Ubuntu 18.10 get its moniker
Are you ready to get to grips with Cosmic Cuttlefish?
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.
