The Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Codename Has Been Revealed…

Following Ubuntu 19.10 ‘Eoan Ermine’, the next version of Ubuntu will, as expected, be based around the letter “F”. But it’s not going to be Feral Ferret, Famous Fox or Finicky Falcon. No, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is codenamed the “Focal Fossa“. And I think it’s a fabulously fitting title. Most of us have barely had time to explore the exuberant excesses of the Eoan Ermine release and yet, development never stops. As convention dictates, each Ubuntu codename combines an adjective and an animal (real or otherwise), alliteratively. And for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS that combination is “focal”, and “fossa” — but what do these words mean? Read more

  • Required update to recent libarchive

    The compression algorithm zstd brings faster compression and decompression, while maintaining a compression ratio comparable with xz. This will speed up package installation with pacman, without further drawbacks. The imminent release of pacman 5.2 brings build tools with support for compressing packages with zstd. To install these packages you need libarchive with support for zstd, which entered the repositories in September 2018. In order for zstd compressed packages to be distributed, we require all users to have updated to at least libarchive 3.3.3-1. You have had a year, so we expect you already did update. Hurry up if you have not.
