  *Thursday, October 26, 2017*

This newsletter is to provide a status update from the Ubuntu Foundations
Team.  There will also be highlights provided for any interesting subjects
the team may be working on.


If you would like to reach the Foundations team, you can find us at the
#ubuntu-devel channel on freenode.


    Highlights

* Artful Aardvark, 17.10, has released.  Check out the release notes for
  more info.
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArtfulAardvark/ReleaseNotes

* Subiquity has had several updates to make it prettier, easier to use and
  translatable.

   * Quick instructions to try it out:

     urlbase=http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-server/daily-live/current
     isoname=$(distro-info -d)-live-$(dpkg --print-architecture).iso
     wget ${urlbase}/${isoname}
     dd if=/dev/zero of=target.img bs=1G count=0 seek=10
     kvm -m 1024 -boot d -cdrom ${isoname} -hda target.img -serial stdio

   * Any help with translations at
     https://translations.launchpad.net/subiquity/trunk/+translations would
     be appreciated!
