. Please see the release notes for a complete list of changes and known issues."

Highlights: some GNOME applications are replaced with corresponding MATE applications for improved consistency with almost identical set of features; the Sound Indicator plugin is replaced with the Xfce PulseAudio plugin in the panel, improving the control of volume and multimedia applications from the panel; the new xfce4-notifyd panel plugin is included, allowing users to easily toggle 'do not disturb' mode for notifications as well as view missed notifications; significantly improved menu editing with a new MenuLibre version; better support for HiDPI screens, better consistency and other improvements from the Greybird GTK+ theme."

We've made some notable changes since 16.04 LTS. VLC is the default media player and Cantata Qt5 the default music player.

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.
ubuntu-17.10-aartful-aardvark-640x360
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. Along with that, there are the usual incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK and Qt, and updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice." Additional information can be found in the release announcement and in the release notes. Download (pkglist): ubuntu-17.10-desktop-amd64.iso (1,431MB, SHA256, signature, torrent), ubuntu-17.10-server-amd64.iso (745MB, SHA256, signature, torrent).

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]." Further information on this release, along with screen shots, can be found in the project's release announcement.

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.

At the moment, the setting is not persistent, and needs to be reset at every reboot. BIOS settings may need to be changed for this setting to take effect. Audio - removed zynjacku as this software is no longer maintained by the original developer." See the release announcement and release notes for further information.

Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus y derivadas ya están disponibles para sus descargas incluìda la nueva Ubuntu Budgie.

Como es típico dentro de Ubuntu, la versión correspondiente al mes de abril ya ha sido liberada, lo que significa que ya podemos tener en nuestro ordenador Ubuntu 17.04 o también conocida como Ubuntu Zesty Zapus.

Esta versión trae bastantes mejoras y novedades aunque lo cierto es que su interés se ha centrado en Unity 7 y Gnome debido a la polémica que durante los últimos días ha creado Canonical y Mark Shuttleworth. La nueva versión está disponible para su descarga, pero no es la única versión disponible ya que también los sabores oficiales han lanzado su correspondiente versión.

zesty-zapus

Unity 7 ha recibido algunas actualizaciones menores para su funcionamiento. No así ha ocurrido con Gnome que se ha actualizado a su última versión, Gnome 3.24, una versión que desde luego no veremos en Ubuntu 18.04. Junto a estos escritorios, Ubuntu 17.04 contiene el kernel 4.10 de Linux, un kernel estable y actualizado. También tenemos X.Org 1.19, MESA 17, Libreoffice 5.3 y Mozilla Firefox 52.

Valorie Zimmerman has announced the release of Kubuntu 17.04, the latest update from the project which integrates an Ubuntu base system with the latest KDE Plasma desktop and applications: "Kubuntu 17.04 released. Code-named 'Zesty Zapus', Kubuntu 17.04 continues our proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. 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 4.10-based Linux kernel, KDE Frameworks 5.31, Plasma 5.9.4 and KDE Applications 16.12.3. The Kubuntu desktop has seen some exciting improvements, with newer versions of Qt, updates to major packages like Krita, Kdenlive, Firefox and LibreOffice, and stability improvements to the Plasma desktop environment."

The Xubuntu project, a community edition of Ubuntu featuring the Xfce desktop environment, has announced the release of Xubuntu 17.04. The new release features some applications and Xfce components which have been ported to GTK+ 3 and this release includes bug fixes for Mugshot along with a new mini-mode for the Parole media player. "Several Xfce panel plugins and applications have been ported to GTK+ 3, paving the way for improved theming and further development. Core Xfce libraries exo and libxfce4ui have also been updated with full GTK+ 3 support, the latter adding support for Glade development in Xubuntu with the installation of libxfce4ui-glade. The Greybird and Numix themes have also been refreshed with improved support for the toolkit. Camera functionality has been restored in Mugshot, Parole introduced a new mini mode and improvements for network streams, and a number of welcome fixes have made their way into Thunar and Ristretto. Simon Tatham’s Portable Puzzle Collection (sgt-puzzles), an addicting collection of logic games, has been included along with the new SGT Puzzles Collection."

Martin Wimpress has announced the launch of Ubuntu MATE 17.04. The new release, which features nine months of support, ships with MATE 1.18 as the default desktop environment. With this release, the distribution's MATE desktop has completed the transition from using GTK+ 2 libraries to GTK+ 3. "This is our favourite release of Ubuntu MATE so far and, we believe, a real return to form. Ubuntu MATE 16.10 was a transitional release, in every sense, and 17.04 concludes the upheaval of migrating to GTK+ 3. We’ve put a great deal of effort into refining Ubuntu MATE 17.04 in the following ways: the MATE team did an amazing job releasing MATE 1.18.0 which completes the transition to GTK+ 3, fixes countless bugs and introduces some much-needed new features and modernisations; Daniel Foré from elementary contributed new icons which deliver style and panache; Ikey Doherty from Solus created Brisk menu in collaboration with Ubuntu MATE; Dave from Linux & Other Stuff contributed a new dark theme called Ambiant-MATE Dark...."

