I am proud to present to you, the sixth ever Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix release, and second ever Long Term Support release – the 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish!
This release has been two years in the making, and I am so grateful for everyone who helped – through quality assurance/testing, bug squashing, general development, and those across the different Ubuntu teams.
The only thing I’m upset about is that Ubiquity currently does not have a theme set if you are not in the live session with Cinnamon in the background. I had to fix the background and screen tearing issues, so I did not have the time to deal with it. However, rest assured this issue will be fixed in 22.04.1 in August.
This release has officially jumped into the Cinnamon 5x series, as now we are on version 5.2.7. There are a lot of new features in this major version bump (two, including the 5.0.0 release skip), so check out the release notes before upgrading.
As for upgrading; for the first few days it will be disabled. When it is enabled, if you are already on a LTS release, you should be fine. If on a regular biannual release setting, it should also automatically tell you when you can upgrade. When you can do so, just “sudo do-release-upgrade” and fly away. Also, ensure you readd the Ubuntu Cinnamon PPA repositories as they are disabled via updates: “sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntucinnamonremix/all”

That is all for now. Now, let’s Jam out to the Jammy Jellyfish! (Make sure you listen to the community spotify playlist).
