Ubuntu 13.04 and paving the way to 14.04 LTS

On the cloud infrastructure side, the expansion of our ecosystem plays well into the diversification we see in technology choices along the cloud stack. Ubuntu now works seamlessly with various products such as Ceph for storage, Floodlight for SDN, and the Canonical-VMWare collaboration links OpenStack compute (Nova) to the ESX hypervisor. Offering a ‘High Availability’ deployment configuration for core OpenStack components such as RabbitMQ and MySQL helps meet service provider requirements for maximum uptime and reliability. We expect this to be extended to other Juju charms in the near future, offering a complete HA environment for cloud infrastructure.

Features:
Window snapping, popularised by the ‘Aero Snap’ feature of Windows 7, is a handy way to quickly display two applications side-by-side without overlapping, or maximise a window without needing to click a button.

For 13.04 a bit of attention has been given to the animation shown on screen to tell you that ‘you’re about to snap’. Developers have changed its appearance from that of a generic orange box spreading outwards to a semi-transparent copy of the window about to be snapped.

New Unity Preview Animations

Unity Previews, introduced last year in Ubuntu 12.10, are a great way to see more information about a search result without needing to open it up fully.

For the latest release the preview reveal animation has been tweaked, and applications icons at the edges of the preview “ghosted” save for the one being previewed.

Ubuntu desktop is the centralised ‘Online Accounts‘ dashboard.
Originally planned to arrive on the desktop last year is this – the new Ubuntu One Sync Menu. With a single click you can see whether you’re online; share a file; or check the status of recently uploaded files.
Ubuntu’s Bluetooth panel menu has been jazzed up with new toggle for turning on/off Bluetooth and visibility.
A core goal for Ubuntu 13.04 is to get Ubuntu running on a Nexus 7 tablet. To be clear, this is not going to be a tablet Unity interface running on the 8/16GB Nexus 7ubuntunexus7-large_001
But thanks to an inspired decision last October, Ubuntu 13.04 will use a mobile device as reference for tuning the core of Ubuntu. This will result into a smooth, snappy, and faster experience.
