The day has finally come that we see the release of Ubuntu v7.04, or perhaps better known as Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. For months now at Phoronix we have been covering the beta and alpha releases of Feisty Fawn, but today is the final non-LTS release. Desktop and server downloads are available from Ubuntu.com. Likewise, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu will all be available today. Ubuntu Studio should also be available shortly. You may be interested in our Visual History of Ubuntu. After you have given Feisty Fawn a try, be sure to share your thoughts on it in the Phoronix Forums.
