    Release Schedule, Partial Upgrades and Common Questions

    The combined partial upgrade and frequently asked questions sticky:

    Every development cycle stickies seem to grow on their own, in the previous cycle we had seven stickied threads, I would like to keep that number down, to make things a bit more managable. So to start with, here is a link to the Raring Ringtail release schedule:

    QA Cadence Schedule

    If you are asked to do a partial upgrade, please read this first:

    There always are many questions about what to do and how to do thngs during a release cycle:

    Common problems

    If you are looking for the Ubuntu Daily iso, have a look here:

    As many of you may know we have created a U+1 testing team to do a better job of reporting bugs, and generally to make things better for all during the testing cycle. To that end, we have created a wiki where a lot of information regarding testing is available. You don't have to be a team member to be able to test RR, testing is open to everyone regardless of your experience level. That being said, to get the most possible feedback from your bug reports, check this out, before creating a bug report:

    @Cariboo907
    I need confirmation of the 'Release Schedule' changes so I can edit the testers wiki accordingly.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RaringRingtail/ReleaseSchedule.

    It's hard to read because of the colours used, so hopefully it'll be redone in the next couple of days.

    In the link I posted Guitara (Nick Skaggs) has noted that there will be no alpha releases and only 1 beta release - so I am assuming that the 'Release Schedule' is not up to date ??

    -<>-
    Release
    The Release schedule has dropped all alphas, and the first beta, resulting in a beta and then final release milestone only. In addition, the freezes have been moved back a few weeks. The end result is the archive will not be frozen till late in the cycle, allowing development and testing to continue unencumbered. This of course is for ubuntu only. Which brings us to flavors! -<>-

    Beside the Alpha 1 entry it says tentative, flavours only. I assume that flavours only means the derivatives only, and not Ubuntu.

    Re: Release Schedule, Partial Upgrades and Common Questions

    I tried yesterday's daily build and it would not get past the screen that said I have enough disk space and I am connected to the internet.
    It just froze at that point. I waited about 20 minutes and seen no disk activity.
    I downloaded raring-desktop-amd64.iso

    Although the md5sum checked OK, I thought maybe it was just a bad ISO.

    So, this morning I downloaded today's ISO and got the same results.

    I am not able to find the normal Ubuntu alpha release.
    Am I just trying to jump in too early? I would like to participate in testing but, so far am at a dead end.
    Thanks for any help.

    There isn't an Ubuntu alpha or beta release this time around, the daily live iso, are supposed to be tested and usable, but for several of us, the latest kernel won't even boot.
