Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) released

Thu, 10/18/2018 - 12:47

Codenamed “Cosmic Cuttlefish”, 18.10 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.

The Ubuntu kernel has been updated to the 4.18 based Linux kernel,
our default toolchain has moved to gcc 8.2 with glibc 2.28, and we’ve
also updated to openssl 1.1.1 and gnutls 3.6.4 with TLS1.3 support.

Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS brings a fresh look with the community-driven
Yaru theme replacing our long-serving Ambiance and Radiance themes. We
are shipping the latest GNOME 3.30, Firefox 63, LibreOffice 6.1.2, and
many others.

Ubuntu Server 18.10 includes the Rocky release of OpenStack including
the clustering enabled LXD 3.0, new network configuration via netplan.io,
and iteration on the next-generation fast server installer. Ubuntu Server
brings major updates to industry standard packages available on private
clouds, public clouds, containers or bare metal in your datacentre.

The newest Ubuntu Budgie, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE,
Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu are also being released today.

More details can be found for these at their individual release notes:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CosmicCuttlefish/ReleaseNotes#Official_flavours

intenance updates will be provided for 9 months for all flavours
releasing with 18.10.

Ubuntu Membership Board call for nominations

Fri, 08/24/2018 - 13:12

As you may know, Ubuntu Membership is a recognition of significant and sustained contribution to Ubuntu and the Ubuntu community. To this end, the Community Council recruits from our current member community for the valuable role of reviewing and evaluating the contributions of potential members to bring them on board or assist with having them achieve this goal.

We have five members of our boards expiring from their terms, which means we need to do some restaffing of this Membership Board.

We have the following requirements for nominees:

  • be an Ubuntu Member (preferably for some time)
  • be confident that you can evaluate contributions to various parts of our community
  • be committed to attending the membership meetings broad insight into the Ubuntu community at large is a plus

Additionally, those sitting on membership boards should have a proven track record of activity in the community. They have shown themselves over time to be able to work well with others and display the positive aspects of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. They should be people who can discern character and evaluate contribution quality without emotion while engaging in an interview/discussion that communicates interest, a welcoming atmosphere, and which is marked by humanity, gentleness, and kindness. Even when they must deny applications, they should do so in such a way that applicants walk away with a sense of hopefulness and a desire to return with a more complete application rather than feeling discouraged or hurt.

To nominate yourself or somebody else (please confirm they wish to accept the nomination and state you have done so), please send a mail to the membership boards mailing list (ubuntu-membership-boards at lists.ubuntu.com). You will want to include some information about the nominee, a Launchpad profile link, and which time slot (20:00 or 22:00) the nominee will be able to participate in.

We will be accepting nominations through Monday, September 10th at 13:00 UTC. At that time all nominations will be forwarded to the Community Council who will make the final decision and announcement.

Thanks in advance to you and to the dedication everybody has put into their roles as board members.