Jeremy Bicha has announced the availability of Ubuntu GNOME 17.04. The new version of the distribution ships with version 3.24 of the GNOME desktop environment and will receive security updates for nine months. "The Ubuntu GNOME developers are proud to announce our latest non-LTS release 17.04. For the first time in Ubuntu GNOME's history, this release includes the latest stable release of GNOME 3.24. Although Ubuntu’s release schedule was originally centered around shipping the latest GNOME release, this had not been possible since GNOME 3.0 was released six years ago. Take a look at our release notes for a list of highlighted changes and improvements." The release announcement indicates this will probably be the final version of Ubuntu GNOME: "As announced last week by Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will include GNOME instead of Unity. Specifically, it will be GNOME (including GNOME Shell) with minimal Ubuntu customization. Next year, if you are using either Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS, you will be prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. As a result of this decision there will no longer be a separate GNOME flavor of Ubuntu." Download: ubuntu-gnome-17.04-desktop-amd64.iso (1,447MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist). Also available from OSDisc.

Adam Conrad has announced the release of Ubuntu 17.04. The latest release of Ubuntu features nine months of support and security updates. The new release includes version 4.10 of the Linux kernel as well as driverless printing to supported devices. Support for 32-bit PowerPC computers has been dropped and new installations will, by default, be set up using a swap file instead of a swap partition for added flexibility. "Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including a new 4.10-based kernel, and much more. Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK+ and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and stability improvements to Unity. Ubuntu Server 17.04 includes the Ocata release of OpenStack, alongside deployment and management tools that save DevOps teams time when deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public clouds, x86, ARM, or POWER servers, zSystem mainframes, or on developer laptops." Further information can be found in the project's release announcement and release notes.

This is the project's first stable release as an officially recognised Ubuntu flavour: "We are pleased to announce the release of the next version of our distribution - and the first as an official flavor of the Ubuntu family. Based on 16.04 and 16.10 budgie-remix experiences, feedback and suggestions we have received from our users, the new release comes with a lot of new features, fixes and optimizations: focused heavily on stability; more customisation options via budgie welcome; complete desktop look and feel change - Material design of Adapta or Vimix; startup wizard on first logon taking new users through the first logon procedures; browser ballot - we believe you should decide what your favorite browser should be; overhaul of our delivered application set - the best from the GNOME family as well as the fantastic Terminix terminal emulator; latest upstream budgie-desktop v10.2.9." See the release announcement and release notes for more information. Download: ubuntu-budgie-17.04-desktop-amd64.iso (1,550MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist). Also available from OSDisc.

The Ubuntu Kylin project, a member of the Ubuntu family developing a Linux distribution designed and optimised for users in China, has announced the release of version 17.04. In a surprise last-minute move (and as a result of the recent Ubuntu decision to scrap the Unity desktop), the Ubuntu Kylin developers have also discarded Unity and replaced it with a custom desktop called "UKUI" (based on MATE): "We are glad to announce the Release of Ubuntu Kylin 17.04 (code name 'Zesty Zapus'). In this release, the most noteworthy part is that we have launched a new desktop environment, UKUI, which provides a simpler and more enjoyable experience for browsing, searching and managing your computer. UKUI is a customized desktop based on MATE, redesigned with a brand-new start menu, control panel, desktop task bar, desktop theme and icons. Its main features include: a brand-new theme and icons; a quick start menu; easy-to-use control panel; extensible file manager. This release is based on 4.10 Linux kernel." Please consult the release announcement (in Chinese) and release notes (in English) for further information. Download: ubuntukylin-17.04-desktop-amd64.iso (1,638MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist).

The Ubuntu Studio team has announced the release of Ubuntu Studio 17.04. The new release of this Linux distribution for audio, video and graphic artists offers the same package base as Ubuntu 17.04 and includes nine months of security updates. According to the release announcement, there are a few small changes in this new version, including swapping the system-config-printer-gnome utility with system-config-printer and the Krita drawing program has been added to the default installation. The Darktable software has been dropped from the 32-bit installation media. "We are happy to announce the release of our latest version, Ubuntu Studio 17.04 Zesty Zapus. As a regular version, it will be supported for 9 months. Since it’s just out, you may experience some issues, so you might want to wait a bit before upgrading. Please see the release notes for a complete list of changes and known issues. Changes in this release: system-config-printer-gnome replaced with system-config-printer; added pm-utils; Krita has been added back; Darktable is removed from 32-bit ISO image due to lack of upstream support." A list of changes and significant package versions can be found in the project's release notes. Download: ubuntustudio-17.04-dvd-amd64.iso (2,986MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist).

Las derivadas de Ubuntu se destacan por el cuidado especial en el Escritorio y en el aspecto gráfico

Ubuntu es con creces la distribución Linux más conocida, y gracias a ella Linux se ha popularizado como nunca antes lo había hecho.

