Welcome to the Ubuntu MATE 20.04 Beta Testing thread.
This week begins the Ubuntu Beta Testing Week for 20.04 and thus is an appropriate time to get the Ubuntu MATE community involved in testing the beta. This is being done in conjunction with our fellow flavors. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuFlavors
20.04 Focal Fossa is an LTS release and will be supported by Ubuntu MATE for 3 years so it's going to be with us for a while.
You can find the beta ISO here:
If you have a spare machine or a virtual machine you can help us test and let us know if there are any issues you encounter; the earlier we know about them the sooner we can address them.
Please take some time and read the Ubuntu MATE 20.04 Release Notes.
You can also upgrade to the developmental version on your system (make sure to backup first!).
To upgrade, press Alt + F2, and type:
Feedback on the upgrade process is very valuable and we would like to hear your experiences.
