Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) released

Adam Conrad-3
Codenamed "Disco Dingo", 19.04 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

The Ubuntu kernel has been updated to the 5.0 based Linux kernel,
our default toolchain has moved to gcc 8.3 with glibc 2.29, and we've
also updated to openssl 1.1.1b and gnutls 3.6.5 with TLS1.3 support.

Ubuntu Desktop 19.04 introduces GNOME 3.32 with increased performance,
smoother startup animations, quicker icon load times and reduced CPU+GPU
load.  Fractional scaling for HiDPI screens is now available in Xorg
and Wayland.

Ubuntu Server 19.04 integrates recent innovations from key open
infrastructure projects like OpenStack Stein, Kubernetes, and Ceph with
advanced life-cycle management for multi-cloud and on-prem operations,
from bare metal, VMware and OpenStack to every major public cloud.

The newest Ubuntu Budgie, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE,
Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu are also being released today.

More details can be found for these at their individual release notes:

Maintenance updates will be provided for 9 months for all flavours
releasing with 19.04.
