In order to work on and actively improve Ubuntu, fixes need to be built, tested and integrated into the current development release. (Fixes for stable release follow their own policy.)

On these page we'll discuss measures to safely run and test using the active development release, what to do when you run into problems and alternative ways to test and run development releases.

Using TestDrive

TestDrive is a unique, Ubuntu tool for "test-driving" daily development snapshots of Ubuntu (desktop, server, netbook, Kubuntu, etc) by incrementally syncing and running it in a virtual machine. TestDrive provides a simple mechanism for any technical or non-technical Ubuntu user to test and provide feedback on the current Ubuntu release under development.

Ubuntu users of 10.04 (and later) can install TestDrive directly from the archive, from the Software Center or the command line.

sudo apt-get install testdrive

You can then sync and launch various Ubuntu flavors, either from the command line:
