Ubuntu 19.10 available

Ubuntu 19.10 is now available with the vaguely unwieldy name "EoanErmine" based on kernel 5.3 and GNOME 3.34. An interesting improvement in this release is their expanded cross-compilation toolchain allowing building for s390x, ppc64le, riscv and ARM targets, which hopefully will expand the number of ports and pre-compiled packages on this platform; another interesting one is experimental ZFS on root support. Although an official desktop release of Ubuntu for ppc64le still doesn't exist, the release notes do say that "[t]he ppc64el [sic] ... live-server ISO images are now considered production ready and are the preferred media to install Ubuntu Server on bare metal" (excellent!), so download the server ISO, and then for your workstation you can convert it to desktop Ubuntu.
