Ubuntu 11.10 to be an "Oneiric Ocelot"

Filed under
Ubuntu

Mark Shuttleworth has announced that the next release of Ubunutu, after April's Natty Narwhal (11.04), version 11.10, will be named "Oneiric Ocelot". The name refers to the leopard-like cat whilst "Oneiric" is defined as "Of or relating to dreams or dreaming", though Shuttleworth says it means "dreamy" and suggests that 11.10 is both daydreaming and disciplined.

At the inception of 11.10, Shuttleworth also outlined the plans for 11.10's October release. He noted that the version after 11.10 will be 12.04 which will be a LTS (Long Term Support) version.

I was really tense, waiting on the naming of 'buntu 11.10. Had a few alternatives ready, just in case.

obnoxious ox
obtuse ostrich
ostentatious osprey
overbearing orangutan
obstructive octopus
oafish otter
obfuscated owl
obscene oyster

  • AMDGPU DC Code Lands For Linux 4.15 Kernel
    Linus Torvalds has accepted the AMDGPU DC display code pull request for the Linux 4.15 kernel. AMD Linux users can now rejoice! Overnight David Airlie sent in the AMDGPU DC pull request for Linux 4.15 and since then Linus Torvalds was active on the kernel mailing list ranting about AMD header files and other unrelated to DC code. He was also pulling in other PRs... It was getting a bit worrisome, given the DC code not being in pristine shape, but it was exciting as heck to see this evening that he did go ahead and pull in the 132 thousand lines of new kernel code to land this AMDGPU DC. Linus hasn't provided any commentary about DC on the kernel mailing list as of writing.
  • Radeon VCN Encode Support Lands In Mesa 17.4 Git
    It's an exciting day for open-source Radeon Linux users today as besides the AMDGPU DC pull request (albeit still unmerged as of writing), Radeon VCN encoding support has landed in Mesa Git.
