But all my mirrors swamped,
And my torrents are throttled,
Got the jonesing for my update blues
The hopefully final beta for Ubuntu 8.04 has been released and from all reports should be a Hardier Heron. ITWire has a good write up on the new features and focus on stability / Long Term Suuport for this release.
No exact release date in April has been confirmed, but, based on past history I just added a new task to my Calendar for Saturday 19 April, Test Ubuntu 8.04. Might slip by a week, but that's where my money is.
