Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot first beta is out

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 1.

Codenamed “Oneiric Ocelot”, 11.10 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs. This release introduces a new set images called Ubuntu Core. These include a minimal software and are can be used as the basis for customized Ubuntu distributions and products.

The DVD images have been slimmed down to 1.5GB, retaining a complete set of language packs, for faster downloading and use on USB drives.

With Ubuntu 11.10, we also welcome a new Ubuntu family member, Lubuntu!
Lubuntu, together with Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu, and Ubuntu Studio also reached Beta 1 status today.

Remember before you start:

  • Don’t make the update on a production environment
  • You can directly upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 (“Oneiric Ocelot”) from Ubuntu 11.04 (“Natty Narwhal”) only.
  • Be sure that you have all updates applied to your current version of Ubuntu before you upgrade.
  • Before upgrading it is recommended that you read the release notes for Ubuntu 11.10 Beta, which document caveats and workarounds for known issues in this version.
