Ubuntu developers are finalising preparations for the release of the next version -- dubbed Feisty Fawn -- of the popular Linux distribution in mid-April.

 (Submitted by george Wed Feb 28, 2007 )

  Overnight, Ubuntu developer Tollef Fog Heen announced Ubuntu's main software repository had been frozen -- with no changes allowed to the code -- as developers got ready to issue a fifth major test version ("Herd 5") of the next version of Ubuntu.

"As of today, main is frozen while preparing for Herd 5," Heen wrote in an e-mail to the Ubuntu development community. "All uploads to main must be approved by me or another member of the release team, so if you have anything urgent which is needed for Herd 5, please do get in touch ASAP."

Herd 5 of Ubuntu Feisty Fawn is scheduled to debut this Thursday. After that, the Ubuntu team will work on final beta and release candidate versions of Feisty Fawn, with the final code due on April 19th.
