Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha 3 Has Been Released

A few minutes ago, the Ubuntu development team unleashed the third and last Alpha release of the upcoming Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) operating system, due for release in October 10th, 2010. As usual, we’ve downloaded a copy of it in order to keep you up-to-date with the latest changes in the Ubuntu 10.10 development.

There aren’t too many changes since alpha 2 – at least visually. Most of the development – just like it was with alpha 2 – focused on Ubuntu Netbook Edition. Ubuntu Desktop got some improvements to the Sound Indicator, Ubuntu Software Center and that’s about it while Unity in Ubuntu Netbook Edition got some major changes, there’s a new Indicator DateTime and so on.

What’s new in Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha 3? Well, you should know that the first version of long-awaited OneConf has been released and it is available in the default software repositories. OneConf can be easily installed via the Synaptic Package Manager and it will allow users to synchronize the applications installed on all of their Ubuntu desktop or laptop/netbook machines, via the Ubuntu One service. After the installation, OneConf can be found in the File menu of the Ubuntu Software Center application and it is entitled “Inventory on Ubuntu One.” Below you can see some screenshots of OneConf in action …

Moreover, the “What’s New” and “Featured” sections of the Ubuntu Software Center, introduced in the Alpha 2 release, were improved. Also introduced in the second Alpha version, there’s a History plugin that will keep an evidence of what packages you have installed, removed or updated…

Ubuntu Software Center 2.1.7 in Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha 3

GNOME 2.31.6 is now the default desktop environment, and most of its components were updated to the latest development version. Mozilla Firefox was updated to version 3.6.8 and the Transmission BitTorrent client to version 2.03.

The kernel packages were updated to version 2.6.35-14.19, based on the final release of Linux kernel 2.6.35.

Last but not least, the highly anticipated Btrfs filesystem can now be safely used on new installations, via manual partitioning. Remember that you MUST create an EXT3 or EXT4 /boot partition first.

Shotwell is now the default photo management application in Ubuntu Netbook Edition.
On October 10th, 2010, Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) will become the thirteenth release of the Ubuntu operating system. See you again in exactly one month (September 2nd), for the first Beta version of the upcoming Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) operating system.
