=== Translators: you are awesome and you should be proud of it ===

David Planella, Ubuntu Community Team writes about Translations Awesomeness -

As you all know the Meerkat is out.

After the release frenzy, I’d like to take a step back and use the
opportunity to thank the people from the part of the community that’s
closer to me: translators.

For those not familiar with them, they are a vital piece of the
diverse group of individuals that bring Ubuntu to millions: they
enable almost everyone to use Ubuntu in their own language. With every
release they manage to organize, coordinate and perform the
translation effort for the applications that are part of our Operating

We’ve got more than 1600 translatable applications for Ubuntu in
Launchpad, and believe me, translating even the set of most visible
ones is an incredible achievement. Not to forget the effort of
upstream translation teams, the work of which is also reflected in

All in all, the end result is something to be truly proud of.

For the full post go to:


=== Enabling Automatic Bug Expiry ===

What is about to change? Launchpad has always advertised that we
auto-expire incomplete bugs matching certain conditions, but we
haven’t done this for awhile now.  We are ready to turn this feature
back on.  This means that bugs that are considered inactive will have
their status automatically changed from Incomplete to Expired.  For
more detail on how Launchpad determines if a bug is inactive,visit our
Bug Expiry help page.
This change will take effect in about two weeks, sometime during the
week of 18 October 2010.

=== Unity and uTouch ===

One of the most exciting things about the Ubuntu 10.10 release has
been the delivery of the Unity ‘shell’ in Ubuntu Netbook Edition,
which delivers a very different user experience to that in the main
desktop edition. It also features the new Ubuntu Multitouch framework,
called uTouch. The Canonical blog shows off some of the new multitouch
features and also includes videos.


=== Multitouch News ===

Duncan McGreggor, Engineering Manager, Product Strategy for Canonical,
posted two blog entries with updates on multitouch in Ubuntu this
week. The Ubuntu 10.10 release shipped with the new uTouch stack. He
writes about how to get involved, posts a video demoing its features
and writes about the Qt community and their involvement in the uTouch

== LoCo News ==

=== LoCo Teams on the Hall Of Fame ===

As you may know, during Maverick cycle we introduced statistics from
our testers to be reflected in the Ubuntu Hall Of Fame. Well, now, and
thanks to my good friend Daniel Holbach, we have, not only individual
statistics, but also statistics by LoCo team.

=== Logging of Ubuntu LoCo Teams core channels ===

Greetings from the LoCo Council, We would like to take a moment and
discuss some ideas with you about implementing LoCo Bot logging of
#ubuntu- channels on freenode. There is a method to this madness, and
this would only apply to
#ubuntu-<loco-team-name> (*main channels only, not off-topic ones*).

The LoCo Council have discussed the issue of LoCo-team channel logging
with the IRC Council and we've taken advice from Jono Bacon, the
Ubuntu Community manager. It was recommended to us that all LoCo teams
should enable logging
for their main channel, and that we open this up for discussion on
this mailing list.

For many Approved teams this is already a standard practice and we
thank you for it, but we would like to encourage this practice among
the rest of the teams for a couple of good reasons.

=== Slovenian Ubuntu 10.10 Release Party was a Success ===

Firstly, David Klasinc presented the new Ubuntu release in his own
unique way, and also gave a presentation on the novelties of Ubuntu
Netbook release. He emphasized the e-mail client called Evolution, and
the Ubuntu Music Store, which is integrated in the Rhythmbox music
player. Especially for the audience, he also demonstrated how to
purchase music through the above mentioned service. During his
presentation, he also came across a few problems which amused the
audience. After that, he also presented cloud service Ubuntu One.

=== Ralph Janke: AskUbuntu reaches 2000 questions - 5000 answers -
4000 users - 20000 votes ===

Only 65 days after conception of the private beta after the proposal
was accepted on Area 51, and after the successful launch as permanent
Q&A site in our new Ubuntu design, we have reached the 2000 question
threshold. Those 2000 questions have been answered to 93% with 5000
answers by 4000 users. 20000 votes have been cast for the questions
and answers.


=== Dustin Kirkland: Introducing the Bikeshed Package! ===

Dustin, like many of us, has many scripts used locally to achieve all
kinds of things. Some of these tools and utilities may be appropriate
for packaging in Ubuntu, but often this never happens. Dustin created
a Bikeshed branch in Launchpad where contributors can drop their
scripts for wider use or for someone else to package up.


=== Martin Owens: Ubuntu Manga Chapter 7! ===

Martin has released the installfest chapter of the 'romantic comic'
Ubunchu. He recommends it to anyone who is involved with advocacy.


