General Community News

Ubuntu 9.04 reaches end of life

Ubuntu announced its 9.04 release almost 18 months ago, on April 23, 2009. As with the earlier releases, Ubuntu committed to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months. The support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 9.04 will reach end of life on Friday, October 23, 2010. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 9.04.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 9.04 is via Ubuntu 9.10. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KarmicUpgrades. Note that upgrades to version 10.04 LTS and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via an upgrade first to 9.10, then to 10.04 LTS. Both Ubuntu 9.10 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS continue to be actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug fixes. All announcements of official security updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list, information about which may be found at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce.

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes, schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.

http://fridge.ubuntu.com/node/2132

Announcing the Ubuntu Application Review Process

Are you an application developer who would like to see your application appear in the Ubuntu Software Center and available by millions of Ubuntu users? Today we are announcing a new process we are trialing which is easier and more accessible for application authors to get their apps in Ubuntu.

Recently we formed a community-driven Application Review Board that is committed to providing high quality reviews of applications submitted by application authors to ensure they are safe and work well. Importantly, only new applications that are not present in an existing official Ubuntu repository (such as main/universe) are eligible in this process (e.g a new version of an application in an existing official repository is not eligible). Also no other software can depend on the application being submitted (e.g. development libraries are not eligible), only executable applications (and content that is part of them) are eligible, and not stand-alone content, documentation or media, and applications must be Open Source and available under an OSI approved license.

The process is simple:

  • Prepare your app ready for review.
  • Submit it for review.
  • Await feedback and if the feedback is positive, your application will be added to the Ubuntu Software Center.

Would you like to learn more about how to get your app in the *Ubuntu Software Center?

Taking a Step Back With Fresh Eyes

Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager writes - Scale is an interesting thing. It affects all kinds of things. Companies grow and don’t seem quite the same as they used to. Bands make it big and then they disappear up their own arses. Restaurants get popular and the food often starts to go downhill. One way or another, it seems that the old wives/husbands tale of scale is that when things get bigger, quality can often suffer.

Jono goes on to say - Like many, I have seen this in the company I work for (Canonical). I joined Canonical when it was pretty small. We had an office in London that could only fit about twelve people in it, I knew everyone, and they all knew me. Things are different now. We are a big company now with things like HR and Finance departments, we need a company directory, and we have staff events that have the echoing resonance of “by eck, there are a lot of people here, I remember when…“.

Recently my sub-conscious has been pestering me about this. I have been noticing that while our community continues to grow, which is awesome, it feels like getting involved is getting more complicated. We now have hundreds of teams, many different diverse types of contribution, and a collection of processes and assessment procedures to ensure we accept quality work into the distribution. If you have no idea of MOTU/core-dev/PPAs/Daily Builds/Package Sets/Archive Reorg is, you are probably going to find you have a lot of reading on your hands.

I want to change this. I want to make it better and easier for people to participate.

No one is at fault for us having this complexity; it is part of a passionate community growing every day, but I think we need to take a step back and take a good hard look at how it feels to get involved if you are new around here.

LoCo News

Kentucky Loco Team Re-approved

This month the Kentucky LoCo team was up for renewal. We had 5 of our members present for the meeting. All in all it went well. The only negative against us that I saw was that we have not been doing TeamReports. We have since corrected this by starting this page. The result was a unanimous approval from the LoCo council members present. Thanks to all who were there to support the team.

Making Launchpad more informative

Brian Murray writes - Have you ever been subscribed to a bug report with a lot of duplicates? How about not directly subscribed to the bug report with the duplicates but one of the duplicates?

I have and thought it would be helpful to know which duplicate I was subscribed to rather than having to look at every duplicate to see which one was mine. You can now determine this on edge by mousing over your name in the “From duplicates” portion of the subscribers portlet.

Belinda Lopez: Growing List of Schools Using Ubuntu

Belinda writes "In case you ever doubt that your work is making a difference, just take a look at this growing list of schools using Ubuntu and its derivatives. And an entire project of kids building their own machines to take home and use after completing class – impressive!"

Duncan McGreggor: The Growing Linux Multi-touch Community

Duncan observes that not only has there been a growing community with multitouch and Linux systems, but also with human interaction. He discusses developments in X.org, PyMT, Qt and GTK, as well as practical implementations such as touch-screen point of sales systems and running Ubuntu on a phone.

Jordan Mantha: Edubuntu Makeover

Jordan Mantha talks the work that was done by Edubuntu community members Jonathan Carter and Stéphane Graber to get the edubuntu website relaunched. He talks about the site being very slick and in-line with the main Ubuntu website, the new edubuntu.org is much more community oriented. There are social network badges on the right side to link users to Edubuntu resources onFacebook, YouTube, Identi.ca, Twitter. On the left side there is a widget with the latest Edubuntu project status updates on Identi.ca.

