Sorry for the delay on this one – it’s been a… Busy weekend for me personally, so I’m only just now catching up with most of the news from the past few days.
Codenamed “Zesty Zapus”, Ubuntu 17.04 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including a new 4.10-based kernel, and much more.
Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and stability improvements to Unity.
This is possibly the last release to feature Unity, which makes it oddly notable. Interesting, too, how that lines up with the Z name.
