Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Not too long ago Mark Shuttleworth proposed a delay of six weeks for the release of Ubuntu Dapper Drake. Today, after discussion within the community, the delay was approved and announced. "June 1st 2006 is the updated release date for Ubuntu Dapper, Desktop and Server editions, a delay of 6 weeks over the previous release date of April 20." More information in the release schedule.

Dapper Delayed

Good move Ubuntu. While I realise Dapper Flight 5 was a beta it was far from production ready. Many libraries were either not included or not fully available (the GTKLIB 1.2 (I think) libraries required for my Samsung laser printer are typical).

I thought I would take the risk with Flight 5 but after several days of frustration reloaded Breazy Badger and everything is now back to normal.

I really like Ubuntu and for me its much more important to get it right rather than meet some artificial delivery deadline - a bad release will do Ubuntu (and Linux in general) more harm than slavishly meeting unnecessary release schedules.

Keep up the good work!

Regards,
Peter
