I had a chance to sit down with Ubuntu's new Desktop Manager, Jason Warner. I met Jason at Linux.conf.au in Brisbane earlier this year and had a good chat about Unity, and the future of Ubuntu over a beer, but only just now got around to formally interviewing him for OMG! Ubuntu! As Desktop Manager, Jason oversees every release of Ubuntu, and the buck stops at him for quality control. We quizz him about his thoughts on Unity, Ubuntu's mass market appeal, and targeting Apple. Read on for the full interview.
Next week Alpha 3 of Ubuntu 11.10 will be released, so everybody is currently trying to get their latest updates in and everything tidied up for a release.
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.

We are one week away from Alpha 2, so right now you can see lots of developers trying to get as many things into Ubuntu Oneiric as possible: AirPrint, theme changes and loads of other stuff. After this milestone we will have only 4 weeks left until Feature Freeze at which stage most of the features should have have landed.
This week has been busy. Lots of bits and pieces are coming together in Oneiric and the status overview might give you an idea how each feature is progressing. If you look at the release schedule for Ubuntu 11.10 you can see that Oneiric is still in the development phase, where most of the heavy lifting is being done and where things are still broken. Still it's a great time to get involved and fix a few issues early on. Check out the last section of this post to find out how to get started.
Development of Oneiric (Ubuntu 11.10) is in full swing, we just got Alpha 1 out last week and here's the list of dates that are coming up in the next few weeks...
The Ubuntu Developers YouTube channel has uploaded a new video interview with Mark Shuttleworth, recorded earlier this week at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, currently taking place in Hungary. In the twenty-minute long interview he talks about his strategy on reaching 200 million Ubuntu users by 2015 and what users can expect in Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04, as well as touching upon the job of managing a project home to so many differing views and preferences. Video after the break.
Earlier this week Akshat took some time out to chat with open-source fan and graphic designer talented Ian 'Izo' Cylkowski about his work, his tools and his thoughts on designing in open-source.
