About Ubuntu

Codenamed "Zesty Zapus", Ubuntu 17.04 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including a new 4.10-based kernel, and much more.

Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and stability improvements to Unity.

Support lifespan

Ubuntu 17.04 LTS will be supported for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Core, and Ubuntu Kylin. All other flavours will be supported for 3 years.

New features in 17.04 LTS

32-bit PowerPC Support Dropped

  • The powerpc port is not included in the 17.04 release. See announcement for details.

  • ppc64el support support continues as previously.

Networking

  • The default DNS resolver is now systemd-resolved.

Swap

  • For new installs, a swap file will be used instead of a swap partition.

 

Updated Packages

Linux kernel 4.10

Ubuntu 17.04 is based on the Linux release series 4.10.

 

Driverless Printing

We now support printers which allow printing without printer-specific drivers. These printers are IPP Everywhere and Apple AirPrint printers, but also some PDF, Postscript, and PCL printers work. This way connecting a printer gets as easy as connecting a USB stick.

  • The printers can get connected via network or USB.
  • The setup of IPP Everywhere and Apple Airprint printers should occur fully automatically. You only need to plug in your USB printer or connect your network printer to the local network.
  • If you do not want to set up IPP network printers automatically edit /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf to have a line "CreateIPPPrinterQueues No", and if you also want suitable PDF, Postscript, or PCL printers automatically set up have a line "CreateIPPPrinterQueues All". Reboot after modifying /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf.
  • For manual setup of driverless network printers with system-config-printer, choose the printer under the discovered network printers and then "IPP network printer via DNS-SD", or "Driverless IPP" in the "Connections" list (In the "Select Device" step). In the CUPS web interface look for "driverless" in the discovered network printers entries and also for "driverless" in the make/model/driver choice.

  • On driverless USB printers (IPP-over-USB) you find the web administration interface under http://localhost:60000/ (if more than one printer is connected, the other ones are on port 60001, 60002, ...). It is highly recommended to access the interface with Firefox.

  • If you have a WiFi printer which does not allow to configure the WiFi access by its front panel, try to connect it via USB. If it is an IPP-over-USB printer you can configure it by its web interface now and then disconnect USB and use WiFi.

  • If you have an HP multi-function device with scanner, prefer using it with the HPLIP driver as you were used to. When using in driverless mode you will not be able to scan. system-config-printer takes automatically care of this.
  • Driverless printing is supported on both Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server.

 

Ubuntu Desktop

  • LibreOffice has been updated to 5.3.

  • Apps provided by GNOME have been updated to 3.24. Exceptions are the Nautilus file manager (3.20), Terminal (3.20), Evolution (3.22), and Software (3.22).

  • The Calendar app now has a Week view.

  • gconf is no longer installed by default since it has long been superseded by gsettings. Note that statistics and preferences for the Aisleriot card games will be reset when upgrading to 17.04.

  • Unity 8 is available as an alternative session

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.
