Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) is released & available for download.

The Ubuntu team announced Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop and Server editions and Ubuntu Netbook Remix, continuing Ubuntu‘s tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.
