    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 , 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:

    So no Alpha's for plain old vanilla Ubuntu again right? Only 1 Beta and 1 Release Canditate? Just hope that the Nightly Builds work ok eventually, as we're off to a Rocky Start with today's Releases.

    The schedule I looked at showed an Alpha late in June.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Yes, but that's the ubuntu variants (kubuntu/xubuntu/lubuntu) not the main version...notice it says "opt in flavors"...that is what it means

    Re: Saucy Release Schedule, Partial Upgrades and Common Questions

    Well, I dove in and installed the Ubuntu 5/21/13 daily build. I've applied updates yesterday and today. Everything smooth as silk so far. The only problem I've run into is that many of the apps I used in 13.04 (Mediterranean Theme, my-weather-indicator, indicator-sensors, etc.) I had to download the .deb files from the PPA's as they weren't set up for Saucy yet. Now I've got my fingers crossed for a reasonably smooth ride.

    I guess these +1 threads must not get moving good until it gets closer to Alpaha build, maybe around July/August?

    Hmmm, I wonder if something is not borked with the Cadence schedule? There are places where we jump three weeks rather than two:

    cadence_1.pngcadence_2.png

    Sorry I couldn't get that all in one screen grab but I'm on a small screen ATM.

    Weeks 1 thru 3 are each two weeks apart but then week 4 jumps ahead 3 weeks, then week 5 is again two weeks away.

    Then week 6 comes again two weeks later, but week 7 comes 3 weeks later!!!!!!!

    That is NOT Cadence!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's random! It's like how I pay my bills when I'm short on money!

    Even the "opt-in" Release Schedule is a bit off because Alpha2 and Alpha3 are only two weeks apart wheras the rest of the schedule runs on four week intervals!

    Sheesh, we're a mess and we haven't even really begun yet

    Interesting. And the last "daily" build is 5/21 and it's now 5/23.

    Re: Saucy Release Schedule, Partial Upgrades and Common Questions

    My view, schedule should be influenced by what is available when, then every 6 months sweep up whatever is on the floor and put a ribbon around it....

    Been kind of quiet lately on ubuntu saucy 32 & 64 so I'm trying out restricted extra's, lubuntu saucy 64, mint, peppermint, google-chrome, chromebook (relatively cheap, relatively fast (!) for what it can do), 7" and 9" tablets, ...

    From what I remember in one of the vUDS sessions (memory has been verified by someone else now ) - the saucy schedule was 'built' a long time ago, it 'should' have been changed about to be like the raring one - but hasn't been yet from what I can see. I subscribed to the wiki as I'm waiting for the changes to appear myself.
