With 19.10 now released, I thought it would be interesting and informative to look ahead to 20.04, which as an LTS release is also going to be much more important to a lot of users.
Critically, 20.04 will be the last LTS before 16.04 reaches EOL. So if you've been holding onto 16.04 to avoid all the GTK3 brokenness - which I know more than a few of us have been - that bridge is about to be burned forever.
So, what are the Top 3 changes you want to see in 20.04?
The ground rules:
- You only get 3 entries. This isn't about your personal customised Linux distro, but what's genuinely important to you. It's also a way for the community to potentially let the devs know where the pain is as a consensus.
- If one of your wishes is a bugfix though and you have filed the bug in Launchpad (or marked it as "Affects me too" there) then it doesn't count towards your total. Link to the bug in your post so that others can "upvote" it there.
- If your bug gets fixed or your wish is granted, you can add a new entry to replace it.
- Screenshots are helpful for both bugs and features, especially to let others understand the topic and encourage them supporting you. Log files belong in either specific Support threads or on Launchpad though, or nobody's going to read your wall-of-text nightmare of a post.
- Linking to posts in the Support forum is fine, if you've already posted about an issue in there.
My guess is that the bulk of MATE's users would rather see the focus stay on papercuts etc for another release more than new features (because, let's face it, if we wanted new gimmicks and didn't care about quality, we'd be running a different DE in the first place!) but still, that's just a guess. Let's see how wrong I am!
