Ubuntu 7.10 debuts - Java stack rev'ed

Today the latest version of Ubuntu, 7.10 (nee "Gutsy Gibbon") debuted. 

It got a very good review from Wired and Ashlee seemed to like it too (although it doesn't look like he's been paying attention when it comes to Sun systems :).  To see what exactly the new features are, e.g. 3D desktop effects, app armor, fast user switching etc.,  check this out.

Sun Software

The "Java Stack" (not an official name), which was first included in the Ubuntu 7.04 Multiverse is in 7.10 as well and features updated versions: 

  • JDK6u3
  • NetBeans 5.5.1
  • Java DB 10.2.2
  • GlassFish v1 (ok so this one didn't change, v2 came out too late to make the cut off)

Sun Systems

Also, as I mentioned in an entry last week, Gutsy will support the new UltraSPARC based rack servers -- Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 and the T5220.  Look for more details on this and other platforms coming soon.

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
