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.
Update Manager renamed, streamlined
In Quantal Beta 1, Update Manager has been relabeled as Software Updater. Presumably, this name is more obvious to the less technically astute user as to what this tool specifically does. Software Updater also has a more streamlined interface, and now automatically checks for any available updates to software on your installation of Ubuntu when launched.
