Release crew model our new banners

It’s release week! That means that the Millbank London office and home office locations this week are a buzz with activity getting things ready for our big release on Sunday.

The members of the kernel team, and others, are modeling our very swanky new banners which are going out to eligible loco teams in the not too distant future. They should stand out at promotional events and attract some attention 🙂

Away from cool assets being produced we have been focussed this week on the release and by now the beautiful linux desktop you early adopters are already looking at is hopefully starting to feel like home. We can’t wait to hear what you think and hope that you love using Maverick.

So there’s this big release happening on Sunday but I’ve just heard about another release that’s happening on Sunday that’s just as big! The new theme will hit the Ask Ubuntu stack exchange site and we’re really pleased with it!

You can find out more about the selected style by visiting this page on stack exchange.

Big thank you to Mat on our side for working on this and Jin Yang at Stackexchange for helping realise these designs in glorious HTML in time for the release. You’re a splendid fellow for working so hard and so late into the night!

More next week, we still need to do some work for the release, so enjoy, tell us about your release party and roll on UDS and Natty!
