Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) Final Beta released
Codenamed “Wily Werewolf”, 15.10 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
This beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavours.
The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 15.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on October 22nd, 2015.
There is, however, one bug in this beta serious enough that it’s worth calling it out in the release announcement. This bug affects all flavours, and will be fixed before release:
1) Depending on your location, Ubiquity may trigger a ubi-timezone error during install. If you encounter this, the recommended work-around is to install without an active network connection.
Ubuntu, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Core, Cloud Images: Utopic Final Beta includes updated versions of most of our core set of packages, including a current 4.2.1 kernel, and much more.
