Ubuntu Announced 19.04 Beta Version 


The Ubuntu team announces the beta pre-release of the Ubuntu 19.04 Desktop, Server, and Cloud products.


Codenamed "Disco Dingo", 19.04 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.  The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

This beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavours.

The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 19.04 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on April 18th, 2019.

Ubuntu 19.04 is based on the Linux release series 5.0. It includes support for AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics processor, complete support for the Raspberry Pi 3B and the 3B+, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, many USB 3.2 and Type-C improvements, Intel Cannonlake graphics, significant power-savings improvements, P-State driver support for Skylake X servers, POWER memory protection keys support, KVM support for AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization, enablement of Shared Memory Communications remote and direct (SMC-R/D), Open for Business (OFB), and zcrypt on IBM Z among with many other improvements since the v4.15 kernel shipped in 18.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 19.04 ships with the latest GNOME desktop 3.32. This brings performance improvements and new features.

GNOME Disks now supports VeraCrypt

  • Settings includes a panel to manage Thunderbolt devices and shows those panels only where the relevant hardware is detected.
  • More shell components are cached in GPU RAM to reduce load and increase FPS count
  • Desktop zoom is now a lot smoother
  • Smoothing of window previews is now dependant on CPU/GPU availability so that busy applications don't impact the whole system when window previews are visible
  • Added the option to automatically submit error reports to the error reporting dialog window
  • Fingerprint libraries promoted to main to allow unlocking with fingerprints
  • Added snap support to XDG Portals and landed support in Ubuntu
