Development
Ubuntu

The Ubuntu devs are not wasting any time and they have already started to build the next version of the distribution, although it will be a while until an ISO imagine is made available. Even then, it will most likely be something very similar to Ubuntu 14.10, which was released only yesterday, October 23.

This is actually a normal day at the office for Canonical. Traditionally, the development for the next Ubuntu version starts the very next day, so it's not something special. Still, it's interesting to see how Canonical is working on its distro and how it is able to launch an operating system precisely every six months.

Ubuntu GNOME 14.10 Released and Based on GNOME 3.12 – Screenshot Tour

Filed under
GNOME
Ubuntu

The GNOME flavor of Ubuntu is a newer one, although the devs have already made a few releases. It uses the stock GNOME stack and it’s had great success until now, despite the fact that it doesn't pack the latest version of the desktop environment. The developer has explained more than once why that is happening, but the good news is that people will be able to install GNOME 3.14 packages nonetheless.

The Ubuntu GNOME developers have more features to show than the Ubuntu base used, but that was to be expected, especially after the GNOME stack has been updated from the 3.10 branch to 3.12.
