Karmic Koala Alpha 1

Karmic Koala Alpha 1 has been released. You can download it here. Otherwise, to upgrade from Ubuntu 9.04 on a desktop system, press Alt + F2 and type in “update-manager -d” without the quotes. When Update Manager informs you that “new dsitribution release 9.10 is available,” click upgrade and follow the instructions.

Karmic Alpha 1 includes the latest Gnome 2.27.1 development release, and the 2.6.30-5.6 Linux kernel. As part of Karmic, the Intel video driver will most probably switch from the current “EXA” accelleration to the new “UXA.” This will solve performance problems with Jaunty.

Needless to say, if you don’t have a tolerance for breakage, feel free to stay with Jaunty Jackalope, I will be staying with it for now, since this is only the very first Alpha release.
