The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the final beta release of Ubuntu 13.04 Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

Codenamed "Raring Ringtail", 13.04 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

Together with Ubuntu 13.04, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu and Ubuntu Studio also reached Final Beta status today. We also welcome two new flavors, Ubuntu Gnome and UbuntuKylin, which are participating in the Ubuntu release process for the first time this cycle.
