New features in ubuntu 11.10

Filed under
Ubuntu

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.

Ubuntu 11.10

Somehow I doubt it's fixing ANY of the 84,421 bugs in 11.04

That would be oh so boring compared to new shiny wallpaper and lots of upgraded packages.

  • GNOME Builder - 3.16.2
    I released 3.16.0 a couple weeks ago without much fanfare. Despite many months of 16-hour days and weekends, it lacked some of the features I wanted to get into the "initial" release. So I didn't stop. I kept pushing through to make 3.16.2 the best that I could.
  • PacketFence v5.0 released
    The Inverse team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of PacketFence 5.0.0. This is a major release with new features, enhancements and important bug fixes. This release is considered ready for production use and upgrading from previous versions is strongly advised.
  • What are good open-source log monitoring tools on Linux
    In an operating system, logs are all about keeping track of events, be it critical system errors, resource usage warnings, transaction history, application status, or user activities. These logs, which are stored as (text or binary) files in the system, are useful for system auditing, debugging and maintenance. However, with so many different system entities generating log files, and even at growing rate, the challenge as a system admin is to how to "consume" these log files effectively.
  • Apache Fortress Core 1.0-RC40 released !
