Ubuntu 12.04.1 (Precise Pangolin) LTS released!


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:
