Lucid Alpha 1 is coming to town!

Next Thursday, December 10th, Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 is going to be released.

We will be spending next week testing the ISOs and coordinating efforts in #ubuntu-testing Freenode IRC channel.

If you are planning to help with the testing, start syncing your Lucid images today, to avoid network bottlenecks and last minute hurries.
To sync your images, you can use the rsync URLS at, or use Steves Beattie’s script that do all the work for you.

Lucid knows when you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! (and help us testing the candidate images…)

Updated: Steve’s script URL is now fixed.


  1. lol, so, will lucid come in red white and green with a black BOOT screen?

    BTW, If we are really good, will it work without a hitch to upgrade from karmic on a running system? (slaps self for silly question xD).

  3. I recommend using zsync instead of rsync these days, because it will work on any mirror (it doesn’t need to run an rsync server, just plain HTTP) and does the expensive calculation on the client side, which offers better performance.

    I believe Steve Beattie’s script uses zsync now.

  5. The link to Steves Beattieā€™s script gives a Internal Server Error, can you provide the correct URI ?
