Ubuntu 16.04 is the next version of Ubuntu and also the next LTS version, which indicates for many that it will be an almost new version and very stable, which has been the tradition. However, Ubuntu 16.04 is about to break the tradition. In this case the next LTS version will have many new features that will attract the attention of its users, especially because some new features have been requested by Ubuntu users for some time.
The big news of Ubuntu 16.04 will be the possibility of be able to move the Unity bar in other parts of the desktop, this will allow us to move it to the bottom and use it as a dock. This change has almost become a historic debt that some would say.
The Plymouth will also be upgraded, for the first time in several years. the Plymouth is the home screen we see for several seconds when we turn on our system. The Ubuntu Software Center will disappear from the distribution giving way to Software for Gnome and the click compatibility and snappy packages. This will expand the possibility of distribution software but some warn that they will make it more vulnerable if any.
As for software, Brasero and Empathy will disappear but Gnome Calendar will try to keep. Perhaps Ubuntu 16.04 is the first version to release this popular software (Brasero) that accompanied Ubuntu in almost all versions and flavors. It will also install click unlock, something tedious that Windows 10 has and it seems that Canonical has wanted to implement in its distribution. Privacy is another point that we have already talked about and that does not seem to please the main detractors, in the GNU Foundation.
The ZFS file system and firmware update will be other new points of Ubuntu 16.04 but are features that are not clear that may appear in this version due to its premature development but probably later this year appear in Ubuntu .
Conclusions on Ubuntu 16.04
These are some news that we have confirmed but there will be one more thing that certifies in some way that Ubuntu 16.04 will not be an LTS version but quite the opposite, a change consistent with the distribution of Canonical.
