Just as planned, the first alpha release for Ubuntu 10.04 (the "Lucid Lynx") has arrived. Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 1 is running with the Linux 2.6.32 kernel, X Server 1.7, GNOME 2.29.3, KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 1, and many other package upgrades since the release of Ubuntu 9.10 back in October.

One item worth noting is that Ubuntu 10.04 has completely dropped support for HAL, which will speed up a few areas such as the boot process, but as our early Ubuntu 10.04 benchmarks show, there are some notable performance regressions. Ubuntu 10.04 is going to be a Canonical Long-Term Support (LTS) release, so be sure to give the Lucid Lynx a good testing if you are experimenting with any of the development releases.

Information and downloads for Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 1 is available at Ubuntu.com. Kubuntu, Kubuntu Netbook Remix, Xubuntu, Ubuntu ARM, Ubuntu Server, and Ubuntu Virtualization Server UEC/EC2 have all reached their alpha status too for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid.
