Ubuntu 22.04 LTS out
At the heart of Ubuntu 22.04 is the (relatively recent) GNOME 42 release, albeit not entirely. Many apps remain in their GNOME 41 versions to avoid landing libadwaita apps in LTS. As for LTS upgrades, the bump into the GNOME 42 is pretty huge.
The Ubuntu desktop now uses a landscape workspace switcher (plus new multitasking settings to customize it); Landscape app launcher (its shortcuts can be rearranged). There are also new touchpad gestures for entering and launching the app launcher and workspace switcher when using the (now default) Wayland session.
A bunch of new file manager features are also included, such as a scrollable path bar, path bar auto-completion, and support for password protection
.zipCreate, extract, and more time-accurate file transfers.
Ubuntu is also gaining a new screenshot experience (which can take screen recordings as well); Makes it easy to disable animations (via accessibility settings); And
forcesFirefox makes Snap the default for everyone, across every flavor.
Visually, the distro has a lighter and brighter look with distinct UI colors, true dark mode, a new set of wallpapers, and a brand new Ubuntu logo used throughout the system. The GNOME Shell user interface is also much simpler in this version.
Desktop icons now appear in the lower left by default, and you’ll find a few more options to customize how the Ubuntu Dock looks and works in Settings > Appearance Section. App pages in . format Ubuntu software Also get a renewal.
Now you can change the power mode from the status menu (performance, battery saver, balanced); see calendar events in the clock applet; Use touchpad gestures to enter and exit the workspace switcher and app launcher.
