Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn has been out for less than two months but tomorrow we will see the first alpha (or in this case it's called a "Tribe") release of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. We used the daily build of Ubuntu and Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon to do some exploring prior to the release of Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 1 tomorrow morning. While there is still many changes that will come prior to the October release of Gutsy, things are looking good for the Ubuntu camp this fall.

In the second development release for Myah OS 3.0 is Xfce updates to version 4.4.1, Beryl 0.2.1, Linux 18.104.22.168, GCC 4.1.2, and many other packages received updates. Before the official release of Myah OS 3.0 stable developers would still like to get the system well tested for any bugs or other issues, make improvements to Myah's Package Management System, and finally create some sort of Linux LiveCD installer for Myah OS. If you have some extra time during the week, Myah OS 3.0 Tech Demo 2 is worth checking out.
