1 19:00 < nhaines> Welcome to the Ubuntu California meeting for April 21st! 2 19:00 < nhaines> Tonight's agenda is available here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/19April21 3 19:01 < nhaines> #topic Announcements 4 19:01 < nhaines> Let's mix things up a bit and start with the announcements. :) 5 19:01 < nhaines> Ubuntu 19.10 is out! Yay! 6 19:01 < b-yeezi> 19.04? 7 19:02 < nhaines> Since I set up a new writing computer about two months ago, I've been running 10.10 with the minimal install and a few snaps. It's been really solid. 8 19:02 < nhaines> b-yeezi: yup! Not sure where .10 came from. 9 19:02 < nhaines> Ubuntu 19.04 is out. And it is quite nice. Linux 5.0 kernel, better GNOME Shell improvements. Latest LibreOffice. 10 19:04 < b-yeezi> python3.7 is good (at least for me( 11 19:04 < nhaines> The next release cycle, "eaon," will begin to set the groundwork for the LTS release after that. So to have 19.04 be so solid is a pretty start! 12 19:05 < nhaines> #topic Upcoming events 13 19:05 < nhaines> Are there any events happening in the near future we should know about? 14 19:05 < nhaines> This is a great time to thinking about release parties, which can be as simple as meeting up at a local restaurant for dinner. 15 19:07 < b-yeezi> I am a member of the San Diego Python user group. I'm going to suggest having an install party 16 19:07 < b-yeezi> Which I would lead, but if anyone else is in SD area, I'd be happy to share the load 17 19:08 < nhaines> It can be a good excuse for a get together! Ubuntu 19.04 ships with Python 3.7.3. 18 19:08 < nhaines> If you do decide to have a release party, be sure to list it at https://gettogether.community/ and announce it on the mailing list. If you have any questions or need any help, please be sure to let us know! 19 19:09 < b-yeezi> Is a release party separate from an install party? 20 19:10 < nhaines> A release party is when people get together to say "yay, this thing exists!" An install party is when people get together specifically to try and get a thing running on hardware. 21 19:10 < nhaines> They don't have to be separate, but release parties are much easier to organize. :) 22 19:10 < b-yeezi> OK 23 19:10 < nhaines> #topic Agenda 24 19:11 < nhaines> The agenda for this meeting is empty. 25 19:11 < nhaines> #topic Other business 26 19:11 < nhaines> Anything else going on we should know about? 27 19:14 < nhaines> Okay, we'll keep this meeting short due to the holiday. 28 19:15 < nhaines> Feel free to discuss more on our mailing list, which you can subscribe to at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-us-ca 29 19:15 < nhaines> Our next meeting is scheduled for May 19th, and I'll see everyone there! 30 19:15 < nhaines> Take care, everyone. :) 31 19:15 < nhaines> #endmeeting
