Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha 3 has just been released released. There aren't too many changes since alpha 2 - at least visually and since we just posted the changes in Unity, there won't be separate screenshots for this alpha release.
Most of the development - just like it was with alpha 2 - focused on Ubuntu Netbook Edition. Ubuntu Desktop got some improvements to the Sound Indicator, Ubuntu Software Center and that's about it while Unity in Ubuntu Netbook Edition got some major changes, there's a new Indicator DateTime and so on.
To see what's new in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat / Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10, see:

It's also worth mentioning that Ubuntu 10.10 will ship with Firefox 3.6 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition won't have Chromium by default after all (it will also come with Firefox 3.6). And finally: the new Ubuntu 10.10 font is already available to test for everybody with a Launchpad account.
