The second alpha version of Ubuntu 11.10, code-named “Oneiric Ocelot” has been released by Canonical for testing. It is based on the forthcoming Linux kernel 3.0 and comes with GNOME 3.0 based foundations. However, the default desktop is still the controversial Unity desktop.
The LightDM platform has replaced the Gnome Display Manager as display and login manager and the backup utility Déjà Dup has been included standard installation.
Canonical has also replaced the Evolution email client by Mozilla Thunderbird. Ubuntu 11.10 Alpha 2 also includes Firefox 5, VLC Media Player version 1.1.10 and Mesa 7.11.
Canonical further plans to release another alpha version for developers and two betas before the software is released for general public.
