    Phoronix: Various Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Decisions From This Week's Summit

    Aside from trying to make Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Python-3-only, Kubuntu developers planning for Xenial, and Mark Shuttleworth's keynote, there's also been a lot of other interesting sessions to happen over the first two days of this week's Ubuntu Online Summit...

    I wish they chose MariaDB 10.1 with the data at rest encryption capability.

      - Qt 5.5 might be the default Qt version even though Qt 5.6 will be a Qt LTS release. There's concern of going for Qt 5.6 since it's not landing until December while Qt 5.6.1 will be close to the April debut of Ubuntu 16.04.

      As an Arch Linux user the way Ubuntu works make me mad... 16.04 will be a LTS release and they will use an non-LTS version of Qt...Meanwhile on Qt on this stage is under rapid developement and every realease brings many bug-fixes...I don't even see any reason to to upgrade from 5.5 to 5.6 the official repositories after the release of Ubuntu 16.04 and give its users all the bug fixes and features that Qt 5.6 will bring...
      I deeply understand KDE developers on posts like this

        Qt WebKit is a vital module with no good alternative, and they're dropping it before LTS... That might have been an argument in Ubuntu devs' decision.

        And KDE devs' complaining falls on deaf ears, it's all their fault for changing minor (5.x -> 5.y) releases like socks and positioning alpha quality software as stable. That indeed jeopardizes all the concepts in software versioning that Ubuntu has been relying on.

        Qt is also releasing minor versions too quickly and not enough bugfix releases.

          Wait, what? Gnome Software? Wasn't Canonical working on its own new store that will work across all form factors from desktop to smartphones?

            Is there any piece of desktop software by Canonical that gained major traction and is widely used by other distributions?

              Couldn't have said it better myself. Hear, hear.

                they are but since no one likes ubuntu software center (it's dead since 2013) and ubuntu 16.04 is agains x with unity 7...

                for Qt, it's not a problem since they already have a ppa for the new version, the big problem with this new ubuntu distro is systemD

                  Wow, I hope unity 7 gets at least some of the new icon pack unity 8 is getting.

                  What's wrong with systemD ? sD is great!

                    Luckily you can easily install a current MariaDB version by using the official repository.
