Lucid Lynx: Shuttleworth Announces Next Ubuntu LTS

Sep 22, 2009

Mark Shuttleworth has issued a video at the Atlanta Linux Fest to announced the next Ubuntu version with Long Term Support (LTS) named "Lucid Lynx."

According to Shuttleworth, the next Lucid Lynx Ubuntu version combines lucidity and the clever goal-orientation of the lynx. In Ubuntu's versioning, it will take on the number 10.4. In a video made shortly after his birthday, Shuttleworth addressed Ubuntu adherents without going into many details about 10.4. One thing for sure, GNOME 2.0 will see its last days in it. The next LTS versions will include GNOME 3 instead. Lucid Lynx is set for April 2010, in step with the two-year cycle for LTS releases. In the meantime, Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala, is bound to make its appearance soon in Ubuntu's half-year cycle.
