The official support for the Saucy Salamader ends today, 17 July. Canonical recommends upgrade your older Ubuntu versions, and so do we, for the official Lubuntu flavour. Instructions about the upgrade process can be found here. Get yourself into the Trusty wagon and re-start with an improved and more stable environment.
Ubuntu One is about to close. Canonical can’t continue offering this service anymore. This is really annoying to all of us, who trusted in their (excellent, by the way) service, the high transfer ratio and the space. But for this blog this can be awful, because all the links in this site are pointing to files hosted in this service, and now I have to migrate all of them.
I’d like to apologize for advance if any link may be unavailable, it’ll be temporary. I’ll ask for your comprehension and I’m open to any advice or call of attention at any missing link. Don’t hesitate to ping me about broken links, I’ll fix them as soon as posible.
You can read all the information at the Ubuntu One blog.
After a few years working, three releases with a hard work within, and a really great effort it arrives the support from Canonical (making it official). Mark Shuttleworth said our work would become a reality and being part of the Ubuntu familyt would arrive. Words from Julien Lavergne, leader of the project:
After 2 years of work, and 3 “unofficial” releases (10.04, 10.10 and 11.04), we had recently an official go from the Technical Board and ISO images are now made like other Ubuntu flavors. I hope the 11.10 will be the 1st official release of Lubuntu as a member of the Ubuntu family.
Also, these news arrived to almost every Ubuntu dedicated blog and news feeder, as WebUpd8, Lffl (grazie mille, Roberto) or UbuntuLook, for mentioning some. So, from this blog, I would like to thank to all readers, those who just interested about the project and other ones who pointed some suggestions and changes for improving the desktop look and feel. Also would thanks to the crew, the Lubuntu and LXDE teams. And special thanks to Julien for believing in me all these years.
Thank you very much!
