Karmic Koala Alpha 6

Karmic Koala Alpha 6 was released yesterday (September 17).

ISOs and torrents of Karmic Alpha 6 are available at:

Of course, you can upgrade from Jaunty or an earlier Alpha by pressing Alt + F2 and typing “update-manager -d” into the box (without the quotes).

In the effort to cut boot time, Ubuntu has now switched to Upstart. The usplash screen is gone.  Now, you get a black screen and then the brand-new x-screen.

Karmic Alpha 6 also now includes the Ubuntu Software Store.  In the first version, it is much like Add/Remove, though easier to use.  In later versions, it will grow to replace Synaptic, gdebi, parts of Computer Janitor and possibly even Update Manager.

More information about Karmic Alpha 6 is available at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/karmic/alpha6.
