What's new in Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus)?
Note: WE ARE MEETING AT CIVIC HALL!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Wednesday Apr 6th, 2016, 4:30pm.
Mark Baker, Ubuntu Server and Cloud Product Manager at Canonical, will talk about the recently? (4/??/16) released Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Support) 16.04 Xenial Xerus, which, as an LTS release, will be supported for the next five years.
Most importantly, Mark will answer the pressing question, "What is a Xerus?" In addition, Mark will be thoroughly reviewing the major changes in 16.04, with a particular goal to explain why the changes are important and how they impact users, whether they are running Ubuntu in the cloud, on the desktop or in their pockets.
Mark will also touch on some recent changes in Ubuntu's kernel maintenance policies, and other timely Ubuntu news.
Afterwards: Join us afterwards at The Storehouse Pub where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Storehouse Pub is located at 69 W. 23rd Street.
