Linux Maverick Meerkat, the version of Ubuntu slated to be released later this year, brings with it several features and improvements that the Linux community has been eagerly looking forward to. I've taken a look at the blueprints for this next release, and picked out a few of the major items that Linux end-users will be interested in. Here are 5 things to look forward to in Ubuntu 10.10.

No new features.
Just make the ones that are already there work as expected...

It is not rocket science. The number of bugs for an LTS is truly amazing. Come on Canonical, stop trying to out Fedora Fedora.

Stabilty, Stability & even more Stability

That enough for you?

If you can't do that then please have the guts to pull the stuff that is clearly not up to standard.

There's a difference between being stable and using 2 year old packages ;)

Fixing bugs doesn't get them news much but thinking of switching default applications and filesystems does.

It's good that they're taking their own spin on the GNOME desktop but it should be solid now after 30 versions of GNOME, yet loads of bugs persist.

When are distro going to fix upsteam bugs that get filtered down to them? Well, it's just not news.
