With Feisty Fawn shaping up to be the best Ubuntu release ever, the Ubuntu team is hard at work with Gutsy Gibson. Please post any comments or suggestions here that you feel that Gutsy should benefit from.

1. Gutsy should have a built-in RAID utility for easy RAID 1/0 installation on the default cd.

Firestarter should be installed by default.

The release is called Gutsy Gibbon..

Suggestion: Provide a tickless 2.6.21 kernel for notebooks.

That would probably come automatically when they update the kernel. Too bad Feisty came out a week before 2.6.21 did.

One odd thing I've noticed though when upgrading Feisty to the development version of Gutsy: There's a 2.6.22 kernel image available. I thought 2.6.22 was not even out yet :?

There's already an RC3 for 2.6.22, which came out two days after 2.6.21. I guess kernels are in testing (really) long before they come out.

I don't really understand why Ubuntu releases these Alphas out into the wild instead of keeping them in the testing communities. I assume the initial purpose of building those teams was for clearing out the forums / launchpad not having a few newbies who want to be on the "bleeding edge" his purpose andof amazingness when there is nothing but problems to be found.

First alpha ("tribe") of Gutsy Gibbon has been released for testing. And they did include a tickless 2.6.22 kernel AFAIK.

I am currently using gutsy, and I only wish that ATI will make some quality video drivers so I can have opengl, hardware acceleration, AND beryl.

I like it so far, I've only seen a few minor changes, but have had no problems, plus its kinda nice having 40-90 updates a day :D

I've been using Gutsy for some weeks on a testing machine (on my production systems, it's strictly Debian or Gentoo) and I have noticed some problems with packages from the pre-alpha 1 stage, for example, spell-checking didn't work anymore, fonts became ugly, and probably some more. Ah, KDE's Control Center wouldn't work. I'll see if they got that fixed now.
As for having dozens of updates a day, it's similar to Debian Sid: You get the latest and greatest but some things may break. For the time being, I'd recommend Ubuntu users to stick to 7.04. Nothing too exciting in 7.10 yet.

You can have OpenGL and Beryl. Just not quality drivers :D

hmm... well, not even that! with fiesty, I could get all 3 pieces running for a good hour or two, but something would break!. with gutsy, the drivers don't even work! (I heard it was a incompatibility with the new linux kernel - 2.6.21.x or higher)

Just buy a Nvidia card, use apt-get to install the drivers, and then download Beryl through the package manager and install directly. No need for OpenGL.

You could probably use the free driver.

You do know that the whole point of the nVidia driver is that it provides a specific OpenGL extension (GLX_texture_from_pixmap IIRC) that AIGLX and Xgl have to emulate, right?

Correctamundo! That's why I like the Nvidia driver, because Nvidia actually cares about Linux. ATI has never put more than 2 developers into their Linux room at one time.

Can't. The DMCA prohibits it.

Probably not, as KDE 4.0 is set to come out october 23, 5 days after the release of kubuntu.

I should release Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon with KDE 4.0, because the people don't have to upgrade a few days later to KDE 4.0, and Gutsy Gibbon is more interesting.
