Why long should I linger
    In moment’s swift passing
    When laughter’s brief banquet
    Would lessen life’s burdens
    On parchment with pens
    In memories sweet stains
    There would I sojourn
    On wings of the Egret 

 -- Richard Lloyd Cederberg, "On Wings Of The Egret"

Welcome to Hardy Heron Alpha-1, which will in time become Ubuntu 8.04.

Pre-releases of Hardy 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 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Hardy development cycle. The Alpha images are known
to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while
representing a very recent snapshot of Hardy. You can download it here:

  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (Kubuntu)
  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (Edubuntu)
  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/jeos/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (Ubuntu JeOS)
  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (Xubuntu)
  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/gobuntu/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (Gobuntu)
  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/releases/hardy/alpha-1/ (UbuntuStudio)

See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors for a list of mirrors.

The primary changes from Gutsy have been the re-merging of changes from
Debian and the upgrade to Xorg 7.3.

Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/hardy/alpha1 for information
on changes in Ubuntu and https://wiki.kubuntu.org/HardyHeron/Alpha1/Kubuntu
for changes in Kubuntu.

This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs.  For a
list of known bugs (that you don't need to report if you encounter), please
see: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/hardy/alpha1

If you're interested in following the changes as we further develop
Hardy, have a look at the hardy-changes mailing list:


We also suggest that you subscribe to the ubuntu-devel-announce list
if you're interested in following Ubuntu development. This is a
low-traffic list (a few posts a week) carrying announcements of
approved specifications, policy changes, alpha releases, and other
interesting events.


Bug reports should go to the Ubuntu bug tracker:
