After yesterday's release of Ubuntu 17.04 Final Beta, I decided to try the new (second beta) Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 that was released with the new GNOME 3.24 interface.
The final release of Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 to be released on 13 April will be released with the GNOME 3.24 desktop environment. Although I am not a friend of Ubundoids I decided to try the new beta, as GNOME 3.24 brings many attractive features. Among them is Night Light.
That particular feature could not be missed by Ubuntu. Windows 10 Creators Update, Apple iOS and Google Android have the specific feature that can automatically reduce the amount of blue light emitted by laptop screens, computer screens, and phone screens at night .
In GNOME 3.24, developers decided to add a blue light filter and named Night Light.
We found that there is an updated application for the Calendar, but also the completely new application for recipes, GNOME Recipes for those who have cooking concerns…
However, some of the applications that bring the new Gnome come in older versions due to some bugs that have not been resolved at the time of release. So we have the Nautilus 3.20.4 file manager, GNOME 3.22 package management software with Flatpak 0.8 support, GNOME Terminal 3,22, Evolution 3.22 and File Roller 3.22.
We expect that until the official release, all the above applications will be in the 3.24 version.
Among the notable changes that Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 final Beta brings, we can also mention the chrome-gnome-shell system assistant which is installed by default. The Tracker search indexing engine is now sandboxed. Gnome-icon-theme and gconf are not installed by default and there is a Wayland experimental session.
"A Wayland pilot session is included, but it does not come as a default. If your computer supports open source graphics drivers and you want to try Wayland, log out, and select GNOME in Wayland from the toolbar below the password entry and log in again. ”
Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 final Beta comes with the 4.10 Linux kernel, the Mesa 17.0.1 3D Graphics Library, systemd-resolved as the default DNS resolver. The new operating system uses swap files instead of swap partitions, and comes with the LibreOffice 5.3 office suite installed.
