Today sees the release of the latest version of Canonical’s popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, with version 8.10. The ninth release so far, it signals the debut of native 3G support in the standard installation, along with a refined default theme, a guest account (similar to the kind seen in Windows and Mac OS X), and Dynamic Kernel Module Support, meaning that newer versions of the Linux kernel can be used immediately without having to wait for third-party modules to be updated.

Ubuntu 8.10 Server Edition was also released today, bringing with it better support for virtualization, and per-user directory encryption.
