Canonical recently unveiled Ubuntu 15.10, nicknamed Wily Werewolf. In the past, an autumn launch of Ubuntu Linux like this would have been more experimental, warranting some warning when updating. These kinds of releases weren’t very update-at-your-own-chance tough, but they ended up usually packed complete of new characteristics that had been not totally baked. (For illustration, the now-shuttered Ubuntu One initial debuted in nine.ten. The Unity desktop grew to become a default in 11.ten, and the controversial Amazon search benefits in the Unity Sprint made their debut in 12.ten.) Specially when compared to the spring .04 releases that tended to be steady (and each two many years packaged as Lengthy Term Support releases), autumn was Canonical’s time to experiment.
Unfortunately—or the good news is, dependent on how you feel about desktop experiments—that’s not the case with Wily Werewolf.
There are new functions well worth updating for in this launch, but, on the complete, this is Canonical refining what it has previously produced. The business is basically receiving completely ready for the next LTS release (Ubuntu 16.04, owing toward the end of April 2016), which will also probably be the last LTS release based on Unity seven.
