A to the point article at the Tolero’s tech notes blog covers all the new features and changes in the upcoming Ubuntu 7.10 release. During the development I have written and tried out a lot of the new features, but there were are few little things I didn’t see. Here the the features I missed which you may have also:

  • startup and shutdown splash screens don’t flash anymore
  • NTFS file system support is enabled by default
  • X does not need to be restarted to use new settings
  • login to GNOME will work even with a full file system
  • brushes in the Gimp image editor are scalable
  • the new wireless and Firewire stacks are included in the kernel
  • collaboration between Canonical and Intel to reduce power consumption

The beta of Ubuntu 7.10 should be released soon, followed by a release candidate.
