It's release day today for Ubuntu 12.10
, which was developed under the animal codename of "Quantal Quetzal", and boasts many new features.
Ubuntu 12.10 can be fetched shortly from Ubuntu.com
and there will be Quantal releases of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and the other derivatives.
By now all faithful Phoronix readers should be familiar with the Ubuntu 12.10 features, but if you're not, then see the earlier 12.10 articles
as there's a ton of new features and changes -- for both better and worse
. The Ubuntu Server 12.10 release has also saw a lot of work too, just not the Ubuntu Linux desktop.
Next out of the Ubuntu Zoo will be 13.04 Raring Ringtail
