Canonical has released the new version of the Ubuntu 22.10 distribution. Codenamed “Kinetic Kudu”, this release improves the experience of enterprise developers and administrators.
It also includes the latest tools and applications with a special focus on the IoT ecosystem.
Ubuntu 22.10 provides tooling updates to Ruby, Go, GCC, and Rust. OpenSSH in Ubuntu 22.10 is configured by default to be enabled at system boot. However sshd will not start until an incoming connection request is received. This will reduce the memory footprint of Ubuntu Server on smaller devices, VMs or LXD containers.
Ubuntu 22.10 also comes with a new debug service to help developers and administrators debug. Debugging tools like gdb will automatically download what is needed to trace over HTTPS.
Ubuntu 22.10 supports MicroPython on some microcontrollers, such as for the Raspberry Pi Pico W. rshell, thonny, and mpremote are all available in the Ubuntu repositories. The Ubuntu graphics stack transition to kms means that developers can run Pi-based graphics applications using frameworks like Qt outside of a desktop session and without Pi-specific drivers.
All users will be able to try GNOME 43, including the GTK4 theme for improved performance and consistency. Quick Settings now provides faster access to commonly used options such as wifi, bluetooth, dark mode and power settings.
