It's Oct. 30 and I Don't See An Updrade To Ibex In Update Manager... Why?

This is the day that Ibex is supposedly released. But, I checked for the Ibex upgrade through update manager in ubuntu and I don't see it... why the hell is that?

The Ubu website didn't show the update this morning either, but it's there now. Quite possibly it'll have filtered across to all the repository mirrors by now, so your question may well have answered itself already.

That said, I'm never in a hurry to update my distro on the day it comes out... for a start, the download will be painfully slow with the world and his dog all trying to update at the same time. And there are always teething problems, and I'd rather not subject my main computer to that. (on the flip site, my play computer for testing stuff has already tried out the 8.10 beta, so I've got no pressing need to update that one either for the time being)
