Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) Officially Released, Here’s What’s New

Six months in the making, Ubuntu 19.10 is dubbed Eoan Ermine and it’s Canonical’s 31st release of Ubuntu Linux, one of the most popular free and Open Source operating systems in the world. Packed with numerous goodies, this release also celebrates fifteen years since the first Ubuntu release, but it’s not a long-term supported version, so it will only receive software and security updates for nine months, until July 2020. Highlights of the Ubuntu 19.10 release include embedded Nvidia proprietary drivers in the ISO image to improve the performance, smoothness, and frame rates in games, as well as for AI/ML users with Nvidia hardware, support for the latest WPA3 Wi-Fi security standard, new edge capabilities for MicroK8s, support for DLNA sharing enabled by default for sharing videos to your smart TV, and experimental ZFS file system for root, which is implemented in the installer.
