Ubuntu has put out the final beta of Ubuntu 14.10 codenamed Utopic Unicorn for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.
Utopic Final Beta features updated versions of the core set of packages (including a current 3.16.2 kernel and apparmor improvements) and bug fixes.
Besides images from Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, the beta includes Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu flavors.
Ubuntu developers say the beta images are “reasonably free” of showstopper CD build or installer bugs and represent a recent snapshot of 14.10 with features that will ship with the final release due on October 23, 2014.
Ubuntu 14.10 is not a long term support release of the distribution since the support lifespan for Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Core, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin along with all other flavours is only nine months.
Download links for the Ubuntu 14.10 final beta are available on the Ubuntu ‘Fridge’ site.
