Zorin OS 15.3: News and Downloads

What’s new in Linux

The first piece of news is about the distribution base. This distribution is based on Ubuntu, so each version is based on a specific version of the canonical distribution. So this new version 15.3 is based on Ubuntu 18.04.5 , the latest update to the 18.04 LTS branch, which will offer users support until 2023. This update changed the version of the Linux kernel used since it went from 5.3 to 5.4 … Due to this, this distribution will offer all users the best compatibility with the latest hardware, even if it is prepared for the 11th generation Intel CPU.

In addition to changes in the core of Zorin OS, its developers have also made a number of changes at the software level. For example, this new version updated most of the apps included by default in their most up-to-date versions so that users can enjoy their news and security improvements. Of course, some users were somewhat disappointed to see that other important applications such as LibreOffice, have not been updated to the latest version (7.0), but chose the latest version of the previous branch (6.4.6). However, if we want to, we can perform a manual update without any problems.

Finally, this new version also includes a large number of fixes and optimizations this will improve the performance and overall stability of the operating system.
