Ubuntu has today announced that their new open source operating system in the form of Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn alpha 1 has now been released and is available to download for Ubuntu developers and interested parties
However Ubuntu explains that pre-releases of the Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn are not advised to be installed by anyone needing a stable system and is more for those users that doen’t mind running into the occasional or even frequent bugs or runtime issue.
The new Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn Alpha 1 operating system includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing but are still under development and require tweaking, Ubuntu explains :
“While these Alpha 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the Utopic Unicorn. In particular, once newer daily images are available, system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 1 installer should be verified against the current daily image before being reported in Launchpad.
Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy trying to make 14.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your system is up to date before reporting bugs.”
