All new Ubuntu 17.10 released
With the new release of Ubuntu, there is some good news for GNOME lovers. After a long time, Ubuntu has come up with some major changes. The new release has GNOME as the default desktop environment instead of Unity.
Ubuntu 17.10 comes with the newest software enhancements and nine months of security and maintenance updates. It is based on the Linux Kernel release series 4.13. It includes support for the new IBM z14 mainframe CPACF instructions and new
KVM features. 32-bit installer images are no longer provided for Ubuntu Desktop.
Apart from this, GDM has replaced LightDM as the default display manager. The login screen now uses virtual terminal 1 instead of virtual terminal 7. Window control buttons are back on the right for the first time since 2010. Apps provided by GNOME have been updated to 3.26. Driverless printing support is now available for IPP Everywhere, Apple AirPrint and Wi-Fi Direct. LibreOffice has been updated to 5.4 and Python 2 is no longer installed by default. Python 3 has been updated to 3.6.
Ubuntu 17.10 will be supported for nine months until July 2018. If you need long term support, it is recommended you use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS instead.
