Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 1 Released

And we are off and away! The first alpha of Ubuntu 12.10 is out now. This is the first alpha of the Ubuntu 12.10 development cycle.

Just to note, there isn't that many changes yet. Like most Alpha releases of Ubuntu the changes are, at this stage, inward facing and in their initial stages. You’ll find updated packages for most major applications, including the latest beta of Firefox 14; an updated Rhythmbox sporting minor cosmetic adjustments; and ‘Update Manager’ has been renamed to ‘Software Updater’ like I wrote a few weeks ago.

 Alpha releases are NOT recommended for you to install. Instead, if you’re curious, I recommend you put them in a virtual machine. If you need some nice virtualization software, I recommend you go and get VirtualBox.
