As of just a few hours ago, Edgy Eft Knot-2 has been released for testers. Knot 2 is the second in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Edgy development cycle, ultimately becoming Ubuntu 6.10.
While this development version (codenamed Edgy Eft) is highly recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to participate in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs; anyone not comfortable with helping to debug such issues is advised to wait until later in the release cycle to assist.
Knot 2 is not meant for those people who need, or require, a stable system. Testers may experience occasional, or even frequent breakage.
As well as the feature highlights on our main site, the post to the ubuntu-devel-announce list has all the technical details. There are instructions for downloading images for Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu from the online mirror network.
