Ubuntu MATE 15.04 Beta 2 is now available for official download. This release builds on Ubuntu MATE Beta 1, makes a few changes and fixes a lot of bugs.

As usual preparing this release of Ubuntu MATE has been a team effort. Special thanks to Mike Gabriel, Vlad Orlov and Stefano Karapetsas for putting in a great deal of effort triaging bugs, doing code reviews and creating new upstream MATE Desktop 1.8.x point releases. Thanks guys!

Thanks also to Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre, Colin Watson, Adam Conrad and Daniel Holbach for their patience and guidance that has helped fix and improve Ubuntu MATE.

Known Issues

It is not all good news however. Here are the known issues. All of which affect every Ubuntu flavour.

  • Once installation has finished, and the final Restart button is pressed, the screen freezes and becomes unresponsive. Pressing Enter which would normally do the reboot does nothing.
    • The computer will require a manual power off or reset after the disc has been ejected.
    • LP: 1436816
  • Virtualbox guests will only get a resolution of 640x480
  • It is not possible to install the Virtualbox drivers via the Additional Hardware application.
    • LP: #1434579
    • The workaround is to open a shell and sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-x11.
  • You may not be able to enter your pass phrase if you use full disk encryption.
  • OEM Config is broken.
