Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet" Released


Canonical has announced the launch of Ubuntu 15.04. The new release, which will be supported for nine months, features LibreOffice 4.4, version 3.19 of the Linux kernel and a switch from Canonical's Upstart init to systemd.

Quote:
systemd has replaced Upstart as the standard boot and service manager on all Ubuntu flavors except Touch. At the time of the 15.04 release there are no known major problems which prevent booting. The only service which does not currently start is Juju, which will be fixed in a post-release update soon; all other packaged Ubuntu services are expected to work. Upstart continues to control user sessions... You can boot with Upstart once by selecting `Advanced options for Ubuntu' in the GRUB boot menu and starting the `Ubuntu, with Linux ... (upstart)' entry. To switch back permanently, install the upstart-sysv package (this will remove systemd-sysv and ubuntu-standard).

New features in 15.04:
  • Updated Packages
  • Linux kernel 3.19
  • Ubuntu Make (nee Developer Tools Centre)
  • Unity 7.3
  • systemd has replaced Upstart

When can we do an upgrade instead of a complete reinstall?

Upgrading has always worked as expected for me (and is officially supported). If you're having an issue you may want to start a dedicated thread here at LQ.

I didn't see the upgrade button the first time I ran Software Updater. Sorry about that. Other then having to boot with the previous kernel and remove the Nvidia driver and then boot with new kernel and then reinstall the driver again.

"To upgrade Ubuntu 14.10 to Ubuntu 15.04 youll need to be patient; youll get a notification prompt asking if you want to upgrade at some point in the next 24 to 48 hours. You can check for the update from the command line (in 14.10) by using; sudo do-release-upgrade"

Ubuntu 15.04 Released, This Is Whats New
