Updated 32-bit and 64-bit images of Ubuntu for the Raspberry Pi family of devices have just been released. Innovators around the world can now download 32-bit images for the Raspberry Pi 2, 3 and 4, as well as 64-bit images for the Raspberry Pi 3 and 4.

With the new images, USB ports are now fully functional out of the box on the 4GB RAM version of the Raspberry Pi 4. A kernel bug was limiting our official support to the 1GB and 2GB versions of the board. A temporary workaround was proposed to enable USB on the 4GB RAM version. This bug is now fixed, and the limitation lifted.

Raspberry Pi is a first-class platform priority for Ubuntu. Next, we will deliver Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu Core on the Raspberry Pi boards. We’re working with the Raspberry Pi foundation to have an officially supported image of Ubuntu available at every new release of a Raspberry Pi board. We will make developers’ favorite operating system always available on makers’ favorite single-board computer. We encourage developers and tinkerers to explore the possibilities that Ubuntu brings to the Raspberry Pi, such as edge computing, Kubernetes clusters, and more.

Last, but not least, we are grateful for the active feedback we continuously receive from the community of Ubuntu users. This feedback fuels our effort to deliver great Ubuntu – not only in the cloud or on desktops, but also on the Raspberry Pi.
