Canonical has published the release candidate for Ubuntu 10.04--code-named Lucid Lynx--which offers a new look, better integration with cloud infrastructure, and features designed to be more consumer-friendly.
The release on Thursday came two weeks after the beta was made available for public testing. The OS update is now more or less complete, Canonical said. "We consider this release candidate to be complete, stable and suitable for testing by any user," Ubuntu release manager Steve Langasek said in a statement.
The release leaves Canonical free to aim for more radical changes with the Ubuntu version scheduled for completion in October called Maverick Meerkat.
