Kate Stewart announced Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Alpha 1 release.

comfortable with the occasional breakage. She highly recommends it for
developers and everyone else who is willing to test and report bugs
due to development improvements.

== LoCo News ==

=== Real collaborative design with open source software ===

Martin Albisetti shares news of the recent Ubuntu conference in Buenos
Aires, Argentina, which they plan on now making a regional conference
with the help of the Uruguay LoCo. Albisetti reflects upon a
conversation he had with Guillermo Espertino about how a "small group

had gotten together and started a community called Grafica Libre." He

group.

== Launchpad News ==

=== Launchpad for textual, graphical, and interactive browsers ===

Curtis Hovey gives a thorough review of Launchpad visibility issues
(textual, graphical and interactive) in different browsers. Hovey
stated: "There are inconsistencies in pages you might visit. Some
parts might not work because Launchpad does not have a 'proven way' to
solve a problem." Hovey highly recommends that users should use
interactive browsers since they provide information as needed, and
best performance to complete the task.

 * try to run it in a way that actively engages all units of a cluster
 * repeat: instrument, profile, optimize, grow

== The Planet ==

=== Daniel Holbach: You can help: code review ===

Daniel Holbach puts out a call to the Ubuntu community for help with

queue and help reviewing."

=== Michael Hall: Contributing to Ubuntu: A better Pkgme ===

Michael Hall calls for back-end contributors to James Westby's pkgme
utility, giving very detailed instructions for new contributors. Hall
states: "Currently there is a support for apps using Python and
Distutils, apps compiled by cmake and apps written in Vala. But there
are still many, many applications out there  that aren't covered with
these back-ends, including: Qt apps, HTML5 apps, Flash apps and more.
That's where you, dear contributor, come in."

=== Thorsten Wilms: Switches in Unity menus ===

Thorsten Wilms shares plans considering switch widgets in Unity's
network status menu. He notes that enabling/disabling could be handled
differently in style and placement of the widgets and that the
adoption of "light-switch" style widgets in point and click interfaces
is a mistake as they are often unclear about whether labels refer to
the current state or the state to change to.

The Ubuntu Accessibility team shares news of a new campaign launched
by upstream GNOME Accessibility for improvements "including
performance improvements when the desktop accessibility APIs are
turned on, enhancements to the readability of WebKitGTK+ and
improvements to automatic regression testing which ties in nicely with
the renewed emphasis on QA and automated testing in the Ubuntu

development with its first testing milestone not having surfaced yet,
but so far the ARM performance -- at least as it concerns the Texas
Instruments OMAP4460 -- is looking extremely positive."
