Ubuntu 11.10 – code named as Oneiric Ocelot, beta vs 1 has released today!, the second beta will be available in the end of sep 2011, while OCT 13 has been set for final/stable release. This version has arrived with a lot of new and exciting features – such as Gnome 3.2 desktop (although you could try to install Gnome 3 on Ubuntu 11.04 but it was not stable/usable), some nice improvements in Unity, GTK3 etc. Due to the improvements in User Interface / ease of use – The Linux distributions are now becoming very popular among common desktop users, and Ubuntu has played an important role in that. Anyway, if you are using Ubuntu on production machines then you are not recommended to try Beta versions (wait until the final version is out!) but experimental users, whose who can’t wait wait to try exciting features – may like to try this beta version (But Remember, always create a backup before such experiments).
