Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) Preview

| Comments

¡Ya ha salido la preview de la nueva versión de Ubuntu!

Recordemos que muchos de nosotros la primera vez que instalamos Ubuntu fué con una preview… y no estuvo nada mal. Incluyo muchísimas mejoras, entre ellas os pego las más importantes (en inglés), aunque el plato fuerte es sin duda el ayer salido escritorio Gnome 2.10:

* GNOME 2.10 – Very fresh… Released yesterday!
* 6.8.2
* Kickstart compatibility for automatic installations
* Several new desktop package-management tools to make it even
easier to stay up to date
* An ultra-fast boot process, with optimized init process and
special optimizations for the hotplug system
* Improved hardware support on a range of platforms – laptops in
particular gain improved suspend/hibernation support and processor
frequency scaling
* Unified and improved hardware detection between the install and
live CDs, which gives us live CDs on powerpc and amd64 too
* A range of improvements related to internationalization,
translations, and different keyboard layouts, including a
new smart keyboard selector that guesses your keyboard based
on keypresses
* A load of new Ubuntu-specific documentation, thanks to the
hard work of our community documentation team
* Instant messaging, desktop publishing, office productivity,
with vorbis playback and Python 2.4 ready out of the box
* Enhancements to the hardware abstraction layer to provide you with
BIOS, CPU, memory and LSB data (infrastructure for the upcoming
hardware database)
* Enhanced proactive security due to privilege minimization of many
processes which previously ran as root. This work reduces the impact
of many potential security vulnerabilities.
* The very best of the 100% FREE / LIBRE application software world.
* Much, much more!

Como siempre se puede bajar tanto LiveCD como InstallCD para x86, amd64 y ppc.
