UBUNTU --
Ubuntu 15.10 final beta is now available along with this being a second beta release for the opt-in flavors participating in the earlier development milestones.

Ubuntu 15.10 is planned for release on 22 October and now the Wily Werewolf is in the home stretch with this beta issued. Ubuntu 15.10 is riding off Unity 7.3 and Compiz with only minor fixes made this cycle, is powered by the Linux 4.2 kernel and Mesa 11.0, supports persistent network interface names, and has a variety of other changes and package updates.

More details on Ubuntu 15.10 Final Beta for all flavors can be found via this evening's Wily Werewolf Final Beta announcement. Overall, Ubuntu 15.10 is a modest evolutionary step for the popular Linux distribution and isn't too jaw-dropping with being just one release before the next Long-Term Support (LTS) release.