=== Jorge Castro: AskUbuntu Growing Fast ===

Jorge reports that the AskUbuntu support site has seen great growth
recently and also suggests some tools that may be used to better use
the site. Stackapplet allows you to monitor activities from your
Ubuntu indicator area, while DroidStack keeps you up to date on the go
on your Android device.


== In The Press ==

=== Is Ubuntu 10.10 Worth the Upgrade? ===

Itching to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10? Not so fast! Look before you leap,
you may want to stick with Ubuntu 10.04, especially if you’re a
netbook user.


=== Schools Combine Netbooks, Open Source ===

Patricia Mohr writes about - The marriage of netbooks and open source
has given schools the power to create and expand 1-to-1 computing.

In the 'Let Learning Goals Lead' section Mohr writes - Dan Maas, the
chief information officer for the 15,500-student Littleton public
school system in Colorado, started installing Ubuntu-based netbooks in
his schools after the district identified student writing as an area
it wanted to improve.

=== Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat Pokes Its Head Out ===

Version 10.10 of Ubuntu, also known as "Maverick Meerkat," has
arrived. The Linux operating system comes in three different versions:
one of desktops and laptops, one for servers and one with a special
Unity interface designed specifically for netbooks. For version 10.10,
Canonical has put a great deal of focus on the OS's cloud offerings.


=== 10 Things to Know About Maverick Meerkat ===

=== Augen Table Will Dual-Boot Ubuntu and Android ===

Augen, the company from Florida, has announced that one of its six
forthcoming tablets will run both Android and Ubuntu. The tablet
factor comprises a detachable 10.2-inch tablet with an
enhanced-brightness and high-resolution 1024-by-768 Multi-Touch
Capacitive Screen; its base, meanwhile, includes a QWERTY
chocolate-style LED backlit keyboard. Each device provides around 10
hours of autonomous work, but docked together they'd provide up to 15

Meerkat release of Ubuntu OS. According to Jason, " ...Ubuntu 10.10,

an overhauled user interface for its netbook edition. Additionally,
Ubuntu Linux Desktop Builds on App Store, Cloud Service Strengths".

=== New Ubuntu Support Site Debuts ===

Christopher Tozzi, The Var Guy publication writes - Just in time for
the Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) release, Stack Exchange has
introduced a new website, called askubuntu.com, dedicated to Q&A for
Ubuntu users, developers and partners. Here’s a look, and some
thoughts on where the site fits into the Ubuntu ecosystem.

For more about Christopher's thoughts go to:

== In The Blogosphere ==

=== Ubuntu - The Flagship Linux Desktop Distro ===

Jeff Hoogland says whether everyone likes it not, "Ubuntu has done
wonders for the Linux  desktop."  He goes on to show data comparing
Ubuntu and Linux in Google Trends.  He ends with saying that Ubuntu
has been the least painful to configure of all the distributions that
he has used so far and the one he would recommend to all.


=== Kubuntu 10.10 ===

Jim Lynch does a thorough review of the Kubuntu 10.10 desktop.  He
looks at What's New, Installation, Default Software, and more.  He
rants a bit about a few things but overall gives a good rating.


== In Other News ==

=== The Trouble With GUIs ===

Like everything else in life, it boils down to having the right tool
for the right job ... and the command line is like that all-purpose
screwdriver that we all have," said Slashdot blogger Barbara Hudson.
"It opens paint cans, makes a handy chisel, pry bar and wedge -- we
grab it, get the job done, and move on.


=== 42 day widget ===

Yesterday [October 10, 2010] we [Canonical Design Team] successfully
released the new versions of Ubuntu family. As you all know, yesterday
was such a special date which occurs every 100 years: 10/10/10. But if
you are a fan of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as we are, you
would also know that 42 is THE answer. Since 101010 is 42 in binary,
and Ubuntu is our 42, we couldn’t help to take this date very
To celebrate this special event where hopes, people and bits get
together, we created a little widget that you can easily embed on your
website (more pictures on the way):

=== Planning and Executing the Linaro Cycle ===

The Linaro release cycle is similar to the Ubuntu one but does has
some subtle differences, specifically around the planning stages. This
presentation shows how Linaro plans, implements and finally releases
software every six months. The slides for this presentation can be
found on slideshare.net and are available in many formats on my Linaro
wiki page.


=== Full Circle Podcast on YouTube ===

In a bold (and some say rash) experiment, the Full Circle Podcast is
on YouTube. We’ve created a YouTube channel for the Podcast with two
episodes. Podcast Episode #11 in individual segments as
audio-with-banner, Side-Pod #4 in two parts: Part one is the
news/opinion section, part 2 is our first Screencast of sorts
