Ubuntu 8.10 to be "Intrepid Ibex"

It’s official, the next Ubuntu release will be code named “Intrepid Ibex

An extract from Mark Shuttleworth’s announcement:

“Our desktop offering will once again be a focal point as we re-engineer the user interaction model so that Ubuntu works as well on a high-end workstation as it does on a feisty little subnotebook. We’ll also be reaching new peaks of performance – aiming to make the mobile desktop as productive as possible.

A particular focus for us will be pervasive internet access, the ability to tap into bandwidth whenever and wherever you happen to be. No longer will you need to be a tethered, domesticated animal – you’ll be able to roam (and goats do roam!) the wild lands and access the web through a variety of wireless technologies. We want you to be able to move from the office, to the train, and home, staying connected all the way. “

Update: Announcement in: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2008-February/025136.html
