Draft announcement. Anything to add/remove?
I intend to mail this out once the images have been propagated to the
mirrors.


The Ubuntu/Xubuntu teams are proud to present the second beta release of
Xubuntu 6.06.

Since it shares the common base system and the Desktop CD installer with
Ubuntu 6.06 beta 2,
this release contains the fixes mentioned in the Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu
announcement.

The Xubuntu Desktop CD now logs in automatically. Beta 1 had a bug and
prompted for a username and password
which were not mentioned anywhere prominently enough.

The Xubuntu specific installer bug of freezing when selecting the time zone
has also been corrected.

Please download using Bittorrent if possible.

The final version of Xubuntu 6.06 is expected to be released in June.

== New since Beta 1 ==

 * the artwork is more consistent, but it is going to be further polished
for the release
 * the Xarchiver archive manager is added
 * several new panel plugins are added (battery, weather, xkb, verve, etc.)
 * the Xfce core components are updated to 4.4beta1 or later snapshots to
fix several bugs and
   to add new translations

== Hardware requirements ==

 * to run the live Desktop CD a minimum of 128M of RAM is required
 * to install to disk using the Desktop CD installer, a root partition of at
least 1.2G is required.

== Known issues ==

* rebooting of the Desktop CD can fail so manual reboot from the switches is
required
