| Faster boot times, a better notification system and Gnome 2.26 are the 
| standout features of the beta release of Jaunty Jackalope (Ubuntu 9.04) made 
| available by the Ubuntu team this morning. On the server side Jaunty moves 
| steadily into the cloud with Eucalyptus for home-grown cloud services as well 
| as the start of Amazon EC2 services.    


First Look at Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope" Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| The name's ridiculous, but "Jaunty Jackalope," the next release of the 
| popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, is seriously focused on the user 
| experience. Dig what's new and improved in the beta of Ubuntu 9.04, released 
| today.   
| We've covered bits and pieces of what's coming up for Ubuntu 9.04 in the past 
| few months, such as Mac/Growl-like notifications (that you can grab now, if 
| you want), some stylish community themes, and the speedier ext4 filesystem.

| The newest version of Ubuntu (9.04, codenamed “Jaunty Jackalope”) is set to

| much of the improvement in 9.10 can be found under the hood.

| Ladies and Gents, I am pleased to announce the results of the Ubuntu 9.04
| Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase. This is the competition in which creative types
| can submit their work for inclusion in the Examples/ folder of the next
| edition of Ubuntu. In this competition we expanded the Audio and Video
| categories to also include a Graphic/Photo category too. We netted a
| fantastic range of entries and many great submissions!


Ubuntu 9.04's New Boot Splash

,----[ Quote ]
| After the new themes introduced yesterday, Canonical decided to update the
| boot splash screen (USplash) theme with a very nice one. As you can see in
| the image below, the logo is the same as it was in Ubuntu 8.10, but it's
| smaller and the loading bar was replaced with a thinner and nicer one (see
| the video below for more details). Softpedia is once again the first website
| to offer you a preview of the new artwork, which will probably be present in
| the final release of Ubuntu 9.04.


One Last Hurrah For USplash: A New Theme

,----[ Quote ]
| Pushed into the Jaunty repository this morning for Ubuntu 9.04 was a new
| theme for USplash. This Canonical project for providing a splash screen at
| boot-up on Ubuntu is being replaced by Plymouth with Ubuntu 9.10 (the Karmic
| Koala release), but there is a new Ubuntu theme as one last hurrah. This new
| USplash theme has a fixed-size Ubuntu logo centered in the middle of the
| display and a new progress bar. From our feelings at least, this new theme
| looks more professional than its predecessor, but it's not exactly a complete
| overhaul. Below is a video of this newly-pushed theme.


Ubuntu 9.04 Has a Brand New Wallpaper

,----[ Quote ]
| After the new login screen, new themes and the new boot splash theme
| introduced the other day, Canonical finally updated the old Ubuntu 8.10
| (Intrepid Ibex) wallpaper with a brand new one. As you can see in the image
| below, there's no more logo as everyone expected... instead, the wallpaper is
| slick, simple and stylish. Softpedia is once again the first website to offer
| you a preview of the new artwork, which will probably be present in the final
| release of Ubuntu 9.04.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
