The naming of Ubuntu 11.10 was announced on 7 March 2011 by Mark Shuttleworth. He explained that Oneiric means "dreamy", and it was scheduled to released today and now finally it's here so users can now download it.
It's also to update you that Ubuntu 11.10 does not include the classic GNOME desktop as a fall back to Unity, unlike Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Instead, 11.10 includes a 2D version of Unity as a fallback for computers that lack the hardware resources for the Compiz-based 3D version. Ubuntu 11.10 runs as a shell for GNOME 3 on top of GNOME 3 libraries, unlike in Ubuntu 11.04 where it ran as a shell for GNOME 2. Moreover, users will also be able to install the entire GNOME 3 stack along with GNOME Shell directly from the Ubuntu repositories, to be presented with a "GNOME 3 desktop" choice at login.
There also have been many changes made to Unity, including the placement of the Ubuntu button on the Launcher instead of on the Panel, the autohiding of the window controls (and the global menu) of maximized windows, the introduction of more transparency into the Dash (and the Panel if the Dash is opened), and the introduction of window controls for the Dash
