This might be of interest to LUG members who own, or are thinking of getting, a Raspberry Pi: a Raspberry Jam usergroup for the Durham area has been set up and held its first meeting a few weeks ago.  There's another meeting scheduled for 14 November.

Ubuntu 12.10 (a.k.a. Quantal Quetzal) has been released.  The announcement on the Ubuntu website is heavier on marketing than on technical content, but this release gives you tighter integration with web apps and social networks, enhancements to Dash including app previews and online searches, and a single version of Unity supporting both 2D and 3D rendering.
Ubuntu 12.10 is released! Go and download it at http://www.ubuntu.com/ and thank-you to our fantastic community of developers, translators, testers, advocates, docs writers, and more who participated in delivering this release!

Linux 3.5 has been released.  For an explanation of the new features see the KernelNewbies page: http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_3.5
Linux-3.5 is out, go get it.

Changes all over with almost 60% of the patch being drivers (mainly networking, GPU, media and sound, but it's all over), 20+% arch updates, and 20% being "rest" (fs, core kernel code, core networking, tools, docs).

It's been fairly calm, so there shouldn't be any huge surprises there. As usual, you can find descriptions of the new stuff on sites like H-Online or Kernelnewbies. Stuff like filesystem tweaks, CoDel, structured logging, firewire target mode etc etc.

Go for it!
