Det er nu muligt at hente den kommende Ubuntu 11.10 distribution i en public beta version. Den indeholder GNOME 3.1.5 samt kernel 3.0.0-9.15 og er både i en 32 bit og en 64 bit version.
Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 1 enables "multiarch" support for installing 32-bit library and application packages on 64-bit systems. For all amd64 installs and upgrades, select 32-bit software, including skype and flash, will be installable directly using the same 32-bit packages that are used on i386 installations, without the need to install the ia32-libs compatibility package. For users this means 32-bit libraries will always be available at the same time as their 64-bit counterparts, even in the case of security updates, and users will only need to install those 32-bit libraries needed by the applications they have installed.
