It has been discussed with admin / mods and a majority has ruled to allow open testing of Ultimate Edition 2.8,
for the first time in Ultimate Edition history. It is not to be taken lightly.
This is an alpha release. Do not install it on a production machine.
This is being released to allow users to see new features etc.
It is not suggested to install this release unless you would like to help report bugs.
If you are going to test it,
it is suggested to do so running a Live environment w/o installing it.
I repeat this is an alpha release based on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, it is far from stable,
you can expect to have problems. There are many known issues.
