  "The most important rule is to formulate, clearly and precisely, 
   the goal to be reached, and then to retain it unswervingly in 
   mind throughout all the stages of the execution, which are often 
   long and complex." - Roberto Assagioli 

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
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:
