Ubuntu 12.10, codenamed Quantal Quetzal, is set for release on 18 October. Beta 1 is available now, and here are 10 notable changes from the last stable version of Ubuntu, 12.04.
Too big for a CD
Perhaps it was inevitable, but the installation disc image of Ubuntu has grown to where it can no longer fit on a blank data CD. The size of the ISO file of the Desktop edition of Quantal Beta 1 starts at 800MB. So it can only be put on a blank data DVD, or on a USB flash stick that has at least that amount of storage space. To update your computer if it has Ubuntu 12.04 installed, you’ll have to do it through the Internet. No upgrade disc images of 12.10 are being officially provided.
