Ubuntu 18.10 Codenamed "Cosmic Cuttlefish", 18.10 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
The beta images are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of 18.10 that should be representative of the features intended to ship with the final release expected on October 18th, 2018.
Ubuntu, Ubuntu Server, Cloud Images: Cosmic Final Beta includes updated versions of most of our core set of packages, including a current 4.18 kernel, and much more. To upgrade to Ubuntu 18.10 Beta from Ubuntu 18.04, follow these instructions:
