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.
