Unity 8 launch delayed by Canonical

Plan of Canonical, which is behind the popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, to provide customers with multiplatform applications, based on the principle that they code it once, and the application can then smoothly run on the desktop and mobile devices has been temporarily postponed.

This feature is implemented in the new Canonical's graphical interface Unity 8, which is able to freely run applications in the desktop version of Ubuntu distributions and versions of the same distribution for smart phones and tablets. But Canonical due to certain security issues decided to postpone the presentation of the Unity 8 interface. Also, there is some concern that cross-platform applications do not look as good as native desktop applications.

The proposed six-month delay in the presentation of Unity 8 interface will be used to improve the features and looks of the multiplatform applications.
