Mesa 7.6 Gets Pulled Into Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| Mesa 7.6 does not drastically change the level of 
| performance compared to the older Mesa snapshot 
| that was found in Ubuntu Karmic up until today, 
| but there are improvements in a few areas. In the 
| below example from an Intel G43 system we 
| compared the Ubuntu 9.04, Ubuntu 9.10 Beta, and 
| Ubuntu 9.10 Beta with Mesa 7.6 performance using 
| the Phoronix Test Suite. With the Urban Terror 
| game there were performance improvements already 
| to be found in Ubuntu 9.10 compared to Ubuntu 
| 9.04 with Mesa 7.4, but this latest code steps up 
| the performance one bit more.


Opinion: Why Karmic Is The Best Designed Ubuntu Yet

,----[ Quote ]
| A much greater selection of elements, colours, 
| themes, tones, etc are present â allowing new 
| users to stamp their authority over their desktop 
| within seconds; no more trudging dodgy wallpaper 
| sites for badly rendered scenery when superb 
| choices are included by default.



Significant improvements in Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently installed the beta version of the upcoming
| version of Ubuntu codenamed Karmic Kuala. The changes
| since 9.04 are somewhat subtle yet significant.
| Already in the beta you can feel the polish that went
| into it. Below, in no particular order, I shall rant
| about a few improvements that puts a smile on my
| face.


Karmic Koala: The best Ubuntu Linux ever?

,----[ Quote ]
| Another real nice addition to this
| distribution for new users is the Ubuntu
| Software Center. This take on an apps store,
| makes it mindlessly easy for people to find
| and install software. Experienced Linux users
| won't need this. For them, the Synaptic
| package manager and all the other usual
| package installation programs are there, and
| that's great. But, if you have a friend who's
| just getting their feet wet in Linux, this
| feature is great.

| Yes, after six months down the road, itâs time
| to gear up for the newly born Ubuntu baby
| again. This time, Ubuntu 9.10, codenamed
| Karmic Koala, will be officially released on
| 29th Oct 2009.  We, at MakeTechEasier have not
| been slacking around. With the release of the
| 9.10 beta, we have grabbed the LiveCD image,
| wipe our machines clean and installed the full
| version onto it. Now, let us present you the
| screenshots tour (and new features) review of
| Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 beta.
