    Ubuntu Server 13.04 - What's actually new?

    On the overview page of Server 13.04 on the homepage, it's a lot of blabla about clouds and this and that. But is there anything actually NEW in this release when not using the cloud? Many people I imagine use a server like a plain vanilla server. No cloud shizzle. It appears absolutely nothing has been changed or added since 12.10, outside of cloudy features. Am I wrong?

    Also it's seems extremely hard to figure what this new Juju thing actually does. Again a lot of blabla about the cloud and cloud orchestration (whatever the hell that is) but no real down-to-earth information. Is it a server administration tool or something? And show screenshots!

    Just a headsup for the homepage editors I guess. Don't be in the "clouds" too much, also give real information.

    I'm completely out of the development loop so I wouldn't know too many details, but I can confirm there are lots of updated packages and a new kernel (3.8) - that's enough for me to migrate. Unfortuantely I have a reboot issue now though, so at the same time I'm regretting upgrading so early

    I wonder why such important things are not listed. A new kernel is something that is absolutely the singlemost important thing to many (hardcore? may I say that?) sysadmins. And all that it appears to be about is cloud this and cloud that.

    Good to know there are some actual upgrades to expect. I guess I'll wait with to upgrade to my 12.04 production server (altough I do want PHP 5.4 - incredible that it doesn't come with regular upgrades)
    I'll see if I can at least make a snapshot (it's a VPS after all) before anything
