Second alpha of Ubuntu Oneiric
by admin ·
Ubuntu evolves 11:10: The second alpha is available for downloading on the servers. Thunderbird comes for the first time as the default e-mail solution for use. Also, the first components of GNOME 3.1 are one of the party.
Once again, Kate Stewart Canonical announced on the Devel-Announce mailing list on a trial version of Ubuntu. Yesterday, the second alpha released from Oneiric Ocelot, also known as Ubuntu 11.10. In mid-October, the new version is to appear officially, but some changes already put in the Alpha 2
Who wants to know, what about the alpha version, details can be found to existing problems and errors in the test report from the Ubuntu team for quality assurance. More details about the included features, however, betray the release notes . New on board are Firefox and Thunderbird in version 5 and the 3.0 kernel.
Thunderbird has been updated not only to solve but on the CD – at least at present – also from evolution. Some parts of Gnome have been updated to version 3.1.
The new integrated backup solution Déjà Dup is also part of the Alpha 2 as the log-in manager Lightdm, replacing the GDM. Also interesting: the files of the user “joe” is produced, are now also automatically for the group “joe” overwritten – the default file masks were changed from 022 to 002. Provided for ARM machines OMAP3 ISOs are not functioning, but that will soon change. Kubuntu on the other hand, there are no images for the second alpha. Harald Sitter gives as reason diefortlaufende integration work on KDE 4.6.90.
