An anonymous reader writes "The six month cycle that Canonical adheres to for Ubuntu releases has come around again today. Ubuntu 12.10 ‘Quantal Quetzal‘ has been released. There's a whole range of new features and updates, but here's the most important:

- WebApps — treats online services as if they are desktop apps (Gmail, Twitter, Facebook)
- Online Services — control logins to all your services from a single window and get them integrated into search results (e.g. GDocs for file searches)
- Dash Preview — right click any icon, get a detailed preview of what it is
- Linux kernel 3.5.4, GNOME 3.6, Nautilus 3.4, latest Unity
- No more Unity 2D, fallback is the Gallium llvmpipe software rasterizer
- Default apps (Firefox 16.01, Thunderbird 16.01, LibreOffice 3.6.2, Totem, Shotwell, Rythmbox)
- Full disc encryption available during install
- Single, 800MB distribution for all architectures

Download should appear today at some point."
