    Here are the release notes...

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SaucySalamander/ReleaseNotes



    Ubuntu for Phones is also available for the Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10, although there are still some issues with it (see below).


    Those coming from a polished system like Android, which has benefitted from years of finesse and attention, may find themselves frustrated by some of the missing features or limited functionality of this release.

    Things like:
    • Intermittent copy/pasting
    • No spell checking/auto suggestion in keyboard
    • Keyboard is hard to dismiss
    • Portrait mode needs work (status bar doesn't move)
    • Animation can lag at times
    • No boot screen experience
    • No UI to shutdown or restart
    • Limited app-to-app sharing of info

    Well its the only desktop that consistently handles proxies correctly

    Out of interest, do people usually upgrade or clean install for new versions?

    Anyone getting the update showing up?

    No updates showing for Kubuntu 13.04 -> 13.10 and 'do-release-upgrade' returns 'No new release found'.

    Ok odd, muon gui works fine with system proxy, commandline apt work fine with system proxy, but running do-release-upgrade required me to write /etc/apt/apt.conf file with proxy defined. Makes no sense to me...

    Anyway upgrade is running.
