The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the beta pre-release of the
Ubuntu 19.10 Desktop, Server, and Cloud products.
Codenamed "Eoan Ermine", 19.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard
at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
This beta release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop,
Server, and Cloud products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu
Budgie, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavours.
The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD
build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of
19.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship
with the final release expected on October 17th, 2019.
Ubuntu, Ubuntu Server, Cloud Images:
Eoan Beta includes updated versions of most of our core set
of packages, including a current 5.3 kernel, and much more.

The Ubuntu 19.10 Beta images can be downloaded at:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/19.10/ (Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server on x86)
This Ubuntu Server image features the next generation Subiquity server
installer, bringing the comfortable live session and speedy install of the
Ubuntu Desktop to server users at last.
Additional images can be found at the following links:

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/19.10/beta/ (Non-x86, and d-i Server)
As fixes will be included in new images between now and release, any
daily cloud image from today or later (i.e. a serial of 20190927 or
higher) should be considered a beta image. Bugs found should be filed
against the appropriate packages or, failing that, the cloud-images
project in Launchpad.
