Ubuntu is making great progress and is heading full speed to the release candidate. The final version of Ubuntu 11.10 is expected to be released on October 13, 2011.
The Ubuntu team has announced today the release of Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2.
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 fixing bugs and introducing a couple of new features as we polish up for the release.
Some of the new features now available are:
- A new set of community supported ARM architecture images will be available between now and the release. The armel+ac100 for the Toshiba ac100 netbook is available for download now, and armel+mx5 targeted at the Freescale i.MX53 Quick Start development board will be available in one of the upcoming dailies.
- GNOME got updated to current unstable version (3.1.92) on its way to GNOME 3.2
- OneConf has now been integrated into the Ubuntu Software Center to help keep your installed applications in sync between computers.
