Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) LTS is out

They’ve passed their RC status and have moved into full Long-Term Release for Ubuntu Lucid Lynx — local mirrors are still showing the RC version, but it’s out!

What’s new?

  • F-Spot replaces the GIMP
  • PiTiVi video editor added
  • GNOME 2.30
  • New themes: Ambiance and Radiance
  • New wallpaper
  • Linux kernel 2.6.32
  • New nVidia hardware driver
  • Gwibber social media application
  • Faster boot time, with a different look and feel on the bootsplash screen
  • Ubuntu One adds contacts and bookmark sharing
  • Ubuntu One music store integrated into Ryhthmbox
  • Ubuntu Software Center 2.0

I’ve only played with the 10.04 Server edition so far, and the faster boot time is definately a big win (though some regressive network driver support still needed to be ironed out – hopefully sorted for the final release…)

Yay!!! Well done, guys!! Thanks for a new, even more sparkly LTS!
