Canonical has announced the official release of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS codenamed Jammy Jellyfish.
It is worth noting that this is an LTS release, that is, a system tailored for long-term use with long-term maintenance from developers. This option is usually chosen by large corporations and those who prefer stable operation of the OS instead of new chips.
Ubuntu 22.04 now runs on the updated Gnome desktop. The OS has minor visual changes, such as additional color schemes on individual controls or a full dark theme that switches automatically. Also from the new Gnome in Ubuntu 22.04, an updated utility for creating screenshots also migrated.
It is also worth noting separately the many changes “under the hood” that will help extend the life of laptops based on Ubuntu and improve OS compatibility with new hardware.
All variations of the system also received a major update. Kubuntu now uses the KDT Plasma 5.24 desktop, and Xubuntu has the latest XFCE version 4.16 installed by default.
