## Spotlight: Cosmic Release Imminent and New Core Developer

Cosmic is in its final weeks [1] of testing. Next week the final freeze
will occur and a release candidate published. If you are interested head
over to the daily ISO page [2] and give Cosmic a spin! Developers are
resolving any significant bugs and tidying documentation for the release
which is scheduled for Oct 18th.

Also a great cause for celebration in this issue is that Ubuntu Server
Team's Andreas Hasenack [3] earned a spot as an Ubuntu Core Developer
[4]. Andreas has brought an additional level of excellence to Ubuntu in
his maintenance of crucial Ubuntu packages, community involvement,
broad technical knowledge and eye toward quality.  We are excited he now
has 'keys to the kingdom', allowing him to update and maintain any
package in Ubuntu.
