Disco Dingo

Disco Dingo is the Ubuntu codename for version 19.04 of the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system. Officially released on April 18, 2019, Disco Dingo follows the Cosmic Cuttlefish (v18.10) release. Unlike the predecessor to Cosmic Cuttlefish, Bionic Beaver, which was a Long-Term Support (LTS) release designed to be supported for five years, both Disco Dingo and Cosmic Cuttlefish will only be supported for nine months.

As a result, the Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo release will be supported through January 21, while Bionic Beaver will continue to be supported until April 2023.

What Exactly Is a Disco Dingo?

Disco is a term that refers to a style of music or a club or party that plays disco music. Disco clubs were popular in the 1970s but still hold some appeal with smaller audiences today. A dingo is a wild or partially wild dog indigenous to Australia and easily identified by its tan-colored coat.

The Disco Dingo release of Ubuntu Linux is expected to be followed by the Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine release, which is on track to debut in October 2019.
