Ubuntu 12.04 Alpha 1 has been released. There are not many visible changes in this release. However, lots of packages have been updated to their latest versions.
A look at changes and new features in Alpha 1:
- Firefox 9 Beta and Thunderbird 9 Beta
- Linux Kernel 3.2
- Multiple Screenshots and Embedded video support for detailed apps view in Ubuntu Software Center. Support for viewing prices and purchasing an application from list itself has also been added.
- Banshee, Gbrainy and Tomboy have been removed. Rhythmbox is now default music player.
Please note that this is development build far from being stable. The best way would be try it in Virtualbox, in Live mode or you can install it on spare machine.
