It’s a shame, but it hasn’t come through the hairs. Five days after the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus and all its official flavors, David Mohammed had the pleasure of announcing the official release of Budgie-Remix 16.04. And what has not arrived in time? Well, everything seems to indicate that Budgie-Remix will be said Ubuntu Budgie from version 16.10, so it has not been part of the April release and will not be a Long Term Support (LTS) version until next time, which will be version 18.04 which will be released on April 2018.
Budgie-Remix or Ubuntu Budgie, as you prefer, has been in development for several months and is now available for download and installation. is based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and uses the Solus Project’s Budgie graphical environment. But that it is based on an LTS version does not make it automatically, so its support will be 18 months and not 3 years of Ubuntu flavors or 5 years of support for patches and updates to the standard version .
Ubuntu Budgie will be a reality in “Yakkety Yak”
Now that the release of Ubuntu Budgie has become official, the developer team is ready preparing the next version, A 16.04.1 version that will be released within approximately three months. Of course, the next version of Ubuntu Budgie will be based on Ubuntu 16.04.1, an update that will be released on the same dates.
But it looks like the current Budgie-Remix team is going to work tirelessly in the coming months because, like the Ubuntu developers, they already have also started working for version 16.10 Yakkety Yak, Which will be his official arrival on the Ubuntu team. The first Alpha version will be released in July. Although we all take it for granted, we’ll still have to wait to see if it finally becomes Ubuntu Budgie, and if it does, the release of Ubuntu Budgie 16.10 is scheduled for October 20th.
