Next Release Renamed To Freya

The next release elementary OS, until now codenamed Isis, has a new name : elementary OS Freya.

The OS releases are named after mythological deities and beings ( Jupiter, Luna ).

According to the developers :

While Isis worked well, there is currently an active militant group in Iraq and Syria commonly known as "ISIS" (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria). elementary obviously has no ties to that group—and we don't think people will get us confused—but we want to both recognize the ongoing turmoil and choose a less controversial name.

Freya is a Norse goddess of love and beauty.


Is Freya Released Yet?


  1. Bonjour, Hello!

    Pourquoi ça marche pas sur Freya? Why don't work on Freya? No up button?

    Start dconf Editor and go to org > pantheon > files > preferences and look for toolbar-items in the right pane :

    ['Back', 'Forward', 'ViewSwitcher', 'LocationEntry']

    Change into ['Back', 'Forward', 'Up', 'ViewSwitcher', 'LocationEntry']
