The latest long-term support version of Ubuntu Linux - Focal Fossa - has been released with nice features for desktop, server, and cloud users including kernel lockdown mode, ExFat support and the Wireguard VPN.

As expected, Canonical has released the newest version of its Ubuntu Linux distribution, Ubuntu 20.04. This long-term-support (LTS) version is more than just the latest version of one of the most popular Linux distributions; it's a major update for desktop, server, and cloud users.

Let's start with the core operating system. Here, you'll find Ubuntu 20.04, aka Focal Fossa, is now based on November 2019's Linux 5.4 kernel. This kernel includes significant new features.
