So is there any ETA or any new features reported for 8.1?

9.04...When is it expected to be announced?

#1, get a clue, it's 8.10, not 8.1, as in October 2008. Ubuntu version numbers are Year.Month, which will also answer your other question.

#2, http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/intrepid/ ... ntu%208.04

I just spent last night upgrading th Intrepid (update-manager -d) and Woah... I can't really describe anything specific, but it just FEELS nice. Of course, it kind of killed my machine (I couldn't log in, X didn't start, had to do a sudo dpkg-reconfigure xerver-xorg and then run that program that recreates the xserver settings and recon gdm and openbox and manually edit some files for session-manager to make openbox work...), anyways, glad I did it. I'm working on slimming down the packages I have and making sure I have all the packages I need, then I'll make a custom install disc for Intrepid. And probably some scripts to let you slim down your install as well.

Only downside is it looks like no OpenOffice.org 3.0 out of the box since it was released so late. But, there have been a ton of changes (especially with networking from what I hear).
