Alpha 6 of Intrepid Ibex is Out + 10 New Features

Hey fellow Ubuntu peeps! Have you been over to lately? They just released the Alpha 6 version of Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. You can download the iso for it here: (Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 6)

If you want to upgrade from 8.04 (Though I don't recommend it until the final release next month) you can do the following:

Press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '8.10' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

Intrepid Ibex comes with some new features. Here are ten new features from

  • Bauer-Power Linux Tux"Last successful boot" recovery entry
  • GNOME 2.23.91
  • X.Org server 7.4
  • Linux kernel 2.6.27
  • Encrypted private directory
  • Guest session
  • Network Manager 0.7
  • DKMS
  • Samba 3.2
  • PAM authentication framework
