Ubuntu core developer Lukasz Zemczak said: “From what we’ve seen so far, things are looking pretty good, so hopefully this is the final release.”
Ubuntu 22.04 Beta introduces a number of package updates on top of Ubuntu 21.10, including some GNOME 42 components, and now defaults to a GNOME Wayland session with NVIDIA drivers.
It also introduces a GNOME L3 buffer patch, systemd-oomd integration for out-of-memory handling, tweaks to its POWER support baseline, and many other updates.
Linux 5.15 LTS is the default kernel for Ubuntu 22.04, GCC 11.2 is the default system compiler, and Mesa 22.0 provides open source graphics driver support.
Canonical has been working on a new desktop installer for Ubuntu, but in the 22.04 LTS release, the existing Ubiquity is still the default.
