Well, two more days to go before the final release of Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. So, what’s new with Ubuntu 9.04?
A new kernel running on Linux 2.6.28. The new Linux kernel contains a new wireless stack and support for new devices. The new kernel also introduces a new file system called the ext4. The older ext3 file system is still the default, but users can gain faster boot time and performance with ext4.
A new GUI, Gnome 2.26 with support for MAPI in the Evolution mail client. Gnome 2.26 also boast support for multiple monitors and support for configurable keyboard shortcuts or hot keys.
And of course, more brown themes! There is Dust, Dust Sand and New Wave.
