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.
Quantal Beta 1 updates LibreOffice to 3.6.1, but what’s noteworthy is that the office suite now supports the Ubuntu App Menu. An application with this support has its menu bar appear on the top toolbar of the Ubuntu UI whenever you move the mouse pointer to this area while the application is active. Ubuntu’s developers have been working to unify most applications included under the Ubuntu App Menu; LibreOffice is one of the last to get this treatment that’s specific to Ubuntu’s UI.
