Xubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" has been unleashed together with its mother distro Ubuntu. Xubuntu has always been my favorite distro because it has all the exciting features of Ubuntu inside a speedy and lightweight Xfce desktop environment.

This latest version of Xubuntu is indeed loaded with new goodies such as:

* Improved Multimedia Features

* Abiword upgraded to version 2.6 with new features such as: improved support for Microsoft Office and OpenOffice documents; ability to embed gnumeric charts into your documents; the ability to open files on remote shares, ie. samba, ftp or ssh shares; and plenty more.

* Catfish (light-weight search front-end) integration

* Using the very latest X.Org 7.4

* Totem BBC plugin

* Samba 3.2

* DKMS - allow kernel drivers to be automatically rebuilt when new kernels are released

* New Network Manager with easier administration of 3G connections, PPP and PPPOE connections, and more.

* Linux kernel 2.6.27

* and much more...

With the release of Intrepid Ibex, Xubuntu also gets a home page redesign. I really love this new look that I think it's worthy to be included in my 'Best-designed Linux Distribution Websites' list.

Xubuntu.org revitalized

So what are you waiting for? Go get Xubuntu 8.10 now!
