Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Beta 2 on April 8th

The next ubuntu release, 10.04 is planned to be released on April 29th 2010. While the date is closing by rapidly, the development process is right on its track.

With a first beta release mid-March which allowed to spot some nasty bugs of all kind, the community is now working towards a second beta. Beta 2 is already past “freeze”, the point at which any additional change to the core packages of the distribution is subject to a process known as “freeze exception” for which good motivations must exist and thorough review is performed ┬áby the release managers to make sure nothing that works is affected by the proposed change.

Needless to say, Lucid Lynx beta 2 will be a much more stable version with many bugfixes when its released on April 8th.

Areas in which you can still help at this points are:

  • installing beta 2 and reporting bugs which are not yet reported or adding information to the existing report that might help track it down
  • participating in the translation process through the translators groups until April 22nd.

The next step is to get a release candidate version on the 22nd for a final release of Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS on April 29th! Get involved!
