Ubuntu 9.10 was released a few hours back. The release comes with new features. The promising ones are:
Use of GRUB2:
GRUB2 is available in the Karmic Koala final release. It has completely replaced GRUB. The new bootloader has been re-written from scratch.
Use of ext-4 file system:
ext-4 is the default file system for the new version of Ubuntu. Options for using the earlier file systems are also present.
Better installation process:
A better installation is included as against the earlier boring installation. The new installation shows general information while the installation proceeds.
The boot screen or the boot splash screen has been completely changed. It looks much classier now.
Instead of the initial add-remove software, we now have a software center to serve all your software needs.
A new set of wallpapers has been included for a change.
These are some of the improvements that are visible during common usage of Ubuntu Linux.
