Hello Ubuntu developers,

Welcome to Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 3, which will in time become Ubuntu 7.10.

Pre-releases of Gutsy are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, or even
frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

Tribe 3 is the third in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Gutsy development cycle. The Tribe images are
known to be reasonably free of show-stopper CD build or installer
bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of Gutsy. You can
download it here: (Ubuntu) (Kubuntu) (Edubuntu) (Xubuntu)

See for a list of mirrors.

Another set of new features landed in Tribe 3, and are ready for
large-scale testing.  Please refer to the following web pages for
details: (Ubuntu) (Kubuntu) (Xubuntu)

This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some
bugs. Among these are the following (so you don't need to bother
reporting these if you encounter them):

 * The desktop CD hangs on a lot of systems, especially slower ones
   with little RAM. Sometimes it is just slow, sometimes it will hang
   eternally. If you experience this and waiting a bit longer does
   not help, try to restart the computer and the live CD. If that
   still does not help, please use the alternate CD.

 * On Edubuntu server installs, the "Building LTSP root" step takes a
   very long time (in the order of 15 minutes) without visible
   progress. It will eventually finish, though.

If the graphical system does not come up or is very slow, please
file a bug against compiz:

Please include a copy of the files ~/.xsession-errors and
/var/log/Xorg.0.log, and the output of glxinfo and xdpyinfo.

If you're interested in following the changes as we further develop
Gutsy, have a look at the gutsy-changes mailing list:

Please be aware that this list usually has several dozen mails every

We also suggest that you subscribe to the ubuntu-devel-announce list
if you're interested in following Ubuntu development. This is a
low-traffic list (a few posts a month) carrying announcements of
approved specifications, policy changes, alpha releases, and other
interesting events.

Bug reports should go to the Ubuntu bug tracker:
