Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (codename: Focal Fossa) appears today
Since Ubuntu releases an LTS version only every two years, I thought that this event deserves its own thread: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (codename: Focal Fossa) will be released into the wild today.
As usual, both the Server version and the canonical Desktop version (with GNOME) will receive five years of support, whereas the other Desktop derivatives (Kubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, etc.) will receive three years of support. The initial Linux kernel version is 5.4.0, but later minor releases will probably come with an updated kernel as an option.
The install media for 20.04 aren't yet officially visible/available, but they should become visible/available over the next several hours.
What can I say: a small joy in the time of coronavirus and lockdowns.
