We’re preparing Kubuntu 12.10, the Quantal Quetzal, for distribution in October 2012. With this early Alpha pre-release, you can see what we are trying out in preparation for our next version. Read on for highlights and information about known issues.

  • Regular users who are not aware of pre-release issues
  • Anyone who needs a stable system

  • Anyone in a production environment with data or workflows that need to be reliable

Kubuntu Pre-releases ARE recommended for:

  • Regular users who want to help us test by finding, reporting, and/or fixing bugs
  • Kubuntu developers
