Bang on schedule, the next release of Ubuntu - 8.10, Intrepid Ibex - hits the download servers ... if you can get it!
I'm still trying to get my 8.10 final download to come in (the download servers are currently being hammered) but the impression I get is that very little has changed since the RC that I looked at a few days ago.
- Kernel 2.6.27
- X.Org 7.4
- GNOME 2.24.1 (KDE 4.1.2 for Kubuntu, with 3.5.10 also available)
- OpenOffice.org 2.4.1
- Firefox 3.0.3
One thing that struck me when I was downloading the .ISO file is that the download options have increased. Not only do you have 32-bit and 64-bit desktop and server flavors, but there's also a MID USB image available for small devices utilizing Low Power Intel Architecture, such as A1xx and Atom processors (minimum 128MB or RAM required). There was also a sub-700MB mobile image available for netbooks of the RC release of 8.10, but I've yet to see this appear on the download servers for the final release.
Anyone out there managed to bring in 8.10 yet?
