Two days ago, Martin Pitt -stable release updates manager in Ubuntu- announced the release of the third alpha version of Ubuntu 10.10, internally known as “Maverick Meerkat”. Maverick Meerkat alpha 3 will become Ubuntu 10.10 in October 10.

It is interesting to devote some time to the Maverick blueprint list to know the details in the feature development. For a detailed analysis of Ubuntu’s Maverick Meerkat release cycle, have a look at at this post.

Let’s go through new features in this alpha 3 release. From the visual point of view, there aren’t too many changes since alpha 2. The most important interface changes were introduced to Unity. Most of the development focused on Ubuntu Netbook Edition.

Ubuntu Desktop got some improvements to the Sound Indicator, Ubuntu Software Center and that’s about it while Unity in Ubuntu Netbook Edition got some major changes, there is also a new Indicator DateTime. An important decision is that Ubuntu 10.10 will ship with Firefox 3.6 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition won’t have Chromium by default after all (it will also ship Firefox 3.6). Also, Ubuntu 10.10 will have a new font that is already available for testing (you will need a Launchpad account).

One of the most innovative part of this alpha released is OneConf. You should know that the first version of OneConf has been released. It is available in the default software repositories. OneConf can be installed as usual via the Synaptic Package Manager. It allows you to synchronize the applications installed on your Ubuntu desktops, laptops or netbook machines, via the Ubuntu One service. After the installation, OneConf can be found in the File menu of the Ubuntu Software Center application and it is entitled “Inventory on Ubuntu One“.

The next Fedora release, Fedora 13, will be named “Goddard”, after the famous Rocket scientist Robert H. Goddard. Goddard has some really cool new features; Fedora traditionally includes leading-edge features to their releases, usually sacrificing stability in favor of innovation.I must admit I love that they don’t treat the user as an idiot, but sometimes they go a bit far.

Let’s focus on the upcoming release of Fedora 13, planned for May 11, 2010, which will include the 2.6.33 kernel. The last Alpha version still ships the 2.6.32 kernel.
