Hi Folks,

Just a very quick question. 9.04 will is scheduled to be released tomorrow (April 23, 2009) I was wondering when I go to do the update, will it show up at midnight of the 23rd, or later that day? I am leaving for a trip tomorrow night with very very very limited internet access for the next 2 weeks.

Just curious.

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi Anthony, you can upgrade to 9.04 right now if you like. Simply open a terminal and enter the following command:


gksu update-manager -d

Obviously there may be some minor changes between now and the final release sometime tomorrow.

However, if you will be without internet access for 2 weeks, and you need this computer for work or other important tasks, I highly recommend NOT upgrading to a brand new release. There are always bugs in any new release, and with no internet access, you will not be able to download any fixes.
