"The first and only Release Candidate for Ubuntu 10.10, aka Maverick Meerkat, was released yesterday. The final release will come out in only 10 days - Ubuntu has decided to make a Sunday release, to take advantage of the 10/10/10 date, rather than their usual Thursday release schedule. As such, this Release Candidate is expected to be a lot getter than most; the release announcement describes it as complete, stable, and suitable for testing by any user.

"The installer has been overhauled for this release, with the biggest change being that it does an "asynchronous" installation. After asking just enough questions to determine the language, keyboard and disk layout, it actually starts copying the distribution to disk while at the same time continuing the dialog to get the timezone, user name and password, and the like. Nice idea."
