Dopo il successo di Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” Canonical punta a nuove versioni di rilascio.

Canonical sta valutando la possibilità di rilasciare un’altra versione per Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin”, la quinta, con il kernel previsto per Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr.

 

Normalmente, solo quattro uscite sono state pubblicate per Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), ma il successo della distribuzione ha spinto gli sviluppatori a pensare di una nuova versione.

 

Canonical sta cercando di determinare la data di tale rilascio.  La versione 12.04.4 e’ stata rilasciata nel mese di febbraio (ved. sotto) e il mese di agosto sembra una stima ragionevole ipotizzando di evitare di scontrarsi con la versione 14.04.1. cioè la prima versione aggiornata di Ubuntu Trusty.

 

Quando Ubuntu 12.04.5 arriverà lo farà molto probabilmente presentando il kernel Linux di Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr), che potrebbe benissimo essere 3.13 o anche 3.14, rendendo questo un rilascio molto importante.

Come si ricorda novità di questa versione è l'introduzione di una nuova versione di Unity finalmente stabile ed usabile.

 

Ecco le versioni di Ubuntu 12.04 rilasciate fino ad oggi:

Ubuntu giunge alle nostre orecchie solo perché è stato mutuato come nome per un sistema operativo di successo; lo abbiamo sentito nei discorsi di Mandela, del vescovo Tutu, ed è uno dei concetti fondanti di quel movimento di rinascimento che vuole far fiorire il continente africano al di sopra delle difficoltà attuali.
