Introducing the Hardy Heron

I am delighted to have the pleasure of announcing the Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04), the next version of Ubuntu that will succeed Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10, due for release in October 2007). Not only will the Ubuntu community continue to do what it does best, produce an easy-to-use, reliable, free software platform, but this release will proudly wear the badge of Long Term Support (LTS) and be supported with security updates for five years on the server and three years on the desktop. We look forward to releasing the Hardy Heron in April 2008.

With the opening of each new release cycle of Ubuntu, we have more and more opportunity at our fingertips. Not only are our friends in the upstream world constantly innovating and extending their applications and software, but the Ubuntu community continues to see incredible growth in its diverse range of areas such as packaging, development, documentation, quality assurance, translations, LoCo teams and more. Each new release gives us all an opportunity to shine, irrespective of which bricks in the project we are laying, and this is at the heart of our belief – working together to produce an Operating System that will empower its users and shape the IT industry, putting free software at the corner-stone of our direction.

Most people only ever see the end-user view of Ubuntu, running it on their desktops, servers and mobile devices around the world. For these users, Ubuntu provides a simple, convenient means to do what they want to do easily, effectively and without unnecessary complexity. For many of us though, we want to open up the hood and understand how the system works and how to extend and grow it. Thousands of us get out of bed every day, united behind Ubuntu, ready to make a difference, working together to make our vision happen.

Importantly, our ethos of collaboration and freedom extends to the development process as well as the end product. As such, the Ubuntu development process is a very open, transparent one, and anyone is welcome to get involved. It works like this:

  • Everyone is welcome to think of and develop ideas for features that could be present in the Hardy Heron release. These ideas are written as specifications (detailed documents outlining how the idea would work and be implemented). You are welcome to add your specifications to https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu.
  • In October 2007, we will hold the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA and generate a schedule of sessions to discuss these specifications. The sessions provide a means for interested parties to help scope out the proposed feature and determine methods and plans to implement it. The Ubuntu Developer Summit is a semi-virtual event in which those who cannot attend can dial in with VoIP and use IRC and collaborative editing with Gobby to take part in the summit.

Everyone is welcome to participate, everyone is welcome to get involved, and everyone is welcome to help shape the form of the Hardy Heron. Let’s work together to shake things up, make things happen and make the most compelling Ubuntu release yet. Start your engines…

    Indeed, usually Mark did the announcements. Also, usually the announcement indicated the direction in which the release would go. That didn’t always work out very well (cfr the delay of the default desktop effects), and I suppose that is why this announcement doesn’t say anything about direction.

    [...] Dar nepasirodė būsimoji „Gutsy Gibbon“ Ubuntu 7.10 versija, kai paskelbta apie kitą, pasirodysiančią 2008-ųjų balandį. Sekant abėcėle ir Ubuntu pavadinimų metodika „būdvardis+gyvūnas iš tos pačios raidės“, ji vadinsis „Hardy Heron“. Kol kas daugiau beveik nieko apie ją nežinoma, išskyrus tai, kad nuo aštuntosios versijos Ubuntu turės trijų metų (vartotojo versijai) ir penkių metų (serverio versijai) techninę pagalbą. Ar ta pagalba bus el. paštu, ar bus telefono numeris, kuriuo paskambinus ilgai gros visokios melodijos, dar neaišku. [...]

    In celebration of Hardy Heron I have built a python script to help future generations name ubuntu releases. It can be found on http://whijo.net/blog/brad/2007/09/02/hardy-heron.html

    It needs a bigger corpus of animal names, but it is good for now.

    [...] According to Jono Bacon’s Blog, the Ubuntu Community Leader, the next LTS release of Ubuntu (the future 8.04) will be the Hardy Heron. Let’s make it the best version ever done by us, to progress in the bug #1 solving ! Each version is such a great challenge that the community raises each time… The next will surely be one of the greatest, with KDE 4, and some new GNOME technologies, and maybe some surprises from the Telepathy developers (VOIP and file transfert in empathy). Such great things that we all waiting for… Let’s finish the Gutsy Gibbon and then make the Heron fly !

    [...] This is great news and Ubuntu is advancing rapidly as the biggest and one of the best distributions in Linux history, and putting a face to Linux that people can identify with and see for its benefits, even when they have never seen any Linux before. The announcement was made by Jono Bacon on August 29 this year on his blog at this address.

    Linux distro’s are almost there, but too many different installers, not enough simple ways to do things, very poor legacy hardware support, and extremely poor documentation in simple language. Some people like to discover how to operate things, but the abysmal support, will turn most people off! I learned how to operate, install configure,and build computers, on my own, using windows. The support was there for me, but linux distro’s are a pain with the bad support. Get a unified installer, that installs all pkg’s, better user switching, and above all much better support, maybe I will install a distro again. For now it’s not there yet. Make the priority of linux to be simple like windows and osx.

    I agree with riab. I want to go the linux path but too much out of date info. Not enough info for newbies to choose a distro. Just putting Hardy Heron on a virtual machine but not likely to learn enough to to inspire me to move from microsoft

    Dear Jono, it’s been a while since Hardy was released. Because it it an LTS release, people tend to rely on those 3 little letters as quality markers. But with Hardy i can tell for sure it is not QUALITY, not long term support, i found an overhelming count of bugs related to hardy, wich have been never resolved, instead people are told the should upgrade to next versions. I am asking, why is this not communicated in the community: Hardy was a failure, people do not use that version…

    I am very sad and frustrated because hardy makes my life a hell since i installed it on a serverfarm about 6 months ago. Tomorrow night we will be upgrading to Intrepid, and well see.
