Are you ready to get to grips with Cos­mic Cut­tle­fish?

Linux Format - - Newsdesk -

With work start­ing on the next long-term sup­port ver­sion of Ubuntu (20.04 LTS), Canon­i­cal CEO Mark Shut­tle­worth has an­nounced that it will “kick off that jour­ney with the Cos­mic Cut­tle­fish, soon to be known as Ubuntu 18.10.” Ac­cord­ing to Mark’s blog post (which can be read at http://bit.ly/cos­mic-cut), the fo­cus of 18.10, along with other re­leases in the run up to 20.04, will be on se­cu­rity. Ubuntu runs on such a di­verse range of de­vices, from desktop PCs, to servers and em­bed­ded com­put­ers, and Mark points out that there’s one thing that ev­ery com­mu­nity wants, no mat­ter what de­vice they use: se­cu­rity. With re­cent high-pro­file se­cu­rity lapses like Melt­down and Spec­tre, it’s good to see Canon­i­cal take this so se­ri­ously. How­ever, the blog post doesn’t go into specifics, but we’ll hope­fully soon find out more about the fea­tures that are com­ing to Ubuntu 18.10 and be­yond.
