Saucy Salamander (Ubuntu Codename)
Saucy Salamander is the Ubuntu codename for version 13.10 of the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system. Officially released in October 2013, Saucy Salamander follows the Raring Ringtail (v13.04) release and serves as a unifying update for the operating system by laying the groundwork for accelerating the optimization of Ubuntu for multiple form factors, particularly mobile use.
Saucy Salamander also features a new Mir display server, an Ubuntu replacement for the legacy X server used on Linux and Unix systems. Additional changes include the new Linux 3.11 kernel, a Smart Scopes search feature, full disk encryption as an installation option, and enhanced integration with Ubuntu One, which provides cloud-based access to app, photos and music.
What Exactly Is a Saucy Salamander?
Saucy is an adjective that means impudent or flippant, and can also be considered “cheeky,” or playfully rude or sassy. The salamander is an amphibian with a lizard-like look that has a rare ability for regenerating its lost limbs.
The Saucy Salamander release of Ubuntu Linux was followed by Trusty Tahr (Ubuntu v14.04 LTS) in April 2014.
