Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr is still under massive development, the second alpha 2 version of Ubuntu 14.04 being released on in late January.
The Canonical developers say that Ubuntu 14.04 Alpha 2 is the best release in Canonical’s history and Mark Shuttleworth is advising people to test Ubuntu 14.o4 in all the available flavors, in order to give the developers a hand in bug reporting.
This is what Mark said, on his blog:
“Of course, my testing was relatively lightweight. I saw tons of major improvements in shared apps like LibreOffice and Firefox and Chromium, and each of the desktop environments feels true to its values, diverse as those are. What I bet those teams would appreciate is all of you taking 14.04 for a spin yourselves. It’s stable enough for any of us who use Linux heavily as an engineering environment, and of course you can use a live boot image off USB if you just want to test drive the future. Cloud images are also available for server testing on all the major clouds.”
While the Beta version of Ubuntu 14.04 will be released on the 27th of March, 2014, the stable version of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr will be released on the 17th of April, 2014.
