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:

Last but not least, download locations 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.
Desktop effects tries to start but there are no window decorations. I used this link: http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Install_Beryl_on_Ubuntu_Feisty_with_nVidia
to install beryl and emerald-themes. Works great, unlike the compiz that comes with herd 5.
