“Formal Candidate Images”

“The images that are the trial run for the official images were posted up on the iso tester last night/today.” Stewart writes in a post to the Ubuntu Development Mailing List (among others). “The most recent language pack updates should now be included on those images rebuilt today as well.”

“They are now very close to what we’ll be building as the formal candidate images on sunday/monday.

“Any help you can give in testing the images available on the iso tester out over the next couple of days would be much appreciated. The latest images can be found [at]“.

As soon as the ‘formal candidate images’ are ready for download we’ll be sure to let you know.
