Mark Shuttleworth has announced the next release of Ubuntu 11.10. Oneiric Ocelot will be the codename of the next release of Ubuntu.
For the next cycle, I think we’ll leave the oceanic theme behind. The “oddball octopus”, for example, is a great name but not one we’ll adopt this time around. Perhaps in 13 years time, though!
Oneiric means “dreamy”, and the combination with Ocelot reminds me of the way innovation happens: part daydream, part discipline.
Mark encourage all testers and users to focus and report all bugs as the Natty release approaches.
