Ubuntu 7.10 is out now
Canonical Ltd. has announced the availability of version 7.10 of the Ubuntu Server, Desktop, Kubuntu and Edubuntu Editions. Canonical Ltd is the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu.

The company says Ubuntu makes no distinction between community and enterprise editions, and has consistently ranked #1 in reviews of security update responsiveness and effectiveness. The Ubuntu platform is fully certified and supported, making it a secure choice for users looking to explore, deploy and enjoy Linux.

Ubuntu 7.10 brings together open source and free software available in a stable, robust environment.

'We are privileged to have millions of users running Ubuntu every day". commented Jane Silber, COO of Canonical UK. 'This gives us great insight into what they want from a free, Linux-based platform. Ubuntu 7.10 is another milestone in delivering on these requirements on the desktop and server.'

Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Edition adds an enhanced user interface, improved hardware support, multiple monitor support and integrated desktop search. Additional information is available at http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-desktop710.

The latest version of Ubuntu includes an improved plug-and-play configuration for printers, as well as automatic firmware installation for Broadcom cards, full support external VGA (projector) support and the ability to manage multiple monitors.

Users with a dual partition can read from and and write to files that are on located in a Windows partition (including NTFS).

Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition features improved functionality, manageability, pro-active security and hardware compatibility and delivers a rapid deployment platform for developers and businesses.

In the new server version users will find that AppArmor provides enhanced security which protects the server from intrusion. Common server applications such as Apache and Postfix are protected with default policies. Administrators can easily lock down programs and resources and add policies for their specific requirements.

A tailored kernel optimized for use in virtualized environments, suited for virtual appliances. This new kernel includes many improvements for paravirtualization, one of which is VMI (Virtual Machine Interface), a new independent way for hypervisors to relate to the kernel.

New versions of Kubuntu and Edubuntu, derivatives of Ubuntu aimed at KDE enthusiasts and the education community respectively, are also being released at the same time.
