Ubuntu Kylin 16.04 LTS was officially launched as part of yesterday’s massive Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) release, and it introduces many enhancements, updated components, new tweaks and under-the-hood optimizations, as well as a brand-new Unity7 design with the Launcher placed at the bottom of the screen, by default.
Powered by the same long-term supported kernel as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Linux 4.4, Ubuntu Kylin 16.04 is also an LTS release supported for five years with critical security fixes and software updates. The Ubuntu Kylin development team proved to be very ingenious this cycle, and we need to thank them for the ability to move the Unity Launcher at the bottom of the screen.
Release highlights of Ubuntu Kylin 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) include a more concise and user-friendly lock screen and display manager, Ubuntu Kylin Software Center as the default graphical package manager, a revamped version of the China Weather Indicator, updated Sogou Chinese Pinyin input method, and the latest Kingsoft WPS office suite.
