10.10 Ubuntu Beta released
The latest version of Ubuntu has been released as a beta version. This brings Ubuntu up to version 10.10. Ubuntu 10.10 is due to be officially released, out of beta sometime in October but, if you can’t wait until then, you can download the beta version here. As it is a beta though, it’s recommended not to use it on your main computer, or at least, not as your main OS. It’s noted that there are still some bugs which need to be worked out and you can check the release notes for more information.
