Ubuntu Logo Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, the next major release of Ubuntu, code-named Lucid Lynx, will reportedly include a new "complete beginners manual for Ubuntu". According to the Ubuntu Wiki, the Ubuntu Manual Team are currently working on the new manual which will feature a number of comprehensive guides, how-to's and information on anything a user might need to know after first installing the open source operating system.

The Ubuntu Manual Team wants to make the manual easy to follow and as user-friendly as possible, while keeping with the Ubuntu image. A total of four milestone releases are scheduled for the manual, starting with an alpha release on the 10th of February, 2010, followed by a beta on the 15th of March, a release candidate on the 20th of April and the final release on the 29th of April.

The Ubuntu Manual will be available as a single PDF file and will be updated every six months to coincide with the latest Ubuntu release. Once completed, the manual is expected to be included with Ubuntu by default and should also be available from the Ubuntu download page.
