What’s Coming In Ubuntu 8.10: Intrepid Ibex

,----[ Quote ]
| There are other more technical upgrades being included with Ibex, such as the
| improved Samba networking services, GNOME 2.24, Xorg 7.4 (which is said to
| completely eliminate the need for the xorg.conf file; no more manual tweaking
| necessary), and a lot of other minor things (like an eject button being
| placed next to removable/ejectable devices). Oh, and don’t forget Linux
| Kernel 2.6.27 which is a big leap forward in the hardware compatibility
| department. So, not a whole lot on the surface that most users will be able
| to see and appreciate, but there is a LOT under the hood that is being
| upgraded which will provide new users with a better first impression of the
| OS than before.
|
| Ubuntu Linux 8.10 is scheduled to be released October 30th.

Gentoo : First thoughts after the switch

| Another difference with mainstream distros : at the end of the installation
| process, you have a barebone linux installation. You won’t get that fancy
| KDE/Gnome/Whatever desktop you might be expecting. You mostly have to already
| know what you need / want (with or without Xorg ? Which windows manager ?
| with KDE or Gnome or none ? and so on)

First Look at Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| The next version of Ubuntu's free Linux operating system, dubbed "Intrepid
| Ibex," is due out Oct. 30, but the beta release is up for grabs. Although the
| desktop hasn't been reshaped, the features tweaked just a little bit, and
| most of the work focused on compatibility and usability (not that those are
| bad things, by any means), there are still some neat new tools and tweaks
| that are worth checking out. Read on for our picture-filled take on the new
| Ubuntu.

Ubuntu 8.10 Beta Screenshot Tour

| The beta version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid Ibex), which
| is scheduled for release in late October this year, arrived a few minutes ago
| and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest changes in
| the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the sixth alpha, which brought
| Firefox 3.0.2, Samba 3.2 and GNOME 2.24 Beta 2, this version comes with the
| final and stable GNOME 2.24 desktop, a brand new wallpaper, Firefox 3.0.3,
| PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for Totem (the default movie
| player in Ubuntu). But first, let's take a quick look at the included
| applications:
|
| · Mozilla Firefox 3.0.3
| · OpenOffice.org 2.4.1
