Not only did Fedora 11 Alpha make it out the door today, but so did the fourth alpha release for Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty Jackalope). Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 4 continues to build upon a bleeding-edge set of Linux packages (though still tracking the Linux 2.6.28 kernel) and has installation support for the EXT4 file-system and new notification capabilities.

The announcement of Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 4 can be found on ubuntu-devel-announce. Additional information about this latest development build can be found on the Ubuntu web-site.

The final release of Ubuntu 9.04 is due out in April.
