The Porting Team is proud to announce to the Ubuntu world the Beta release of
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS codename "Dapper Drake" and Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS for
UltraSparc, IA64 and HPPA (1.1 and later) CPUs.

What's hot and new
- ------------------

For the second time the Porting Team is releasing together with Ubuntu
mainstream
(https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2005-October/000040.html).
This is the proof that our ports are getting better and more stable in time
specially thanks to our amazing growing community,

On top of what Ubuntu mainstream already has, a number of architecture specific
improvements have been done from the previous release:

* new amazingly fast build machines have been donated by Canonical and hosted
at the official data center.

* HPPA did overrule all the other 5 architectures for being the most
up-to-date in the archive.

* a lot of work has been done on the sparc kernel that now has preliminary
support for SUN Niagara T1 CPU (as previously announced).

* mono has been ported to sparc, bringing the sparc desktop experience almost
at the same level as other architectures.

* a lot of sparc installer bug fixes made their way to the archive. Including
also installation on RAID and LVM.

* and much more under the hood.
