We will be celebrating the release of Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) which is happening on October 18, 2012. Physical and virtual (IRC & other) Quantal events will be scheduled. Each release cycle a number of efforts happen focused around the release. Globally, UbuntuDeveloperWeek and UbuntuGlobalJam events happen a month or two before the release focusing on new contributors. Parties (listed below) and UbuntuOpenWeek happen near or after the release. If you are thinking about organizing one, BuildingCommunity/RunningReleaseParty has some hints more hints are described in a video how to do a release party. "... can be organized in literally 10 minutes."

Quantal Release Parties

We will plan release parties in future IRC meetings and on the mailing list.

These events are listed chronologically. Details have yet to be confirmed. World wide events are listed on the LoCo directory.

DVD Distribution

The California LoCo has received the following:




Desktop 32-bit



Server 64-bit



If you would like DVDs, please contact Elizabeth Krumbach at lyz@ubuntu.com with your name, address and purpose for request (Need some for your school or library? Handing out at small event?)

This is the only shipment the team gets per cycle, so please don't waste these DVDs and request only a limited number to suit your needs! Follow these tips to help stretch our supply:

  • At tech events, inform users that they can download and burn an ISO: BurningIsoHowto

  • Burn ISOs as they wait! Bring along a system that can burn a DVDR at the event and give them a fresh copy
  • Use the pressed DVDs as display copies and use our CDSleeves for burned copies

  • For installs and demos at an event, try using a USB stick

NOTE: For large conferences please contact Elizabeth Krumbach at lyz@ubuntu.com to request an UbuntuAtConferences conference pack plus DVDs at LEAST 6 weeks prior to the event
