Dear Ubuntu Studio users,
The Ubuntu Studio team proudly announces the immediate release of Ubuntu Studio 13.10.
This exciting release incorporates the new features listed below.
* A new menu structure which works on any desktop environment. Len Ovens and Mish did a great job on moving various apps to the right submenu and creating new menu icons.
* A new package named ubuntustudio-installer, which allows any person to install our metapackages and can fit into any desktop environment.
* Instead of a settings menu, we have fitted in a new Settings Manager, with all settings in one place.
* When you are in the GRUB Menu, the boot item for Ubuntu Studio will show “Ubuntu Studio” instead of “Ubuntu”. Also, the latest -lowlatency kernel will be always the default boot item in the GRUB boot loader.
* The XFCE session in the LightDM is removed to avoid any confusion with the Ubuntu Studio session.
* A new wallpaper, made by our artwork lead, Zak Frappan.
* The linux-lowlatency kernel has been updated to upstream Linux kernel version 3.11.3.
* We have added GNOME Orca for accessibility purposes, and also Ardour 3 for audio production.

We strongly recommend users currently using Ubuntu Studio 13.04 to upgrade to this release.
You are free to read the release notes in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SaucySalamander/ReleaseNotes/UbuntuStudio. The release notes contain instructions to upgrade, and information that might be useful for users.
Ubuntu Studio 13.10 will be supported for 9 months. User support is available in the Ubuntu Forums, #ubuntustudio IRC channel on Freenode IRC Network, and also at our mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We sincerely hope that you enjoy this release, and thank you for using Ubuntu Studio.

Thanks for your work on this release. I’m happy, more than the other UbuntuStudio releases (12.04, 13.04). This is the best for me at the moment. God Bless
