This is the list of new features in ubuntu 11.10:
Improved handling of 32-bit compatibility on amd64 systems
Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 1 enables “multiarch” support for installing 32-bit library and application packages on 64-bit systems. For all amd64 installs and upgrades, select 32-bit software, including skype and flash, will be installable directly using the same 32-bit packages that are used on i386 installations, without the need to install the ia32-libs compatibility package.
