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.
Let’s start by discussing the updated components that comprise the underlying architecture of Quantal Quetzal Beta 1. As with most Linux distros that get a new version, the first thing usually to get upgraded is Linux itself. The final release of Ubuntu 12.10 will be based on Linux kernel 3.5.3. Specifically, Ubuntu’s developers spin their own customized variants of 3.5.3, and the one being used in Quantal Beta 1 is Ubuntu Linux 3.5.0-13.14.
