The release schedule for Ubuntu 11.10 aka Oneiric Ocelot
has been published on the Ubuntu wiki. The distribution will be released in the middle of October 2011.
For Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, the Ubuntu developers decided to stick with the modified Natty release schedule. That means, to three Alpha versions and two Beta releases. Without further introduction, here is the official release schedule for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot:

As you can see, the work on Ubuntu 11.10 will start in one month after Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) will be released, on April 28th, 2011. For the Oneiric Ocelot, the Ubuntu development team will focus their efforts on improving Unity. Both the 2D and the OpenGL versions of Unity will be available in Ubuntu 11.10.
