A new beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 was released yesterday with a host of nifty new features, bug fixes and general improvements. 

Whilst you might not be able to burn it to a blank CD anymore it can still be quickly installed to and booted from a USB or DVD.

So will you be installing, playing or taking a cynical gander at it over the weekend?
