Ubuntu 9.04 “The Jaunty Jackalope” on April 2009
The news comes as the project last week made available an advance testing version of its Linux distribution, Ubuntu 8.10, the “Intrepid Ibex,” which is scheduled for release in late October.
“As we approach the launch of Ubuntu 8.10, it’s time to create space for future plans… [Jaunty] will be the focus of our efforts from November through to April next year,” wrote the project’s founder and patron Mark Shuttleworth in an email to developers this morning.
Shuttleworth said Ubuntu 9.04 would focus on improving boot time and blurring the line between desktop applications and the incoming wave of web-based software.
“The Jackalope is known for being so fast that it’s extremely hard to catch, and breeds only when lightning flashes,” wrote Shuttleworth. “Let’s see if we can make booting or resuming Ubuntu blindingly quick.”
