Ubuntu Intrepid Alpha-1 released

By   |  June 28, 2008

The Ubuntu development team has announced the first alpha release of the forthcoming Ubuntu 8.10, also called Intrepid Ibex. This is still s very early release so is not recommended for general use.

In an emailed announcement this morning the team said: “Welcome to Intrepid Ibex Alpha-1, which will in time become Ubuntu 8.10.

“Pre-releases of Intrepid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.”

CD images of Intrepid Alpha-1 can be downloaded from:

The primary changes from Hardy have been the re-merging of changes from Debian and the upgrade of the Linux kernel to a pre-release version of 2.6.26.
