Ubuntu 9.04 “Jaunty Jackalope” is now available! Major new features in this release include:
- Boot performance has been improved, even without Ext4 you should notice a speedup.
- The slick new notification system is enabled.
- The latest version of the GNOME desktop environment is included.
- OpenOffice has been updated to version 3.0.
- Ext4 filesystems are now supported (but Ext3 is still the default for now).
If you’ve installed from an alpha, beta, or release candidate CD all you need to do is install any available updates to get the final release version. If you need a CD, be sure to use the Bit Torrent downloads.
