Ubuntu GNOME approved as official flavour

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

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!

Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 Released!

The Ubuntu GNOME developers are proud to announce today’s release of the Ubuntu GNOME Remix.

The Ubuntu GNOME Remix is an unofficial Ubuntu flavor that aims to bring the best of GNOME to Ubuntu users. The 12.10 release is our first stable release and is recommended for anyone interested in the GNOME experience.

This release includes most of GNOME 3.6. To see what’s new, check out http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.6/

As this is our first release, there are still a few minor issues. For more details, see our release notes.

Contributors Welcome

We welcome contributions from anyone who is willing to help make the Ubuntu GNOME Remix better.
