The Ubuntu team is proud to announce the Releases Candidate of Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Edubuntu 6.06 LTS - codenamed "Dapper Drake". The Release Candidate includes installable live Desktop CDs, server images, alternate text-mode installation CDs and an upgrade wizard for users of the current stable release.
We consider this release candidate complete, stable and suitable for testing by any user. We would especially recommend that current Ubuntu 5.10 ("Breezy Badger") users and developers use the upgrade procedure described in the announcement. Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Edubuntu 6.06 LTS will be the first Ubuntu releases with long-term support: three years on the desktop, and five years on the server.
The purpose of the Release Candidate is to solicit one last round of testing before the final release. Please read the full announcement for download locations and upgrade information. Read more about the features available in this release here.
