Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo is believed to be released on April 18, 2019. It comes with more Yaru icons for third-party apps.
According to a new Ubuntu version is in front of a new Ubuntu version. Last fall, Canonical Ubuntu had made 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish available for download. With Gnome 3.30 and kernel 4.18. But as with the previous Ubuntu updates, the creators soon betrayed the name of the next Ubuntu version 19.04. Unlike Ubuntu 18.10 or 18.04, however, Canonical chief executive Mark Shuttleworth did not publish the name on his blog. But this time the name was on the launchpad of the new Ubuntu version.
1.Ubuntu 19.04 is called Disco Dingo
Ubuntu 19.04 is obviously called “Disco Dingo.” Dingo is a free-living dog found mainly in Australia. And “Disco” probably refers to the dance establishment of the same name discotheque, as the website omgubuntu, which specializes in Linux topics, explains. Disco may also mean the corresponding style of pop music. Canonical, on the other hand, would hardly have thought of the famous German music programme with Ilya Richter.
The composition of the code name for Ubuntu 19.04 differs somewhat from the usual scheme that Itsfoss explains here. Normally, a Ubuntu codename is made up of an adjective and a noun (for an endangered species or mythical being), both of which start with the same letter, as omgubuntu points out. But this time there are two nouns.
2. support period
Canonical will provide nine months of updates for Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo. So just as long as for Ubuntu 18.10. After that, you’ll need to upgrade to a new Ubuntu version to continue receiving updates. So Ubuntu 19.04 will not be an LTS version.
If you value a longer support period, you should install Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. Canonical will provide updates for this until April 2023.
3. release date
Unless there are any issues associated with development, Canonical will make Ubuntu 19.04 available for download in April 2019, presumably on April 18, 2019. As of February 21, 2019, Canonical is unlikely to add any new features to Ubuntu 19.04, with the surface unlikely to undergo any further changes as of March 14, 2019, as omgubuntu suspects. Kernel Freeze would then be on April 1, 2019.
Alpha versions for testing will not release Canonical, with the first beta expected on March 28.
An overview of the versions of Ubuntu released so far and their support end can be found here.
4.1 Surface: Omgubuntu speculates that Ubuntu 19.04 comes with Gnome 3.32 as the surface. Then Ubuntu 19.04 is also likely to use the new login screen from Gnome 3.32. The standard Yaru theme, presented with Ubuntu 18.10, will be expanded to include icons for additional third-party applications, making it more of a cast, as It’s foss reports.
4.2 kernel: Ubuntu 19.04 should be equipped with kernel 5.0.
4.3 Android integration: After using the Android integration via GSConnect for Ubuntu 18.10, Canonical postponed this feature, it could be that GSConnect enters Ubuntu 19.04.
Gsconnect is the implementation of KDE Connect for Gnome. The extension has been programmed to do so, and you don’t need to install any of the KDE or Qt libraries to use Gsconnect. Gsconnect integrates with the Gnome Shell, but also with the file manager Nautilus as well as the browsers Firefox and Chrome.
Through Gsconnect, the Ubuntu PC and an Android smartphone can communicate directly with each other. The only requirement: You need to install the free Android app KDE Connect on your smartphone. So you can wirelessly slide files between the android and the Ubuntu calculator and browse the smartphone’s file directory, read Whatsapp messages and other notifications on the Ubuntu desktop. Get information about the android on the PC (battery charge level, file manager, localization of the android via alarm sound) and view the device settings of the android on the computer. You can also control the playing of the music from the android from the computer.
4.4 Other improvements: Perhaps Canonical is also missing out on a new interface for its software center. Chromium Browser and gaming client Steam could also appear as Snap apps in the Snap Store. Snap is a new container format from Canonical that brings its own libraries. The Snaps, which was first introduced with Ubuntu 16.10, has expanded Canonical more and more. The well-known apt, however, is not replaced by Snap, but supplemented.
Further improvements could affect the Gnome watch and mute painting features. And, of course, as usual, there will be improvements in performance, boot speed and power saving management.
