Ubuntu Touch OTA-12 Released with Lomiri (Unity8), Revamped Home Screen

Many months in the works, Ubuntu Touch OTA-12 is a massive update that ships with Lomiri (Unity8) by default. The version of Lomiri included in OTA-12 is built upon one of the last Unity8 released from Canonical. The inclusion of Lomiri is already a major change since it introduces new functionality and new interaction models to the interface, including the Application Drawer. But, with this change, another one gets removed. The Dash and Scopes are no longer available in OTA-12, which gives Ubuntu Phone users a brand new home screen.
