Hi Will and all,
Yes … I am still keeping an eye on it with some very capable testers at ubuntuforums. There is one small fly in the ointment. Unity7 is not an official flavor so the admins are slightly blocking the use of the Ubuntu Development Version testing because of 1. It is no longer official flavor and 2. Some various off topic remarks in the last current thread which has been closed. I am currently the admin of the U+1 subteam but I am not an admin or moderator and do not have any authority in decision concerning moderating the forums. I have requested from admin if we I can reopen new thread (testing unity7 on 18.04). If I get yes or no I will report back the status.
As you know Mark has answered in the affirmative that we should keep testing unity7 alongside gnome3 during 18.04 cycle for if I can’t use UDV I find some other way.
btw … unity+gnome3 in 17.10 … just awesome.
