Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Beta 2 Available For Download

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Beta 2 is now available for download. Although it has some small changes, it does not have any striking difference from the earlier Beta 1. If you are using Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 1 with regular updates, there is no need to install the Beta 2 for you. If nothing goes wrong, this is will be the final beta before the final release.

You can download Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 2 from http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/beta2.

Here is a brief overview of the changes that Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Beta 2 have:

  • The windows control buttons are still on the left but their order have been changed to Close, Minimize and Maximize.
  • The new Ubuiquity slideshow is now live.
  • Ubuntu One can sync Firefox bookmarks and mobile contacts.
  • Rythmbox finally has the UbuntuOne Music Store plugin.
  • New logos and icons in GDM and various other locations.

    Am using Lucid Beta 1. My question though, if I simply get all the updates, am I upgraded to Beta 2? Or is that only gained my a fresh install?

    • Yes, if you are using Beta 1 with all the updates you are upgraded to Beta 2.

    Slightly off-topic
    Would you recommend to do a fresh install from beta 2 to the release candidate or simply update as we did from beta 1 to beta 2?

    • I would recommend a fresh install of the release candidate.

    I would recommend a fresh install of the release candidate.
