Ubuntu Tribe 1 Released

Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 1, which will in time become Ubuntu 7.10 has just been released. Keep in mind this is a pre-release!

Pre-releases of Gutsy are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

Tribe 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Gutsy development cycle. The Tribe images are known to be reasonably free of show stopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of Gutsy. You can download it here:

The primary changes from Feisty have been the re-merging of changes from Debian. Common to all variants, we have upgraded the kernel to 2.6.22.

Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/tribe1 for information on
changes in Ubuntu, https://wiki.kubuntu.org/GutsyGibbon/Tribe1/Kubuntu for
changes in Kubuntu, and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GutsyGibbon/Tribe1/Xubuntu
for Xubuntu details.

This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs. Among these are the following (so you don't need to bother reporting these if you encounter them):

* The Gnome logout dialog does not offer suspend and hibernate.

* When using manual partitioning, the Kubuntu desktop installer will sometimes generate a crash report. However, it will continue to work, so the report can safely be ignored. https://launchpad.net/bugs/118967

If you're interested in following the changes as we further develop Gutsy, have a look at the gutsy-changes mailing list:


We also suggest that you subscribe to the ubuntu-devel-announce list if you're interested in following Ubuntu development. This is a low-traffic list (a few posts a week) carrying announcements of approved specifications, policy changes, alpha releases, and other interesting events.
