Intrepid Ubuntu plans out

By   |  July 10, 2008

With Intrepid Ibex, the next version of Ubuntu Linux, just a few months away the development team has released details of the most pressing issues for the 8.10 release. Among these are better 3G integration, tighter Firefox integration in KDE, and faster boot times.

Intrepid Ibex will likely ship with network-manager 0.7 which already includes support for CDMA ans GSM connections, using PPP behind the scenes. The plan is to “assemble a list of frequently used hardware and 3G providers in the markets with the highest 3G penetration”, and add those in as standard profiles and to fix connection issues before final release.

Intrepid Ibex is also expected to have better KDE-Firefox integration. In current releases there is poor KDE-Firefox integration for a number of protocols, including mailto. There is also a lack of solid mime-type support in KDE and a reliance on Gnome-VFS to source to find the application for any given mime type. Work in already underway to migrate Firefox to use XDG tool for Mime type queries.

Boot times

Boot performance is also high on the Intrepid Ibex agenda as Ubuntu eyes out potential in the rapidly-growing ultra-portable market. Key issues to be addressed to improve boot times in Intrepid include better use of multithreading by identifying processors up front and taking advantage of multi-core systems; using prefetch and preload to speed up the process and restructuring the boot order.

Another of the areas getting special attention for the release of Intrepid Ibex is better integration of Flash. The intention is to make the Flash player easier to install and use. As much as possible Intrepid will incorporate Free Flash and the long term goal is to ship a free Flash alternative by default.

OpenOffice.org 3.0

OpenOffice.org 3.0 also looks to be guaranteed for inclusion in Intrepid Ibex as the release date for OOo is September 2 and Intrepid Ibex is scheduled for release on October 30.

X.org 1.6, however, is unlikely to make it in to Intrepid.

There are also two upsteam memory managers in development: TTM and GEM. depending on the status of those one is likely to be integrated into Intrepid Ibex.

The Windows-based installer, Wubi, will likely sport a few new features in the final release of Intrepid Ibex, including online resizing, hibernation with swap files, support for DVD and larger distributions like Ubuntu Studio, bittorrent support for download manager, built in CD burner, native migration.

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Alpha 2 will be released today (July 10) and the final Ibex release will be on October 30.
