TL;DR GNOME will have a system-wide dark style preference in 42. Please update your apps to support it, see the instructions.

Will gnome 42 reach the next Ubuntu LTS?

I wouldn’t doubt it, it is set to release by the next 6 months (if my memory doesn’t fail me), and the next LTS from Ubuntu is still far to come, only in early 2022.

next 6 months does include early 2022

you know what, I’m dumb lol

depends on when the feature freeze for the LTS is

Now that I think of it I highly doubt it will, if the next LTS releases on schedule (the .04 has a reason after all), it’d be REALLY close to the next GNOME release, so I think we’d only see it on Ubuntu with their 22.10 release.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
