Ubuntu 7.04 Alpha 1

The first alpha version of the upcoming Ubuntu general update 7.04 is ready for public testing. From the releace announcement:

Welcome to Feisty Fawn Herd 1, which will in time become Ubuntu 7.04. Herd 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Feisty development cycle. The Herd images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing very current snapshots of Feisty. The primary changes from Edgy have been the re-merging of changes from Debian. Common to all variants, we have upgraded the kernel to 2.6.19

So get ready to Ubuntu :)
