With April's 28 coming closer and closer everyday, the new Ubuntu release is up and coming. The A3 version has been released as of a few days allowing us a preview of the coming release.

A few things we've seen is the Unity Launcher

The img is from the full screen Unity Dash (clicking the Super/Windows) button.

Compiz Fusion is now by default activated allowing not only pretty graphics but also quick shortcuts to workspaces and applications (Super+W/Super+E)

I'm still undecided about the whole missing gnome thing but Unity seems to be evolving nice. Fear of change to something new or the new isn't good enough yet... we'll see.

Banshee (media player) has been added as default media player, which is a nice change as Banshee has been favored over the previous default selection by many users.

Firefox 4 in beta is included. I sure hope we get the final version of Firefox 4 in time for the official release of 11.04.

I will refrain from saying much more since I am hoping to make a proper review when the beta comes along so as to have a better opinion
