The Ubuntu 13.04 Beta Has Been Released

The Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) Final Beta was released yesterday.  The release candidate will be available on April 18, with the final release coming on April 25.

To upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal) on a desktop system, press Alt + F2 and type in “update-manager -d” without the quotes.  Update Manager should then open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘13.04’ is available.  You then just need to click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

If you wish to make a clean install of Raring, the following beta images are available:

One bug warning:  The installer freezes on the “Preparing to Install” screen when an already existing Linux installation is present. Turning swap off before installing may help.
