Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal Release Date
Ubuntu 12.10 has announced by Mark Shuttleworth founder of Ubuntu with the codename “Quantal Quetzal” in a blog post this week that also shed some light on the feature roadmap for the next major version of the popular Linux distribution. The final version of Ubuntu 12.10 to be released soon to incorporate a new look and feel in the Ubuntu Line-Up.
Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal New Rumors
Style on the Client
The quintessential stories of Q will be all about style on the client, with a refresh of our theme and typography, a start on new iconography, and perhaps even a new form factor taking flight,” wrote Shuttleworth in a blog post on Monday. “So brown is out and something colorful and light is called for.”
In the cloud, meanwhile, a new virtualized network called Quantum will make its debut with this upcoming release, Shuttleworth added.
“The name is reminiscent of our package-oriented practices, where goodness is delivered one piece at a time,” he wrote. “I give you the Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, soon to be dressed in tessellated technicolor, now open for toolchains, kernels, and other pressing preparatory packages.”
In creating Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal–named after the brightly colored bird in the trogon family–the Ubuntu team will keep many of the “quality-oriented practices” it used in the creation of the soon-to-launch Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Shuttleworth said.
“We’ll keep the platform usable throughout the cycle, because that helped hugely to encourage daily use of the release, which in turn gives us much better feedback on questions of quality,” he explained.
At the same time, though, there will be a heightened focus on continuous integration, smoke testing, and automated benchmarking of the release, he explained.
As for rumors that Ubuntu might switch from Upstart to SystemD, they’re unfounded, Shuttleworth wrote.
“After a review by the Ubuntu Foundations team, our course is clear: we’re committed to Upstart,” he said.
Among the style changes to come, meanwhile, will be tweaks to typography and iconography, including a newly refined look for apps and interfaces throughout the platform.

“It’s amazing how quaint the early releases of Ubuntu look compared to the current style,” Shuttleworth explained. “In our artistic explorations we want to embrace tessellation as an expression of the part-digital, part-organic nature of Ubuntu.”
