Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Ubuntu team not only released the first release candidate for Edgy Eft (release notes), but also started pondering their next release, dubbed the 'Feisty Fawn'. "In the next cycle we'll expand on the brand new infrastructure that has landed in Edgy as well as branching out in some exciting new directions. This combination of courage and restlessness is also found in a young deer that sets out to explore a world that is new and exciting - seeing the world through eyes unprejudiced by what has gone before. In that spirit, the release will be be code named 'The Feisty Fawn'."

Nothing exciting in Eft? They updated Gnome from 2.14 to 2.16 and many other applications get hefty updates. For Dapper the order of the day was safety due to LTS but caution was thrown to the wind for new features in Eft even though a lot of the new features were not immediately evident to users [eg Xorg update].

Eft was more about building a foundation for future releases after the stability-oriented Dapper.
