Did you enable the backport repository or added third party ones? When a new release is coming, there's a little cruft left in those. I, for example, have three packages which I can't update: virtualbox-ose-modules-generic, k3b and stornbaancoureur. Leaving them there doesn't do any harm, they are bound to be fixed evntually, or superseded by the next Ubuntu release.

@BorgClown: it doesn't, sometimes the audio drags which is bizarre and they removed the fast forward function which sucks. and the gui is hideous. F.A.I.L.

@Wonkobox: Aye, PulseAudio has had its quirks in Hardy Heron. But a big PulseAudio bug was fixed this month, and it will be included in Ibex. With any luck, it will fix the audio in VLC.

Seeing the RC so close, I upgraded to the development version of Intrepid (Disable third-party repositories, run <tt>update-manager -d). Many little details that make it feel more polished than Hardy, I like it. The font smoothing is noticeably improved, and the support for my laptop is much better. So far there's only a package bug with the Cups system, and I think something's funny with FireFox, it throws a harmless assertion sporadically, which I haven't pinpointed the cause yet. Overall, it's a good comeback after the issues they had with Hardy.
