The Wiki with the project schedule already shows the code name to be used and the likely release date of the LTS version of the system.
With the launch of Ubuntu 19.10 Eon Ermine scheduled for Thursday (17), the Canonical team is already working on the next LTS version of the system.
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS will be the 32th release of the operating system made by Canonical, which started in late 2004, with the release of Ubuntu 4.10 Warty Warthog.
The new code name that baptize version 20.04 LTS, will be the Focal Fossa. That's right my friends, this is the codename used. But you might be wondering, what would be a pit?
It was a mammal that inhabits the island of Madagascar, reminding (far away) a cat, he also carnivorous. The kitten in the photo below.
Now, because they chose that name, it's really asking the marketing people.
Already the release date, according to Canonical Release Schedule, is scheduled for April 23, 2020. A Beta Freeze is scheduled for a Monday, April 2 (phew after April Fools' Day).
We can look forward to this new Ubuntu LTS, GNOME 3.36, Kernel 5.5, Mesa driver 20.0, updated Xorg (and perhaps with improvements for hybrid notebooks), the latest NVIDIA drivers and ZFS for the system. (specifically by default in the system root).
