10-19-2012, 11:36 AM

tonight, the Ubuntu team has released the new version of Ubuntu:
Ubuntu 12.10! It has a name that follows the alphabet so after
latest "Precise Pangoline", which is also an LTS release
with 5 years of support, now it's 'Q' as "quality".

The name of the new Ubuntu is:

Quantal Quetzal

and is now available at OVH!

Quetzal, which is also the name of a very colorful bird species,
follow you in your plans for the next 18 months.

This variation 'Server' marks a new real orientation
towards "Cloud" (who said Qloud?). With the integration of Juju in
OpenStack, which will simplify application deployment
within and between the clouds.

As always, it is a basic install with only the services
for SSH and DNS preinstalled. It is available for servers
dedicated 32-bit and 64-bit, both for ordering and reinstallation.
Then it will most likely also be available in VPS with some

The new Ubuntu is currently in BETA, do not hesitate to
send your comments here or on the forum:

In the same time we remove the version 11.04 which will
be in "EOL" (End Of Life) by ten days.
