Hello everyone,

Sadly, as most of you know, a regression has been found during testing
[1] which means new images had to be built. The issue has been fixed
in ubiquity+user-setup and new images created [2], but all this means
isos need to be re-tested once again. It's sad, because testing was
going really smooth - we were basically 'ready' yesterday. But well,
what kind of a release would it be without at least one respin, right?

Thanks again to everyone participating!