Ara Pulido: My experience upgrading UNE 10.04 to Maverick (and yours!)

The Ubuntu Netbook Edition has gone through major changes in the Maverick release cycle. It will ship with Unity, a new user interface developed by Canonical. Designing an upgrade system for a system that changed a lot can be quite challenging. Ara decided to test the upgrade process from Lucid to Maverick and wrote up a great summary.

Danny Piccirillo: Know of a cool app that deserves more attention? Nominate it for the next Ubuntu post-install guide!

A year ago i saw a lack of easy to understand yet comprehensive getting started guides for new users, so i decided to make one. I spent hours reviewing software, taking screenshots, and other exciting stuff in order to make a post-install guide which helps new users get used to and understand Ubuntu, and also recommend all sorts of apps that may be of interest to users of any level of experience. Please subscribe if you want to catch my next one!

Now it seems only appropriate to let all of you to nominate your favorite apps to be featured in the next iteration of my Ubuntu post-install guides. Just post a comment with as much information about the app(s) as possible: name, link, description, your opinion, etc. and i'll check it out!

John Baer: Artwork Team – What are we doing here?

Vishnoo posted a thread to the Ubuntu Artwork List asking the question – what are we doing here?

This thread was in response to an earlier thread by Saleel Velankar submitted to the Ayatana list titled “Community Artwork and Lessons learned from Gaia10″ where he describes his “art” experience with the Gaia10 project this past summer.

I am amazed at the high quality artwork produced by Canonical for Ubuntu which permits Ubuntu to complete against other commercial products such as OSX and Windows. The problem is these products are created and release with little if any community involvement.

Inclusion and exclusion are strong team motivators and my guess is right now the Artwork team is feeling “benched” and excluded from the rest of the community.

Thorsten Wilms: Ubuntu Artwork Crisis

Thorsten Wilms talks about the issue of people not being happy with the state of the Ubuntu Artwork team and takes a moment to post about the following areas:

  • First post
  • Motivation
  • Discussions
  • Direction
  • Design Team
  • Wallpapers

Fglrx Finally Works With Ubuntu 10.10 (Xorg 1.9, Kernel 2.6.35/36) [ATI]

Fglrx was updated yesterday in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and what's special about this is that it finally supports Xorg 1.9 and 2.6.35 kernel. Up until now, ATI users who've tried to install Fglrx or upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 would get a blank screen.

Handsfree Ubuntu

Ubuntu developer Canonical is experimenting with new hardware sensors as it looks at computing beyond the keyboard and mouse. All computer users are used to controlling their desktop with a mouse and keyboard. But how about controlling your PC without using your hands at all and just using your body?

Mark Shuttleworth: A kind invitation

The openSUSE board has extended an invitation to the openSUSE conference happening on 20-23 October. One of the themes of the openSUSE conference this year is "Collaboration Across Borders" in free and open source software communities, administration and development. Mark notes that he himself wouldn't be able to make it, but would sponsor an Ubuntu community member who would be able to.

Canonical Showcases at IDF San Francisco

Canonical showcased new products at the Intel Developer Forum last week. The Canonical stand had demonstrations for Ubuntu Light, Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 and the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) proposition. The hardware on show highlighted the breadth of services on offer leading up to the end of the year and the work with Intel on the UEC product in particular, was testament to the commitment shown by the project teams from both companies to provide a full enterprise solution. This is the third year Canonical have had a booth at IDF, following on from Mark Shuttleworth’s Keynote speech in 2009. Canonical continue to work with Intel and hardware partners to enable Ubuntu to be not only a Windows alternative but a real Operating System of choice for end users in both mature and developing markets.

Ubuntu, Canonical Wallow in Muddy Waters with Contributors' Agreements

If you believe everything you read on the Internet, then Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu distribution, can't do anything right. Part of the reason for this attitude is that, because of Ubuntu's popularity, Canonical is under a scrutiny so intense that every fault is magnified. Another part of the reason is that Canonical is visibly struggling with balancing its commercial efforts with being a corporate citizen of free and open source software (FOSS).

Can Ubuntu Attract More Hardware Partners?

Canonical, promoter of the Ubuntu Linux, is hosting an Ubuntu Hardware Summit for PC partners on Sept. 24. The big news involves uTouch and a dual-boot strategy vs. Windows. The big question: Can Canonical convince more PC and mobile device makers to embrace Ubuntu amid rising competition from Google Android?

Making a Difference; Selling a Difference

See the difference? A few days ago, Mark Shuttleworth took some time to address critics who scoff at Canonical's contributions to GNOME and the Linux kernel itself by sharing his thoughts on the subject in his personal blog. The post, titled "Reflections on Ubuntu, Canonical and the march to free software adoption", reflecting on Canonical and Ubuntu's contributions to the world of free and open source software. There are a couple of interesting stories, some obvious rationalization, some genuine insights, and more than a few nods to the various forces that come together to create a Linux distribution.
