Da ricordare che Canonical ha rilasciato anche le prime build di Ubuntu Touch basate sul sistema operativo Ubuntu 13.04, destinate a smartphone e tablet.
Non si tratta ancora di versioni stabili del software, dunque poco adatte all'utilizzo di tutti i giorni, ma ottime per dare uno sguardo alle potenzialità della piattaforma.
Sono solamente quattro al momento i dispositivi supportati in via ufficiale: Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus e Nexus 4. In questo video Ubuntu Touch viene testato sul tablet da 7 pollici nato dalla collaborazione tra Google e ASUS, per verificare il comportamento di alcune applicazioni di base come la calcolatrice, il calendario o il browser per la navigazione Web, mentre tastiera, fotocamera e lettore multimediale risultano ancora non funzionanti.
- Unity versione 7.0 risulta ora realmente più leggero e promette soprattutto più stabilità per rendere più performante l’ambiente grafico.
- Un nuovo set di icone per Unity, inclusa quella dedicata alla Dash.
- Nuove icone per Nautilus, Ubuntu Software Center, Software Updater, Selettore area di lavoro (che ora visualizza lo spazio di lavoro attivo) e BFB (il pulsante utilizzato per aprire Dash).
- Cambiamenti in Ubuntu Software Center, nel file manager Nautilus e gestore degli aggiornamenti.
- Blocco schermo.
- Il nuovo kernel Linux 3.8.5 che migliora il supporto alle architetture ARM.
- Aggiornamento software (in primo piano Libre Office versione 4.0 e Mozilla Firfefox 20.0)
- Approdano le nuove quicklist per passare velocemente tra più finestre di un'applicazione.
- Attivare o disattivare nel LWS il tasto che ci permette di avere un'anteprima degli spazi di lavoro (4).
- L'ingresso come derivata ufficiale Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 distribuzione che offre come ambiente desktop predefinito GNOME Shell, molto probabilmente per soddisfare le esigenze di chi –come il sottoscritto- Unity non riesce proprio a digerirlo.
