Ubuntu 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla) released

Brian Murray-5
Codenamed "Groovy Gorilla", 20.10 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 5.8 based Linux kernel, and
our default toolchain has moved to gcc 10 with glibc 2.32. Additionally,
there is now a desktop variant of the Raspberry Pi image for Raspberry
Pi 4 4GB and 8GB.

Ubuntu Desktop 20.10 introduces GNOME 3.38, the fastest release yet with
significant performance improvements delivering a more responsive
Experience. Additionally, the desktop installer includes the ability to
connect to Active Directory domains.

Ubuntu Server 20.10 integrates recent innovations from key
virtualization and infrastructure projects like QEMU 5.0, libvirt 6.6
and OpenStack Victoria. Ubuntu Server now ships Telegraf, the metrics
collecting agent that together with Prometheus and Grafana form the
basis of a strong and reliable logging, monitoring and alerting solution
that can be deployed on Ubuntu systems.

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 under the
Official Flavours section:

Maintenance updates will be provided for 9 months for all flavours
releasing with 20.10.
