Ubuntu 19.04 is Named ‘Disco Dingo’

omgubuntu.co.uk: Ubuntu 19.04 is Named ‘Disco Dingo’. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/10/ubuntu-19-04-name-revealedOMG! Ubuntu!
The name of Ubuntu 19.04 has been revealed — and it’s definitely a distinctive decision!As listed on Launchpad, the home of Ubuntu development, the Ubuntu 19.04 name is logged as “Disco Dingo”.Ubuntu 19.04 will be the next stable Ubuntu release and come backed by 9 months of updates. It’s due for release in April 2019.Thus far there’s no alliteratively littered blogpost from Ubuntu’s space-faring founder Mark Shuttleworth, the sort that would cement the new name within our collective consciousness, but in many ways the name speaks for itself…What’s in a name?The codename of each Ubuntu release is traditionally made up of an adjective (a descriptive word) and an animal, both beginning with the same letter.But that’s only partly true this time.The word Disco is actually both a noun and a verb rather than adjective. A disco is a type of club or party at which p…

The developers are still working on the theme and there may be more changes and style updates. As of Late July 2018, Communitheme is known by its new name – Yaru.

GNOME 3.30 The newest version of GNOME, 3.30, is scheduled for release this September, which means it’s likely that Ubuntu 18.10 will use the newest version of GNOME, though this still hasn’t been confirmed.

A first look at Ubuntu 18.04 LTS desktop - Ubuntu's long-term support desktop is a welcome refresh.

Last month, Canonical released Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (codenamed "Bionic Beaver"), the latest long-term support version of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. Ars is working on a full review of the release, but I wanted to share some first impressions of the desktop, which is a major advance over the last LTS version.

Canonical made a bit of a U-turn in its interface plans while developing the last interim release of Ubuntu (17.10, codenamed "Artful Aardvark")—dropping development of its homegrown Unity interface and application launcher (as well as development of an Ubuntu phone), saying goodbye to the Ambiance interface theme of old and embracing the GNOME 3.28 desktop instead. Also significant is the integration of Snapcraft's "snap" format—a universal containerized installer format for packaged applications on all Linux platforms—into Ubuntu's application store.

Ubuntu had settled on the Wayland display server for 17.10 as a default because Canonical wan…
