UBUNTU --
Adam Conrad on the behalf of the Ubuntu development community has announced the final beta release of the upcoming Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn" and its derivatives.

Ubuntu's Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products are participating in this final beta along with the many Ubuntu derivatives like Kubuntu and Xubuntu. Conrad wrote, "14.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs...The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 14.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on October 23rd, 2014."

Ubuntu 14.10 brings many package updates and other improvements while most of Canonical's investment into 14.10 has been around the next-generation Unity interface with their current mobile endeavors. For Ubuntu 14.10, Unity 7 remains the default while a Unity-Desktop-Next package is available for testing.
