    Default Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope" Alpha 3 Released

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope" Alpha 3 Released

    The last Ubuntu 9.04 development update was in the middle of December (Alpha 2), but today Mark Shuttleworth's development posse has come out with a new update for the Jaunty Jackalope. In Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 3 is the latest code based upon the Linux 2.6.28 kernel, X Server 1.6, and EXT4 installation support as we previously detailed. The Ubiquity installer also has home encryption support within this release. The Ubuntu Wiki page detailing the features and download links for Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 3 can be found here...

    Just a minor point; article says 2.6.28 kernel, but intro post says 2.6.29.

    Posting from the LiveCD of Ubuntu 9.04 alpha 3.

    The only hardware I own without GPL drivers that I'm aware of is my nVidia GPU.

    Printer : Ubuntu picks wrong driver
    Scanner : Ubuntu oblivious, doesn't Just Work
    DigiPro tablet : Ubuntu oblivious, doesn't Just Work
    Motorola v325i on USB : Jaunty has old BitPim release; doesn't Just Work
    Wiimote via bluetooth : all features Just Work in wmgui
    EZonics EZcam USB webcam : Ubuntu oblivious
    integrated webcam : Just Works at full 1200x1600 resolution
    TI-84+ graphing calculator : Installed TiLP from repos, connect, and..
    Msg: Error occured while writing to the device.
    System: Input/output error (errno = 5)
    TI-84+ doesn't Just Work
    fidelity DV-5900 cam/webcam : Just Works

    Difference from 8.10 : +1 (integrated webcam)

    In other words, better, but still not good enough. Let's change that before it goes gold, shall we?

    That is why I'm on Jaunty in the first place, don't you worry.

    Well I only test the kernel (and several Kanotix users), I don't use GNOME and KDE4 (kubuntu), so I do not really need test the rest
