  • Power profile picker in the user menu to quickly toggle between maximum and balanced performance and battery saver modes.
  • NVIDIA Optimus switching built into the user menu

  • Indented system menu sub-menu items for better information hierarchy
  • Pop! artwork in Pop!_Shop
  • Full disk encryption by default
  • USB Flasher utility to create startup drives
  • Better contrast in the light version of the theme

Testing the new installer and Optimus switching is our priority for this test release. Please test installing on a variety of hardware and provide feedback on any issues you encounter. If you run into any bugs, you can file them at https://github.com/pop-os/pop/issues.

Known issues:

  • Choosing a language other that English does not change the current GNOME session
  • After installing, initial setup may hang. Reboot by holding the power button to complete setup
