The latest version of Ubuntu, shipping with the Linux 5.19 kernel, has just landed, promising a slew of improvements for developers and administrators, as well as the latest toolchains for Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems.
Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth says the company is “focused on enabling a new generation of easy-to-use and highly secure IoT” and that version 22.10 brings numerous optimizations and additional features that deliver on that promise.
22.10, codenamed Kinetic Kudu, replaces 22.04.1 and brings toolchain updates for Ruby, Go, GCC, and Rust.

Further improvements to OpenSSH aim to increase efficiency by reducing the memory requirements of Ubuntu Server on smaller devices such as laptops and virtual machines.
A new tool to help developers debug programs that ship with Ubuntu should also help smooth things out.
Microcontroller users such as B. Developers running Raspberry Pi Pico W machines can now use MicroPython, and support for embedded displays like the Inky eInk HAT series on the Pi has also been improved.
Ubuntu management with monitoring, administration, patching and compliance reporting just got better with Landscape 22.10 – currently in beta form – which the company says will simplify home management on computers with Arm and Arm-based processors.
Canonical also says that “RISC-V processors and hardware are also supported in this release,” expanding the reach of Landscape 22.10.
In terms of usability, improvements to GNOME 43 – codenamed Guadalajara – have been engineered to increase performance and consistency, including a new quick settings panel for commonly used toggles like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even dark mode.
Video calls on laptops also now benefit from “an advance in Bluetooth connectivity” via the Pipewire audio platform.
