The last Ubuntu 9.04 development update was in the middle of December (Alpha 2), but today Mark Shuttleworth's development posse has come out with a new update for the Jaunty Jackalope.

In Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 3 is the latest code based upon the Linux 2.6.28 kernel, X Server 1.6, and EXT4 installation support as we previously detailed. The Ubiquity installer also has home encryption support within this release.

The Ubuntu Wiki page detailing the features and download links for Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 3 can be found here. Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu Studio, and Mythbuntu have all been updated too.
