Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) Feature Freeze

As of today, the upcoming version of the operating system Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) is entering the Feature Freeze stage, an important milestone in its six-month development cycle.

The Feature Freeze stage means that no other significant new features will be implemented on Ubuntu 21.04 until the final release is expected by the end of April 2021.

So developers will no longer focus their efforts on fixing new features so that the final release is not delayed. Dubbed “Hirsute Hippo”, Ubuntu 21.04 has been in development since late October 2020, shortly after its release .10 (Groovy Gorilla).

As usual, the Freeze Freeze stage will be followed shortly by an optional “Evd Ubuntu Testing Week” (Ubuntu Testing Week), which will take place between March 4-11 and is intended for those who want to help with testing.

"Ideally, from now on you will all focus on fixing bugs rather than introducing new features to the traffic," Brian Murray said on behalf of the Ubuntu Release team in a statement to mailing list.

The new version of Ubuntu 21.04 will come with GNOME 3.38 as the default interface, but will likely bring many of the GNOME 40 applications for a hybrid experience.

Another important on Ubuntu 21.04 is the fact that Wayland will be the default session, with the X.Org session as an alternative to them by NVIDIA and for those with hardware not supported by Wayland.

Θα υπάρχει ένα ενημερωμένο toolchain που θα βασίζεται στην τελευταία σειρά GCC 11 (GNU Compiler Collection), η Python 3.9 από προεπιλογή, το GNU C 2.33, LLVM 11 and hopefully Linux kernel 5.11. Currently the distribution wears Linux kernel 5.10 LTS by default. Some of the latest apps will also be available.

The final version of Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) will arrive on April 22, 2021 and will only be supported for nine months, until July 2021.

Until then, however, we will be able to get a first taste of Ubuntu 21.04 with the beta version, which is expected to be released in April.
