Features and changes

  • New Gnome desktop: The biggest change is the desktop environment. Ubuntu 17.10 is retiring Unity in favour of GNOME, version 3.26.1.
  • New Wayland: The default display server is Wayland, but can also run x.org as a session or on systems that cannot support Wayland.
  • New on screen keyboard: The new Caribou on screen keyboard is paving the way to future touchscreen laptop experience.
  • Same user experience: The familiar Ubuntu experience – from desktop layout to key shortcuts – remains unchanged thanks to themes and extensions.
  • Familiar dock: The dock that has been a staple feature of Ubuntu since 11.04 is still here but can now be moved around left, right or bottom.
  • More customisation: The new settings application lets you easily explore all the possibilities and features of the new desktop.
  • Kernel: Ubuntu 17.10 features the Linux kernel 4.13.
  • Seamless: Upgrading to Ubuntu 17.10 should be seamless from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and 17.04.
  • Swap: The swap is now a file, not a partition that will scale to what your system needs, making it easier to install Ubuntu on any machine.
