=== Announcing the Release Candidate for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ===

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the Release Candidate for Ubuntu
10.04 LTS (Long-Term Support) Desktop and Server Editions and Ubuntu 10.04
LTS Server for Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) and Amazon's EC2, as well as
Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition.  Codenamed "Lucid Lynx", 10.04 LTS continues
Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source
technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.

We consider this release candidate to be complete, stable, and suitable for
testing by any user.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop Edition and Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition continue
the trend of ever-faster boot speeds, with improved startup times and a
streamlined, smoother boot experience.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition provides even better integration of the
Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, with its install-time cloud setup.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server for UEC and EC2 brings the power and stability of
the Ubuntu Server Edition to cloud computing, whether you're using Amazon
EC2 or your own Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud.

The Ubuntu 10.04 family of variants, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Ubuntu
Studio, and Mythbuntu, also reach beta status today.

The final release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is scheduled for 29 April 2010 and
will be supported for three years on desktops and five years on servers.

Before installing or upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, please review the
instructions and caveats in the release notes:


In addition, there are a small number of known bugs in the release candidate
that will be fixed before the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS release, but warrant
highlighting for your attention:


The purpose of the Release Candidate is to solicit one last round of testing
before the final release. Here are ways that you can help:

 * Upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS or Ubuntu 9.10 to the Release Candidate by
   following the instructions in the release notes referenced above.

 * Participate in installation testing using the Release Candidate CD
   images, by following the testing and reporting instructions at

To upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Release Candidate from Ubuntu 9.10 or Ubuntu
8.04 LTS, follow these instructions:

=== Call for UDS Plenaries and Lightning Talks ===

Jorge Castro posted to the ubuntu-devel mailing list the the call for
UDS the hour after lunch we have plenaries. These are typically broken
up into 4 15 minute talks, but can be combined for longer talks for a
total of 16 plenaries. If you're interested in giving a talk, sign up


Jorge has also added a "talks you'd like to see" section. This spot is
for you to fill out. Please take this opportunity to throw team
members under the bus ... er, or rather encourage them to share their

Like last time on Friday instead of plenaries we'll have Lightning
Talks. These will be 5 minutes long and we need as many diverse topics
as possible. By Friday we'll be dead tired, so if you remember jml's
"Code like a Rockstar" pep talk this is exactly the kind of energy
we're looking for to motivate everyone to finish off strong. For more
information see link below:


=== Ubuntu Launchpad Single-Sign-On Now Open Source ===

Jono Bacon[1] (Ubuntu Community Manager) announced on his blog [2]:-

Some time back we made Launchpad available as Open Source, and we have
gone on to see a wonderful and thriving Launchpad development
community flourish there.

One component in particular that was not made available as Open Source
[3], was the Canonical Identity Provider which is used by the
Launchpad Single Sign On and Ubuntu Single Sign on facilities. I am
pleased to announce that we are now able to provide this code under an
AGPL3 license. Thanks to Stuart Metcalfe who has been coordinating the
technical and licensing work to be able to contribute this change.

You can grab the code from this Launchpad project page [4].

=== Ubuntu's success at Anime Boston 2010! ===

The Ubuntu Massachusetts LoCo team played an instrumental part in the
success of Anime Boston 2010.
Reactions came from people who already used Ubuntu, knew someone who
used Ubuntu, had heard of Ubuntu, and even those who had never heard
of Ubuntu.  Overheard "Who needs Windows 7!?"  This comment from
passersby at the Anime Boston convention. Along with passing out
fliers, about 550 CDs, and 1000 copies of the Ubuntu Manga they even
did 5 live installs.  Overall, it was quite a success.  For more
information and pictures of the event please see link below:


=== LoCo Stories: the Asturian team drives the Asturian Language
Academy migration to Ubuntu ===

