Go forth and enjoy all of the saucy goodness. Now is a time to 
celebrate, breathe, relax, and enjoy. Thank you to everyone who was a 
part of making this release happen. We have lots of exciting ideas and 
new things to look forward to for 14.04.  I look forward to discussing 
and implementing them over the course of the next several weeks leading 
up to UDS. For now, I'm enjoying saucy and I trust you are too.

Happy Testing!

The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 13.10
for Desktop, Server, Cloud, Phone, and Core products.

Codenamed "Saucy Salamander", 13.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.  The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

Ubuntu 13.10 introduces the first release of Ubuntu for phones and Ubuntu
Core for the new 64-bit ARM systems (the "arm64" architecture, also known
as AArch64 or ARMv8), and improved AppArmor confinement. In addition to
these flagship features there are also major updates throughout.

Ubuntu Server 13.10 includes the Havana release of OpenStack, alongside
deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when
deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public
clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops.  Several key server
technologies, from MAAS to Ceph, have been updated to new upstream
versions with a variety of new features.

Maintenance updates will be provided for Ubuntu 13.10 for 9 months,
through July 2014.

The newest Kubuntu 13.10, Edubuntu 13.10, Xubuntu 13.10, Lubuntu 13.10,
Ubuntu GNOME 13.10, UbuntuKylin 13.10, and Ubuntu Studio 13.10 are also
being released today.  More details can be found for some of these at
their individual release announcements:
