Before the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I was testing the bugs and reporting all sorts of bugs. It’s the best way for developers to know the bugs in their software and improve it. Of course, I did it to test what would be the next version of Ubuntu and share it with all of you. If you want to do what I did at the time, Canonical asks users for help to try the new version of Ubuntu Software which is about to arrive.
Most of the changes have to do with GNOME Software version 3.20.2, as the version currently present in Ubuntu is what is already known as Ubuntu Software 3.20.1. The new version will include many bug fixes, Improvements and modifications of connectors, as well as will correct all the possible errors that go arising during his development and report of errors.
The next version of what was once the Ubuntu Software Center also includes improvements to the score calculation, Snap apps now include support for mime type and will allow us to launch Snap apps from your store page by clicking the “launch” button.
Ubuntu Software 3.20.2 will include bug fixes
If you want to try the next version of Ubuntu Software, you must add it THIS REPOSITORY. Of course, it is said that the final version will be uploaded to the default repositories of Ubuntu as soon as its development is complete, which may arrive next week or, in the worst case, within two weeks.
If we take into account the problems we have been suffering before with the Ubuntu Software Center and now with GNOME / Ubuntu Software, our recommendation is that we do not make guinea pigs and we will patiently wait for Ubuntu Software 3.20.2 to be released officially. Of course, if you decide to take the plunge, feel free to leave your experience in the comments.
