Ubuntu Jaunty saunters into view

By   |  November 22, 2008

Less than a month after the release of Ubuntu Intrepid, the first alpha release of Jaunty Jackalope is now out. now out. As the start of what will, in April next year, become Ubuntu 9.04, Jaunty jackalope is not recommended for anyone but the more adventurous, or those hardy souls known as developers.

But if you’re willing to add to the Ubuntu community and the future of Ubuntu, then you can download a copy now:

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/jaunty/alpha-1/ (Xubuntu)
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/releases/jaunty/alpha-1/ (Ubuntu Studio)

You can also find a list of mirrors at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors.

The primary changes from Intrepid have been the re-merging of changes from Debian as well as getting the new ARM port up and running.

The development team said in its announcement earlier today: “This is the very first roughly working set of images off the production line, and they haven’t all been tested, so you should expect some bugs. Prominent among these are that some of the images are oversized and can only be tested using a DVD or a virtual machine, and that the desktop CD isn’t ready yet! This release consists only of the alternate and server CDs; the desktop CD will follow in the next Alpha release.”
