Golden Rule: analyze, bug, fix

Welcome to 17.10 Beta 2 through to Release Testing

We are now in the beta testing stage of 17.10 - release is October 2017. Testing is now open for intrepid and enthusiastic testers.  If you are confident and like to work out what is wrong - we want you on our team!

This is beta testing - a number of bugs should be expected - we need to find these. That is why we do beta testing. You really should not expect a stable system - do not install alpha/beta and daily ISOs on a production system.  Kind of obvious I know - but we always can see those that don't understand that concept and moan and groan on various blog sites.  Feel free to make them informed!

So you want to join in the fun? Yes, it really is! 😊

  1. Join Ubuntu Budgie bug busters and Subscribe to the mailing list - https://launchpad.net/~budgie-remix-bug-busters
  2. Download the ISO and Install
  3. Test

Simple! Ok lets be serious now.

If you don't think you can do this then we kindly would suggest testing Alphas and Beta's is perhaps not for you.  Please wait until the 17.10 release is available in October.
