Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) Preview

¡Ya ha salido la preview de la nueva versión de Ubuntu!

Recordemos que muchos de nosotros la primera vez que instalamos Ubuntu fué con una preview... y no estuvo nada mal. Incluyo muchísimas mejoras, entre ellas os pego las más importantes (en inglés), aunque el plato fuerte es sin duda el ayer salido escritorio Gnome 2.10:

* GNOME 2.10 -- Very fresh... Released yesterday!
* X.org 6.8.2
* Kickstart compatibility for automatic installations
* Several new desktop package-management tools to make it even
easier to stay up to date
* An ultra-fast boot process, with optimized init process and
special optimizations for the hotplug system
* Improved hardware support on a range of platforms -- laptops in
particular gain improved suspend/hibernation support and processor
frequency scaling
* Unified and improved hardware detection between the install and
live CDs, which gives us live CDs on powerpc and amd64 too
* A range of improvements related to internationalization,
translations, and different keyboard layouts, including a
new smart keyboard selector that guesses your keyboard based
on keypresses
* A load of new Ubuntu-specific documentation, thanks to the
hard work of our community documentation team
* Instant messaging, desktop publishing, office productivity,
with vorbis playback and Python 2.4 ready out of the box
* Enhancements to the hardware abstraction layer to provide you with
BIOS, CPU, memory and LSB data (infrastructure for the upcoming
hardware database)
* Enhanced proactive security due to privilege minimization of many
processes which previously ran as root. This work reduces the impact
of many potential security vulnerabilities.
* The very best of the 100% FREE / LIBRE application software world.
* Much, much more!


Como siempre se puede bajar tanto LiveCD como InstallCD para x86, amd64 y ppc.
