Danielle Foré Has an Update for elementary OS 7

May 10, 2022

Now that Ubuntu 22.04 has been released, the team behind elementary OS is preparing for the upcoming 7.0 release.

Elementary OS founder and CEO Danielle Foré has announced updates for version 6.1 and adds that the elementary OS team is now preparing for the upcoming 7.0 release. Although there’s no hard release date for 7.0, they’ve announced a codename (Horus) and that the team is focusing on a swift release over adding a host of new features for the initial release. That means the evolution from 6.1 to 7.0 will be subtle.

Some of the features they are planning for 7.0 include automatic app updates and power profiles. As well, 7.0 will debut the minimalist Music app as well as the migration of some components migrating to Gtk4 (which should bring much-improved performance and smoother animations).

One thing 7.0 won’t do is make the switch to Wayland. Although they are preparing for the shift, elementary OS isn’t ready for the jump.
