Canonical has released Ubuntu 21.04 which carries the code name “Hirsute Hippo”. The distribution’s new version ships with GNOME running on a Wayland session as the default desktop and includes the built-in ability to join Active Directory domains. “Ubuntu machines can join an Active Directory (AD) domain at installation for central configuration. AD administrators can now manage Ubuntu workstations, which simplifies compliance with company policies. Ubuntu 21.04 adds the ability to configure system settings from an AD domain controller. Using a Group Policy Client, system administrators can specify security policies on all connected clients, such as password policies and user access control, and Desktop environment settings, such as login screen, background and favourite apps. Ubuntu 21.04 uses Wayland by default, a significant leap forward in security. Firefox, OBS Studio and many applications built with Electron and Flutter take advantage of Wayland automatically, for smoother graphics and better fractional scaling.” Additional details can be found in the distribution’s release announcement and in the release notes. Download (pkglist): ubuntu-21.04-desktop-amd64.iso (2,688MB, SHA256, signature, torrent), ubuntu-21.04-live-server-amd64.iso (1,119MB, SHA256, signature, torrent).
