Maverick Meerkat

Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04) is nearing release. The Beta 2 release is scheduled for April 8 (2010). The release candidate is scheduled for April 22. The final release is scheduled for April 29. The reason I am harping on this is that Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Ubuntu 10.10 planning is already in the works, and it will be called Maverick Meerkat. Silly me, I thought normal people were still on Karmic!

Fortunately, besides blowing the mind of my spell checker, Maverick Meerkat will have a serious amount of new developments. The new theme is “Light,” which will be adopted at many levels. The Ubuntu Netbook Edition user interface, for instance, will be revamped. The Ubuntu developers will be working toward “the fastest boot, the fastest network connection, the fastest browser” for Ubuntu Netbook Edition.

As Shuttleworth explains, “Meerkats are, of course, light, fast and social – everything we want in a perfect 10.” Maverick will aim for making the desktop a “collaborative, social place.”

The schedule for Maverick Meerkat is:

June 3, 2010 – Alpha 1 release

July 1, 2010 – Alpha 2 release

August 12, 2010 – Alpha 3 release

September 2, 2010 – Alpha 4 release

September 23, 2010 – Beta release

October 21, 2010 – Release Candidate

October 28, 2010 – Final release.
