Mark­ing its fifth point re­lease, Canon­i­cal has an­nounced that Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS is avail­able for down­load and in­stal­la­tion. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was first re­leased back in April 2012. Canon­i­cal will con­tinue sup­port­ing the LTS un­til 2017 with reg­u­lar up­dates from time to time. Also, this is the first ma­jor re­lease for Canon­i­cal since the de­but of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ear­lier this year. The most no­table im­prove­ment in the new re­lease is the in­clu­sion of an up­dated ker­nel (3.13) and X.org stack. Both of th­ese have been traded from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The new re­lease is out now for desk­top, server, cloud and core prod­ucts, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support. In ad­di­tion, the new re­lease also comes with ‘se­cu­rity up­dates and cor­rec­tions for other high-im­pact bugs, with a fo­cus on main­tain­ing sta­bil­ity and com­pat­i­bil­ity with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.’ Mean­while, Kubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, Edubuntu 12.04.5 LTS and Ubuntu Stu­dio 12.04.5 LTS are also avail­able for down­load and in­stall.
