October 26th, 2006, 06:50 AM
Zdnet Australia have noticed that Thursday 26th will be Release Day for Ubuntu 6.10. The version has been code-named Edgy Eft and follows the naming scheme of previous releases, where by the current year and month form the version number. Included in the article are a run-down of features, with the opening paragraphs dedicated to the init-replacement named upstart (http://upstart.ubuntu.com/).
The full story includes feature list (http://news.zdnet.com/2100-3513_22-6129594.html) covering the web browser and tools that will be included:

Edgy Eft also comes with the newest version 2.6 of the Gnome graphical user interface; fans of the KDE alternative can use a variant called Kubuntu.
The new Linux product also includes Firefox 2.0, released Wednesday, and two applications that use Novell’s Mono software foundation: Tomboy, for taking notes, and F-Spot, for sorting, tagging and uploading photos. It also includes version 2.8 of the Evolution e-mail software.
The report notes that our friends over at the Fedora Project (http://fedora.redhat.com/) made their latest Core 6 release less than 48hours ago. Grab a peek at the full report (http://ubuntuforums.org/) for all their coverage.
