The release ISOs for Ubuntu 24.04 "Noble Numbat" are now available! Ubuntu 24.04 is an exciting Long Term Support (LTS) update with this new Linux distribution release being powered by the Linux 6.8 kernel, making use of Netplan for networking on the desktop, features the modernized desktop OS installer, various performance optimizations, and a ton of new features.

Ubuntu 24.04 LTS is a really great release with all of its fresh software packages, the new desktop installer has evolved rather well, the GNOME 46 desktop is being used as the default desktop, and a variety of other refinements. There have already been dozens of Phoronix articles covering Ubuntu 24.04 including preliminary benchmarks and more. I'll also have out some interesting Ubuntu 24.04 LTS desktop benchmarks in the coming hours.
