Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 1

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.

Yoper Linux 3.0 RC1 LiveCD

When we heard Yoper Linux 3.0 RC1 was available, we immediately started downloading it. Yoper has been quiet recently -- to the fact where it dropped to the 69th position at DistroWatch -- but Yoper 3.0 Limenite looks promising. Making up the first release candidate of Yoper 3.0 is the Linux 2.6.21.1 kernel, the Con Kolivas patchset, X.Org 7.2, KDE 3.5.6, and other cutting edge packages. After trying out the Yoper 3.0 RC1 LiveCD it does look extremely promising, but there is definitely some room left for improvement.

Ubuntu Studio v7.04

Ubuntu Studio is an Ubuntu incarnation that focuses on software packages for the multimedia creation crowd. Found in Ubuntu Studio 7.04 are a horde of packages for graphic, video, and audio editing. The Ubuntu Studio theme has went black in a radical turn away from the traditional Ubuntu orange. If you are into multimedia editing and mastering, Ubuntu Studio is definitely worth checking out. In Ubuntu 7.10 all of the Ubuntu Studio packages should be available in the main Canonical repository.
