Final release date: 14 October
Impish Beta brings updated versions based on GNU C Library 2.34, GCC 11, LLVM 13, and GNU Binutils 2.37, and a current 5.13 kernel. This Ubuntu Server image features the next-generation Subiquity server installer. Ubuntu Bugmaster Brian Murray talked about the final beta version, saying,
“The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper image build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 21.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on October 14, 2021.”
The desktop image enables users to try Ubuntu without changing their computer and install it permanently later. The server install allows users to install Ubuntu permanently on a computer for use as a server.
