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.
