Ubuntu 15.04 will be codenamed “Vivid Vervet”. Ubuntu 14.10 will be released on october 2014 and the codename for the next ubuntu release is announced by Mark Shuttleworth on his official blog. The Ubuntu 15.04 focus on more convergence in computing. A single ubuntu for all internet devices. In his official blog Shuttleworth commented that
This is a time when every electronic thing can be an Internet thing, and that’s a chance for us to bring our platform, with its security and its long term support, to a vast and important field. In a world where almost any device can be smart, and also subverted, our shared efforts to make trusted and trustworthy systems might find fertile ground. So our goal this next cycle is to show the way past a simple Internet of things, to a world of Internet things-you-can-trust.
In my favourite places, the smartest thing around is a particular kind of monkey. Vexatious at times, volant and vogie at others, a vervet gets in anywhere and delights in teasing cats and dogs alike. As the upstart monkey in this business I can think of no better mascot. And so let’s launch our vicenary cycle, our verist varlet, the Vivid Vervet!
But on upcoming Ubuntu 15.04 will not be released with default MIR display driver or a default UNITY 8 UI. Still it is an update for existing ubuntu desktop with latest softwares and kernel. But when time comes hope for good changes.
