Karmic Koala Alpha 3 Has Been Released

Yesterday, July 23, 2009, Karmic Koala Alpha 3 was released. Of course, since this is a pre-release, it is not advised for use by anyone who needs stable, production-type system. You may also find breakage. That said, the Ubuntu community is always looking for testers to try out the new alphas and report bugs. (Thankfully, due to the excellent bug-reporting software Apport, many bugs almost report themselves. All you have to do is agree to let the computer collect the information. It’s been a while since I hit a show-stopper bug, though, so I don’t have any screen-shots. 🙂

The announcement for Karmic Alpha 3 states that it “includes a number of software updates that are ready for large-scale testing.” New features include the use of Linux kernel 2.6.31, a gorgeous new gdm screen (please come out with colors other than “human”!, the latest GNOME 2.27.4 development release, and Empathy replacing Pidgin as the default instant meassaging client.

More information is available here.

Happy testing!
