What's ahead for Ubuntu's Gutsy Gibbon

By
A planned feature list has been revealed for Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon", along with the scheduled release date of October 18.

Three editions are planned: desktop, server, and the new mobile and embedded release for handhelds and other devices.

Key changes include the inclusion of Linux kernel 2.6.22, GNOME 2.20, Compiz Fusion (the reunification of Compiz and Beryl) for compositing window management, support for some Winmodems, and X.org 7.3 (featuring support for hot-plugging monitors and input devices such as tablets) - assuming work on those projects is completed in time to fit Ubuntu's release schedule.

Stability and performance improvements are planned (notably in the area of better handling situations where the filesystem is full, and in bug and crash reporting), along with changes to the server edition to suit the needs of wider audiences.

See Ubuntu's announcement for more details.
