New features in 22.10

Updated Packages

Linux kernel 

Ubuntu 22.10 is shipped with the new 5.19 Linux kernel that brings the following (most relevant) features (in addition to many other new features, new drivers, improvements and fixes):

  • The new futex_waitv() syscall that can speed up games by letting them wait for multiple futexes with a single system call.
  • Support in the task scheduler for CPU clusters that share L2/L3 cache (spreading tasks between clusters will bring more memory bandwidth and decrease cache contention).
  • Support for Intel® AMX (Advanced Matrix Extensions) instructions.
  • CO-RE support that makes compiled BPF programs more portable.
  • A faster random number generator (entropy extractor switched from SHA1 to BLAKE2s).
  • Support for proactive reclaim in memory control groups.
  • Support for Intel® Trust Domain Extensions (TDX).

systemd v251.4

The init system was updated to systemd v251.4.

Toolchain Upgrades 

debuginfod support

Ubuntu now automatically requests debug symbols from the service when GDB (or any other debuginfo-consuming application) is used.

Security Improvements 

  • AppArmor gained support for restricting access to unprivileged user namespaces. This allows a system administrator to configure their system so that only applications and services which are confined by an appropriate AppArmor profile can use this feature.

Base System

  • Netplan v0.105 50 gained support for VXLAN, VRF and InfiniBand devices
