Ubuntu 14.10 Released
Codenamed "Utopic Unicorn", 14.10 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 3.16-based kernel, a new AppArmor with fine-grained socket control,
Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of
GTK and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and
improvements to Unity, including improved High-DPI display support.
Ubuntu Server 14.10 includes the Juno release of OpenStack, alongside
deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when
deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public
clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops. Several key server
technologies, from MAAS to Ceph, have been updated to new upstream
versions with a variety of new features.
The newest Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, and
Ubuntu Studio are also being released today. More details can be found
