(K)ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) is out

Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu has released 6.10 (Edgy Eft). The noticable upgrades from 6.06 are Firefox 2, faster bootup, and a simpler control panel for system settings.

There have been reports on the forums of people having difficulty upgrading from 6.06 (Dapper), but I’ve had no problems here. (I used the CD-ROM to upgrade.) I’m in the middle of some consulting work so can’t upgrade the other machine, but I’ll update this when I complete that install.

Update: the upgrade on my Dell Inspiron 9300 went fine. I got one error during the “apt-get dist-upgrade” step, but running it a second time retrieved the remainder of the packages. Power management is much improved over Dapper.
