We are pleased to announce that Ubuntu GNOME is now an official Ubuntu flavour. We recently applied to the Tech Board to become an official Ubuntu flavour and the Tech Board approved our request at their most recent meeting!
Ubuntu GNOME aims to bring a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience to Ubuntu. Our first release for 12.10 showed that there was a strong demand for a great GNOME experience on Ubuntu and we are now working towards our second release based on Ubuntu 13.04.
We will not be participating in this week’s Beta 1 Release but we are planning to release images for the Final Beta at the end of the month. Daily image builds are currently being set up and we except that they will be available within a few weeks.
Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 will be released with GNOME 3.6, since Ubuntu held back on GNOME this cycle. We are however making GNOME 3.8 available from
the GNOME3 PPA.
As always we are on the lookout for new contributors. There are plenty of tasks beyond coding and packaging that we could use help with!
