Thanks a ton for the news article. I did not get the release notes
written specific to Xubuntu, I will try to do that tomorrow. I just ran
out of energy today, with testing this week. Today, we have the Ubuntu
release notes to work with -

So far, this looks like a great release! Next week will be the final
testing for Maverick. We will release on 2010-10-10.

Thank you again for your help and support. It is greatly appreciated.
