Ubuntu Unity 23.10, a transition version that remains in Unity 7.7 while the jump to UnitiX is prepared

Unity 23.10

One of the new features that has arrived with Ubuntu Unity 23.10 has nothing to do with Unity 23.10. From another point of view it does, because although it is not visible in the operating system, it is the website where we can download it. After a few minutes in which it failed and showed the 404 error in GitLab, the page is now accessible, and it does not look anything like the previous one.

But what is really interesting on a day like today are the releases, and you can now download Ubuntu Unity 23.10 by different means. Between his new arrivals There is not much to highlight, since, as they tell us, it remains in Unity 7.7. The main objective of this version has been to move from Nux to UnityX, so we could say that we are facing a transitional release.

Ubuntu Unity 23.10 Highlights

Al Linux 6.5 and 9 month support, until July 2024, which it shares with the rest of the Mantic Minotaur family, the highlight has been knowing the plans for the future of the version that uses the desktop that Canonical abandoned. Nux, which is what they use now, does not allow you to support Wayland without depending on Xwayland, and that is one of the reasons they want to stop using it. They have also spent time adding support for CUPS 2.0 in Unity and it will definitely arrive in Ubuntu 24.04.

Even more interesting is that There is an Ubuntu Unity variant with Lomiri on the way. They expected to launch it today, but they have encountered some bugs that have not allowed them to do so. They say it will be available in a few days, and it will be like using Ubuntu Touch but with all the possibilities of Ubuntu. We'll see what it turns out to be. I want to see it.

Among the packages shared with the rest of the flavors, we have:

  • Table 23.2.
  • Libre Office
  • Thunderbird 115.2.3.
  • Firefox 118.
  • GCC 13.2.0.
  • binutils 2.41.
  • glibc 2.38.
  • GNU Debugger 14.0.50..
