"In this article I'll overview the latest update of
Karmic, after installing the Alpha 3 and performing a full sudo
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. Currently, Karmic
Koala comes with Linux kernel 2.6.31, GNOME 2.27.5 as desktop
environment, Empathy as the default chat application, OpenOffice
3.1 as the office suite, GIMP 2.6.6 as image editor. Firefox 3.5 is
not yet included in the Karmic repositories, but it will surely be
available in the October release, so currently 3.0.13 is the
version in the repositories.
"Karmic Koala will come with Ubuntu One integration, which is a
service that provides a free 2 GB disk space to Ubuntu users."