The Ubuntu Asturian LoCo has prompted the Asturian Language Academy to
move to Ubuntu.  Asturian is a language used in the Northern region of
Spain, and has not achieved formal recognition as a coexistent
language.  The event that started the migration was a press conference
held on April 9th that was covered by television, radio and
newspapers.  This was a "move that sets an important milestone in the
introduction of Ubuntu in the regional government of Asturies, to be
hopefully followed by other governmental bodies."  The even closed
with a demonstration of Ubuntu in the Asturian language.  More
information is available at the link below:


=== Ubuntu Turkey LoCo Team Interviews Canonical CTO, Matt Zimmerman ===

Canonical CTO Matt Zimmerman was recently in Turkey, and the Turkey
LoCo had an opportunity to interview him.  A number of questions were
asked, including (but not limited to):
 * Can your briefly tell us what did you present in FSF days?
 * Where do you see yourself in relation to Free Software and Open
Source, now and in the past?
 * What are the targets and the plans of Ubuntu project in five years?
 * Ubuntu makes radical changes like moving the window buttons to the
left side and removing Gimp from default applications. How do you
decide those changes? Do you evaluate all relevant factors like the
community’s opinion?
 * Will Canonical make alliances with computer vendors for Ubuntu’s
being at many computers, for instance are we going to see the
computers that have been installed Ubuntu at Ubuntu Shop?
 * We have lots of ATI driver complaints. Does Canonical take steps in
the direction of ATI drivers?
 * Do you have plans for cell phones? In after days, are we going to
play music and videos or view pictures that we have transferred to the
cloud from our computers by connecting to Ubuntu One account?

The answers to these and other questions are available at this link.

=== Ubuntu-NY Lucid release party ===

J Austin Bardo wants to remind everyone that a New York State Release
Party for Lucid lynx will happen this Saturday, May 1st at the
Waterloo Holiday Inn. We will have a morning install fest starting at
10am, and speakers and party in the afternoon starting 2pm. I hope to
see many new and old faces there.

Also, for the first time, a second event is being planned in New
Paltz, NY at Slash Root on Saturday, May 8th. It will be going on
during business hours with informative sessions and a best 'Lynx'
costume contest.

=== Launchpad in the second half of 2010 ===

Want to see what Launchpad is thinking of for the rest of the year?
Launchpad’s Strategist, Jonathan Lange suggests four areas that he
feels are important to Launchpad users:
 * Privacy and permissions model - "It’s currently tangled up with the
way we send emails to people, and we’d love to untangle them."
 * Making Launchpad faster - the Foundations team is already working on this
 * Derivative distributions - Linux distributions that extends or
customizes another one, generally Ubuntu
 * Ubuntu Software Center - "Launchpad occupies a special place in the
Software Center world, since it can help make it easier to get
applications for your desktop and make it easier to develop those

=== Jono Bacon: Lucid Community Team Review ===

One thing I have been working hard to continue to grow and refine with
each cycle is how I manage my team at Canonical, the projects that we
are working on, and how we coordinate ours and other projects with the
wider community. As I have focused on improving this project
management approach, I have been working to help better structure and
plan our projects.

While I started doing this with my team specifically, I was keen to
see if I could improve this in the wider community too. As such, at
the last Ubuntu Developer Summit I worked to better socialize the idea
of teams developing a firm idea of what they want to achieve in a
cycle, planning that work out, assigning the work across the wider
team and making steady progress on those goals throughout the cycle.

To do this I encouraged teams to build roadmaps with a core set of
goals, divide those goals into blueprints and to track actions inside
those blueprints. Some teams embraced this more structured approach
and were successful in achieving their goals.

As part of this work I approved a set of blueprints that I would
manage as part of my team. This core set of blueprints, a mix of my
team’s and other community goals, set the primary goals and workflow
for my team throughout the cycle, and my role was to keep everything
on track. Then by using a burndown chart we tracted the progress of
the blueprints. this experiment demonstrated to me that the tool is
useful for helping raise the opportunity for success.

