"The most important rule is to formulate, clearly and precisely, the goal to be reached, and then to retain it unswervingly in mind throughout all the stages of the execution, which are often long and complex." – Roberto Assagioli
The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS (Long-Term Support) for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products. The Ubuntu LTS flavors are also being released today.
In the 12.04.1 release, we’ve added support for the Calxeda ECX-1000 SoC family, so businesses can prepare for a datacentre dominated by low-energy, hyperscale servers by testing their workloads on the new hardware now.
The Ubuntu Cloud Archive also makes its debut – essentially an online software repository from which administrators can download the latest versions of OpenStack for use with the latest long-term support (LTS) release of Ubuntu.
Certified 12.04.1 Ubuntu Cloud images are now available on Amazon Web Services and will soon be posted to Windows Azure as well.
This point release has numerous updates integrated, and updated installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Kubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, Edubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, Xubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, Mythbuntu 12.04.1 LTS, and Ubuntu Studio 12.04.1 LTS are now available as well. More details can be found in their announcements:
