Ubuntu 13.04 Released

Ubuntu 13.04, the Raring Ringtail, was released today. Go and download it for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and for our Chinese friends, download Ubuntu Kylin. You can find all the details of what is new in Ubuntu 13.04 on www.ubuntu.com.

Ubuntu 13.04 is a fantastic release, and I just want to offer thanks to the many people around the world in our community who helped make it happen. Folks such as developers, app/charm authors, designers, testers, triagers, translators, sys-admins, support providers, governors, docs writers, advocates, and more, all contributed their brick in the wall to delivering Ubuntu 13.04 across Desktop, Server, and Cloud, and continuing to bring freedom and elegance in technology to more people. But this is only part of the story, as behind the scenes, but in full public view, we are continuing to evolve Ubuntu towards our convergence goals. This will be a common theme as we march forward to Ubuntu 13.10, the Saucy Salamander.

I know many of us are tired after a hectic release schedule, so take some time to enjoy the release, get together with other Ubuntu friends, and celebrate Ubuntu 13.04! I will certainly be blowing the froth off a few cold ones tonight. :-)

    This is such a huge improvement from 12.04! Everything is so much faster and provides a more social experience.

    Did you copyright “blowing the froth” or can we make that viral now with a jono head?

    Unfortunately, that is not my invention. :-)

    I upgraded to 13.04 and now there’s no sound through the HTMI lead. Wonderful!

    Brilliant release, Unity seems faster than before; whether that’s because of a fresh install IDK but definitely an enjoyable experience for me.
