    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 trusty alpha??

    I think it was like that when 13.10 started out too. This new version will get more and more features showing '14.04 properties' ...

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 trusty alpha?

    Ubuntu 14.04 will not have any Alpha releases and only one beta release. The flavours of Ubuntu may have 2 Alpha releases and 2 beta releases if the developers so choose. For those flavours that opt-in Alpha 1 will be released on Thursday 19th December according to the official schedule.

    Each development release is built very much upon the last released version. The best place to get ISO images of the development branch is here

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/

    But as you notice, at present there are no ISO images for Trusty Tahr. It will take a few days before we see them. An important factor to consider if you install that image is the repositories. Are saucy repositories or trusty repositories?

    @redalien0304

    Have a look through this thread

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2183074

    If you download one of those trusty ISO images, install and then update you should find that things are working fine. I have just done it. It will look exaclty like 13.10 but if you run

    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    you should see this

    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (development branch)
    Release: 14.04
    Codename: trusty
    And you are on the beginning of a journey. This seems to be happening a lot quicker than previous development cycles. Two things to remember. 1) Don't ever accept the offer of a partial upgrade. 2) The Extras repositories are not open so expect to get an error out of Update Manager. Just OK and the update will take place as normal.



    Regards.

    So no kernel upgrades, no new packages etc... ?
    Partial upgrade is a must in many cases but it should be performed with caution and full understanding...
    Did not we have sticky about that?

    I agree with you in part, but we shouldn't recommend partial upgrades unless the user is an experienced Ubuntu development release tester. Doing a partial upgrade can get a new tester in a whole heap of trouble, so for the most part I will still recommend against doing a partial upgrade.

    Yes there is a sticky here, look at the common problems link.

    I do think that we agree in each and every part. I (certainly and easily checked) do not recommend PU. But, also, I'm aware that it is needed in many situations.. Especially in U+1Testing. So, as far as I can see we do not have any disagreement...
