Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) Final Beta released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the final beta release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

Codenamed “Trusty Tahr”, 14.04 LTS continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

This beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, but also the Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu flavours.

In addition to the above flavours, it’s expected that, despite missing the final beta, Mythbuntu will be participating in the final release.

This is a very exciting LTS (long term support) release for Ubuntu’s family of community flavours, as this is the first time that all of our flavours have applied and been approved for LTS status, some for the same five years as Ubuntu itself, and some for a shorter period of three years. This will be highlighted on a per-flavour basis in the final release announcement.

The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 14.04 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on April 17th, 2014.

Geary is a lightweight email program designed around conversations and built for the GNOME desktop.

Geary is a new email reader for GNOME designed to let you read your email quickly and effortlessly. Its interface is based on conversations, so you can easily read an entire discussion without having to click from message to message. Geary is still in early development and has limited features today, but we’re planning to add lightning-fast searching, multiple account support, and much more.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Default wallpaper Revealed

From canonical design team

For the last couple of weeks we’ve been working on the new Ubuntu Wallpaper. It is never easy trust me. The most difficult part was to work out the connection between the old wallpapers and the new look and feel – Suru. The wallpaper has become an integral part of the ubuntu brand, the strong colours and gradated flow are powerful important elements. We realised this when looking from a distance at someone laptop it really does shout UBUNTU.
