Ubuntu: A new "Unity 8" flavour

Filed under
Ubuntu

The desktop team would like to add a new flavour (ish, we don't plan to
have any formal releases at this point) of Ubuntu which contains the
Unity 8 desktop and the new applications which have been developed for
the touch project.

The initial intention is to provide a product which developers can use
to figure out the work that's required to make a desktop product based
on this software usable, and to create a space for experimentation to
figure out the best ways of carrying out the required integration. We
still plan to migrate pieces of the current desktop over, but we are
very mindful of the need to not destabilise the desktop and upset its
users, and are hopeful that developing this flavour in parallel will
mean that migrations will truly happen when software is ready instead of
as a result of pressure to get work into the hands of users early.
