By on October 13th, 2011

Following the regular six-month release cycle, Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot is here to impress everyone. This new release of Ubuntu brings vast improvements and many awaited features. The UX changes that were introduced in Ubuntu 11.04 have been perfected in version 11.10 and the new version comes with a bold claim- “Welcome to a whole new world”.

Ubuntu 11.10 comes with the new Linux kernel version 3.0, which has automatic defragmentation, support for new hardware and new drivers. Gnome has been upgraded to version 3.2. However, what may come as a visible change to users is the improved Unity interface. The Unity application launcher has been revamped and it looks much slicker now.

The Ubuntu announce mailing list made the release announcement saying,

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 11.10, code-named “Oneiric Ocelot”. 11.10 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.

Existing users can upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu.  As usual, Ubuntu comes in two flavors this time too. There is a desktop edition and a server edition, which  recently got ARM support. You can  head over to the download page  to download the version of Ubuntu Oneiric suitable for you.
