+ - Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal available today->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The six month cycle that Canonical adheres to for Ubuntu releases has come around again today. Ubuntu 12.10 ‘Quantal Quetzal‘ has been released. There's a whole range of new features and updates, but here's the most important:

- WebApps — treats online services as if they are desktop apps (Gmail, Twitter, Facebook)
- Online Services — control logins to all your services from a single window and get them integrated into search results (e.g. GDocs for file searches)
- Dash Preview — right click any icon, get a detailed preview of what it is
- Linux kernel 3.5.4, GNOME 3.6, Nautilus 3.4, latest Unity
- No more Unity 2D, fallback is the Gallium llvmpipe software rasterizer
- Default apps (Firefox 16.01, Thunderbird 16.01, LibreOffice 3.6.2, Totem, Shotwell, Rythmbox)
- Full disc encryption available during install
- Single, 800MB distribution for all architectures

Download should appear today at some point."
