Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 3 has been released

Kate Stewart has announced the availability of the third alpha release of Ubuntu 12.10, code name "Quantal Quetzal": "Welcome to the Quantal Quetzal alpha 3 image set, which will in time become the 12.10 release." Some of the features in this release include a streamlined Software Updater and X.Org Server 1.12: "Update Manager has been streamlined and renamed Software Updater. It also now checks for updates when launched. A new X.Org stack has been introduced which includes X.Org Server 1.12, Mesa 8.0.3, and updated X libraries and drivers. The new X.Org Server provides improved multiseat support, better smooth scrolling, and a large variety of bug fixes."

Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
