Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werwolf Daily Build Sudah bisa Didownload

Pasca diselenggarakannya Ubuntu Online Summit (UOS) untuk Ubuntu 15.10 kemarin, secara resmi pulalah pengembangan versi baru dari Ubuntu itu dimulai. Kini, Daily Build ISO dari Ubuntu 15.10 sudah bisa kita download.

Sangat mungkin, Ubuntu 15.10 nanti akan dikembangkan pada basis Debian 9 Stretch yang juga baru-baru ini dimulai pengembangannya. Ubuntu 15.10 saya kira juga akan mengimplementasikan Kernel 4.0 yang dirilis om Linus 12 April 2015 yang lalu.

Jangan Gembira dulu

Jangan gembira dulu. Walaupun file ISO dari Ubuntu 15.10 sudah bisa didownload, kualitas software dan library serta fitur-fiturnya masih sama dengan Ubuntu 15.04. Masih menggunakan themes yang sama dan kernel yang sama. Perlahan-lahan, tiap harinya akan ada pembaruan yang disematkan oleh para developer Ubuntu di Canonical.

Ubuntu 15.10 akan hadir sekitar bulan Oktober 2015 nanti.

Dalam kesempatan panelnya di Ubuntu Online Summit (UOS) untuk Ubuntu 15.10, tim development Lubuntu berdiskusi soal masa depan Lubuntu dan fitur-fitur yang akan diterapkan pada Lubuntu 15.10 nanti. Salah satu putusan menarik adalah keputusan untuk total berpindah menggunakan LXQt daripada LXDE.

Pada edisi sekarang, Lubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet masih menggunakan LXDE sebagai desktop environment defaultnya. Dengan keputusan dalam Ubuntu Online Summit kemarin, secara resmi Lubuntu 15.10 sudah memulai proses migrasi dari LXDE ke LXQt.

Officiall Codename for Ubuntu 15.10 is “Wily Werewolf”

Mark Shuttleworth has just announced the officiall codename of the Ubuntu 15.10, Wily Werewolf.

Shuttleworth announce it on the Ubuntu Online Summit keynote to make this one. What’s interesting about this particular name is the fact that it makes a full circle (almost) to the first Ubuntu release Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog), that dates back to October 2004.

Unlike other projects that used the community to find a name for the next release, in their case, the names were always chosen by Mark Shuttleworth. Most of the them used real animals as a source of inspiration, even if some users doubted that, but the Werewolf is not one of them. It actually follows Vivid Vervet and Utopic Unicorn, so it looks like the names are becoming more exotic as we’re getting closer to the letter A.

Beware, This is The Known Issues of Ubuntu 15.04

Beware guys, this is many known issues found in Ubuntu 15.04. Be prepare with your debugging skill for one of this issues:

  • The amd64 (Intel x86 64bit) images specifically targeted at Apple hardware (amd64+mac) are no longer produced. Most Apple computers are now capable of booting the amd64 image directly using the EFI (not legacy) boot method so long as their firmware is up to date. If for some reason your hardware doesn’t boot properly using the amd64 image, make sure you don’t have a pending EFI update and if that still doesn’t work, then patch the 64-bit ISO using the software in bug #1298894 (tested working on Macbook 2,1). Alternatively, simply use the i386 (32bit) image instead.

  • Due to changes in syslinux, it is not currently possible to use usb-creator from 14.04 and earlier releases to write USB images for 14.10; we believe that it is also not possible to use usb-creator from a 14.10 system to write USB images for earlier releases. For now the workaround is to use a matching release of Ubuntu to write the images, but we intend to issue updates soon to work around this incompatibility. 1325801

  • In Virtualbox, the installer currently has a bug where after the installation is complete, the installation medium will eject, but you will be unable to press ENTER to reboot. Powering off and back on should boot you into your installed system. This is being tracked in bug 1447038

  • On OEM installations, after the end user configuration in a different language than the default initial OEM installation, extra language packs are not installed (1446539) You can install extra language packs by selecting “Language Support” in “System Settings”. A dialog will prompt you to install missing language packs.

  • During installation on a blank disk on a UEFI system, if the user creates custom partitions, the installer displays a ‘Force UEFI installation?’ dialog while there is no pre-installed system (1447256). This dialog is not displayed if the custom partitioner is not used. This message is harmless since no previous installation exists on the system and you can proceed with the installation.

Whats New in Ubuntu Make in Ubuntu 15.04

Ubuntu Make continues to add support for new platforms, bringing the total to 15 (from 1 last release). This includes highlights such as:

  • Android NDK support and bumped Android Studio to latest version
  • Other new IDEs: IDEA (ultimate and community editions), pycharm (professional, educational and community editions), webstorm, rubymine, phpstorm and eclipse
  • Golang compiler support
  • Firefox developer edition
  • Dartlang editor
  • Stencyl game development platform
  • Numerous usability improvements and accessibility (ppa, doc)

These new features are also available to LTS users.

We also rationalized 3rd party library managers so that they all behave the same and don’t overwrite and/or mix with system libraries. Developers don’t have to worry about messing up up their installation if they want to install a pipy, npm, rubygem libraries.

Upstart continues to control user sessions. Continue reading Boot and Service Management Change in Ubuntu 15.04

Linux Kernel Ubuntu 15.04 is Kernel 3.19

For servers we see a number of performance related improvements including network send batching and the introduction of the data centre congestion algorithm, as well as the introduction of discard support in Device Mapper raid configurations. There are also improvements to inode locking which should show benefits under heavy load. Netfilter (nftables) continues to evolve gaining facilities for package logging and dumping.

A number of filesystems gained minor new features, including btrfs which improved its disk replacement in raid 5 and 6 configurations, and support for scrubbing in those. NFS gained hole punching and preallocation support. Overlayfs finally moved upstream so simplifying its provision in Ubuntu. On the networking side we see the start of routing and switch offload support, and the addition of checksum offload for Generic UDP Encapsulation. Finally we see the introduction of the cutely named foo-over-UDP support, allowing a number of other protocols to nest inside. Continue reading Linux Kernel Ubuntu 15.04 is Kernel 3.19
