Canonical releases Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu developers have announced the 
| availability of the second alpha release of 
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, code named "Lucid Lynx". 
| The latest development milestone is the 
| second of three planned alpha releases, 
| which will be followed by two beta releases 
| and then a release candidate.


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 Has Plymouth

,----[ Quote ]
| A few minutes ago, the Ubuntu development 
| team unleashed the second alpha version of 
| the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) 
| operating system, due for release in late 
| April this year. As usual, we've downloaded 
| a copy of it in order to keep you up-to-
| date with the latest changes in the Ubuntu 
| 10.04 LTS development.


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Removes HAL

,----[ Quote ]
| "HAL" unfortunately isn't the heinous 
| supercomputer from Kubrick's film 2001, but 
| Ubuntu's Hardware Abstraction Layer between 
| Ubuntu's hardware and software. It has now 
| disappeared entirely from the current 
| Ubuntu 10.04 test version, it's function 
| being taken over among other things by 
| DeviceKit. The advantage to this, according 
| to the official announcement, is that 
| Ubuntu has a faster boot and startup from 
| hibernate time. 


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks With Early Fedora 13 Numbers

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, there are both good and bad 
| performance improvements for Ubuntu 10.04 
| LTS Alpha 2 in relation to Ubuntu 9.10. 
| Most of the negative regressions are 
| attributed to the EXT4 file-system losing 
| some of its performance charm. With using a 
| pre-alpha snapshot of Fedora 13 and the 
| benchmark results just being provided for 
| reference purposes, we will hold off on 
| looking into greater detail at this next 
| Red Hat Linux update until it matures. You 
| can run your own tests though if you wish 
| using our open-source Phoronix Test Suite 
| benchmarking platform.

| (14th January) but what can you expect to
| find inside it?
