=== Ubuntu 8.10 Beta released ===

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the beta release of Ubuntu 8.10 
Desktop and Server.  Codenamed "Intrepid Ibex", 8.10 continues Ubuntu's 
proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source 
technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.

Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop Edition delivers the features you need for an 
increasingly mobile digital life, including 3G wireless support and 
guest sessions that lets users temporarily share computers without 
compromising security.

Ubuntu 8.10 Server consolidates its support for virtualization with an 
integrated Virtual Machine builder, and brings with it a fully-supported 
Java stack and support for per-user directory encryption.

The Ubuntu 8.10 family of variants, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, UbuntuStudio, and 
Mythbuntu, have also reach beta status. Features of the different 
variants, and the information about local downloading mirrors can be 
found at the link.

=== Intrepid Countdown Banner - Help spread the news! ===

Adding the Ubuntu countdown timer to your website is easy! Just copy and 
paste the lines of code found at the link into your web page, and each 
day the image will update showing the days remaining before the release. 
There are two options this time around, one dark and one light, so one 
or the other should fit nicely with your website theme. Thanks to 
Thorsten Wilms(thorwil), the Ubuntu community member who created these 
beautiful banners, and to the Ubuntu Web Presence team for all their 
hard work in bringing this project to life. Get the scripts at the link.

=== Monday October 6th: Ubuntu Testing Day! ===

Ubuntu Testing day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes 
together with a shared goal of testing a specific set of ISO images 
(Alpha, Beta, RC, Gold, or Point releases). Modeled after Ubuntu Bug 
Day, the idea is to apply the same concepts to ISO testing.

  * Who can join in: Everyone, you don't need to be a developer, or know 
how to code.
  * Where to join in: Come to #ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC. The team 
will be there day and night to help resolve any testing questions you 
might have.
  * Which release will they be testing: Apart from testing the beta 
ISOs, they will be focusing on testing distribution upgrades. If you 
want to upgrade your Hardy system (*buntu 8.04) to Intrepid (*buntu 
8.10) this is a great way to help get you on your way.

Marc Tardiff(cr3) will be giving a session in #ubuntu-classroom IRC 
channel (15:00 UTC), about the testing infrastructure, giving an 
overview on the tools available to make Ubuntu testing easier. Please, 
join in next Monday and help to make Ubuntu even better!

=== Kernel Hug Day - Tues Oct. 7th ===

The next Ubuntu Hug Day target will be . . . The Kernel! With Intrepid 
Ibex 8.10 Beta just being released, it's important that we be aware of 
any new bugs introduced, as well as any existing ones that need to be 
resolved.

  * Where: #ubuntu-bugs (freenode)
  * When: Tuesday, October 7th
  * Wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/20081007
  * For first timers: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs

You'll find plenty of people in #ubuntu-bugs ready to answer your 
questions and help you out. It can't stress enough that anyone can help. 
Whether you choose to blog about it, triage a few bugs, or help answer 
questions, every little bit helps, and is much appreciated.

=== PackageKit: Call for testing ===

The APT backend for PackageKit has made a lot of progress recently in 
the 0.3.x series. It nearly supports all features of PackageKit.

Highlights of the 0.3.x series are:

     * Search for codecs and mime type handlers
     * Local file installation
     * Change log for updates
     * Group support
     * Repository handling
     * Notification of new distro releases
     * A lot of bug fixes

Currently in use is a quite outdated 0.2.4 version in Intrepid. So if 
you are interested in this piece of software, and want to push 
packagekit forward please, test it on your system and report bugs that 
you may encounter. Details on how to get this version from the PPA at 
the link.

== In The Press ==

  * Ubuntu 8.10 Beta Released - Get your Internet connections warmed up 
Ubuntu fans, Canonical has just released the beta for the next version 
of Ubuntu 8.10. This is the first real look at what will be a major 
Ubuntu upgrade. There’s a whole laundry list of new features, but there 
are four major improvements for most users. First are the combination of 
the new GNOME 2.24 desktop interface and X.org 7.4 windows system. This 
pairing should give users a faster graphical interface. Next up is the 
encrypted private directory feature, which provides an encrypted folder 
in every users home directory. Third, many of you may not know about 
DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support), but you’re going to enjoy the 
improvements it brings to Ubuntu. DKMS will make it easier for you to 
get up-to-the-minute drivers without hand compiling device drivers. 
Finally, this latest distribution includes Samba 3.2. This is a major 
step-forward in getting Ubuntu to work closer with Windows clients and 
servers file systems. 
http://practical-tech.com/operating-system/ubuntu-810-beta-released/

  * Ubuntu Server: Canonical's Third Way to the Enterprise -  You’ll 
find servers carrying out tasks on every network, but why should anyone 
pick Ubuntu? Enterprises usually have to make a choice between the 
commercial model, or the community driven model. The third way allows 
organizations to use fully tested, and guaranteed software that 
Canonical stands behind, without having to pay a subscription. Steve 
George, Canonical’s Director of Corporate Services says that Ubuntu 
allows customers to select, and pay for exactly the options they want. 
With RHEL or SLES you effectively have to pay for security updates, but 
Ubuntu says that you only have to pay for support, and only if you want 
it. http://www.enterprisenetworkingplanet.com/netos/article.php/3775026

  * Gameloft moves 1,000 desktops to Ubuntu Linux - Businesses are 
catching on to Ubuntu. The latest example: Gameloft, a major mobile 
games developer, has moved more than 1,000 desktops to Ubuntu, according 
to a source who reached out to The VAR Guy. Gameloft’s move to Ubuntu is 
noteworthy for several reasons. First, Gameloft is publicly held and its 
stock is traded on the Paris Stock Exchange. In other words, Ubuntu has 
pushed beyond the hacker crowd and, is now gaining traction in 
profit-driven businesses. Second, Gameloft has nearly 4,000 employees, 
placing it somewhere between a mid size and large enterprise. Gameloft 
has been profitable since 2003, and sales are growing 25 to 30 percent 
annually. Translation: Big Business is starting to take Ubuntu 
seriously. Finally, Gameloft creates games for mobile devices. And 
cranking out all that code requires a stable development environment. 
Hello, Ubuntu.

