Raring Ringtail (Ubuntu 13.04) Will Not Have Alpha Releases

According to Nicholas Skaggs, the Ubuntu QA community coordinator for Canonical, the Ubuntu release schedule “has dropped all alphas, and the first beta, resulting in a beta and then final release milestone only. In addition, the freezes have been moved back a few weeks. The end result is the archive will not be frozen till late in the cycle, allowing development and testing to continue unencumbered.”

Thankfully, the flavors (Kubuntu, Edubuntu, etc.) will still be able to keep to the old ways if they choose to do so.

The Raring release schedule now looks like this:

March 28, 2013     Beta Release

April 25, 2013        Final Release

It is to be noted that the schedule for the flavors is different, though tentative:

December 6, 2012  Alpha 1

February 7, 2013    Alpha 2

March 7, 2013        Beta 1

March 28, 2013      Final Beta Release

April 18, 2013         Release Candidate

April 25, 2013         Final Release

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just
    wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

      I rely on WordPress’s spam filter. It’s not perfect, but it mostly does the job.

      Thank you for reading my blog. 🙂
