Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) got released today. I’m already using it for a week on my desktop and have to say it’s an awesome version. Gnome 3.36 is really smooth and the new features (like dark mode) are really pleasant. Ubuntu is in my eyes the Linux distribution that “just works”.
Some other new features:
- Linux Kernel version 5.4 (with built-in support for Wireguard VPN)
- Gnome 3.36 with a refreshed Yaru theme
- Python 3 by default
It’s a LTS version, so it will also get updates and security fixes for the next 5 years (but I’ll probably upgrade to each new version though).
