Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish Now Available, With GNOME 42, Linux 5.15, and New Customization Options

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS now available

Well, it's already here. If we were to say that this is the best version of Ubuntu to date, we would be saying the same thing that all developers (and even artists) say after a new release. No, we're not going to say that because we don't work at Canonical and we remember what it was like years ago, but we are going to say that Ubuntu LTS 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish is a major release, the biggest in years.

Two years ago, with the release of Focal Fossa, new features typical of an LTS version were introduced, but in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, with the jam jellyfish, they have gone several steps further. To begin with, because they have made the leap from GNOME 40 to GNOME 42, so all the new features of a year have been introduced on the desktop. In addition, Canonical has been ahead of GNOME in some things, such as the ability to change the accent color, and everything looks very good, as you can see in the following list of new features.

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS highlights

  • Supported for 5 years, until April 2027.
  • Linux 5.15 LTS.
  • New wallpapers, logical.
  • GNOME 42. Many of the most interesting new features come in here:
    • New version of libadwaita and GTK4.
    • New screenshot tool, but the text editor is still Gedit, not the new GNOME one.
    • Better color settings, with an improved dark theme and the ability to choose the accent color.
  • New operating system loading screen, and GDM in grey.
  • Improved support for Raspberry Pi thanks to the use of zswap.
  • New GUI tool for fwupd.
  • PHP 8.1.
  • Open SSL 3.0.
  • Ruby 3.0.
  • Golang 1.8.
  • Python 3.10.
  • Grub 2.06
  • GCC 11.
  • Table 22.
  • Updated main applications, among which will be the latest from Firefox, such as snap in this case, LibreOffice and PulseAudio, among others.

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS is now available for download from this link, soon on the official website. To install it from the same operating system, you will soon be able to open a terminal and type:

Port
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo do-release-upgrade

Let's enjoy it!
