After months of alpha and beta testing Ubuntu, and Kubuntu, 5.10 (Breezy Badger) has been released!!
Ubuntu 5.10 contains the very latest GNOME 2.12, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2, a very very simple “Add/Remove programs” system, and also an improved version of Xorg 6.8.2 with wider hardware support.
Kubuntu 5.10 contains the latest KDE 3.4.3, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2 with KDE intergration, and a brand new KDE apt package manager called Adept. This new one replaces Kynaptic, which kind of sucked big time. I’ve been playing a little bit with the RC1 LiveCD and I’m really pleased with this new KDE package manager.
If you are looking for a nice easy to use Debian-based Linux distribution, I highly recommend you taking a look at Ubuntu (GNOME) or Kubuntu (KDE).
OSdir has made quite a few screenshots of Ubuntu 5.10 available right here: http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/slideshow.php?release=469&slide=4
The Ubuntu Team are not quite done yet, they’ll be releasing Edubuntu very very soon, it might even show up later today, which is a version of Ubuntu optimized for use in a school or for other educational purposes.
