Ubuntu 13.04 Will Have Linux Kernel 3.8

Ubuntu-13-04-Will-Have-Linux-Kernel-3-8-2The newest operating system from Canonical, Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), is shipping with Linux kernel 3.5, but the upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) could arrive with Linux kernel 3.8.

According to Michael Larabel from phoronix.com, the upcoming Ubuntu 13.04, due for release on April 25th, 2013, will probably feature the Linux 3.8 kernel, which is not even in development stage yet.

The Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event for Ubuntu 13.04 ended today, with a big party, where (most probably)
all attendees enjoyed a fresh drink and delicious appetizers.

But the news is still coming from UDS-R, as today we’re happy to report that Ubuntu 13.04 will be powered by Linux kernel 3.8.

The current stable release of the Linux kernel is now 3.6, but the development version is now 3.7, which will reach final stage sometime at the beginning of 2013 or, if we’re lucky, in December 2012, just in time for the holidays.

Apparently, the final version of Linux kernel 3.8 will be released in mid-March 2013, and the first RC (Release Candidate) version will be made available for testing in January 2013, right after the winter holidays.

In the same news, the Ubuntu developers also discussed whether Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) will support Linux x32 ABI or not, which may be enabled in the kernel.

Dubbed Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 13.04 will be the 18th release of the Ubuntu operating system, and it will see the light of day on April 25, 2013.

As we’ve announced yesterday, Ubuntu 13.04 will have only a Beta version available for testing, due for release on March 28th, 2013, which should probably incorporate the final release of Linux kernel 3.8.

Stay tuned for more news from the Ubuntu Developer Summit event for Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) on our Linux section.

    Unfortunately, several States do not require motor trade any real maintenance.
    For example, in California, making changes to their Mechanic Lien Laws.

    Before doing any kind of despair.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think of if you added some great pictures or videos
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
    but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of
    the very best in its niche. Terrific blog!

    If you have any pressing queries relating to minibus hire
    London companies promise so much yet fail to keep their vehicle running costs
    to a minimum. Anyone driving an affected vehicle anywhere in greater
    London will need to offer minibus hire services are also often booked
    for weddings, christenings and family parties.

    The procedure is comprised of only a few simple injections,
    and you can be back on your feet and in public within minutes after leaving your
    doctor. The breast are very sensitive and Consequently the need to make sure that one is using the right type
    of bra. Trying out different procedures could also be tricky, and painful; and the
    decision to undergoing invasive surgery cannot be an easy
    one.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
    on. Any recommendations?

    With ad groups that are more tightly focused it
    is possible to quickly spot poor performers and react accordingly by lowering bids, adding
    various negatives, adjusting match type or writing
    new ad copy. Now, in case your pages are not included
    in the serp's, you will naturally be missing out on some site
    visitors in your pages. Targeted traffic means those customers who
    will be searching for a similar offerings you sell.

    When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on every time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from
    that service? Cheers!
