    Announcing the Release Candidate for Ubuntu 9.04

    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...il/000121.html

    The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the Release Candidate for Ubuntu
    9.04 Desktop and Server editions and Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Codenamed
    "Jaunty Jackalope", 9.04 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating
    the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality,
    easy-to-use Linux distribution.

    We consider this release candidate to be complete, stable, and suitable for
    testing by any user.

    Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop Edition brings faster boot speeds and a new
    notification system to your everyday computing experience.

    Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition makes it easy to experiment with cloud computing
    using Eucalyptus on your own servers, and sports an improved mail server
    integration stack based on postfix and dovecot.

    Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix brings a new, easy-to-use interface
    that is designed to be used on the smaller screens of netbook devices.

    The Ubuntu 9.04 family of variants, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu Studio, and
    Mythbuntu, also reach RC status today.

    The final release of Ubuntu 9.04 is scheduled for 23 April 2009 and 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, with
    security support until 2011 on the desktop and 2013 on the server, rather
    than upgrade to 9.04.

    Before installing or upgrading to Ubuntu 9.04 please review the
    instructions and caveats in the release notes:

    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904

    In addition, there are a small number of known bugs in the release
    candidate that will be fixed before the Ubuntu 9.04 release, but warrant
    highlighting for your attention:

    About The Release Candidate
    ---------------------------

    The purpose of the Release Candidate is to solicit one last round of
    testing before the final release. Here are ways that you can help:

    * Upgrade from Ubuntu or Kubuntu 8.10 to the Release Candidate by
    following the instructions in the release notes referenced above.

    * Participate in installation testing using the Release Candidate CD
    images, by following the testing and reporting instructions at
    http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/ISO


    Desktop features
    ----------------

    Faster boot times: improvements to Ubuntu's start-up process mean you can
    spend less time waiting and more time being productive with your Ubuntu
    desktop.

    Notification system: notifications, those alerts that signify a change of
    status on your system or whether someone is contacting you, have been made
    consistent across applications to provide a pleasing, intuitive experience
    for users.

    Server features
    ---------------

    Cloud computing: Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (powered by Eucalyptus) puts you
    in control of your own cloud computing infrastructure, compatible with
    Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) but running on your own servers behind
    your firewall. Ubuntu Server Edition 9.04 will also see Ubuntu available
    on Amazon EC2 -- making it the most complete cloud environment available
    today.

    Turn-key mail servers: the dovecot-postfix package in Ubuntu 9.04 provides
    an all-in-one solution for deploying SMTP, POP3, and IMAP services with
    integrated server-side filtering support.

    Netbook Remix features
    ----------------------

    Built-for-purpose interface: favourite applications and websites are just a
    click away, making Ubuntu Netbook Remix a great choice for netbook users.

    Faster boot times: improvements to Ubuntu's start-up process mean you can
    spend less time waiting and more time being productive with your Ubuntu
    Netbook desktop.

    Ubuntu Netbook Remix is known to work on these netbook models:
    Asus Eee PC 900
    Acer Aspire One
    Dell Mini 9

    Kubuntu features
    ----------------

    Kubuntu, built on the amazing KDE 4.2, brings users a complete,
    full-featured KDE4 desktop with many new applications and innovations.

    Please see https://wiki.kubuntu.org/JauntyJackalope/RC/Kubuntu for details.

    Xubuntu features
    ----------------

    Xubuntu comes with the light-weight Xfce 4.6 desktop environment for those
    who want a desktop that is easy to use, but places particular emphasis on
    conserving system resources.

    Please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/JauntyJackalope/RC for further
    details.

    Ubuntu Studio features
    ----------------------

    Ubuntu Studio includes updates to input hardware and sound device
    management from Ubuntu Desktop and a complete suite of tools for generation
    of audio, video, and graphic content.

    Ubuntu Studio 9.04 also features a streamlined installation process, giving
    you a familiar Ubuntu desktop and all of your studio applications in a
    single step.

    The realtime kernel flavor (linux-rt) has returned and is again used by
    default in Ubuntu Studio. The rtirq script (http://alsa.opensrc.org/Rtirq)
    is also now included in the ubuntustudio-audio package. It is recommended
    that users not use the new EXT4 filesystem with the linux-rt kernel on
    production systems due to some reports of instability.

    Jack-audio-connection-kit now includes support for the Free Firewire Audio
    Drivers (FFADO, www.ffado.org).

    Mythbuntu features
    ------------------

    As of 9.04, Mythbuntu fits better into the Ubuntu ecosystem by using the
    same build methods as all other remixes and derivatives. Because of this,
    9.04 has been a focus around stability and preparing for an easy transition
    to the next version of MythTV (0.22) later this year.

    Unfortunately, the main Mythbuntu website, http://mythbuntu.org is
    temporarily down due to a problem with the hosting provider. RC images
    will still be available at
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/mythbuntu/releases/jaunty . We'll restore the
    other mirrors as soon as the main site returns.

    A more complete tour of the features new in 9.04 can be found at
    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/rele...es/904overview

    If you are already running Jaunty beta, the upgrade instructions in the release announcement do not apply to you. You simply need to do

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Be sure to check out the Community Ubuntu Documentation and the Ubuntu Team Wiki.

    The fastest and most stable Ubuntu release I've used so far (I started using Ubuntu as my main and only OS on all my machines since 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)).

    What is your hardware?
    Do you get the boot screen? Once boot screen is done you get the black screen with cursor? Can you move cursor? Is the cursor the circle animation one (thinking)?

    My old computer once boot screen is done, goes to a black screen with only cursor, and stays there for about 10 seconds, then finishes loading rest of desktop.

    See
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/JauntyJackal...otes#Upgrading

    For possible errors.
