UBUNTU 22.04 LTS Linux-based Operating System Released


Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long term support) released with improved data protection, new desktop environment, and more updates.

Canonical’s latest Ubuntu 22.04 Linux-based operating system for personal computers, servers, and the cloud, is available for download today.

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) is an upgrade to Ubuntu 21.10 (Impish Indri) and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) long-term support releases. It has been in development for the past six months.

Canonical Ubuntu 22.04 LTS is now generally available, featuring significant leaps forward in cloud confidential computing, real-time kernel for industrial applications, and enterprise Active Directory, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FIPS and FedRAMP compliance – raising the bar for open source from cloud to edge, IoT and workstations. Canonical partners with industry leaders to deliver enterprise-grade security, long-term maintenance and support on all major architectures, hardware and clouds.

“Our mission is to be a secure, reliable and consistent open-source platform – everywhere”, said Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical. “Ubuntu 22.04 LTS unlocks innovation for industries with demanding infrastructure security requirements, such as telecommunications and industrial automation, underpinning their digital transformation.“

For Server

On the Server side of things, Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS comes with live installer image for the RISC-V architecture, OpenStack Yoga, Ceph Quincy, LXD 5.0 LTS, BIND 9.18, Open vSwitch 2.17.0, DPDK 21.11 LTS, virt-manager 4.0.0, libvirt 8.0.0, QEMU 6.2.0, Chrony 4.2, Samba 4.15.5, PHP 8.1.2, MySQL 8.0, PostgreSQL 14, Django 3.2.12, Apache 2.4.52, OpenLDAP 2.5, runc 1.1.0, contained 1.5.9, Corosync 3.16, and Pacemaker 2.1.2.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure works closely with Canonical to enable Ubuntu on all its hardware. ”With Ubuntu 22.04 LTS on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, developers get a highly optimised operating system and kernel with excellent boot speed, security and stability,” said Bo English-Wiczling, Senior Director, Developer Relations, Oracle. “This includes the latest Arm servers, Ampere A1, where we provide high-performing and cost-effective solutions for all types of workloads.”

Confidential Computing and Arm drive public cloud innovation

Ubuntu is deeply integrated into public clouds and optimised for performance, security and ease of use. A key new capability is Confidential Computing, which greatly improves data protection and privacy in leading public clouds without requiring any changes to existing application deployments.

To ensure great performance on Arm, Canonical also optimised Ubuntu 22.04 LTS images for AWS Graviton. On AWS, Ubuntu is available from EC2, with multiple images including support for the latest Graviton chips, all the way to containers.

For Raspberry Pi

For innovators on Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS marks the first LTS release with Ubuntu Desktop support on the Raspberry Pi 4. “With Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, the entire recent Raspberry Pi device portfolio is supported for the very first time, from the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2W to the Raspberry Pi 4”, said Eben Upton, CEO of Raspberry Pi Trading. “It’s great to see a certified Ubuntu Desktop release that includes support for the 2GB Raspberry Pi 4, giving developers all over the world access to the most affordable development desktop environment.”

Data Protection

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS adds Rust for memory-safe systems-level programming. It also moves to OpenSSL v3, with new cryptographic algorithms for elevated security.

“Ubuntu 22.04 LTS’s real-time kernel unlocks low-latency use cases for real-time applications like Cloud RAN,” said Dan Lynch, Marketing Director at Intel. “Together with Canonical, we have validated Intel’s FlexRAN SDK to enable OpenRAN implementations requiring pre-emptive real-time kernel capabilities to meet 5G latency requirements.”
