Not released yet, but google will find you plenty of information on the betas.

EDIT: Oh and early adopters usually regret their haste!

I searched the internet but mythbuntu details ie which version of mythtv will be used, was not available.

I don't know if that will change before release, but mythbuntu-repos will keep you up to date no matter which ubuntu release you use (within reason).

You can see the versions of mythtv used at

http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mythtv

More or less, a newer snapshot of 0.24. You'll still be able to enable autobuilds to get newer snapshots of 0.24 or 0.25 though too.

Still .24 of Mythtv. The only real changes to Mythbuntu is that Mythbuntu will now use LightDM, Chromium will be the default web browser instead of Firefox, and Mythbuntu users will now have access to the Ubuntu Software Center, rather than Synaptic.

The options that caught my eye were:
- Mythbuntu-bare scheduling now available for backups
- Android and iOS devices can now be used as remote controls

What's meant by those? I've been trying to find out, but can't find more about it. Is the second one referring to already existings apps?

There is a recent thread here describing mythbuntu-bare as a backup program.

The remote thing just provides a link to the android and ios remote controls.
