The most interesting novelty that came with Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak is the possibility of using the graphical environment Unity 8. Or, well, I think it would have been like this if it had worked 100% on all devices. What is certain is that the time will come when the convergence of Ubuntu will be a reality and all devices that use the graphical environment developed by Canonical will use an environment with the next version of Unity.
The user Kugi Javacookies has uploaded a video to YouTube in which, according to him, shows a quick refresher on what's to come in Unity 8. Kugi Javacookies also thinks it could be released sooner rather than later. The downside is that it will most likely arrive soon on devices that use Ubuntu Touch, such as the Aquarius M10 Ubuntu Edition, but users who want to test it on a computer will still have to wait.
What's to come in Unity 8
It's amazing to really follow projects down to the smallest details. Launchpad codes, real bileto projects, and queued silos for QA testing in Trello. Really cool.
According to information published on Launchpad, the OTA-14 Ubuntu Touch will fix 28 bugs. There is no scheduled release date yet, but it is expected to hit all supported devices sometime in November. On the other hand, we cannot rule out the possibility that some of what Kugi Javacookies shows us in his video does not reach the final version that will be released next month.
Personally, the more I see of Unity 8, the more I want to try it, which is why I was so disappointed with the release on October 13th. Now I just hope it works all next April, at which time it will be released Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus. We leave you with the video.
