Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 Released

Ok, so I haven't been keeping up with the latest Ubuntu 12.04 development but since I recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop, I decided I might as well post about the development releases of Ubuntu 12.04. A couple of days ago, Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 was released. It's there now available for download.

With Feature Freeze and Interface Freeze long since past the majority of changes to this beta over the last are performance and bug related, although notable things to look out for: -

  • Unity 5.8
  • Qt-based Ubuntu One desktop client
  • Additional Application Quicklists
  • New Multi-Monitor options
  • New HUD animation
  • Updated LibreOffice and Firefox packages
  • Some updated apps from GNOME 3.4
I say I can't wait for the final release to come out on the 28 April 2012. Until then, I will stick with Ubuntu 11.10.