As such, in the Maverick cycle I am going to use the same approach,
but continue to encourage more community participation in these
structured blueprints. I think that the burndown approach not only
helps me guide all these projects and keep them on track with a
regular flow of achievements, but it also helps raise my visibility on
the different actions which helps me easily identify the next pieces
of low-hanging fruit and coordinate with the community around
completion of those tasks and unblocking any problems.

For a list of the blueprints for Lucid, and the burndown chart see link below:


=== Chris Johnson: Ubuntu IRC Bots Junior Tasks ===

The Ubuntu IRC Bots team is looking for volunteers who know python, or
are interested in learning python to help out with development of the
Ubuntu IRC bots. They recently created a tag called Junior Tasks[1]

===  Nizar Kerkeni: Ubuntu, the family album ===

A few days before the release of the new Ubuntu, here’s a guided tour
through the Ubuntu family album with some annotations telling
my(nizarus) story with the different versions. Included with the
annotations are pictures of the animals each release was named for.

=== Martin Owens: Ground Control 1.6 and Website ===

DoctorMo is pleased to announce the release of Ground Control 1.6,
these feature features minor improvements and fixes but the main
change is fixing the launchpad openid problem that stopped all new
users of ground control from enjoying the integration. He is also
pleased to announce the new ground control website[1] which was very
kindly designed by Brett Alton, and produced by himself for this
release. You can get the new version 1.6 from the download link on the
website, and please use the latest PPA, as the version in Lucid is 1.5
still suffers from the launchpad openid login bug.

Any thoughts and comments please post them here, but any bugs please
post them to the launchpad bug tracker.

=== Oliver Grawert: Unleash the Beagles !!! ===

Over the last few weeks the mobile (mainly me, Ogra) and the kernel
team (mainly amit) of Ubuntu made some effort to bring up an image for
the awesome TI OMAP3 Beagleboard. Since we literally only had a few
weeks and it is already been late in the release cycle when we started
the images will have more rough edges than the other ARM images we
provide. Also the board only has 256M of RAM so using a Netbook image,
even though it is already slightly optimized for low-end systems and
ARM usage it will surely use swap on your system if you try it out. So
if you have a Beagleboard, go to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/Beagle
any try out one of the images, if you dont have one yet, GET ONE !!!
Its fun and you can help out ubuntu on ARM!


=== Martin Owens: 200 Artist/Designers! ===

According to DoctorMo, a Ubuntu artists community has been developing
over the past couple of months. He's very impressed that it now
contains 200 members who can post images to the galleries and 268
watchers (people who can’t post but who do see other people’s work).
If you have an article or piece of news that you’d like relayed to
this burgeoning Ubuntu artists community, do let him know right away
and he’ll post it as a blog entry. They’ve already posted entries
about GIMP ui changes, inkscape competition and mypaint guides. They
are looking for more contributions and sharing of methods, as they
don’t get many icon makers either considering the number of them
making lovely graphics.

=== Ubuntu 10.04 delivers usability, strength ===

IT World's Brian Proffitt says what finally convinced him that Ubuntu
was worthy of the average desktop user: Proffitt installed it on his
Mom's computer. Actually, this happened quite some time ago, so this
is not necessarily news. But it's key to note that Proffitt indicated
"average" desktop user. While he says he was very willing to recommend
Ubuntu for users who just needed to handle day-to-day operations like
surfing, e-mail, word processing, and the like, Proffitt was
personally holding back from using it himself, preferring instead to
use openSUSE, which enabled me to complete more advanced tasks, like
video editing and conversion, pretty easily. Earlier versions of
Ubuntu gave the feel of a pretty, shiny face over the old existing
Linux strengths and limitations. Ubuntu 10.04 delivers a sense of a
strong, cohesive operating system underneath. Beauty, for Ubuntu, has
at last become more than skin deep.


