Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Beta Watch

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Beta Watch

Just in case you’re waiting for Beta 1 of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, since it was listed on the official release schedule for March 8, 2018:

March 8th

Warning /!\ Beta 1 Freeze (for opt-in flavors; Monday), Beta 1 (for opt-in flavours)

The official Ubuntu page  “BionicBeaver/ReleaseSchedule” states the release schedule was “last edited 2018-01-02 14:08:04 by tsimonq2” meaning that information hasn’t been updated since the day after New Year’s Day.

In the last two days, there’s been quite a bit of confusion, with beta testers asking where to find Beta 1.

It turns out that Canonical isn’t actually participating in the beta, so none of the daily builds carry a Beta 1 designation. See one basic explanation on Ask Ubuntu. https://askubuntu.com/questions/1013056/where-to-download-ubuntu-18-04-beta-1

We’ll keep readers posted on the  status of the first official 18.04 LTS beta release.
