New features in 18.10

 

Updated Packages

 OpenSSL 1.1.1

OpenSSL, the secure communication library using TLS protocol, is upgraded to 1.1.1 long-term support series. It supports for the recently approved TLSv1.3 standard. Multiple client and server applications have been enabled to use TLSv1.3 by default in Ubuntu 18.10 with many more to come in the next release. The older 1.0.2 series OpenSSL is still available, however, it is expected to be removed from the next Ubuntu release.

The Ubuntu project is currently evaluating replacing OpenSSL 1.1.0 with backported OpenSSL 1.1.1 in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

 Linux kernel

Ubuntu 18.10 is based on the Linux release series 4.18. It includes support for AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics processor, complete support for the Raspberry Pi 3B and the 3B+, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, many USB 3.2 and Type-C improvements, Intel Cannonlake graphics, significant power-savings improvements, P-State driver support for Skylake X servers, POWER memory protection keys support, KVM support for AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization, enablement of Shared Memory Communications remote and direct (SMC-R/D), Open for Business (OFB), and zcrypt on IBM Z among with many other improvements since the v4.15 kernel shipped in 18.04 LTS.

Toolchain Upgrades

Ubuntu 18.10 comes with refreshed state of the art toolchain including new upstream releases of glibc 2.28, OpenJDK 11, boost 1.67, rustc 1.28, and updated GCC 8.2, python 3.6.7 as default, python 3.7.1 as supported, ruby 2.5.1, php 7.2.10, perl 5.26.2, golang 1.10.4.

Ubuntu Desktop

 

Desktop Updates

18.10 ships with the latest GNOME desktop 3.30. This brings performance improvements and new features.

  • GNOME Disks now supports VeraCrypt

  • Settings includes a panel to manage Thunderbolt devices and shows those panels only where the relevant hardware is detected.
  • More shell components are cached in GPU RAM to reduce load and increase FPS count
  • Desktop zoom is now a lot smoother
  • Smoothing of window previews is now dependant on CPU/GPU availability so that busy applications don't impact the whole system when window previews are visible
  • Added the option to automatically submit error reports to the error reporting dialog window
  • Fingerprint libraries promoted to main to allow unlocking with fingerprints
  • Added snap support to XDG Portals and landed support in Ubuntu
  • The latest version of GS Connect is now packaged in the archive and easily installed

The latest releases of Firefox (63.0) and LibreOffice (6.1.2) are available and installed by default.

 

YARU Theme Updates

Yaru theme, the bold, the frivolous, yet distinctly Ubuntu saw further improvements and touchups. Integrates beautifully with GNOME v3.20 Desktop and improves usability with its careful use of semantic colors.

Looks great on the latest hardware