=== Ubuntu 10.04 Release Candidate Available ===

Jamie of ZDNet just installed the "desktop" 64-bit release and the
"netbook" 32-bit release yesterday. Setting aside the controversy over
some of the technical decisions and changes Ubuntu has made, and
looking only at installation, cosmetics and simple functionality,
Ubuntu has once again done an excellent job. Installation is smooth
and easy and most, if not all, of the installation screens have been
reworked and significantly improved in terms of both ease of
understanding and use. When Jamie compares this RC to a couple of
releases ago, it is a huge improvement, and looks very good.


=== Ubuntu 10.04 Release Candidate Is Here ===

Phoronix's Michael Larabel notes that for those interested,
distributions as part of the Ubuntu family (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, et al)
have also been updated to their Lucid Lynx release candidate status.
The mailing list announcement with all of the download links can be
found on the Ubuntu mailing list. [1] By now most everyone should be
familiar with Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx", so there is not much more to
say. The final release of this Long-Term Support release is expected a
week from today.

=== 50 Places Linux is Running That You Might Not Expect ===

Focus.com recalls that it was not long ago when Microsoft Windows had
a tight stranglehold on the operating system market. Walk into a
Circuit City or Staples, it seemed, and virtually any computer you
took home would be running the most current flavor of Windows. In the
last decade, though, the operating system market has begun to change.
Slightly more than 5% of all computers now run Mac, according to
NetMarketShare.com. Linux is hovering just beneath 1% of the overall
market share in operating systems. And although that might sound like
a small number, Linux is far more than just a fringe OS. In fact, it's
running in quite a few more places than you probably suspect.
Focus.com then goes on to list fifty places where Linux is running in
place of Windows or Mac, including places like the French parliament
which opted in November 2006 to dump Windows in favor of Ubuntu Linux.
According to Macedonia's ministry of education and science, every
student in Macedonia uses a computer workstations powered by Ubuntu
Linux, as part of that country's "A Computer For Every Child" program.
Other places such as the Philippines, Georgia, Google, Wikipedia, and
some systems from Dell all use Ubuntu. Follow this link to see a
number of other places currently running Ubuntu.


=== Ubuntu 10.04 Is Hit By Major X.Org Memory Leak ===

Michael Larabel of Phoronix tips us off that Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is set
to be released next Thursday and a release candidate was just released
on April 22nd, but there's some last minute problems within the Lucid
Lynx camp. There's a last-minute X.Org Server update that's being
looked at as a result of a "major memory leak" that has been found
over the past week. An X.Org Server update that was pushed into the
Lucid repository last week has resulted in the system being slower and
slower as its left on until it reaches a point where the system is no
longer usable. The memory leak was tracked down to a set of patches
that were made to fix some program crashes when the X.Org Server began
supporting GLX 1.4. The bug surrounding this X.Org memory leak is
titled GEM objects not deallocated [1] in reference to the Graphics
Execution Manager. There's also details surrounding this troublesome
regression on the Ubuntu Wiki via the GEMLeak page. [2] A message in
regards to this problem has also been written to the ubuntu-devel
mailing list [3] classifying this as an urgent problem.

=== Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 RC released on time ===

Bob Mattes reviewed the Ubuntu 10.04. He says he doesn't find huge
differences from Beta 2. The icons are the same as Beta 2 and the
window controls are still all on the left side. He provides a short
list of some of the included software and a review of Rythymbox and
the Ubuntu One Music store. He shows how easy it is to use the music
store and how well it syncs to his MP3 player. He mentions the new
Nvidia drivers.

=== Ubuntu Manual Project To Release Quickstart Booklets For Ubuntu 10.10 ===

Benjamin Humphrey announces the work being done to keep the Ubuntu
Manual up to date. He explains the quality control going into the
second edition and states he wants the second edition to be 100% error
free. For 10.10 he says that the Ubuntu Manual project will not only
keep to its same high quality, but add an Ubuntu Quickstart booklet
that can be handed out by LoCo teams and other groups at events. There
will also be improvements to Quickstart to make things easier both for
the Ubuntu Manual project and to make it easier for other projects to
use Quickstart. Benjamin's final goal for the project is to make it
more efficient and work hard to make the project as easy as possible
for newcomers to get involved with.