Aunque Ubuntu está basada en sus orígenes en Debian, muchas distribuciones han decidido tomar Ubuntu directamente como referencia con algunos retoques, que en muchos casos mejoran el original.

Ubuntu's_CD's derivate

A las conocidas Kubuntu, Xubuntu o Edubuntu se le han unido en los últimos tiempos desarrollos que están pensados para ciertas tareas específicas, como la gestión multimedia o el trabajo científico.

Te mostramos una lista de los principales sabores de Ubuntu.

Oficial y reconocidas.
Oficialmente, las versiones de Ubuntu creadas y mantenidas por Canonical y la comunidad Ubuntu son la propia Ubuntu en sus tres sabores principales: Escritorio, Netbook y Servidor.


Por otro lado, hay ciertas distribuciones basadas en Ubuntu reconocidas por la propia Canonical.

Es el caso de:
  • Edubuntu: enfocada a la educación.
  • Kubuntu: que utiliza el Escritorio KDE en vez del GNOME oficial.
  • Mythbuntu: enfocada a usarse como centro multimedia usando MythTV.
  • Ubuntu Studio: para la creación multimedia.
  • Xubuntu: que utiliza XFCE en lugar de GNOME.
  • Lubuntu: la incorporación más reciente, sustituye GNOME por LXDE.
  • Las más importantes.
  • Linux Mint: es la principal distro derivada de Ubuntu, que con el tiempo se ha convertido en su principal rival.
  • gNewSense: La particularidad de gNewSense es su apoyo de la Free Software Foundation, ya que utiliza únicamente componentes no propietarios.
  • Derivadas de origen hispano.
En un artículo anterior repasamos las distribuciones Linux más importantes desarrolladas en España y en Latinoamérica.

De ellas destacamos algunas que utilizan Ubuntu como base.
  • ComFusion: Es el resultado de unir Compiz Fusion con Ubuntu.
  • Guadalinex: Linux andaluz con el respaldo de la Junta de Andalucía.
  • LULA: Es el acrónimo de Linux para Universidades LAtinoamericanas.
  • MAX: La Comunidad de Madrid también tiene su derivado de Ubuntu.
  • MoLinux: Con el soporte de la Junta de Castilla La Mancha.
  • Trisquel: Linux con acento gallego.
  • Destacan por su aspecto.
Estas distribuciones Linux derivadas de Ubuntu destacan sobre las demás por el cuidado especial en el Escritorio y en el aspecto gráfico, dotándolo de complementos que mejoran el trabajo realizado por la comunidad Ubuntu.
A ello hay que añadir la gran cantidad de programas de los que carece Ubuntu por motivos de espacio, y que hacen a estos Linux únicos.
  • Darwin OS: La evolución de Ubuntu.
  • OpenGEU: Su Escritorio E17 transforma Ubuntu por completo.
  • Pinguy OS: Una mano de pintura que remodela el Escritorio de Ubuntu.
  • Shift Linux: Un toque oscuro a Ubuntu con programas nuevos.
  • Ylmf OS: Ubuntu disfrazado de Windows XP.
  • Zorin OS: Si te cuesta usar Ubuntu, esta distro te lo pone más fácil.
Para los más jóvenes
  • Qimo: Ubuntu simplificado para que lo utilicen los más pequeños.
  • Especializadas.
  • Caine: Este Linux italiano está especializado en investigación forense digital. Por ello viene surtido de aplicaciones como Guymager, DC3DD, Autopsy, Foremost, Scalpel, Ophcrack y Fundl.
  • CrunchBang: El caso de CrunchBang es el de reaprovechar equipos antiguos o con poca memoria. CrunchBang utiliza el entorno de Escritorio Openbox y aplicaciones menos exigentes a nivel de consumo de recursos.
  • eAR OS: Con eAR OS podrás convertir tu PC en un centro multimedia, al estilo de XBMC o Mythbuntu, y reproducir vídeos, canciones e imágenes desde el televisor.
  • LocuLinux: La distro más peculiar que hemos encontrado es LocuLinux, pensada para locutorios y cibercafés. Se puede instalar como cliente o servidor. Su Escritorio es bastante similar a Windows, para clientes que desconozcan Linux.
  • Tango Studio: Al principio del artículo hemos hablado de Ubuntu Studio, un Linux para la creación multimedia. De Ubuntu Studio surge Tango Studio, especializada únicamente en la producción y edición de audio.

Ya está disponible Ubuntu 15.10 “Wily Werewolf”.

Ayer, Canonical publicó la versión 15.10 de Ubuntu, una de las distribuciones de Linux más populares (y que sirve de base para otras que también tienen gran cantidad de seguidores, como Linux Mint).

La versión 15.10 se llama Wily Werewolf e incluye el kernel de Linux 4.2 y otras novedades de software (incluyendo un soporte mejorado para los chips gráficos de AMD), aunque por su cadencia bianual no hay demasiados cambios respecto de la versión liberada en abril último. También se actualizó el resto de las versiones ( Ubuntu MATE, xubuntu, kubuntu, etcétera).
