It's been in beta for months, and it's finally here: Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal was released. There is so much new you may as well just read it yourself.

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 11.04, code-named
"Natty Narwhal". 11.04 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating
the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality,
easy-to-use Linux distribution.

For PC users, Ubuntu 11.04 supports laptops, desktops and netbooks 
with a unified look and feel based on a new desktop shell called "Unity".
This version supersedes Ubuntu Netbook Edition for all PC netbooks.

I can't wait to try this out for myself. If you're interested, download the release here. The press release can be read here, and what's new can be read here.
