The Ubuntu team has just announced the release of Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support. The hardware enablement offering had been expanded since 12.04, and with 14.04.2, this point release contains an updated kernel and X stack for new installations to support new hardware across all our supported architectures, not just x86.
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 14.04 LTS. Kubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Edubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Xubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Mythbuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.2 LTS, Lubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.2 LTS, and Ubuntu Studio 14.04.2 LTS are also now available. More details can be found in their individual release notes:
Users of Ubuntu 12.04 will be offered an automatic upgrade to 14.04.2 via Update Manager.comments powered by Disqus
