Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is happy to announce the release of Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop and Server products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

Unlike previous point releases, 14.04.6 is a security-targeted release for the purpose of providing updated installation media which protects new installations from the recently discovered APT vulnerability (USN-3863-1). Many other security updates for additional high-impact bugs are also included, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.6 LTS is also now available. More details can be found in its individual release notes:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes#Official_flavours

Users of Ubuntu on clouds are recommended to launch new instances using the latest images from the 14.04 release stream, which include the fix in APT for USN-3863-1.

Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Core, Ubuntu Kylin, Edubuntu, and Kubuntu. All the remaining flavours will be supported for 3 years.

To get Ubuntu 14.04.6

In order to download Ubuntu 14.04.6, visit:

Users of Ubuntu 12.04 will be offered an automatic upgrade to 14.04.6 via Update Manager. For further information about upgrading, see:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TrustyUpgrades

As always, upgrades to the latest version of Ubuntu are entirely free of charge.

We recommend that all users read the 14.04.6 release notes, which document caveats and workarounds for known issues, as well as more in-depth notes on the release itself. They are available at:
