Xubuntu 12.10 alpha 3 released

The Xubuntu team is proud to announce the Alpha3 release of Xubuntu 12.10, Quantal Quetzal!

We don’t have any major changes from the Alpha2, but there are a few known issues you should be aware of:

  • There are no alternate images for this release
  • The image is still oversized for 700M CDs (see related bugs: 1028486, 1029552), please use a USB stick, DVD or other method for installing these oversized images
  • All applications using Gtk3 currently have some mismatched colors in menus and buttons because of a bug in the Unico engine (1016713). A fix has been applied upstream but has not yet made it to Xubuntu.
  • The installer locks when attempting to do the “Install Xubuntu 12.10 alongside…” auto-resize (1027461), manual method for editing partitions and resizing works

Visit the download page to give it a try. Be sure to report your testing results to help the Xubuntu developers – see the ISO testing tracker. Bugs can be reported in Launchpad. If you are looking for support, please see the #ubuntu+1 IRC channel on irc.freenode.net. Before testing this release, make sure to review the release notes.