=== Ubuntu: How to Measure Canonical’s Business Progress ===

Joe Panettieri of WorksWithU has some suggestions for how Canonical
can better estimate its success as a business and share that
information. He thinks that the fact that there are an estimated 12
million users of Ubuntu is great, however, would like to see more
information out there to build momentum to allow the company to grow

His ideas:
1. Create some sort of phone home process for Ubuntu so that more
accuracy can be achieved in estimating userbase
2. Start disclosing how many Ubuntu systems are being managed
worldwide by the SaaS version of Landscape, or disclose the growth
percentage as more systems are being managed.
3. Open up the information about Ubuntu One. This could mean showing
how much storage is being used on a quarterly basis rather than
specific information about how many users (or paying users) there are.
He also would like to see stats on the Ubuntu One Music Store use as
it becomes available.

=== Ubuntu Improved Enough… No Desire for Windows anymore! ===

Ed Hewitt has the solutions he needs to now be able to use only Ubuntu
and not Windows. This has come due to two things. First, he managed to
fix a problem he has had for several Ubuntu releases where his monitor
has not be detected correctly. After several years of having the
problem, he filed a bug when the work around he'd used in the past
stopped working. He ultimately, however, decided to see if he could
fix it on his own and was successful. The second thing which has made
it possible for Ed to say he can stop using Windows is the fact that
it looks the Steam gaming platform will be coming to Linux. He's a
gamer and it was one of the last things holding him back.

=== Canonical Training Set To Announce New Ubuntu Certified
Professional Certification ===

Amber Graner, writing in Ubuntu User, notes that a new certification
program is being introduced.  The Ubuntu Certified Professional (UCP)
course will be based on Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx, and joins such other
courses offered by Canonical and Authorised Training Partners.  This
information comes from a telephone interview with Billy Cina, Director
of Training for Canonical.  Billy says, "No prior Linux experience is
necessary; IT/system administration experience is a must".
Furthermore, it no longer requires students to take the LPIC-1 exams
in addition to the Ubuntu 199 exam in order to become certified.


=== Canonical and MuleSoft partner to improve Tomcat packaging ===

The H Online reports that middleware specialist MuleSoft, formerly
Mulesource, has announced that it has partnered with Ubuntu sponsor
Canonical. Under the agreement, Mule``Soft will help to improve the
Apache Tomcat packaging for Ubuntu and Debian. COO of Canonical Matt
Asay said that, “We share MuleSoft’s goal in improving the experience
for users of open source software,” adding that, “The work that
MuleSoft is doing will dramatically simplify the installation,
configuration and use of Tomcat for the Debian and Ubuntu
communities.” The two companies hope that the contributions will
improve the "out-of-the-box" usability of Tomcat in the upcoming
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, in Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" and future releases.
Improvements to the Tomcat packaging – the latest stable 6.0.24
release – include Authbind as the standard method for binding Tomcat
to ports lower than 1024, defaulting the security manager to the
disabled state and implementing restarts with the init script.
Additionally, the JSVC set of libraries and applications is no longer
used by the package.


=== Canonical open sources Launchpad and Ubuntu Single Sign On code ===

The H Online advises us that Canonical, sponsor of the Ubuntu project,
has announced that its Canonical Identity Provider code is now
available as open source. The CIP Single Sign On (SSO) authentication
software is a component that was not made available last July when
Launchpad, the site and software that drives Canonical's open source
and project collaboration, was open sourced. Canonical Identity
Provider is part of Canonical Identity Systems, which is a series of
projects to support Canonical's OpenID-based SSO platform, and is
currently used by both the Launchpad and Ubuntu Single Sign On
facilities. More details about the Canonical Identity Provider can be
found on the project's Launchpad page [1] (login required). Canonical
Identity Provider code is released under version 3 of the GNU Affero
General Public License [2] (AGPLv3).
