Trusty Alpha 2 Available for Testing

The second Alpha of Trusty Tahr (to become 14.04 LTS) has now been released for testers and early adopters.

This alpha features images for Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, Xubuntu and Ubuntu Cloud images.

These are not to be used as stable systems but please do test for bugs to report. Always ensure your system is up to date before reporting bugs.
