Some days will see a new version of this Linux distribution that has been responsible for popularizing this increasingly operating system.
Much has already been published by some blogs. Some of the new things that are coming are:
- Performance improvement in boot
- Empathy as the default instant messenger client (instead of Pidgin)
- Gnome 2.28, with improved login manager
- Ubuntu One installed by default, as storing and sharing files on the network.
- Ext4 file system as default, instead of ext3, it has a better performance (but I can not say exactly if it is stable)
- GRUB 2 como boot loader
