Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" Is Now Open for Development

Ubuntu developers are wasting no time gearing up for the next Ubuntu release; Matthias Klose of Canonical announced today on the Ubuntu-devel mailing list that Ubuntu 11.10, codenamed Oneiric Ocelot, is now open for development. Below is the announcement in full:

Oneiric is now open for development, with syncs from unstable starting shortly. The development version starts with an updated GCC and binutils, some soname changes (gmp, libffi, boost) and re-enables the default linker settings, which were disabled just before the natty release.

When merging or requesting a sync, please look at the list of known build failures [1]; bugs (tagged `ftbfs') are filed for every packages which fails to build from source. Please close these with the merged uploads.

Please check your uploads in an oneiric chroot, don't just test in a natty environment. See [2] how to setup such a development chroot.
