Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf leaves scary experimentation for next year : Review

The arstechnica portal has published a review of recently released Ubuntu 15.10 'Wily Werewolf'. This review observes that, as usual spring releases, this release does not bring much new features, instead it just brings refinements for existing features. This means, next year will witness for a release that will experiment features like Unity 8 and wayland.

Canonical recently released Ubuntu 15.10, nicknamed Wily Werewolf. In the past, an autumn release of Ubuntu Linux like this would have been more experimental, warranting some caution when updating. Such releases weren't quite update-at-your-own-risk rough, but they were often packed full of new features that were not fully baked. (For example, the now-shuttered Ubuntu One first debuted in 9.10. The Unity desktop became a default in 11.10, and the controversial Amazon search results in the Unity Dash made their debut in 12.10.) Especially compared to the spring .04 releases that tended to be stable (and every two years packaged as Long Term Support releases), autumn was Canonical's time to experiment.
