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.

skippy

hehe - nothing quite so sad as a windoze guy who spends his time hanging out on linux news sites and making snarky comments...

Oh boy...

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
