OnWorks Ubuntu online 20.04 (Focal Fossa) is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.






The list of new features in Ubuntu online, version 20 (Focal Fossa), are the following:

1. WireGuard supported added

This new feature wasn't supposed to come until kernel 5.6, and with Focal Fossa shipping with kernel 5.4, WireGuard support was a ways off. Not so fast. Instead of having to wait until that 5.6 kernel, the developers have decided to roll WireGuard into the 5.4 kernel and ship it with 20.04. This makes perfect sense as the WireGuard VPN has recently reached the 1.0 milestone, so it's now out of beta.

2. GNOME 3.36

The biggest change for this upcoming release is the lock screen. To date, the default lock GNOME lock screen has been pretty "bleh." It's well past time the desktop finally brought that feature up to date, and 3.36 does just that. The new GNOME lock screen uses a blurred version of the current desktop wallpaper and the user avatar has been tweaked to look a bit more modern. GNOME 3.36 also includes the usual bevy of performance improvements, bug fixes, and other additions that follow the evolution of a desktop. GNOME 3.36 is incredibly fast.

3. Disable all desktop notification with ‘Do Not Disturb’ button

Getting distracted by desktop notifications? You can utilize the ‘do not disturb’ option to toggle the desktop notifications.

4. Fractional scaling

Ubuntu finally brings fractional scaling. If you always found that icons at 100% looked too small and bit too big at 200%, you can take advantage of the fractional scaling. When enabled, you can set the scaling to 125, 150, 175 and 200.

5. Disable the Dock.

You can now disable it completely. There is a new application, unsurprisingly called Extensions, to manage extensions and you can use it to disable the dock completely.

6. Snaps before apts

Canonical keeps on pushing its universal packaging format snap. It is even more evident in Ubuntu 20.04 release. If you try to run a program that is not installed, earlier it used to suggest apt command for installing it. But now it suggests both snap and apt commands with snap command suggestion before apt.

7. Linux Kernel 5.4

Ubuntu 20.04 features the latest LTS kernel 5.4. This means that you get native ExFAT support and all the other performance improvements and new hardware supports that come with it.

8. Improved ZFS support

Ubuntu became the first mainstream Linux distribution to introduce ZFS as root with Ubuntu 19.10 release. While Linus Torvalds may not like ZFS, it is still a popular file system. Ubuntu 20.04 sees improved support for ZFS.

9. No Amazon app, no python 2

For past eight years or so, Ubuntu included an Amazon app installed by default. This so-called Amazon app did nothing but open Amazon website of your country (if there is one) in a web browser with Ubuntu’s affiliate link. The Amazon shopping app disappears from Ubuntu 20.04. Python 2 was first release in 2000. After twenty years, Python 2 has finally reached end of life. Ubuntu 20.04 won’t support Python 2 anymore and you’ll have to content yourself with Python 3.
