timebecome the 13.10 release.This alpha features images for Edubuntu,
Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME,Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Studio and
Xubuntu.Pre-releases of Saucy Salamander are *not* encouraged for
anyone needinga stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running
intooccasional, even frequent breakage.  They are, however,
recommended forUbuntu developers and those who want to help in
testing, reporting, andfixing bugs as we work towards getting this
release ready.At the end of the 12.10 development cycle, the Ubuntu
desktop and serverflavours decided that they would reduce the number
of milestone imagesgoing forward and the focus would concentrate on
daily quality andfortnightly testing rounds known as cadence testing.
Based on thatchange, the Ubuntu products themselves will not have a
Beta 1 release.Their first milestone release will be the  beta release
on the 26th ofSeptember 2013. Other Ubuntu flavours have the option to
release usingthe usual milestone schedule.  Further schedule details
