Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 Is Out as Official Ubuntu Flavor with Budgie 10.2.9 Desktop

Until today, Ubuntu Budgie was known and distributed as budgie-remix, so this is its first official release as an Ubuntu flavor endorsed by Canonical. Because of this, the Ubuntu Budgie team had a lot of work on their hands during the past six months to remove everything related to the old budgie-remix name, as well as to made other necessary changes. Shipping with the updated kernel and graphics stacks from Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), which include Linux kernel 4.10, Mesa 17.0.3, and X.Org Server 1.19.3, Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 is using the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment by default, with the promise that the soon-to-be-released Budgie 10.3 update will land immediately after its launch upstream.
