"Trust only movement.  Life happens at the level of events, not of words.  Trust movement."  
 ― Alfred Adler

The first Alpha of the Trusty Tahr (to become 14.04) has now been released!

This alpha features images for Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, 
UbuntuKylin and Xubuntu.

Pre-releases of Trusty Tahr are *not* encouraged for anyone
needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running
into occasional, even frequent breakage.  They are, however,
recommended for Ubuntu flavor developers and those who want to 
help in testing, reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting
this release ready.

Alpha 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider
testing. This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some
bugs.

While these Alpha 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted in
the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve Trusty Tahr.  
In particular, once newer daily images are available, system
installation bugs identified in the Alpha 1 installer should be verified
against the current daily image before being reported in Launchpad.
Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already been fixed
wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy trying to make
14.04 the best Ubuntu release yet.  Always ensure your system is up to
date before reporting bugs.

There were been some adjustments to the release schedule for 14.04 
in the last vUDS, so for the latest plans, please check:
