Canonical to Focus Mostly on Stability and Reliability for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Ubuntu Desktop Director Will Cooke shares some information about what Canonical’s plans are for the next LTS (Long Term Support) release of Ubuntu, which is scheduled for release on April 26, 2018. As expected, they’ll focus mostly on stability and reliability, but it looks like there will be some new features added as well during the development cycle of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. To improve the overall stability and reliability of the OS, Canonical will have to fix a lot of annoyances from the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) release, which hit the streets last week on October 19. This week, the Ubuntu devs managed to fix crashes for GNOME Shell extensions and the GNOME Online Accounts panel in Settings.
