=== Ubuntu Touch OS wins its first smartphone partner ===

Stephen Shankland of CNET informs us that Mark Shuttleworth has
confirmed that Ubuntu Touch has its first official smartphone partner,
though the partner remains unnamed. Four other brands are also in line
to become partners in the near future. With carrier support from
nearly all the big names, Ubuntu Touch is positioned to make a big
splash when the first phones begin shipping next year.

=== Confirmed: Canonical Is Forking GNOME Control Center And GNOME
Settings Daemon For Ubuntu 14.04 ===

Andrew of WebUpd8 informs us that Robert Ancell has confirmed
Canonical will be forking GNOME Control Center (commonly known as
System Settings) and GNOME Settings Daemon for the upcoming 14.04
release of Ubuntu. Recently Ubuntu GNOME has been blocked from
shipping the latest releases due to the need to have them heavily
patched for Ubuntu, as a result from now on Ubuntu GNOME will be able
to do so without conflicts.

http://www.webupd8.org/2013/12/confirmed-canonical-is-forking-gnome.html

OMG! Ubuntu also covers this news in the next article.

=== Ubuntu Confirm GNOME Control Centre Fork for 14.04 ===

Joey-Elijah Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! writes that Ubuntu has confirmed
they will be forking the GNOME Control Center for the upcoming 14.04
release. Through the 13.10 release, they’ve been shipping a heavily
patched version and have opted to simply fork it rather than
continuing to apply updates and patches. He notes that on the plus
side, it will no longer conflict with the vanilla version being
shipped with Ubuntu GNOME.
