We’re preparing to release Kubuntu 11.10, the Oneiric Ocelot, in October 2011. With this beta pre-release, you can see where we are with our bug fixing and polishing of the official release. Read here for feature highlights and documentation of known issues.
NOTE: This is an beta pre-release.
Work towards next month's planned release of Kubuntu 11.10 reached another milestone today with the release of Kubuntu 11.10 Beta 1. The standard Kubuntu KDE Plasma workspaces for desktops and netbooks and associated applications are largely feature complete. More details and download information may be found here.
After a break to package KDE SC 4.7.0, the second alpha release of Kubuntu Oneiric has been released. It features the latest stable release of KDE's Plasma workspace and applications (4.7) and KDEPIM 4.7. It also features an updated Amarok and provides the Muon Software Center and Muon Package manager by default. More details may be found here.
