The next release of Ubuntu, 9.10, codenamed "Karmic Koala", is due out later this month!
The Release Candidate was released yesterday, if you're willing to test not-yet-finalised software, go get a copy and play with it! The final version will be out in about a week for those of you who'd prefer to wait for the real thing!
There's a strong tradition of Release Parties with each new version of Ubuntu, and we'll try and get as many Canadian parties some publicity here!
So far just one announced to the mailing list:
Quebec City, QC
Where : MO tavern 810 Boul Charest E, Quebec, QC G1K 8H8
When: October 29th 2009 starting at 18h00pm
What : Free CDs, demos, presentations, experts on the spot if you need
to ask questions
(thanks to David Tremblay for that info)
If you're doing something in your area to mark Karmic's release, let the Ubuntu Canada Mailing List know, and we'll try and get it up here on the website in time too!
