Ubuntu Hardy Heron Alpha 4 released

Kutz Profile: Akutz

On Friday, Canonical released Ubuntu Hardy Heron Alpha 4 to the mirrors. Alpha 4 brings with it many updates to the Ubuntu desktop, but how does it impact enterprise customers?

Alpha 4 is the first release where KVM is an official part of the Ubuntu repositories, and lib-virt and virtmanager have been added to the platform as well. The kernel shipping with Alpha 4 also includes the new virtio instructions which provides incredible performance enhancements when running Ubuntu as a guest OS in a VM.

Review all the changes that Hardy Hero Alpha 4 brings over at the Canonical website.
