Version 17.10 Release Date: October 19, 2017 (Release Notes)

Starting with 17.10 there is no longer a 32 bit release for the desktop version of Ubuntu.

NOTE: This distro comes on DVD. You will receive 64 bit version. Please ensure that your system will read from a 16x DVD before ordering.

About Ubuntu

In April 2018, the next long-term support (LTS) release of Ubuntu will come with GNOME Shell as default. Ubuntu 17.10 is the first release to include the new shell, so it’s a great way to preview the future of Ubuntu.

Support lifespan

Ubuntu 17.10 will be supported for 9 months until July 2018. If you need Long Term Support, it is recommended you use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS instead.

New features in 17.10

  • 32-bit installer images are no longer provided for Ubuntu Desktop.

  • The Ubuntu Desktop now uses GNOME instead of Unity.

  • On supported systems, Wayland is now the default display server. The older display server is still available: just choose Ubuntu on Xorg from the cog on the log in screen.

  • 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. For more details about GNOME 3.26, see their Release Notes.

  • Driverless printing support is now available for IPP EverywhereApple AirPrintWi-Fi Direct, and Mopria devices. Follow the instructions from 17.04.

  • Printer configuration is now done in the Settings app: Choose Devices and then Printers. The tool uses the same algorithms for identifying printers and choosing drivers as the formerly used system-config-printer, and makes full use of driverless printing to support as many printers as possible. Note that some options, like printer sharing, are missing. To reach them, click the Additional Printer Settings… button at the end of the list of available print queues and you get good old system-config-printer.

  • The Amazon app now loads in the default web browser.

  • The default on screen keyboard is GNOME's Caribou instead of Onboard.

  • Calendar now supports recurring events.

  • LibreOffice has been updated to 5.4.

  • Python 2 is no longer installed by default. Python 3 has been updated to 3.6.

  • The Rhythmbox music player now uses the alternate user interface created by Ubuntu Budgie developer David Mohamed.

  • The Settings app has been redesigned.

  • Simple Scan has a new workflow and design and is now part of core GNOME.

  • System Log has been replaced by Logs, an app to view logs from the systemd journal.

  • The Ubuntu GNOME flavor has been discontinued. If you are using Ubuntu GNOME, you will be upgraded to Ubuntu. Choose the Ubuntu session from the cog on the login screen if you would like the default Ubuntu experience.

  • Install gnome-session and choose GNOME from the cog on the login screen if you would like to try a more upstream version of GNOME. If you'd like to also install more core apps, install the vanilla-gnome-desktop metapackage.

Open source

Ubuntu has always been free to download, use and share. We believe in the power of open source software; Ubuntu could not exist without its worldwide community of voluntary developers.

Secure

With a built-in firewall and virus protection software, Ubuntu is one of the most secure operating systems around. And the Long Term Support releases give you five years of security patches and updates.

Accessible

Computing is for everyone regardless of nationality, gender or disability. Ubuntu is fully translated into over 40 languages and includes essential assistive technologies.

Looks great on the latest hardware

Ubuntu is designed to work beautifully on the latest laptops, desktops and touch screen devices, it looks incredible on high resolution screens — and with touch screen enhancements and interface refinements including individual menu bars in each application window, it’s now even easier to use.
