Ubuntu 23.04
A new version of Ubuntu, 23.04, has been released.

I came to check if the release was out, and it already is! So I will be installing it on my test machine to check it out. As always, I don’t expect too many updates, but the updated gnome 44 might make it more user-friendly.

New features in 23.04
Ubuntu 23.04 comes with the new Linux kernel 6.2, which has many new features.

Notable kernel features in Ubuntu:

Support for building and running Rust modules :crab: outside of the kernel build tree with shared and low latency levels;
Newer LSM stacks and AppArmor patch set.
Notable kernel features in version 8:

Performance improvements for older Intel Skylake processors with call depth tracking;
Support for Intel Arc DG2/Alchemist graphics;
New Intel TDX guest driver;
Support for Sony DualShock 4 gamepads;
Updated zstd compression code;
Various BPF improvements;
Support for new hardware and various performance and security enhancements.

systemd v252.5
The initialization system has been updated to systemd v252.5. Please refer to the vendor’s consolidated changelog for additional information on individual features.

GNOME has been updated with new features and fixes from the latest GNOME release – GNOME 44.

There are many other updates, and here’s the full list, which includes some interesting new Active Directory features that I’m not familiar with, as well as Cloud images, which I think I tested.
By the way, Ubuntu Cloud Images are special Ubuntu operating system images designed for use in cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and others. These images contain a minimal set of components and configurations that allow for quick deployment of an Ubuntu instance in a cloud environment.

Ubuntu Cloud Images are continuously updated to provide the latest component versions and security updates. Additionally, Ubuntu also provides other image options, such as for use on private servers or virtual machines.

Ubuntu Cloud Images allow for quick and easy deployment of Ubuntu in a cloud environment, providing scalability and flexibility. These images also allow for system customization using cloud environment tools and automation of deployment processes.
