Canonical's Jos Boumans has sent out an e-mail on the Ubuntu development mailing list to outline some of the new plans going forward for Ubuntu Server with the 10.04 release. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 came out just nine days ago, but Jos is hoping to incorporate these new Ubuntu Server changes prior to the Alpha 3 release that is scheduled for the end of February.

To be worked on for Ubuntu Server 10.04 Alpha 3 is migrating from MySQL 5.0 to MySQL 5.1, an upgrade to Eucalyptus 1.6.2, PHP/Python/Perl libraries for Amazon's cloud computing platform, integrating Puppet and Etckeeper, boothooks and user based configuration for UEC/EC2, and various QA improvements.

For the Ubuntu Server 10.04 release the community also hopes to provide Asterisk integration, an Ubuntu Cluster Stack, Ubuntu Server Containers for LXC and OpenVZ, and integration of Amavisd-new, Spamassassin, and Clamav.

All of the details on this new Ubuntu Server work along with how you can get involved can be found in this mailing list message. Earlier this week we also reported on a new low-latency Ubuntu Server proposal.
