So finally, after a long waiting and suspicious claims about postponing the release date, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS codenamed “Bionec Beaver” was officially released yesterday by Canonical.
The new release suffered mainly from two bugs which could’ve postponed the release date if not fixed on time:
The GNOME Shell memory leak bug, which is an upstream bug that existed for years causing GNOME Shell’s memory usage to increase dramatically over time when performing some actions on the interface. A Ubiquity (Ubuntu installer) bug that prevented users from accessing the live session (The “try Ubuntu” option) when booting from the live image.