  * How often do we need GNU/Linux releases? - Of what use is an 
operating system if all it does is to make you look forward to the next 
release? For years, Microsoft thrived on just such a strategy, adding 
features to Windows as though they were going out of style, and not 
caring about anything apart from market share. What has been the end 
result? Windows is a widespread but highly insecure and buggy operating 
system which everyone is forced to use simply because it has become some 
kind of de facto standard. Sam Varghese, of itwire, fears that GNU/Linux 
- or at least some distributions - are following in its wake. Ubuntu 
releases every six months, but do we really need release cycles where 
features are added at breakneck speed? Sam thinks a release once every 
18 months is more than enough. Given that interval, there is time to 
properly test software, and there is time to incorporate packages that 
will really make a difference.

  * Ubuntu: Not A Small Business Server Replacement (Yet) - One market 
that Ubuntu has yet to crack is that of the SoHo server. Millions of 
office workers all over the world send email and save documents to a 
Microsoft Windows Small Business Server. But is Ubuntu ready to compete 
head-on against SBS? The current answer may not thrill Ubuntu fans. Many 
SoHos have a physical host in their office with enough space for storing 
documents from their desktop, a simple backup solution, and net 
connectivity including a firewall, and access controls. Some use 
external hosted services providing similar features. This sounds like an 
ideal market opportunity for Ubuntu Server Edition. But is it? Most of 
these small businesses have no dedicated IT personnel and minimal 
computing expertise. For many the graphical administration tools and 
integrated nature of SBS are essential for them to use the computer as 
tools in their businesses.

== In The Blogosphere ==

  * First Look at Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibix" Beta - Kevin Purdy 
comments on the Intrepid Ibex beta release saying that the major focus 
of the next version of Ubuntu is compatibility, and usability. The 
desktop features have been tweaked, and new tools have been added. 
Installation now includes a graphical view for the partition editor. 
Browser data, backgrounds, music, and pictures can now be imported from 
XP and Vista. Nautilus now supports tabbed browsing, and each user will 
have an encrypted private directory by default. Improved support for 3G 
and cellular connections in Network manager, and enhanced multiple 
connections  handling (e.g. wired and wireless). Graphics and external 
monitors have received a fair amount of attention, eliminating the need 
to hack xorg.conf., and the window for enabling proprietary devices 
(e.g. NVidia cards, wireless chips, etc.) now provides more information 
and offers more choices in drivers. Other improvements include "guest" 
log-in, improved SAMBA, and persistent permissions.

  * Ubuntu: Not a Small Business Server Replacement (Yet) - Alan Pope at 
the blog WorksWithU tells us that the SoHo server market has yet to be a 
success for Ubuntu. Many businesses have a server in their office 
running MS Small Business Server which allows storage, backup, and net 
connectivity. A significant number of them have no dedicated IT staff, 
however, and rely on the integrated nature, and graphical tools within 
SBS. Users are also required to purchase Client Access Licenses for each 
device which connects to the server. Viruses, mal-ware, and spam 
administration also require both time and money from the business. This 
situation appears to be a significant opportunity for Ubuntu...however, 
the issue becomes ease of use and administration. While LDAP, PAM 
integration, and SAMBA are not difficult, they are beyond the level to 
which an average office worker is prepared to go. SoHos need an SBS 
replacement similar to that provided for desktop users with Ubuntu 
Desktop.

  * In Ubuntu, less is more - Steven Rosenberg discusses the differences 
in the installation of Ubuntu and Debian desktops. Debian installs via a 
network connection and needs less updating post install, where as when 
installing Ubuntu on multiple machines a single installation CD can be 
used to install many machines without any network connection needed. 
Rosenberg also points out how clean the typical Ubuntu installation is 
as it provides a starting point for users to customize their systems. So 
whether you call it clean and logical or sparse and lacking, the Ubuntu 
GNOME desktop starts out quite a bit more lean than the equivalent in 
Debian. http://www.insidesocal.com/click/2008/10/in-ubuntu-less-is-more.html

=== e1000e nvm fix (new patch from intel for e1000e bug) ===

Jesse Brandeburg has reported to the LKML.org mailing list that a patch 
is being applied to the Linux 2.6.27-rc8 kernel to fix the problem with 
the e1000e NVM (non volatile memory) after the driver is loaded.  This 
patch locks the registers until the machine is power cycled. Intel 
Ethernet is reproducing the problem on multiple machines, and are 
working with the Linux kernel team, and community members to rectify it. 
This patch does not solve the underlying problem, but does buy them some 
time to address it in depth.

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/10/1/368

NOTE: Ubuntu announced that the driver will remain disabled until after 
the beta release cycle is finished, will be re-enabled in daily builds 
for the release candidates, and should be resolved by the time Ubuntu 
8.10 final is released.
