- The kernel and graphics found in 19.04 have been backported to 18.04. This is part of the Hardware-Enablement-Stack release and 18.04 users who install the HWE (see later) are automatically upgraded to the next kernel and graphics stack approx 3-4 months after an interim release. So 18.04.2 users will see the new packages appearing now.

HWEThe Ubuntu LTS enablement (also called HWE or Hardware Enablement) stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing Ubuntu LTS releases. These enablement stacks can be installed manually but are also available when installing with Ubuntu LTS point release media such as 18.04.3 We would stress – if everything is working as you expect, there is no need to change to the HWE. If you need newer graphics for applications and games, or if you are moving your installation to newer hardware then you may wish to consider uplifting your installation to the HWE. To install the HWE (only applies to everyone who installed at 18.04 and 18.04.1):
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04
32BIT ISO32 bit support is something we have committed to support for the duration of the LTS period. The vast majority of computers today will run the 64bit ISO just fine – so please use that first. 32bit HWE intel graphics may cause issues with either booting or after installation.
