April 13 is Ubuntu 17.04 is the release date, of course, this is a time difference, the Eastern Hemisphere we have 14 days to see the official version of the release, which means that today you can download Ubuntu 17.04! Ubuntu as one of the most popular desktop system, the release of the day's download is quite large, the official sometimes download speed is quite slow, we can choose to wait until the domestic mirror synchronization is completed in the domestic mirror download or later download.
If you plan to manually upgrade Ubuntu 16.10 to 17.04, you can start the current upgrade, but keep in mind that since thousands of other users will try to do the same thing, it may be slow.
For those who are not in a hurry, just wait until your desktop has a new release notification, so the update will be better.
Ubuntu 17.04 preview
This is not the official version of Ubuntu desktop. This may be the last version of the Unity 7 desktop default configuration. Of course not sure, we know that Ubuntu will switch to GNOME next year on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. In the next interim version, I hope that developers can do the default Gnome in advance.
Then, after giving up Unity 8, this version seems a bit tasteless, Ubuntu 17.04 release code to reach the end of the alphabet, is not the end of an era.
The change is not great and the unity is roughly the same as the 16.04 LTS.
Exchange file (SWAP)
The new installation of Ubuntu 17.04 will no longer need to swap partitions. For modern systems with more memory, it makes no sense.
So, on the contrary, Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus defaults to using swap files. The size of the swap file is different from the swap partition, which typically uses no more than 5% of the available disk space (or 2048MB of RAM), which is another potential benefit.
Linux kernel 4.10
Ubuntu 17.04 includes the Linux kernel 4.10, which is good for anyone who wants to run the version on an AMD Ryzen or Intel Kaby Lake system. Gamers also like to use MESA 17.0.2, by default also use X.Org Server 1.19.2.
Ubuntu's core applications have been dramatically updated.
There is the latest LibreOffice 5.3 (that is, you can enable the "Ribbon" interface); the default calendar application can pick up a convenient weekly view; Firefox and Thunderbird are pushing their latest stable version.
With most of Zesty using GNOME 3.24, you can also get a lot of new versions of other applications and tools, in addition to the inventory terminal emulator (version v3.20), Nautilus File Manager (v3.20) and Ubuntu software ( In v3.22, but with some additional features such as Snap URL support).
Default new wallpaper
Other miscellaneous changes
The default DNS resolver is now systematically resolved by default, and gconfting is no longer installed by gsettings.
Ubuntu 17.04 is an iterative update (9 months support), the attraction is not great. There is no reason for any upgrade for anyone running the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS upgrade (especially for those who choose to accept the newer hardware-enabled protocol stack), which is not an irrelevant version.
Ubuntu 16.10 users will want to upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04 for general improvements to access newer applications.
For other Linux distributions, it may not be surprising that the release you choose does not provide a timely update or a newer kernel version you think you really need.
