Ubuntu 11.10 Development update

Loads of good stuff is happening in Ubuntu these days. You can get a good idea of it when you check out the oneiric-changes mailing list. Lots of these changes have been in the making for a bit longer, so expect the ground-breaking changes to happen in the next few weeks. If you're after the big picture overview: the status overview should give you a very detailed look on how each feature is progressing. It's two weeks until Alpha 3 is going to be released and 3 weeks until Feature Freeze, when the majority of the feature work should have landed. If you have updates you want to get into Ubuntu which shake things up, you better get a move on and do it now. Read on for the weekly rundown by Daniel Holbach.

Summary: Ubuntu Developer Week

Last week was Ubuntu Developer Week, one week full of tutorials, workshops and presentations with the intention of explaining better what's going on in the world of Ubuntu development, to ask, learn, get to know and enjoy. These weeks are always over much too quickly, but the good news is, 1) we have logs of all the sessions, their questions and answers (links below) and 2) there's going to be another one next cycle! This post got a bit longer, so grab a coffee, sit back and check out what happened last week. (Links go to the logs of the session in question.)
