Ubuntu 12.10 Codenamed "Quantal Quetzal" Beta 1 Released !!

After the release of two Alpha version (Alpha1 & Alpha 2), now its time for beta; and as expected both Canonical and the Ubuntu developer team has released the first beta of version 12.10 of their Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, code named "Quantal Quetzal". Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 1 uses a Linux kernel which is based on the recent 3.5.3 Linux kernel, the current stable version of Linux 3.5.
12.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.  The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs. For the client, this release now has a consolidated Ubuntu image.  There is no longer a traditional CD sized image, DVD or alternate image, but rather a single 800MB Ubuntu image that can be used from USB or DVD.  This change does not affect Ubuntu Server, which remains a traditional CD sized image.  With Ubuntu 12.10, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Studio also reached Beta 1 status today.   These images, along with Xubuntu will continue to have daily updates for the remainder of the release. The final version of Ubuntu 12.10 is expected to be released on October 18, 2012

  • The consolidated client images now support the logical volume manager (LVM) as well as full disk encryption.
