Subject: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) released
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ubuntu.announce
Date: Thursday 17th April 2014 17:09:54 UTC (over 2 years ago)
The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce our fifth long-term support
release, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core, as well
as Ubuntu 14.04 for Phone and Tablet products.

Codenamed "Trusty Tahr", 14.04 LTS continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.  The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is the first long-term support release with support
for the new "arm64" architecture for 64-bit ARM systems, as well as the
"ppc64el" architecture for little-endian 64-bit POWER systems.  This
release also includes several subtle but welcome improvements to Unity,
AppArmor, and a host of other great software.

Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS includes the Icehouse release of OpenStack,
alongside deployment and management tools that save devops teams time
when deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds,
public clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops.  Several key
server technologies, from MAAS to Ceph, have been updated to new upstream
versions with a variety of new features.

The newest Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu
Kylin, and Ubuntu Studio are also being released today.  More details
can be found for these at their individual release notes:

   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes#Official_flavours

Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Core, Ubuntu Kylin, Edubuntu, and
Kubuntu.  All the remaining flavours will be supported for 3 years.
