Mark Shuttleworth has announced at the Atlanta Linux Fest that the next major Ubuntu release following Ubuntu 9.10 (the Karmic Koala) will be codenamed the Lucid Lynx. Ubuntu 10.04 will be the official name and with their bi-annual scheduling, this release will also serve as a Long Term Support (LTS) version.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx" is expected to ship in April of 2010 with GNOME 3.0, KDE 4.4, GCC 4.5, the Linux 2.6.34 kernel (ideally), feature a stunningly fast boot time, integrate a newer X Server with other X.Org updates, and offer many other improvements to the Linux server and desktop spaces. Meanwhile, Ubuntu 9.10 will be released this October.
