As Scheduled Today canonical released Ubuntu 15.04 code-name Vivid Vervet , Now its available for download or upgrade . Some application is now polished , unity is updated but overall It’s just polished version , It’s a Non-LTS version so it will get support for next 9 months only ( until next release ) .
- Linux kernel 3.19
- unity 7.3
- Compiz 0.97
- LibreOffice 4.4
- Ubuntu make ( previously Ubuntu developers tools center )
- Lxd ( Docker like containers )
One of the major change is that ” systemd ” has replaced Upstart as the standard boot and service manager , you can easily switch between upstart and systemd from the boot menu .
Permanent Switch back to upstart ( use with caution )
Install the upstart-sysv package. This will remove ubuntu-standard and systemd-sysv (but should not remove anything else — if it does, yell!), and run sudo update-initramfs -u. After that, grub’s “Advanced options” menu will have a corresponding “Ubuntu, with Linux … (systemd)” entry where you can do an one-time boot with systemd.
