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.
