Ubuntu 12.04.2 has been released by the Ubuntu Team.
The official report is below:
The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.
To help support a broader range of hardware, the 12.04.2 release adds an updated kernel and X stack for new installations on x86 architectures, and matches the ability of 12.10 to install on systems using UEFI firmware with Secure Boot enabled.
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 12.04.2 LTS, Edubuntu 12.04.2 LTS, Xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS, Mythbuntu 12.04.2 LTS, and Ubuntu Studio 12.04.2 LTS are also now available. For some of these, more details can be found in their announcements:
- UEFI support (Supports UEFI-based laptops)
- Secure Boot
- Linux Kernel 3.5 (Kernel used by 12.10)
- More hardware support
- Windows 8 EFI support (Windows 8 Dual Boot with no lag or other issues)
