"Dear Lucid, Our Time Is Right Now"  - Evans Blue

The Ubuntu team is proud to announce the release of Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS,
the fourth maintenance update to Ubuntu's 10.04 LTS release.  This
release includes updated server, desktop, alternate installation CDs 
and DVDs for the i386 and amd64 architectures.

The Kubuntu team is proud to announce the release of Kubuntu 10.04.4.
This release includes updated images for the desktop and alternate
installation CDs and DVDs for the i386 and amd64 architectures.    

This is the last planned maintenance release for the 10.04 LTS series.  
Future security updates and bug fixes will be individually downloadable 
from the Ubuntu archive in the same way as before, but no further 
updates to installation media will be provided for 10.04 LTS.  The next 
LTS release, 12.04 LTS, will be released in April 2012.  We recommend 
that users installing Ubuntu after April install the latest LTS release.
