More about Ubuntu 20.04 “Focal Fossa”

Ubuntu 20.04 “Focal Fossa” includes plenty of new features that should delight any Linux and Ubuntu fans. This newest iteration is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, which means it will be supported until 2025. Focal Fossa is built upon the Linux 5.4 kernel.

What’s included with Ubuntu 20.04:

  • Wireguard VPN service, which is built-in at the kernel level and is significantly easier to set up than a traditional VPN.
  • GNOME 3.36 with a boost in performance, a new Do Not Disturb button, fractional scaling, the ability to remove the dock, even more snap support in GNOME Software, more default theme variants, faster boot times, and improved ZFS support.

What’s not available anymore:

  • ISOs for 32-bit systems
  • The Amazon app
  • Python 2
