By joe 2 comments

Canonical CTO Matt Zimmerman, the man leading Ubuntu Linux’s development, described a few goals of the 7.10 release — scheduled for October. Here are the highlights.

On the desktop, 7.10 will support:

  • a3D interface out of the box
  • multi-monitor configuration
  • laptop power profiling
  • more details still to come

On the server, 7.10 will offer:

  • Turn-key web administration
  • One-step server recipes
  • Proactive security with AppArmor, an increasingly popular open source security option
  • “desktop” type simplicity

That’s it for the highlights. Short and sweet, and to the point.
