As a reminder, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr LTS (which will be released on the 17th of April 2014) will come with some important changes and new features, including: Kernel 3.13.8 as default, a feature for minimizing the windows by single clicking the launcher, locally integrated menus (a feature also present on GNOME 3.12), improved shutdown dialogs, a new feature that allows the users to increase the volume up to 200%, a rewritten Unity 7 with support for window filtering by title, Unity Control Center as a replacement for GNOME Control Center, and of course, a new default wallpaper and 11 other pretty wallpapers submitted and voted by the community. Also, the Login Screen and the Lock Screen have been made to look identical.
