Ubuntu 11.10: Release the Ocelot!

The latest version of Ubuntu, 11.10 codenamed Oneiric Ocelot, was released on October 13.

What’s new?
You can see the list of new features on the official Ubuntu website, or take the snazzy visual tour. You can download directly from the Ubuntu Download page.

You can follow the same upgrade process as normal. Simply upgrade from the Update Manager and your settings, files and bookmarks will stay the same.

The Unity launcher and dash are distinctive features in this release; defaulting to Unity 3-D with a fallback to Unity 2-D. There is no Gnome desktop installed in this version. You can of course, opt to go Kubuntu (KDE) or Xubuntu (Xfce).
