All the new features in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
Color emojis are now supported 👏👏👏
versions, Ubuntu only supported monochrome (black and white) emojis, which
quite frankly, didn’t look so good. Ubuntu 18.04 will support colored emojis by
using the Noto Color Emoji font. With 18.04, you can view and add color emojis
with ease everywhere. They are supported natively – so you can use them without
using 3-rd party apps or installing/configuring anything extra. You can always
disable the color emojis by removing the font.
GNOME desktop environment
Ubuntu started using
the GNOME desktop environment with Ubuntu 17.10 instead of the default Unity
environment. Ubuntu 18.04 will continue using GNOME. This is a major change to
This article will
mainly focus on Ubuntu’s changes, but GNOME has also done a lot of changes to
their desktop environment, as well as new features. An improved dock, an
on-screen keyboard, and more. So check out GNOME’s website for more info.
Ubuntu 18.04 with a Faster Boot Speed
The Ubuntu desktop
team has been working on improving the boot time on the new Ubuntu 18.04
release. We expect a big improvement
Xorg will be used by default instead of Wayland
Ubuntu 17.10 used the
Wayland graphics server by default. With Ubuntu 18.04, the default graphics
server will change to Xorg. Wayland will still be available as an option, but
Xorg will be the default, out of the box one. The Ubuntu Desktop team decided
to go with Xorg for its compatibility with services like Skype, Google
Hangouts, WebRTC services, VNC and RDP, and more.
Lots of improvements and bug fixes
The most notable
improvement will be in CPU usage. The Ubuntu Desktop team has greatly improved
and reduced the CPU usage caused by Ubuntu 18.04.
They’ve also fixed
hundreds of bugs and made hundreds of other small improvements.
Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop will have a new app pre-installed
The new LTS desktop
release will ship with a new app pre-installed by default. The app is GNOME To
Do and it’s a very useful app for organizing lists, tasks, and more. You can
prioritize them. color them, set due dates, and a number of other features.
Ubuntu 18.04 minimal install option
Ubuntu 18.04 will use
Ubiquity, the Ubuntu installer you’re probably already familiar with. Though
the developers plan on implementing Subiquity, 18.04 will use Ubiquity, which
will have a new “minimal install" option that you can choose during setup.
Minimal install basically means the same Ubuntu, but without most of the
pre-installed software. The minimal install option does not make Ubuntu 18.04
lightweight. It only saves about 500 MB. The minimal Ubuntu 18.04 version is
only 28MB in size (when compressed). If you need a lightweight alternative, use
something like Lubuntu.
Applications will be installed as snaps by default
They been planning on
using snaps for a while, and they finally shipped GNOME Calculator as a snap
instead of a deb. This is a test to help the Desktop team find and fix any
bugs. They’ll later on move more applications to snap in the final release.
Using snaps will make the process of installing and updating apps much easier.
You can even install snaps on any distro and device.
Ubuntu 18.04 will ship with Linux Kernel 4.15
Ubuntu’s daily builds
started to ship with Linux Kernel 4.15 by default – the latest stable release
of the Linux kernel. 4.15 has fixed the
Spectre and Meltdown issues, among other things.
