1Ubuntu 18.10 Brings Cosmic Cuttlefish to the Linux Desktop
Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind the Ubuntu Linux distribution, is planning to release the latest milestone update, Ubuntu 18.10, on Oct. 18. The release, which is also known as the Cosmic Cuttlefish, is a standard release and will only be supported for nine months. In contrast, Ubuntu 18.04, which was released on April 26, is a Long Term Support (LTS) release, receiving support for five years. Among the things that desktop users will quickly notice in Ubuntu 18.10 is the new Yaru theme, which provides a new look and feel on top of a GNOME 3.30 desktop environment. The Snaps system for software packaging has also been further integrated, providing users with more application options. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the Ubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish Linux release.
