Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu 9.04's blazing boot times

,----[ Quote ]
| ...Linux kernel 2.6.28, released on Christmas Eve 2008, delivered a stable 
| implementation of the ext4 filesystem, and this is now included in Ubuntu’s  
| daily development builds. It’s this filesystem which is getting geeks 
| worldwide all steamy under their collar.

| When checking out a recent daily LiveCD of Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty
| Jackalope), the migration wizard found in the Ubiquity installer now supports
| migrating files from an Ubuntu installation.


Artwork for Ubuntu Jaunty Already Impressive

,----[ Quote ]
| Just before Intrepid Ibex came out, I had a few things to say about the new
| artwork. In a last-minute switch, things improved a little, but I was still
| never impressed with Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex in the way that Fedora 10 or Ubuntu
| Hardy Heron impressed me. It seems we are barely even started into the new
| release cycle, yet I can already say there are some very promising choices.
| Below are a selection of my favorites: (A number are proposed specifically
| for the betas, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be used.)


Jaunty Alpha 2 released

,----[ Quote ]
| Pre-releases of Jaunty are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
| system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
| frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and
| those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
| Alpha 2 is the second in a series of milestone CD images that will be
| released throughout the Jaunty development cycle.  The Alpha images are
| known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while
| representing a very recent snapshot of Jaunty.


An early glimpse of Ubuntu 9.04

| The biggest change that I noted was the addition of an encrypted private area
| to your home user area. In the times in which we live, I can certainly see
| that coming in useful though it may not set pulses racing in some quarters.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
