<div dir="ltr"><pre>Welcome to the Saucy Salamander Beta 1 release, which will in time
<span class="" id="line-2"></span>become the 13.10 release.
<span class="" id="line-3"></span>
<span class="" id="line-4"></span>This alpha features images for Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME,
<span class="" id="line-5"></span>Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu.
<span class="" id="line-6"></span>
<span class="" id="line-7"></span>Pre-releases of Saucy Salamander are *not* encouraged for anyone needing
<span class="" id="line-8"></span>a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into
<span class="" id="line-9"></span>occasional, even frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for
<span class="" id="line-10"></span>Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and
<span class="" id="line-11"></span>fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release ready.
<span class="" id="line-12"></span>
<span class="" id="line-13"></span>At the end of the 12.10 development cycle, the Ubuntu desktop and server
<span class="" id="line-14"></span>flavours decided that they would reduce the number of milestone images
<span class="" id="line-15"></span>going forward and the focus would concentrate on daily quality and
<span class="" id="line-16"></span>fortnightly testing rounds known as cadence testing.  Based on that
<span class="" id="line-17"></span>change, the Ubuntu products themselves will not have a Beta 1 release.
<span class="" id="line-18"></span>Their first milestone release will be the  beta release on the 26th of
<span class="" id="line-19"></span>September 2013. Other Ubuntu flavours have the option to release using
<span class="" id="line-20"></span>the usual milestone schedule.  Further schedule details can be found:
