Kubuntu Pre-releases are NOT recommended for:
 * Regular users who are not aware of pre-release issues

Line 7: Line 12:
 * There is a new way to quickly search and access any desktop application's and indicator's menu, called the "HUD". Tap the Alt key and enter some letters and words, and it will show the corresponding entries, including some fuzzy matching. Press enter to execute the action. This one is executed on the current focused application as well as all indicator facilities (like managing emails, sound list, quit…). Also it learns from your previous choices to make the search more and more accurate for you. Kubuntu Pre-releases ARE recommended for:
 * Regular users who want to help us test by finding, reporting, and/or fixing bugs
 * Kubuntu developers
