Beta version of intrepid ibex has just released guys !!! Not so long ago i told you that alpha version has released. And now one step ahead to final release, i think.

Just like the older version, alpha, this intrepid ibex comes with  GNOME 2.24 desktop interface and  X.org 7.4 windows system. So, it should be faster than older ubuntu version. My favourite from the new Gnome 2.24 is nautilus now has tab !!!. I don’t have to take care many nautilus window in single desktop. Other new feature from Gnome 2.24 is its archive manager now can support more format than before such as ALZ, RZIP, CAB, and the TAR.7Z file types.

Nautilus with tabs
Nautilus with tabs, it’s nice, isn’t it?

But there is some bug for laptop that uses Intel GigE Ethernet hardware. You shouldn’t install this beta version because firmware corruption problem.  Hey, i don’t know how to know my laptop ethernet hadware? Don’t worry, just type code below in your console

lspci | grep 8256[67]

If your console return nothing then you can install this beta version. But if there is something there then don’t install this beta. It’s better you wait for full released version.
