Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 to Be Based on the GNOME 3.22 Stack, Ship with Linux 4.9

That’s right, you’ll be able to enjoy a modern GNOME 3.22 desktop environment on Ubuntu GNOME 17.04, but it looks like some of the pre-installed apps are still from the GNOME 3.20 Stack, including the Nautilus (Files) file manager and GNOME Terminal terminal emulator. Another notable changes, besides the fact that Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 is powered by Linux kernel 4.9 and uses the latest Mesa 13.0.2 3D Graphics Library, there’s also Flatpak and Snap support, offered out-of-the-box in the latest daily build releases, which ship with Flatpak 0.8 installed by default.
