Distribution, codenamed Maverick Meerkat, speeds boot time, enhances cloud integration.

Canonical and the Ubuntu team yesterday released the latest version of its Linux distribution, formerly codenamed Maverick Meerkat, to beta, with a release candidate expected in October.

Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition and Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition deliver faster boot speeds, improved start-up times, and a smoother, more streamlined boot experience, according to Ubuntu and Canonical.

Ubuntu 10.10 Server Edition features enhanced integration of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud through its install-time cloud setup, Ubuntu said. In addition, the latest server version brings "the power and stability of the Ubuntu Server Edition to cloud computing, whether you're using Amazon EC2 or your own Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud," said Robbie Williamson, engineering manager at Canonical, in a statement.

The server beta's new features include pluggable hooks, ebsmount, et4 support, and new stanzas in the cloud-configuration format, Ubuntu said. By using Amazon's pv-grub, cloud image instances now can manage their own kernel and also upgrade kernels, the company said.
