Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” Release Schedule

Mark Shuttleworth announced the codename of Ubuntu 11.04 a couple of days back. It is “Natty Narwhal” in case you missed it.

Even Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat” has not been released yet, but the release schedule of Natty Narwhal is already out. According to it, Ubuntu 11.04 is scheduled for release on 28th April 2011.

This time around there is a bit of a change in the pre-final releases. With Ubuntu 11.04, there will be five alpha releases instead of the three during the Maverick development cycle. The number of beta and RC remains same at one each.

Anyway, here is the release schedule:

Release Date
Alpha 1 4th Novembe 2010
Alpha 2 2nd December 2010
Alpha 3 6th January 2011
Alpha 4 3rd February 2011
Alpha 5 3rd March 2011
