Now that Ubuntu 22.10 has a release schedule and release date set in stone, it’s time for Canonical to kick off the development cycle and start releasing build ISOs daily for early adopters and developers. apps.
Dubbed Kinetic Kudu, Ubuntu 22.10 is due out later this year on October 20, 2022, and Canonical’s Brian Murray was the one who announce end of April that Ubuntu 22.10 is officially open for development.
And now Canonical has released the very first daily build ISO images for Ubuntu 22.10 (Kinetic Kudu)inviting early adopters and interested app developers to test the upcoming release to find and report bugs.
Along with the Ubuntu Desktop and Server flavors, you’ll also find daily releases for the official Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Ubuntu MATE flavors, which you can grab right now from the download server. Additionally, you can also download the pre-installed Ubuntu desktop image for Raspberry Pi ARM64 from here.
Of course, when testing these daily build images, you should always keep in mind that they are based on the previous version of Ubuntu, in this case, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish). This means they will come with pretty much the same under-the-hood and visual changes up until the beta.
During the six-month development cycle, these components will be updated to newer versions, but it’s far too early to tell what final versions of Ubuntu 22.10 software will ship with. One thing is certain, namely the fact that the desktop environment will be based on the next Gnome 43 release scheduled for September 21, 2022.
If my calculations are correct, Ubuntu 22.10 should also ship with the Linux 5.19 kernel series, scheduled for late July or early August. This will give Ubuntu developers plenty of time to test it on various hardware until the “Kernel Freeze” development stage on October 6. I know Linux kernel 5.20 will be released in early October, but there won’t be enough room for the tests to be included in Kinetic Kudu.
If you want to follow the development of Ubuntu 22.10 (Kinetic Kudu) and be the first to discover its biggest new features and improvements, I recommend you follow 9to5Linux.com as I will try to cover all its major changes until than the final version on October 20, 2022.
