    Yes, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft has been released. I'm downloading it.
    @Kalpik, Where did you get that download URL link from? The Ubuntu
    website still shows the same Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake links for download!!

    ^^ No, they wont ship 6.10 CDs. Also, if you plannin to download in a few days, then download from official links, not these unofficial ones.

    @Kalpik, Thanks for the information. Yes, Kalpik is right. Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support).
    So if you order online you'll get Ubuntu 6.06, not Ubuntu 6.10!!

    @Saurabh.sauron, To upgrade Ubuntu 6.06 to Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft), open the Terminal WIndow & type:

    $ gksu "update-manager -c -d"

    This will upgrade Ubuntu to the latest Ubuntu 6.10

    NOTE: You must be running Ubuntu 6.06 for this to work

    I dunno how that works. But what I do is.
    :arrow: Open the /etc/apt/sources.list in a text editor
    :arrow: Replace All instances of dapper with Edgy
    :arrow: Save it. (Most important thing)
    :arrow: sudo apt-get update
    :arrow: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    ^^ The recommended way is what JGuru told. Only the correct command is gksu "update-manager -c"

    The -d switch checks for development builds too! And we dont want you to get RC instead of the final!

    Anyway, just installed edgy (im on it right now) and its working marvelously!

    Yeah, @Mehul likes to work a bit more to get things done. He likes it that way.
    Translation : The fruit of the labour is sweet.
    Yes, it's very correct.
