Ubuntu 15.10 Release Candidate Available For Final Bug Testing
Canonical has started sending out Release Candidate ISO images of Ubuntu’s next iteration, the Wily Werewolf (version 15.10) to testers worldwide so they can find out the bugs and report back prior to the official October 22nd release date of the OS.
Ubuntu 15.10 is currently in the Final Freeze stage of development, which means that the OS will not get any new features and updates, except for fixes for critical security vulnerabilities and major bugs that might be discovered during the testing period of the Release Candidate images.
The RC images of all Ubuntu 15.10 flavors including Ubuntu, Ubuntu Core and Lubuntu have been uploaded on Canonical’s ISO tracker for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures as well as PPC in the case of Lubuntu and Ubuntu MATE.
Most of the flavors seem to be pretty much bug free according to early reports except Lubuntu and Xubuntu which have the most bugs among them all, mostly related to the installed core components and applications.
