Ubuntu 12.10 named "Quantal Quetzal" beta 1 has been released

Kate Stewart has announced the availability of the first beta release of Ubuntu 12.10, code name "Quantal Quetzal": "The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the first beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products. Some of the new features now available are: consolidated client images now support the logical volume manager (LVM) as well as full disk encryption; Update Manager has been renamed Software Updater and now checks for updates when launched; a new X.Org stack has been introduced which includes X.Org Server 1.13 candidate versions, Mesa 9.0, and updated X libraries and drivers; Unity has been updated to version 6.4 including support for dash previews and coverflow view.

Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
