• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient. If you can't find what you're looking for here, check the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis.
  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Pop!_OS is a Linux distribution by System76, a Linux-based desktop hardware OEM. It is based on Ubuntu, with many enhancements specific to our vision of the desktop, and provides an optimal platform for our hardware, which is thoroughly tested throughout each release. These weekly posts highlight the developments that have been made each week in Pop!_OS.
Weeks of April 08-19, 2018
As we missed last week’s post, this week will contain the progress made in both weeks. The Pop!_OS 19.04 release on the 18th was the main focus for the last two weeks. Although we tried to get `pop-upgrade` ready in time for the release, the feature is being pushed back to the end of the month. Those wanting to upgrade now can continue to use the existing tools for upgrading, mentioned in the System76 support docs.

The upgrade to 19.04 looks largely successful and the hard work put in has paid off. I wanted to mention one other major new change to Settings that I think is a fantastic improvement. The "Applications" menu and control is a great addition to the desktop. Also the inclusion of Network Manager Connection Editor, which GNOME had made less prominent and only accessed by running nm-connection-editor. It is now included in the system program folder and renamed "Advanced Network Configuration".

Pictured below is the new Applications control in Settings.
Note: The three dot button on the title bar will give quick access to keyboard shortcuts.
