Shuttleworth confirms 1 June for Dapper

Filed under
Ubuntu

In an e-mail to the Ubuntu community last night, Mark Shuttleworth confirmed the release date for Ubuntu Dapper Drake desktop and server editions as 1 June.

According to Shuttleworth, the extra time will be devoted to quality assurance, Asian language support, and "polish" for the user interface. The XFCE desktop will also be integrated into the main repository for users wanting a fast and light desktop.

During the delay period, Shuttleworth also hopes to get Dapper certified for the Linux Standards Base (LSB) certification.

With the beta release expected on the original release date - 20 April - there will also be more time for testing both the server and the new live CD installer.
