Jaunty Alpha 4 Has Been Released

Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope Alpha 4 has been released. The Ubuntu release notes highlight the following changes:

The latest X.Org server, version 1.6, is now available in Jaunty.

Font size (dots per inch) settings will now be optimized based on your monitor’s capabilities, and will not default to 96 dpi. You can customize your dpi settings settings by going to System > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts > Details.

Jaunty Alpha 4 includes the 2.6.28-6.17 kernel based on Linux kernel

Alpha 4 also supports the option of installing on the new ext4 file system, although ext3 will remain the default.

Bugs are being fixed so rapidly in Jaunty that I am having a hard time keeping up with the revisions. I have no doubt that Jaunty Jackalope will be ready for its April 23 scheduled final release date.

      I’m trying to do my part, as I’m sure you’re doing yours. I am personally amazed how good Jaunty Jackalope is, even in alpha.
