Hello Linux Geeksters. Canonical has working a lot lately at Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, which is scheduled for release in the stable form, in April 2014. Recently, Kernel 3.13.1 stable has been implemented as default, in order to extend the hardware compatibility.

Ubuntu 14.04 Has Been Updated Yet Again, Running On Kernel 3.13.1

Canonical’s plan is to integrate the latest stable version available of Kernel 3.13 on the final version of Ubuntu 14.04, but they may switch to Kernel 3.14, if it will reach stability until April.

Also, a new version of the cairo version has been implemented in Ubuntu 14.04, in order to support high-resolution displays.

Canonical might implement a lot of new features in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, including the adoption of Qt 5.2, GRUB 2.02 Beta 2, and the torrent lens that enables the users to search for torrents, directly from the Unity Dash. Also, Mate 1.6 and Pepper Flash Player have been added to the default repositories of Ubuntu 14.04, while Unity 7 has been rewritten in GTK3 and Ubuntu 14.04 GNOME uses Nautilus 3.10.1 (optimized by Canonical) by default . Also, Boot Repair may be added to the default Ubuntu 14.04 ISO image, in order to help the users fix the boot loader easily.
