Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty” Herd 5 Available For Testing

By | 2007/03/02

The latest alpha release of Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty” is now available for testing. This release is shaping up to be very impressive! I can say that the previous alpha releases (here, here, here & here) have brought about some impressive new features and have been very stable on my two test machines. I would urge anyone with a spare, non-production machine to help in the testing of Feisty.

More info about Feisty Herd 5 (the last of the alpha series) can be found here:

    Still no fixes or upgrades for the Wacom bugs that has been there since Dapper, even though it’s very simple fixes. 🙁 It’s like artists don’t exist in the Ubuntu world…

    Stoffe – if you’d like to share those simple fixes with me perhaps I can share them with the group and, maybe, petition to get them included.

    Look for the contact page to email me.

    Check out bugs #38336 and #40473 in Launchpad. The things to fix are:

    1. Update really old driver to new, stable version
    2. Tweak the broken /dev path in Xorg.conf
    3. Add a dependency for wacom-tools

    And from what it looks like, Wacom stuff should *just work*, for just about anyone.
