Canonical has announced the release of final beta of upcoming version of Ubuntu, the Ubuntu 15.10 aka Wily Werewolf. The final beta of Ubuntu 15.10 is available for download and testing, stated Canonical’s Adam Conrad.

The final beta of Ubuntu 15.10 is shipped with Linux Kernel 4.2.1 and is the last development build of the upcoming version of Ubuntu operating system. Sharing the details of this release, Conrad wrote,
“Codenamed “Wily Werewolf”, 15.10 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
This beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavours.
The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 15.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on October 22nd, 2015. ”
He also mentioned about a ‘serious’ bug present in the beta, which he said, will be fixed before the final release. He said, “Depending on your location, Ubiquity may trigger a ubi-timezone error during install. If you encounter this, the recommended work-around is to install without an active network connection. ”
