Ubuntu 20.4 LTS Final Beta Version Released Codename ‘Focal Fossa’
It will be released officially on 23 April 2020.
The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the Beta release of the Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Desktop, Server, and Cloud products.
Ubuntu is a full-featured Linux distribution for clients, servers and clouds, with a fast and easy installation and regular releases. A tightly-integrated selection of excellent applications is included, and an incredible variety of add-on software is just a few clicks away.
20.04 LTS, codenamed “Focal Fossa”, 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.
This Beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavours.
The Beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper image build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 20.04 LTS that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on April 23rd, 2020.
Ubuntu, Ubuntu Server, Cloud Images:
Focal Beta includes updated versions of most of our core set of packages, including a current 5.4 kernel, and much more.
