    "The beaver told the rabbit as they stared at the Hoover Dam: No, I didn't
    build it myself, but it's based on an idea of mine".
    -- Charles Hard Townes

    The first beta of the Bionic Beaver (to become 18.04) has now been
    released, and is available for download!

    This milestone features images for Kubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Kylin,
    Ubuntu MATE, and Xubuntu.

    Pre-releases of the Bionic Beaver are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a
    stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional,
    even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu flavour
    developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing
    bugs as we work towards getting this release ready.
