Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet will relesed on April 2015

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.

According to Wikipedia, the vervet is a monkey native to Africa, which was introduced in the US, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, among others.
Canonical releases new versions of Ubuntu every 6 months ( in April and in October), which makes new versions of the operating system contains latest updates to kernels, UI and bug fixes. For two three years Ubuntu is trying for Operating System convergence in every devices. That is one Ubuntu for may devices from TV, Smartphone to Computers and Servers. So 2014 and 2015 could be big years for the operating system because Windows 10 is already in place with the convergence ideas. Google is trying with both Android and ChromeOS to chase the convergence dream. Also new products like google glass and Android smartwatch are entering into the scenario.  Ubuntu is already relatively popular in the server and desktop operating system spaces, the first smartphones running Ubuntu software are expected to ship soon.
