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.
3D effects user interface
The Unity 2D user interface, meant for running on computers not equipped with 3D graphics chipsets, has been dropped from Quantal Beta 1. It’s been replaced with a new tool that enables Ubuntu’s UI to implement 3D effects on a computer whether or not it has a 3D graphics chipset.
