Welcome to the Ubuntu MATE 20.04 Pre-release Testing thread.
This week begins the Ubuntu Testing Week for 20.04 and thus is an appropriate time to get the Ubuntu MATE community involved in testing as well. For the 19.10 release we had a Beta Testing thread that generated a lot of responses and got some eye-balls looking at things the Dev and QA Teams might have missed.
Our hope is that we can get a similar response (hopefully an even better one) to this thread.
20.04 Focal Fosa 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 current version of the daily build 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.
You can also upgrade to the developmental version on your system (make sure to backup first!).
Alt-F2 then enter
Feedback on the upgrade process is very valuable and we would like to hear your experiences.
