I heard that Ubuntu 14.04 will feature TRIM by default on SSDs. What I would like to know is that if in the current daily builds it is already activated.

Also, it would be appreciated a way to verify if it is indeed working.

Ubuntu +1 questions are off-topic here. However it looks like it is, according to the last line of this post. "After some extensive testing Ubuntu developer Martin Pitt announced on Google+ that “SSDs are now being trimmed automatically out of the box." – TrailRider Dec 22 '13 at 21:14

TRIM will be run by a cronjob by default as announced by Martin Pitt. This will be done weekly (as can be seen in the patch) and will be perfectly configurable. Automatic TRIMimg will be enabled.

Extra info: "Ubuntu users with Solid-State Drives have something extra to look forward to in April’s release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: TRIM support is finally enabled by default." – Rinzwind Dec 31 '13 at 11:04
