Announcing Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu 5.10

After a long six months of development, the Ubuntu team has announced the release of Ubuntu 5.10, also known as “Breezy Badger”. Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for your desktop or server, with a fast and easy install, regular releases, a tight selection of excellent packages installed by default, every other package you can imagine available from the network, a commitment to security updates for 18 months after each release and professional technical support from many companies around the world.

Coinciding with this release, Jonathan Riddell also announced Kubuntu 5.10:

The second release of Kubuntu, codenamed Breezy Badger, is now available for download. This release comes with the very latest KDE 3.4.3 and includes the new Guidance configuration tools. If you missed our testing releases for Breezy you will be pleased to see the other new additions in Kubuntu Breezy including Adept package manager, System Settings and KDE Bluetooth.

And last, but certainly not least, the Edubuntu team’s first release is also available. Developed in partnership with the K12-LTSP community, this is a great base distro for people working with FLOSS in schools:

Features include a built-in Linux Terminal Server, educational applications such as GCompris and the KDE Edutainment Suite, Tux4kids, and other quality software that you will also find in Ubuntu.

All three are available for the i386, PowerPC, and x86_64 hardware architectures. As always, ordering a complimentary copy of the official Ubuntu 5.10 CD — or a handful to give to friends, your school or LUG — is a snack with shipit! The Documentation team has whipped up a quick tour that you can peruse while waiting for your download. Also, don’t forget to read the release notes. Enjoy!
