Thursday, December 1, 2011

It's this week that Canonical has announced the first of two alpha releases for their Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin line.

There aren't many visual changes or upgrades but there are some in terms of software choices:

  • Banshee, Tomboy and gbrainy have been removed (for now)
  • Rhythmbox is the default music app, although it lacks the Ubuntu One Music Store plugin at this stage
  • Firefox 9 Beta and Thunderbird 9 Beta are included
  • The Linux Kernel is version 3.2.0-2
  • The latest Ubuntu Software Centre adds support for multiple screenshots
  • Squid3 is now installed by the squid package, Cobbler is now based on the upstream 2.2.2 version, and the Openstack components are now based off Essex 2

That's all the software choices at this point of release and as always, you can download the daily builds here.
