After various discussions, investigation and tinkering the Ubuntu
Studio team have decided to re-base the project on XFCE. The team
simple feel that Unity and GNOME-Shell do not fit our target audience
or intended workflow.

We will be working toward using a custom UI which will feature Avant
Window Navigator prominently over top of XFCE. As usual, new art and
packages will be introduced as well.

We will also be working to ensure a smooth upgrade path for current
GNOME users is possible.
