The wait is over. Canonical has released Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), the sixth version Long Term Support system that they have been developing since Ubuntu saw the light about 12 years ago. This version will also be the first of the long-awaited convergence, Where a phone can become a desktop computer if we connect a mouse and a Bluetooth keyboard, which can be completed by reflecting on a screen (mirroring) what we see on our phone or tablet.
But this new version will not stay here, much less. As I just posted in another post (and the culprit that the release caught me offside) where you can see in more detail some of the new features that includes the Xenial Xerus version of Ubuntu, is also included support for ZFS and CephFS, Two volume managers that will improve system performance. In the case of ZFS, the system includes continuous integrity checking against corrupt data, automatic file repair, and data compression. On the other hand, the CephFS system is a distributed file system that provides an ideal platform for large-scale enterprise storage for open-ended cluster computing.
We already have it: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is here!
Another important novelty will be the snaps, Which will allow developers, among other things, to deliver more secure, stable applications in less time. Users will also benefit from being able to use more up-to-date applications, which I miss right now and which is why I usually install a mirror that I would not like to install.
Among the news, there is one that I find very interesting: the possibility of move the launcher to the bottom, Which used the standard version of Ubuntu for a long time (although I eventually switched to Ubuntu MAT). Below are several links to the new version that may be of interest to you.
