What is Ubuntu Kylin?

The objective of the Ubuntu Kylin project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is more suitable for Chinese users. We are committed to provide you with a delicate, thoughtful and fully customized Chinese user experience out-of-the-box. For instance, by providing a desktop user interface localized in Chinese and installing common software that Chinese users commonly use by default. Ubuntu Kylin has been a formal member of the Ubuntu family, since UbuntuKylin 13.04. Now, we are working on 14.10.


We are glad to announce the release of Ubuntu Kylin 14.10 Beta 1. In this pre-release, the Linux Kernel is updated to 3.16. This Beta 1 upgrades to Unity 7.3.1, Ubuntu Kylin software center 0.3.3, Sogou IM 1.1.0, Wiznote 2.1.12 and fix more than 20 bugs. Some interesting new features are still under development.

Note That: This is an beta pre-release, which is not suitable for normal users, but for Ubuntu Kylin developers and users who want to help us test by finding, reporting, and/or fixing bugs.
