I’ve just published the most recent Community Donations Report highlighting where donations made to the Ubuntu community have been used by members of that community to promote and improve Ubuntu. In this report I’ve included links to write-ups detailing how those funds were put to use.

Over the past two years these donations have allowed Ubuntu Members to travel and speak at events, host local events, accelerate development and testing, and much more. Thank you all who have donated to this fund. You can help us do more, by donating to the fund and helping spread the word about it, both to potential donors and potential beneficiaries.

This morning I chatted with Laura Czajkowski and we quickly figured out that wily is our 23rd Ubuntu release. Crazy in a way – 23 releases, who would’ve thought? But on the other hand, Ubuntu is a constant evolution of great stuff becoming even better. Even after 11 years of Ubuntu I can still easily get excited about what’s new in Ubuntu and what is getting better. If you have read any of my recent blog entries you will know that snappy and snapcraft are a combination too good to be true. Shipping software on Ubuntu has never been that easy and I can’t wait for snappy and snapcraft to reach into further parts of Ubuntu. The 16.04 (‘xenial‘) cycle is going to deliver much more of this. Awesome!

But for now: enjoy the great work wrapped up in our wily 15.10 package. Take it, install it, give it to friends and family and spread great open source software in the world. :-)

When you download it, please consider making a donation. And if you do, please consider donating to “Community projects“. This is what allows us to help LoCos with events, fly people to conferences and do all kinds of other great things. We have docs online which explain who can apply for funding for which purposes and what exactly each penny was spent on previously.
