Zipping to life, live daily images of Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus are now available to download.

The images arrive almost two weeks after the Ubuntu 16.10 release, more than enough time for you to get bored with stability, and yearn for package churn!

During the course of Zesty’s development new images will be spun up and published daily (assuming no major issues emerge). These iso images are not recommended for use in production or essay-critical situations but thanks to tough automated testing give the curious a way to glimpse the 17.04 development cycle as it happens.

ISO images for both regular Ubuntu (the one that uses Unity) and community flavors like Ubuntu MATE and Xubuntu are available.

The Ubuntu ISO testing tracker is also live, though Zesty (and related) packages aren’t yet listed on the Ubuntu packages server.

Download Ubuntu 17.04 Daily Build


Those of you like to live on the bleeding edge and/or want to get involved in helping to test Ubuntu 17.04 can do so by downloading a daily image for use in a virtual machine or to install on a separate partition/device.

Don’t expect much in the way of major changes this early on. It’ll be a good couple of months before big user-facing changes are made.

Toolchains have been updated though, which is important if you’re a developer, and an influx of updated packages, libraries and toolkits will shortly spill in.

Hit the button below to navigate over to the Ubuntu image server. Here you’ll find daily builds of Ubuntu 17.04 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
