Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha 2 is available.

I don't know which are your feelings about Ubuntu 10.04, but I have the impression that it was just released. And I have to tell you, that on the 3rd of June, the development for the following version of Ubuntu was officially starting, with the launch of Alpha 1. Today, we already have the Alpha 2, which has been released on the 1st of July. 

You're probably curious to know the changes now. So, they aren't really important....interface was a little redesigned, a change that is even hard to see at a first look, boot time seems to be improved a little...and some bugs related to the sound and booting procedure. The rest is the same.

The schedule has been changed this time. We have 3 Alphas, a Beta, the Release Candidate and the Final Release. So here's the schedule:
  • 3rd of June - Alpha 1
  • 1st of July- Alpha 2
  • 5th of August - Alpha 3
  • 2nd of September - Beta
  • 30th of September - Release Candidate
  • 10th of October - Final release
You can download the current build (Alpha 2) from here.
