Recently, the developers have created daily build images of Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, bringing updates for the applications, graphical server and kernel.

The Elementary OS 0.2 Luna unstable is available for both i386 and amd64 architectures.

Using its own window manager and desktop environment (pantheon), Elementary OS is one of the best looking Linux systems. If you a Linux enthusiasts that has an old computer you should try Elementary OS, because it works very well on modest hardware. Recommended hardware requirements: 1 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM and 15 GB of space.

The next Elementary OS system, (Elementary OS 0.3 “Isis”) will be based on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr LTS, but the release date is not yet known.

    This news article/blog post is wrong on several points.
    -The third release of elementary OS is not called Iris, but Isis
    -This is not Isis, but Luna with updated apps, graphical server and Linux kernel
    -Isis has not yet been released and is still in very early development
    -The developers are not releasing any official Isis daily builds
    -Isis will be based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS unlike Luna which is based on previous LTS Ubuntu 12.04

    As follow up to my previous comment explaining that this is nothing more than an up to date version of Luna and has nothing to do with Isis, I notice in your article you say, “But the developers have started work at Elementary OS 0.3 Iris” It’s Isis not Iris.

    Thank you for fixing those, @Geekster!
    This new release should be a really great value for people with newer hardware. It should also mean less packages to update after the first login. Great news all arround!
