Just a few days ago, Tollef Fog Heen has announced the release of Edgy Eft Knot 1, which in time, will become Ubutun 6.10, forecasted to be release by October this year.
The pre-releases of Edgy Eft are not recommended for anyone who requires a stable system, and definitely not encouraged for installation on production machine. Knot 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Edgy development cycle, as images that are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD-build or installer bug, while representing very current snapshots of Edgy. Knot 1 are available in Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu versions.
The change from Dapper to Edgy is basically the re-merging of changes from Debian. In the latter, the kernel has been upgraded to 2.6.17. In Ubuntu, the Gnome has been updated to 2.15.4 and GTK+ updated to 2.10.
Bugs be present during this development phase, and if you require a stable Ubuntu operating system, it is recommended that you obtain the latest stable release of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS instead.
Downloads for Edgy Eft Knot 1 (Ubuntu) are available here:
