18.10 ships with the latest GNOME desktop 3.30. This brings performance improvements and new features.

  • GNOME Disks now supports VeraCrypt
  • Settings includes a panel to manage Thunderbolt devices and shows those panels only where the relevant hardware is detected.
  • More shell components are cached in GPU RAM to reduce load and increase FPS count
  • Desktop zoom is now a lot smoother
  • Smoothing of window previews is now dependant on CPU/GPU availability so that busy applications don’t impact the whole system when window previews are visible
  • Added the option to automatically submit error reports to the error reporting dialog window
  • Fingerprint libraries promoted to main to allow unlocking with fingerprints
  • Added snap support to XDG Portals and landed support in Ubuntu
  • The latest version of GS Connect is now packaged in the archive and easily installed

Namun, menurut catatan rilis, ada beberapa masalah yang diketahui antara lain:

  • After installing Cosmic alongside Cosmic, the resized filesystem is corrupted (bug 1798562) It has not been reported to happen if the original operating system is something else than Cosmic.
  • When Ubuntu is reinstalled with preserving existing data, an error message is displayed due to “Could not get lock /target/var/cache/apt/archives/lock” (bug 1798369). The packages installed originally are not reinstalled and must be reinstalled manually. Although the user data is preserved.
  • The screen reader doesn’t read the installer when executed from a live session (bug 1797861), is not auto-enabled on first login even if it’s been enabled during installation (bug 1796275) and the pages of the first run wizard are not read properly (bug 1797868)
  • When disconnecting from VPNs, DNS resolution may become broken requiring a restart of resolved. $ sudo systemctl restart systemd-resolved.service Bug 1797415
  • In an OEM installation, during user setup, the language selected is not taken into account (bug 1798554)
  • The gnome-initial-setup Quit option from the application menu in the top bar doesn’t quit the application. If you want to quit g-i-s use quit from the dock menu instead.
