Next UDS: 11-13 March 2014

My apologies for the delay in announcing the next Ubuntu Developer Summit. The last few months have been somewhat hectic and we wanted to wait for some confirmed conference/sprint dates across Ubuntu Engineering and cross-check those with our release schedule before committing to final dates so we can ensure as many people are there as possible.

I can now confirm that our next Ubuntu Developer Summit will take place from Tues 11th March 2014 – Thurs 13th March 2014. I wanted to let you all know ASAP so you can get it in your calendars. summit.ubuntu.com is updated and ready to start having sessions added or proposed (http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1403/).

This next UDS will look and feel much like the last one; the same tracks and format. The feedback we have received from the last UDS suggests that the changes we made were well received. As ever, your feedback is always welcome.

We would like to ask everyone to get their sessions scheduled by Fri 21st Feb 2014; this gives potential attendees time to coordinate time away from work to join the sessions.

If you want to have a session at UDS, please see http://uds.ubuntu.com/getinvolved/propose-a-session/ for how to propose it. As usual, feel free to ask for help from myself or Michael Hall, David Planella, or Daniel Holbach.

Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

As with 12.04.3, 12.04.4 contains an updated kernel and X stack for new installations on x86 architectures.

As usual, this point release includes many updates, 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 12.04.4 LTS, Edubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, Xubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, Mythbuntu 12.04.4 LTS, and Ubuntu Studio 12.04.4 LTS are also now available. For some of these, more details can be found in their announcements:
