The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop and Server,
continuing Ubuntu's tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open
source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.

Read more about the features of Ubuntu 8.10 in the following press releases:

  Desktop edition    http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-8.10-desktop
  Server edition     http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-8.10-server

Ubuntu 8.10 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and servers.
Users requiring a longer support lifetime may choose to continue using
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS rather than upgrading to or installing 8.10.

Ubuntu 8.10 is also the basis for new 8.10 releases of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and
UbuntuStudio:

To Get Ubuntu 8.10
------------------

To download Ubuntu 8.10, or obtain CDs, visit:

  http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu

Because Ubuntu 8.04 LTS is a long-term support release, users of that
release will not be offered an automatic upgrade to 8.10 via Update Manager.
For instructions on upgrading to Ubuntu 8.10, see:

  http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading

As always, upgrades to the latest version of Ubuntu are entirely free of
charge.

We recommend that all users read the release notes, which document
caveats and workarounds for known issues.  They are available at:
