Alright! The new version of Ubuntu was just released this morning, and everything is looking good. System76 users are clear to upgrade immediately!

Just a couple of notes, as always:

  • As usual, we recommend waiting a week or two after the release before attempting a direct upgrade to give time for the servers to cool down.
  • Fresh installs are good to go immediately.
  • Don't forget to install the System76 Driver after installation! Just go to and click the download link to automatically grab the latest version!
  • As a note for users with dedicated graphics cards, the proprietary driver installation is now completed through the Software Sources item in System Settings. The Additional Drivers Utility has been removed.

That should be everything. The direct upgrade instructions are located at: Knowledge76 - Quantal Upgrade.
