Default wallpaper pack finalized and landed in Ubuntu 12.10
Days ago, the developers landed an initial work on the wallpaper set responsible for enriching and beautifying the Quantal desktop.
The set of default wallpapers have been selected from a community contest, basically, interested users have submitted wallpapers on a dedicated Flickr submission group, pack of backgrounds triaged, voted and selected for the default inclusion in Ubuntu 12.10.
The developers have just published the final adjustments, landing in Quantal a new pack of wallpapers, that are to probably remain as defaults in Ubuntu 12.10.
The new wall pack removes the Blue Dandelion wallpaper, Ubuntu's Iain Farrell stated that "The Blue Dandelion image shortlisted to be included in the next release appears to have been added without the original creator's consent. I have attempted to contact them but they have not replied and the person who submitted it on Flickr has not responded to questions about where the image came from".
The mentioned pack is (along with its inclusion in Quantal) available on http://www.flickr.com/photos/iain/galleries/72157631293260840/
