Kubuntu 13.04 Alpha 1
Stéphane Graber has announced the availability of the first alpha release of Kubuntu 13.04: "The first alpha of the 'Raring Ringtail' (to become 13.04) has now been released. This alpha features images for Edubuntu and Kubuntu. At the end of the 12.10 development cycle, the Ubuntu flavour decided that it would reduce the number of milestone images going forward and the focus would concentrate on daily quality and fortnightly testing rounds known as cadence testing. Based on that change, the Ubuntu product itself will not have an Alpha-1 release. Its first milestone release will be the final beta release on the 28th of March 2013. Other Ubuntu flavours have the option to release using the usual milestone schedule." See the release announcement and release notes for further information.
