QGIS 2.4 available for download!
http://qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
This is the message from our release manager:
QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows.
We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 2.4 'Chugiak'.
The new release contains a lot of new features, tweaks and enhancements. The most noticible improvement is probably the long awaited multithreaded rendering, that lets QGIS leave a much more responsive impression.
This is second release following our new four month release schedule that is meant to make new features and bugfixes available quicker and the development and new releases more predictable. This time the testing phase was especially fruitful and was therefore extended by a week. Thanks to all the tester for their time and good reports.
The source code and binaries for Windows, Debian, Fedora and Ubuntu are already available via the large download link on our home page: http://qgis.org. More packages will follow as soon as the package maintainers finish their work. Please revisit the page if your platform is not available yet.
A word of thanks to our contributors, donors and sponsors

Thanks +Shawn Carter but the very main reason that I have upgraded to 13.04 was that one of my laptop hardware was not supported by the previous versions (i.e. wifi card). So I guess I'll just wait a little while for the supported release and go back to windows for my tasks.

Just consider if you need the Openlayers Plugin before upgrading, it is needing some attention.
