Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Not being a developer myself, all I could say about how the project progresses would come directly from the mailing lists. For that reason, I've decided to make an end-user blog instead.
This post is only to inform anybody who's interested as to what...
According to this page, the FinalFreeze/KernelFreeze/NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline for the Natty Narwhal (Ubuntu 11.04) will be on April 14, 2011 (A.K.A. my 18th birthday).
