I'm happy to see that we could release both 64-bit *and* 32-bit for
this Alpha 2 milestone. Please continue to test in the coming days, as
sometimes there will be new images to test new bugfixes. Most of our
serious bugs so far seem to be in the OEM images.

Thanks for the testing you have already done!

All the best,

Valorie, Kubuntu Release Manager

The second alpha of the Artful Aardvark (to become 17.10) has now been released!

This milestone features images for Lubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu Mate,
Ubuntu Budgie and Ubuntu Kylin.

Pre-releases of the Artful Aardvark are *not* encouraged for anyone
needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into
occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for
Ubuntu flavour developers and those who want to help in testing,
reporting, and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release
ready.

Alpha 2 includes some software updates that are ready for wider
testing, however, it is quite an early set of images, so you should
expect some bugs.

While these Alpha 2 images have been tested and do work, except as
noted in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to
improve the Artful Aardvark. In particular, once newer daily images
are available, system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 2
installer should be verified against the current daily image before
being reported in Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs
that have already been fixed wastes your time and the time of
developers who are busy trying to make 17.10 the best Ubuntu release
yet. Always ensure your system is up to date before reporting bugs.
