*shakes fist* There's still no ISO's available for the Intrepid Ibex Alpha 1 milestone that was scheduled for June 12.
I'm chomping at the bit because the proposed 2.6.25 kernel for Ibex appeared to fix the problems my hardware has with Hardy (and Gutsy for that matter). They've kicked it up a notch to 2.6.26. Wonder if that will re-break things. . .

Woot! Like washing one's car brings rain, posting about a late milestone insures that it will be released

Yes. Well, actually my hardware barfs on Hardy, but worked with the Ibex proposed kernel (2.6.25). I'm anxious to see if it will work with the current Ibex kernel (2.6.26), but didn't want to jump through the hoops to upgrade the kernel in Hardy (the constant freezes make upgrading tedious).

I installed the Intrepid Alpha on a fresh hard drive last night and it is much more stable than Hardy on my hardware. As a matter of fact it's still running ten hours later, whereas Hardy locks up after ten minutes.
I guess it's back to 7.04 until Intrepid's released. . .
