Zorin OS 15.2 Now Available

Mar 13, 2020

The latest release of Zorin OS offers numerous improvements.

The latest iteration of Zorin OS has arrived. Version 15.2 is now available, which focuses on software bugs, security, and expanded hardware compatibility. This newest version might also serve as the last release until the developers of Zorin OS unleash their upcoming Zorin Grid, which gives admins the ability to manage massive desktop rollouts from a web-based dashboard.

Since the last release of Zorin OS (Summer of 2019), the OS has been downloaded over 900,000 times and has been included in numerous “best of” lists for desktop distributions. So this latest version should be seen as yet another step forward for the open source operating system.

Zorin OS 15.2 is based on Ubuntu 18.04.4, so it includes the 5.3 version of the Linux kernel. The .2 release also adds support for AMD Navi GPUs (including the Radeon RX 5700), as well as support for 10th gen Intel processors  and newer model MacBook and MacBook Pro keypads and touchpads.

Users will also find updated versions of core apps, such as Firefox, LibreOffice, and GIMP.

You can download four different versions of Zorin 15.2:

  • Lite – Best suited for older hardware and includes LibreOffice, the XFCE desktop, and the standard desktop layouts.
  • Core – Best suited for everyday desktop usage and includes LIbreOffice, standard desktop layouts, the GNOME desktop, and Zorin Connect (to sync your phone with your desktop).
  • Education – Best suited for education environments and includes LibreOffice, both GNOME and XFCE desktops, Zorin Connect, standard desktop layouts, and educational games and apps.
