Actually no - its not ready...

The command you have used tests to see if the next development release should be presented as an option to upgrade to.

man upgrade-manager

-d, --devel-release Check if upgrading to the latest devel release is possible

See the linked question for more information.

If you are currently on Natty looking to upgrade to Oneiric, then also see the linked question below on how to do this N.B. is the same process as any upgrade to the next stable release.

The stable LTS v12.04 will be released in April 2012.

ok, thanks, just for the record i discovered that is also possible to select different channels and "types" of releases with the help of the update-manager using the settings button. – Micro Nov 19 '11 at 18:18
