Focusing on open source architecture deployment, developer desktops, the Internet of Things, and the use of edge deployment scenarios in the cloud, Canonical today officially released Ubuntu 19.04 “Disco Dingo.” It’s worth noting that Ubuntu 19.04 is not a long-term supported version, so its life cycle is only 9 months.
“The open-source-first on Ubuntu movement in telco, finance, and media has spread to other sectors. From the public cloud to the private data center to the edge appliance or cluster, open source has become the reference for efficiency and innovation. Ubuntu 19.04 includes the leading projects to underpin that transition, and the developer tooling to accelerate the applications for those domains.”
“Ubuntu 19.04 introduces GNOME 3.32 with higher frame rates, smoother startup animations, quicker icon load times and reduced CPU+GPU load. Fractional scaling for HiDPI screens is now available in X-org and Wayland. Installing Ubuntu on VMWare will automatically install open-vm-tools for bi-directional clipboard, easy sharing of files and graceful power state management,” says Canonical.
