9 features we may see in Ubuntu 11.10 'Oneiric Ocelot'

Katherine Noyes, PC World | May 17, 2011
Canonical's Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal" may still be occupying much of the Linux world's attention, but at last week's Ubuntu Developer Summit in Budapest, the next version of the free and open-source Linux distribution began to take form.

 

9. Ubuntu Software Center

Considered by many one of Ubuntu's "killer features," the Ubuntu Software Center is also slated to get a number of enhancements, including improved integration with Unity and a simplified user interface.

Much of this is still up in the air, of course, but it's fun to start thinking about what we can expect. The first alpha version of Oneiric Ocelot is due on June 2, according to the software's release schedule, with the final release due in October.

I don't know about you, but I'm already champing at the bit to test it out. In the meantime, check out this interview with Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth for some more insight.
