Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” Alpha 3 Is Released
Pre-releases of Natty are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
Alpha 3 is the third in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Natty development cycle.
Alpha 3 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing. Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/natty/alpha3 for more detailed information on the new features and known issues with this development release of Natty.
New packages showing up in this release include:
* LibreOffice 3.3.1
* Unity 3.6.0
* Linux Kernel 2.6.38-rc6.
* Upstart 0.9
* Dpkg 1.16.0-pre + multi-arch snapshot
The Alpha images are known to be reasonably free of show stopper CD build
or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of Natty.
You can download Alpha 3 ISOs here:

Enjoy your testing 🙂
