Mark Shuttleworth has revealed the codename for Ubuntu 13.10.

Canonical will be sticking to a six-month release cycle for now with Ubuntu Linux and now that Ubuntu 13.04, the "Raring Ringtail", has been released it's time for 13.10. Mark Shuttleworth revealed this morning the Ubuntu 13.10 codename.

Ubuntu 13.10 is to be called the Saucy Salamander per Mark's blog post.

Mark explains his reasoning for the 13.10 codename, due out in October, "The salamander is one of nature’s most magical creatures; they are a strong indicator of a pristine environment, which is a fitting way to describe the new world emerging around Ubuntu Touch – new applications, a new SDK, a gorgeous clean interface. You’ll find salamanders swimming in clear, clean upstreams – which is exactly what’s forming around Ubuntu’s mobile ecosystem. It’s a way of saying ‘thank you’ to the tremendous community that has joined the effort to create a single unified experience from phone to PC, with tons of crisp and stylish core apps made by people from all over the world who want to build something fast, fresh and free. And we’re saucy too – life’s to short to be stodgy or stilted. Our work is our play – we make amazing things for a huge audience, we find space for pretty much every flavour of interface and do it with style."
