    Very little improvement over 10.04, IMO

    Over the years I find it best to stick with the LTS versions.

    It's good to see Ubuntu working more on the fit & polish in this release :thumb:

    Have you tried the new fonts on Ubuntu Lucid? I found a ppa to add the new fonts but I am not sure if it is safe to add this ppa to the sources.

    Personally I'll stick to LTS but I'm still curious. I've only quickly tried beta1 and rc in a live session.

    Anything new for people who don't use/like GNOME?
    Nothing end user visible I guess. Pretty much all software from top to bottom got a version bump but I don't think there's anything particularly worth mentioning. There's a new kernel, brought new hardware support, btrfs improvements (but still far from ready for production), anything exciting I might have missed? Please tell.

    ACPI power management states (ac, battery) now works.
    Implemented SATA, sounds hdd commit intervals and various other ACPI power saving modes that have been missing, imcomplete, conflicting (esp with laptopmodetools).

    btrsfs is available (though still not considered stable for production workstations/servers).

    Updated version of Evolution has far better performing IMAP.

    I also read Empathy has meta contacts and better contact management (though not checked that one out).

    These are the kinda updates I would love to see as LTS backports, but I will be updating tomorrow at a release party :D

    That's good to hear. I'm eager to see some battery benchmarks. Hope we'll reach parity with "Other OS" some day :/

    The dailies have not changed in two days so it appears these Maverick build's will be the final.

    Gnome...

    Kubuntu...
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/daily-live/current/

    They may change in 5 minutes...maybe in the morning...no way to know until tomorrow really...but if the Lucid release is any indication then these will be the final.

    BTW, for the past two days I must have visited these links twenty times a day. o_O . I hate waiting.

    Later....

    I think now it should be (assuming all works correctly) close enough to not be an issue.

    Cheers, Nick

    Here is something else new! If you are using an ASUS PCE-N13 or any card that uses the rt2860sta driver you must blacklist:
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2800usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    blacklist rt2x00usb

    or you will never connect using wifi.
