Ubuntu 9.04叫Jaunty Jackalope

Ubuntu创始人Mark Shuttleworth周一宣布了Ubuntu 9.04的代号,Jaunty Jackalope(得意的鹿角兔)。

Ubuntu发布的周期为6个月,9.04将于明年4月推出。Shuttleworth相信Ubuntu将能与Windows和Mac OS X展开竞争,他预计在接下来的一年中,这款开源Linux发行版将安装在1百万台机器上。在邮件列表中,他表示“兔子武士将是我们走进新一年的护身符,我们有理由期待Ubuntu将安装到数百万台机器上,有理由期待消费者的软件体验将比得上传统的软件供应商——微软和苹果。栏杆很高,但我们会抓住机会跳过它”。

传说中的得意洋洋的Jackalope就是这家伙:

      据Ubuntu创始人Mark Shuttleworth透露,Ubuntu
9.04将重点缩短系统启动时间,并更好地集成网络应用程序。他还表示,2009年会有几百万计算设备安装Ubuntu,这给他们带来了不小的压力,迫使
开发团队更好地改善系统质量,从各方面都不能输给微软Windows和苹果Mac OS。

    As we approach the launch of Ubuntu 8.10, it’s time to create space for
    future plans, and so I’m writing to introduce you to The Jaunty Jackalope.

    Jaunty, the code name for what will most likely become Ubuntu 9.04, will
    be the focus of our efforts from November through to April next year. We
    will be gathering forces in Mountain View on 8th – 12th December to
    survey the upstream landscape and finalize Jaunty plans, enjoying the
    excellent hospitality of Google and Silicon Valley’s abundance of talent
    and innovation. The Ubuntu Developer Summit is the social and strategic
    highlight of each release cycle and it would be a great pleasure to
    welcome you there. Jono Bacon has written up a
    http://www.jonobacon.org/?p=1278 guide to sponsorship for those who
    would have a substantial amount to offer at the Summit.

    The Warrior Rabbit is our talisman as we move into a year where we can
    reasonably expect Ubuntu to ship on several million devices, to
    consumers who can reasonably expect the software experience to be
    comparable to those of the traditional big OSV’s – Microsoft and Apple.
    The bar is set very high, and we have been given the opportunity to leap
    over it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to shine, and we want to make
    sure that the very best thinking across the whole open source ecosystem
    is reflected in Ubuntu, because many people will judge free software as
    a whole by what we do.

    There are some specific goals that we need to meet in Jaunty. One of
    them is boot time. We want Ubuntu to boot as fast as possible – both in
    the standard case, and especially when it is being tailored to a
    specific device. The Jackalope is known for being so fast that it’s
    extremely hard to catch, and breeds only when lightning flashes. Let’s
    see if we can make booting or resuming Ubuntu blindingly quick.

    Another goal is the the blurring of web services and desktop
    applications. "Is it a deer? Is it a bunny? Or is it a weblication – a
    desktop application that seamlessly integrates the web!" This hare has
    legs – and horns – and we’ll be exploring it in much more detail for
    Jaunty. We have already laid some foundations for weblications in the
    online services discussions that took place in Prague, but since we
    fully expect those services to ship in 9.04 the discussion will be that
    much more intense in Mountain View.

    Those bizarre-but-fearsome antlers might well remind one of the
    intricate pattern of collaboration between developers in a distributed
    version control system. So it’s fitting that Jaunty will see us move all
    of Ubuntu into Bazaar. For the first time, any developer will be able to
    branch any Ubuntu package with a single bzr command, publish their
    changes, and perhaps even publish builds of that package in their own
    Package Archive. We will also make the developer community structure of
    Ubuntu much richer – in addition to MOTU and core-dev, we are
    introducing ways for developers to participate in specific applications,
    either at the package-upload level or at the version-control level.
    Whatever your level and specialisation of interest, we’ll make sure that
    you can participate accordingly.

    December’s UDS is likely to be packed full of interesting people and
    ideas. I very much look forward to seeing everyone there. "There he
    goes! That way!"

    Mark
