For anyone excited to see more Unity love, or simply an updated out-of-the-box package set Intel Sandy Bridge will work on Ubuntu, the first alpha of Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Oncelot" has been released. With the features only recently having been defined, Ubuntu 11.10 Alpha 1 doesn't offer up too much, but it's a start.

Anyone interested in learning more can read the Alpha 1 release announcement. The various flavors of Oneiric Alpha 1 are available here, including for the ARM architecture.

There's also been a few other noteworthy distribution updates this week:

- Scientific Linux 6.1 Alpha 1 is now available. While CentOS 6.0/6.1 still struggles to get released, the Scientific Linux community that's rebuilding the Red Hat Enterprise Linux packages from source continues to stay up to speed. Scientific Linux 6.1 is their rebuild of the recently released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1. Oracle has also released Oracle Linux 6.1 as their RHEL 6.1 rebuild and with their "Oracle unbreakable kernel."
- Mageia 1. Last year when many developers of Mandriva parted ways with their distribution formerly known as Mandrake, they created Mageia. Yesterday marked the first stable release of the Mageia Linux operating system.
- For those left in the Mandriva camp, they released Mandriva 2011 Beta 3.
- As already mentioned, there was also the release of openSUSE 12.1 Milestone 1.
