The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 13.10 for Desktop, Server, Cloud, Phone, and Core products.
Codenamed "Saucy Salamander", 13.10 continues Ubuntus proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
Ubuntu 13.10 introduces the first release of Ubuntu for phones and Ubuntu Core for the new 64-bit ARM systems (the "arm64" architecture, also known as AArch64 or ARMv8), and improved AppArmor confinement. In addition to these flagship features there are also major updates throughout.
Ubuntu Server 13.10 includes the Havana release of OpenStack, alongside deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when deploying distributed applications whether on private clouds, public clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops. Several key server technologies, from MAAS to Ceph, have been updated to new upstream versions with a variety of new features.
Maintenance updates will be provided for Ubuntu 13.10 for 9 months, through July 2014.
The newest Kubuntu 13.10, Edubuntu 13.10, Xubuntu 13.10, Lubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu GNOME 13.10, UbuntuKylin 13.10, and Ubuntu Studio 13.10 are also being released today. More details can be found for some of these at their individual release announcements:
