Ubuntu MATE 19.04 and 18.04.2 Are Now Available for GPD Pocket and GDP Pocket 2

Coming six months after the release of Ubuntu MATE 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) for the GPD Pocket and GPD Pocket 2 computers, the team lead by talented Martin Wimpress released today images of the Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS operating system, which was possible thanks to the recent hardware enablement (HWE) stack upgrade, and the beta version of Ubuntu 19.04 for the tiny devices. As expected, the Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Ubuntu 19.04 Beta (Disco Dingo) releases for GPD Pocket and GPD Pocket 2 bring numerous updates and enhancements to make your GDP Pocket experience on Linux much pleasant. These include the enablement of TearFree rendering by default to prevent tearing, and a usable GRUB boot loader instance for both models.
