Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” Alpha 1 has been delayed one day to November 30. Later today I will update this post after I have the alpha running in VirtualBox.
Hardy Release Schedule
The alpha has been officially released. It is available for download from Ubuntu.
Not much has changed yet. The only difference that I noticed immediately was that the screen resolution was lower in VirtualBox than usual. This could be caused by the new Xserver 1.4 included in alpha 1.
