Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu With Breezy Badger on its way its time for the announcement of what the next +1 release will be called, and the Ubuntu team has decided that the next +1 release (6.04) will be called The Dapper Drake. This release of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years after release, and the Ubuntu developers are going to work as hard and as long as possible on Dapper Drake, as it's what they're going to release in response to MS's release of Windows Vista.

- A better graphic-mode package manager, as efficiant as Aptitude, and even more.

Is part of Breezy.

- An out of the box support for MP3 and other commercial standard

Can't because of legal issues.

- Merge the installation discs of the three branch, so you could select witch Ubuntu flavor you want during the installation and not during the download.

Not everyone has broadband.

- Have the possiblity to use scripts during the installation to make custom builded distro on Ubuntu base (would be usefull in entreprise environnement) la M$ RIS.

Well....they are working on lauchpad.


- More support for user gadget, like webcam, usb scanner (I know it's kernel side, but I guess there should be at least one guy in the distro sitting at the kernel dev table)


Thats not really in Ubuntu's hands.

All in all, Ubuntu has made good progress...and the Drake will be the first "big" release.
