We’re now well into 2014 and working on several exciting projects that will be released throughout the year.

In the last few weeks we’ve worked on:

  • Ubuntu Resources: we’ve been working on designs for a new homepage and topic landing pages for the upcoming beta release
  • Canonical website: the new canonical.com is now live!
  • Videos: we’ve finalised the designs for a web video player, which should soon be added to www.ubuntu.com
  • Front end mini sprint: we discussed what we’ve learned from making canonical.com and how it might impact the update of ubuntu.com and of the Web Style Guide

And we’re currently working on:

  • Ubuntu Resources: we are making improvements based on feedback we’ve received and adding some new features, like filtered search
  • Ubuntu 14.04 release: we’ve finalised all the planning for the 20th Ubuntu release and have started to work through the long to-do list in the run up to April
  • Ubuntu.com: we are in the process of updating our Web Style Guide to become responsive, which will mean a responsive www.ubuntu.com
  • Juju GUI: we’re working on improved relationship lines
  • Fenchurch: an initial Juju charm has been released and we’re now enhancing it with additional hooks
  • Cloud sprint: many of us are getting ready for a cloud sprint taking place next week in Cape Town, South Africa
