=== Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Beta 1 Released. ===

Kate Stewart announces the release of Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Beta 1:

“The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the first beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

Codenamed "Quantal Quetzal", 12.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

For the client, this release now has a consolidated Ubuntu image. There is no longer a traditional CD sized image, DVD or alternate image, but
rather a single 800MB Ubuntu image that can be used from USB or DVD. This change does not affect Ubuntu Server, which remains a traditional CD sized image.

With Ubuntu 12.10, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Studio also reached Beta 1 status today. These images, along with Xubuntu will continue to have daily updates for the remainder of the release.”

=== Ted Gould: Desktop in the Cloud ===

Ted Gould details a new feature in Ubuntu 12.10 that he is excited about: the ability to log in to a remote desktop.

The remote desktop is integrated with your Ubuntu SSO, meaning that a user needs only to provide their SSO to be able to see a list of their available servers to connect to.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Welcome to the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 282 for the week September 3 - 9, 2012.

In This Issue

General Community News

Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Beta 1 Released.

Kate Stewart announces the release of Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Beta 1:

“The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the first beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

Codenamed "Quantal Quetzal", 12.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

For the client, this release now has a consolidated Ubuntu image. There is no longer a traditional CD sized image, DVD or alternate image, but rather a single 800MB Ubuntu image that can be used from USB or DVD. This change does not affect Ubuntu Server, which remains a traditional CD sized image.

With Ubuntu 12.10, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Studio also reached Beta 1 status today. These images, along with Xubuntu will continue to have daily updates for the remainder of the release.”

LoCo News

SFD Tunisia 2012

Nizar Kerkeni announces the Tunisia Software Freedom Day 2012. The event “aims to spread the culture of free and open source software and its concepts, to raise awareness of free software and its virtues, and to educate the benefits of using this kind of software everywhere: in education, in government, at home, and in business.”

http://blog.nizarus.org/2012/09/sfd-tunisia-2012

Local LoCo Team Portal Install

Elizabeth Krumbach writes about the low number of developers currently contributing to the LoCo Team Portal and gives instructions for how to create a virtual machine with a development version of the portal for development. Krumbach writes that it “would be great to have experienced folks pitching in.“

http://princessleia.com/journal/?p=6662

Launchpad News

Launchpads page performance report now reusable

Robert Collins of Launchpad writes that the “ page performance report can now be used on regular Apache log files, rather than just the zserver trace log files that Launchpad’s middle tier generates.” The code is in the dev-utils project on launchpad, and Collins shares instructions for checking it out and configuring it.

The Planet

Jonathan Riddell: Why have you stuck with Kubuntu?

Jonathan Riddell shares some comments from a Kubuntu forum thread, which asks users "Why have you stuck with Kubuntu?" Comments include preference for KDE, familiar look, compassionate community and that it “allows me to do more with fewer keystrokes or mouse clicks.”

http://werghdf.blogspot.com/2012/09/why-have-you-stuck-with-kubuntu.html

Michael Hall: How the AppDevUploadProcess was written

Michael Hall shares some insights on how the proposed new specification for developers to get their applications into the Software Center was created. He highlights some of the problems with the previous process, and discusses how the team collaborated to put together a possible solution to fix the issues. The spec was released to the community to gain feedback, and is not yet final.

http://mhall119.com/2012/09/how-the-appdevuploadprocess-was-written/

James Hunt: Call for Testing: Upstart stateful re-exec

James Hunt, from the Canonical Foundations Team, makes a call for testing the new stateful re-exec feature, that is hoped to land in Quantal. ‘If you'd like to help out testing the new "stateful re-exec" feature of Upstart [...], see the details in the link’, Hunt says.

Ubuntu TV: Ubuntu TV Weekly Update #9

The Ubuntu TV update this week covers some of the latest developments, including work to add the Unity Preview features into the TV, and a shifted focus into fixing bugs following the feature freeze that went into effect last week.

http://www.doadjustyourset.com/2012/09/04/ubuntu-tv-weekly-update-9/

Canonical Design Team: 12.10 wallpaper selection finalised

Canonical has announced the final wallpaper selection for 12.10. The collection includes 11 images submitted by the community. While the winning entries will be included in the 12.10 release, you can view the entire shortlist in the Flickr gallery now.

http://design.canonical.com/2012/09/12-10-wallpaper-selection-finalised/

Jono Bacon: Opening Ubuntu Up To the World

Jono Bacon writes about the recently-drafted specification that details how application developers can get their current stable software into Ubuntu. He discusses some of the old issues, and how the new spec addresses them to better serve developers and help move the project forward.

http://www.jonobacon.org/2012/09/06/opening-ubuntu-up-to-the-world/

Daniel Holbach:Hanging out with Ubuntu developers

Daniel Holbach blogs about a new series of Google Hangouts where developers interested in helping to make 12.10 a great release can join to learn more about development and bug fixing. It also serves as a great way to get to know the developers a little better. Sessions start this week and will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays for anyone interested in attending.

http://daniel.holba.ch/blog/2012/09/hanging-out-with-ubuntu-developers/

No Quantal Beta 1 for Xubuntu

The Xubuntu team didn’t release Beta 1 this cycle citing, among the reasons, a desire to fix several important bugs and reduce the image size in order to make Beta 2 the very best possible. Despite the absence of Beta 1, daily updates will be released and Xubuntu Beta 2 will be released toward the end of the month.

http://xubuntu.org/news/no-quantal-beta-1-for-xubuntu/

Thomas Ward: Servers and PHP FPM: The New Method in Quantal

Thomas Ward writes that the PHP FPM package has been modified in both Debian and Ubuntu to listen on a UNIX socket by default, running at /var/run/php5-fpm.sock, and stresses: “Anyone upgrading to Quantal from Precise or earlier which have servers using php5-fpm assuming that it’ll continue to listen on 127.0.0.1:9000 will need to change their configurations to adapt for this change!”

http://lordoftime.info/?p=39

Ted Gould: Desktop in the Cloud

Ted Gould details a new feature in Ubuntu 12.10 that he is excited about: the ability to log in to a remote desktop. By using the guest account feature, users can connect to their remote desktops located anywhere on the Internet. The remote desktop is integrated with your Ubuntu SSO, meaning that a user needs only to provide their SSO to be able to see a list of their available servers to connect to.

Ubuntu Women: Ubuntu Women Leadership Election Results!

Cheri Francis of the Ubuntu Women team announces a tie in the election of an additional member of the Ubuntu Women Leadership team. As a result, both Silvia and Flavia have been added to the team.
