Ubuntu 7.10 Beta is Out
- Dark chocolaty Brown background. A homage to Dapper Drake. It’ll be the first thing I change after installation along with the rest of the themes. Sorry, but the default Gnome 2.20 ‘gummy’ theme is just irresistible ;)
- Compiz Fusion is now enabled by default (on supported cards). The most important part is, that it is implemented conservatively (usability first, bling second). Thank you very much Ubuntu devs.
- Firefox Add-ons are now integrated with Synaptic, +1 for open source integration.
- A GUI for video config. Its about time! They even have a safe-mode in case of errors.
- NTFS read/write by default via NTFS-3G (not that I need it that much)
- And last but not least, automatic printer configuration (true plug ‘n play)
Mark your calendars folks, October 18th is just around the corner.
To Ubuntu-ID: When can we start ordering the installer CD and repo DVDs?
